ABSOLUTLY INCREDIBLE!!! Gibson hit a massive home run with this guitar! After reading all the reviews and watching video's about this guitar, I see why everyone gives it a 5 star rating now that I have one of my own. I didn't have to do a single adjustment of any kind on this guitar when it arrived. I first looked over the entire guitar when I received it and there are no scratches, ding's, or dents. The binding is flawless around the main body. The guitar has an amazing burst on the front. The string height and neck is set perfectly. The action on the neck is very fast and smooth. No fret buzz or dead notes. The warm thick tones of the humbuckers are killer. When I plugged it in I played on the clear channel first and the tones blew me away (crisp warm tones). I then clicked on distortion and the guitar light up with an incredibly smooth powerful distortion punch. Gibson's have a great tone for every kind of music which is why I only play Gibson's on stage and in practice. The case it came in is top notch. It has a thick padded lining around the inside of the case for great protection. Many THANKS to my Sam Ash Sales Specialist, Steve Segal, for helping me with this sale and for answering all my questions! Bottom line: I would buy this guitar again and again and if you buy one, you won't be disappointed!!! Well worth the money! ROCK ON!!!
