This was my first Les Paul and I really love it. I have always been a Fender guy and really wanted a LP but didn't have the money for a Gibson. From everything I have felt and heard, this guitar does not disappoint and definitely has the quality you would expect from playing a LP. And Sam Ash was there to make the purchase as easy as possible. I couldn't be happier with the entire ordeal from the phone conversation with Adam at Sam Ash to playing my new guitar. Thanks for everything!
