      Comments about Gibson 2017 Les Paul Custom Studio Electric Guitar:

      Overall, this was a great guitar, but it just didn't win me over. When I pulled it out of its gig-bag, the first thing that struck me was that the headstock seemed disproportionally small. My friend emphasized how this was an 'improvement' that keeps the strings on a straighter path to the tuning pegs, but for me it felt like a 'value-engineered' shortcut to save wood. Maybe if Gibson lengthened the headstock to compensate for narrowing the size, it would feel better proportioned? I LOVE the cutaway 'Palm-Relief' scooped from the back of the body (where the neck joins.) It's pure GENIUS!! Every Les Paul should get this treatment! It gives way better access to those high notes!! I also liked the new Double Slug pickups! Great sensitivity! Really dynamic sound! The body weight felt heavier than I expected. This seemed almost as heavy as a standard Les Paul, and I was really hoping it would be lighter based on its specs.

      Super light, great tone, incredibly beautiful. Super smooth neck, very playable. Haven't pick up anything else since I purchased it.
