    Comments about Gibson Les Paul Faded 2018 Electric Guitar:

    Okay so where's the bling? You ask. Well, some women wear blue jeans and tee shirts and no makeup. And impress me more than the high maintenance ones. I chose this one to call my own. It is made here in the USA. Has cryogenically treated frets that were dressed in a PLEK machine. Has a solid mahogany body with a maple cap, not a maple veneer like the Epiphone Les Paul's made in China. I have been playing a 1985 Ibanez Proline series 1440 Strat for 33 years and never realized how inferior it is compared to a genuine Gibson. The sustain is incredible. The intonation is right on the money and action is low and fast. My playing has improved in two short weeks and I play more often. Heads up to anyone considering an Epiphone. Save an extra 3 0r 4 hundred bucks and get the Gibson. You will not be disappointed.

        Comments about Gibson Les Paul Faded 2018 Electric Guitar:

        Came across this Gibson at the local GC while looking to upgrade my fixed bridge PRS SE 245 standard (a solid guitar in its own right). What a great playing guitar, unexpectedly light for a Les Paul, but with tons of sustain and notes that seem to ring for a day. I cant say enough about how great the is thing feels. The action on the frets is perfect, with no fret buzz, and super smooth and easy playability.
