        Comments about Gibson Limited Edition Les Paul Koa Electric Guitar:

        I bought this right off the rack at GC. I had been looking for a Koa top guitar after a trip to Hawaii. I had inquired about having one built. This is by far the best LP I've ever owned and one of the best guitars I've ever owned. Non-weight relived, super thick heavy top, great burstbuckers, gold parts, locking tuners, 7 ply binding. Mine also has an amazing top, much better than any maple top I've seen. Koa is also produces a much darker sound and with more sustain. Really happy I purchased this guitar!

          Comments about Gibson Limited Edition Les Paul Koa Electric Guitar:

          Absolutely beautiful guitar. #94 of 150 and I'm glad it's a great one. This is my first Gibson and I could not be happier with it. New to me, may be old to you. But I am completely blown away with how great it looks, feels, plays, and sounds. I've heard a lot about Gibson and it's always 50/50 good/bad. I'm glad this is the good "50". Thank you Gibson and thank you Pittsburgh Guitar Center and all the folks that helped me out. Awesome experience, awesome people, awesome guitar.
