    Comments about Gibson Custom True Historic 1960 Les Paul Reissue Aged Electric Guitar:

    An absolute pleasure to play. The quality of the instrument is spectacular from the beautiful select cut Maple top to the gourgous mahogany body is something to see. The long tennon neck joint along with the use of Hide glue make a significant difference in the sustain. Unplugged the instrument just sings. I have had other Les Paul's and would have issues with tuning not with this guitar I literally can play it for hours with very little to no adjustment at all. The pickups are incredible and with the tone and volume knobs you can dial in whatever you'd prefer. I highly recommend this it feels as if I own an actual vintage 60' Les Paul the Craftsman at Gibson Custom really did a outstanding job on this guitar.
