Like just about everyone who shells out good money for a nice, American made guitar I'm not thrilled with the fact that this guitar ships with a gig bag. I purchased a similarly priced Gibson SG bass a few years ago, and it came with a nice hard shell case. That said, it's the best gig bag I've ever seen. Plus there are lots of reasonably priced after market LP hard cases.
Gibson has done an amazing job with weight reduction on this - and some other - Les Paul models without sacrificing tone or sustain. Technically, it's now a semi-hollow guitar. Some LP lovers are never going to be happy with that, but I love it. I can enthusiastically recommend this guitar. Looks great, feels great, sounds great.
Packaged well. I did not know that it was coming from Japan, but it was delivered faster than the estimated time. Great fitting hardshell case. You can actually feel a slight vacuum effect when you remove it from the case. It goes back in the case with that same "whoomph" sound. I didn't want to play it because it's a gift. I did check out the finish, it's perfect. Quality Grover locking tuners are the best out there, so props for Gibson using them. Guitar is so light and thin. I wish I could have afforded an SG when I first started playing. I couldn't, but I can give one to my nephew and watch his jaw drop.
Gibson has taken some hits in the last few years. Quality control was spotty at best. I know this because I have played them in music stores and have passed on buying one. These are not the Gibsons from that era, these are back to the Gibsons of their glory days. I'm so impressed and happy with my purchase. It makes me want to keep this guitar and then pass it down to my nephew in a few years. I'm really going back and forth with the idea. Great guitar, great seller (who will answer your emails in a timely fashion) and a great overall experience. The guitar is just perfect. If you're on the fence about buying a new guitar from this seller, Marshmallow Juice, (great name!) I can tell you that I'm really impressed. Again it ships from Japan, so it will take a little longer to get it to you. Well worth the wait. Peace and chicken grease.
I was originally very skeptical of buying a guitar online without playing it first and as many will know in the past few years gibsons quality has dropped. Im happy to say this 2017 tribute is not very expencive and was really above and beyond.weird as it might sound i absolutely love the smell and feel, it also comes in beautiful case which i kinda dont want to use because im scared of damageing it. The guitar plays like a nice 1500 les paul gibson and its unforgiving (with regards to makeing mistake s) as the pick ups will hear everything. Its held tuned pretty well the dials are nice.
I would say this is a great introduction guitar to les paul if you have never owned one.
