i completely agree with Phil .My Yellow version was just about perfect .I even lowered the action just a tad and still no fret buzz.its my first gibson and its a winner.I usually play Telecasters and with its bright but toneful pickups and chunky maple neck ensures I feel at home but the four pots and the short scale leads me to newer and very happy territory .The fret board is very sweet and well set up.I havnt had to do anything to improve it .I usually have to open out nut slots on any guitar I have bought but not this one .Like Phil says ,use the pots to back off any unwanted brightness.
My one is a fine well playing guitar with a low action and good sounds .It stays in tune probably because the nut is well cut .I play it more than my Gibson and gig it as well as it is very light looks good and plays well .Keiper had very iffy quality but my one is perfect apart from mild string buzz from th e cheap stop tail .My friend who is a proper luthier (he makes lutes ) went over it and pronounces it near perfect. Great if you get a good un .
.A fine little hollowbody jazzer with a floating bridge .It sounds fine for what I play on 10's and fingerstyle .My Gibson stays at home because it doesnt really have any great advantage unless I want to show off in front of label freaks .so it stays in tune ,hasnt fallen to bits and plays well with a low action and good fret board ,no high frets or sprout .Only hint of an issue is the tail piece needs a more sold piece as it rattles acoustically unplugged .I solved it with tape over the back .It doesnt show .I would hate to lose it .In fact it would be much easier if my Gibson was stolen as its easier to replace .No issues with that one either by the way
