    Comments about Gibson 2016 Les Paul Traditional HP Electric Guitar:

    This is a beautiful guitar, that looks and sounds great. It really is the nicest guitar I have ever played. I wish the top looked as good as the one in the picture, but its still pretty nice. The Gforce tuners are OK, but I find they still need a little manual tuning most of the time. I will likely switch them out pretty soon
