I bought the Natural Mahognay wood this guitar is beautiful!

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Special Plus 2016 Limited Run Electric Guitar:

Absolutely Beautiful! It took a long time to get my Les Paul again and I picked this one. I got the $300 off and traded a bass and guitar so it all worked out great for me. I cannot say enough about this guitar. It is a solid piece of Mahogany no maple top. Thicker Rosewood neck craftsmanship was super! Not to heavy just solid. It came with the gold warranty and a picture of the guitar being inspected at the shop which was cool. I was a little nervous because the less expensive models had a few quality errors in reviews. This guitar rocks and is perfect! Thanks Gibson and Guitar Center!
