Sound Quality
The sound is what to be expected from a Les Paul, real good! Almost surprising, Switch and pickups work great from Lead to ryhthm, a nice distortion sound with my Danelectro Fab pedal. No unwanted electronic feedback at all through my Crate 60watt amp. A variety of sound is possible, clean to dirty to loud and mellow...
Reliability/Durability
The finish seems to be heavy, so I'm sure it would last, like anything I have owned, TLC is the key to longevity...I think live wouldn't be an issue, but would always have a backup.
Price/Value
General Comments
I've been playing guitar for approx. 20 years off and on and owned 3 other electric guitars in the past 2 Lp copies and a Strat. All where a joy to play except 1 of them, the LP copy, it didn't have a name of manufacture or it was removed, it was tampered with and abused. This time for $150 I have no complaints, extremely good value. I would have paid $200 if I knew its feel and sound properties. In the past, some of the Les Paul copies that I have tried out and owned were not balanced and didn't really saddle nicely, this one does... and set necks do make a difference. Would like to try a Ibanez next time around....
