Great guitar, set up not that good. Bridge has bent saddle crew, don't know how they could have missed that in the settup. Other than that great guitar.

    Excellent Guitar Wall Hanger

    By NighthawkChris

    from Detroit, MI

    About Me Experienced

    Comments about Gibson Les Paul Classic 2018 Electric Guitar:

    These are great buy for hanging your guitar. They are easy to install into a piece of drywall - use anchors rated to support around 60lbs to be on safe side. Once I screwed these into the wall, the hanger was solid and had no worries putting my Gibson's neck into the fork to be suspended. I have to this date bought 4 of these and they are a quality buy. I would go with no other hanger after seeing how well these work out.

        Easily one of the best instruments I have ever owned. Great feel and terrific tone with p-90s. I also really appreciate the non_weight relief body - this feels like a Les Paul.

            I've always considered myself to be a Fender guy (2 Teles and a Strat), but this year I acquired a ES-339 which I flat out love and just two days ago I purchased this beautiful instrument and I am just amazed at the quality and playability. Still love my Fenders, but Gibson has made me a believer. I can't put these guitars down.

                Comments about Gibson Les Paul Classic 2018 Electric Guitar:

                The 2018 Les Paul Classic is a great guitar. To me, the P90's were the draw to purchasing this guitar as they make this guitar sound great for jazz, country, and rock. I have enjoyed this guitar since the first day I purchased it. It is a quality built guitar as well and the finishes are very aesthetically pleasing. I purchased a goldtop, but I was highly debating with myself whether I wanted the pelham blue or ebony - which are equally good looking. All in all, I really like this guitar and have had no regrets of making this purchase.

                The ONLY thing I wasn't a huge fan of was the fact that these come set up for hybrid 9's (strings). The solid core strings (1st string to 3rd string) are light gauge, but the wound strings (4th to 6th) are like you would expect in a 10-46 set. I wasn't too interested in re-slotting the nut, so I have lived with the 9's and have grown accustomed to them. Regardless, they definitely don't make the guitar sound bad. It just feels different when all of your guitars that you have been playing with are using 10-46 strings.

                Overall, once I tried this guitar out, I knew I had to have one.
