I just rec'd this guitar today. After UPS delivered it, I let it sit in the unopened case for about eight hours, another couple of hours in the open case. It's cold here! After it warmed up to room temp, I finally let myself pick it up and look it over. The finish is superb! The Old Glory paint...no feelable edges, the binding on the neck...no fret ends to feel...a beautiful piece of workmanship. I tuned it, played it unplugged for an hour or so, started lowering the bridge, got the action so low with no buzzing or fretting out the entire length of the neck. Intonation is right on from the factory. To be honest, I played it about two hours, and still have not plugged it into an amp! I played the Dickey Betts middle solo of "Ramblin' Man", and felt like I was born with this guitar in my hands. The natural sound is so pure, I'm sure that tomorrow when I plug it into an amp, I'll be thrilled. The pickups are a great part of a guitar, but if it doesn't sound good unplugged in a quiet room, it's not the best. This so far, is the best. I am a true Patriot, and play a lot of Veterans' affairs. This guitar will look good. It will get a lot of attention, but most of all, I am confident it will sound great! The only change I would ever have made would be to have the frets slightly more on the "jumbo" side for more of the '59 feel, but as it is now, it plays smoother than my ten year old standard, and that is saying a lot. I know this is limited production, and I wish I knew how many were actually made. This is a real gem. And I am saying this just from playing it acoustically. I KNOW what the burstbuckers will do! I gave it a "4" on value because I do feel it is overpriced, but so are all Gibson Les Pauls, IMO. The limited production may make it a better investment in the long run, but I wanted it to play, not to make money on it. It is basically an LP std, '60s neck, burstbuckers, with a very well-done custom finish, if Stars and Stripes are your taste. If not, buy a regular '60s neck std., and save some money. But, I can already say I do not regret the extra money. It's all in your personal taste, and the quality of the individual instrument. This one has met and exceeded mine.
