This site and Gibson team up to do it again!!! I just got my guitar and it was everything I hoped it would be. It got here right on time and in perfect shape. A simply beautiful guitar that looks much nicer in person. The sound is outragous!!! Sounds like Ozzy frontman Zakk Wylde with that chuncky sustaining tone and lots of power. When things are turned down it cleans up and has a really nice bell like tone. Looks like it will be able to handle all sorts of music styles. The quality control was very good. I couldn't find anything that needed to be touched up. The little pivot point holder for the 9 volt battery is a great idea and makes changing the battery a fast and easy process. No screw driver needed here! Gibson bookmatched the maple top which highlights the beautiful golden grain running through it. For $**** you just can't go wrong. It's a Zakk Wylde model at less than half price!!! What more could a Rock/Metal style player possibly want other than some stage time along side your Rock God!!!! The only question left is, are you player enough to wrap your head around it and blow chunks!!!! Thanks for another great deal!!!!!!!!

This guitar looks nice but plays absolutely horribly. It would not take a setup. I had it done twice, by two different shops just to make sure and it never setup the proper way. The nut had to be filed and I only play with 10's. It never stayed in tune, and I know how to play and I know what I'm doing. I can bend the hell out of my Tele and she never goes out of tune. I got rid of this thing because I got tired of fighting with it and I just couldn't take it anymore. It was the least playable and most expensive of my 6 guitars and didn't sound any better than any of them. Don't expect grail tone out of the emg's either. As with any p/u, it all depends what's on the other end and I found the emg's average at best. Look elsewhere, you could do way better for way less.

A beautiful guitar with some serious bite!

By Guito Gambini

from Salt Lake City

This is one of the most beautiful guitars I've ever seen. The Gibson Raw Power which I recieved does not have a flamed maple top but do not be discouraged. This guitar looks 1,000 times better in real life than it does in any picture. The natural satin finish matches perfectly with the creme binding and the EMG's match the headstock as well. I especially like the fact that the neck is an un-laquered hunk of mahogany as opposed to having laquer or even worse, painted finish. This makes it soooooo comfortable and smooth to play. The neck inlay is absolutely beautiful just like the rest of the guitar. The EMG's sound great if you're looking to chop out some power chords or scales with some added distortion. They even sound OK with a clean tone as well. I especially like how they squeal so easily. If you're looking for a guitar to play soft rock, jazz or blues get something with a JB/59 pickup combo. If you want to stoke the neighbors with some loud aggressive punk or metal, look no further than tha Gibson Les Paul Standard Raw Power!

best decision I ever made

By happy customer-_VRU0

from ontario Canada

Okay, so I have been playing for 2 years now, I started with a sqire strat. Then i got this thing, it has the nicest sount I've ever heard in a guitar. I practically live at music stores, I play as many of the guiatrs as I can. I've never played anything like it, the tone is just perfect, the natural look is just the cherry on the cake. Seriously, if you are looking for that classic humbucker kick in the pants, this is definatly your guitar.

The Ultimate LP

By John2112-uftm_

from The Mississippi Delta

This is ,without a doubt, the coolest Les Paul on the market right now. I love the factory Grover keys & the factory EMG 81 & 85. Playing through my vintage 1984 Marshall 2203 head & 1960AV/BV cabs, I'm achieving the ultimate tone. Best value in tone & coolness Gibson has put out ever.

Got Wood?

By 59Fleetside

from Burbank, CA

What a unique, beautiful and useful guitar! The fit and finish on the axe are TOP-NOTCH, and the factory EMG's can't be beat. More powerful than a locomotive, and easy battery replacement. No screwdriver required! My guitar even has some birds-eye on it's all-natural, organic top. The antique white binding goes so well with the raw finish. It's just an awesome guitar. You feel like you can play with no worries! I'm certain they won't offer these for long, so don't miss out. By the way, it's not just for heavy metal, it's a killer blues and/or jazz guitar too!

Crunch for days

By Twist300-JtMA7

from Wenatchee, WA

The 9 in features is only because it doesn't have a tremelo. The guitar is worth every penny. It even sounds great out of my mdx30. I've had it for about 3 hours and I can't put it down. Stock 9V batteries because the EMG's are active.

RAW is Best!

By bly62

from Bozeman, MT

I own and play this guitar and it joins my collection of 10+ Les Paul models. I have many custom shop guitars such as the Peter Frampton and Ace and I can tell you this model is as fine of quality as any. The EMG's are incredible and the finish is much better in real life than the photos. If you want a Zakk model for 1/2 price, this is it!

1 GR8 Axe

By Tone Junkie-vcBcP

from Orlando, FL

This is a wonderful guitar...I love the natural finish with the emg's already installed. For a guitar player looking for a great axe and a great tone, this is your guitar....and for the money, it is a great value. Defnitely a must have and I own just about everything worth owning. A players guitar for sure...get it and play it until your finger's are RAW.
