Comments about Gibson Les Paul Special Plus 2016 Limited Run Electric Guitar:

I haven't yet played it, but for the electronics, less weight, contour body & being a special edition, I made up my mind, ran the risk even tough no one has made a review. I did't have a Gibson Les Paul, besides I got it with a price tag reduced plus an additional discount 'cause of president's day
