Comments about Gibson Limited Run L6-S Electric Guitar:
Humbucker mode: Strong tone with lots of bite! Single-coil mode: Nice full tone, not too thin. Position #3 (neck and bridge PU's in parallel) approaches the "quack" tone of a Strat. The #2 tone control is a bass cut that reduces the low frequencies. Nice for varying the single-coil tone or when playing chords. Back it off from 10 for playing rhythm, crank it up to 10 for leads! Great alternative to a Les Paul!
