Back in May I picked up a lefty Les Paul "Future Tribute" in Wine Red. In fact I wrote one of the reviews. I basically loved everything about it except for the robot tuners. The same thing applies to this guitar too. The tuners just don't work all that great. I really want to love them too. It's a great idea and I DO like being able to easily go back and forth between tunings while practicing. This guitar was made in December of 2012 so the tuners are the older ones but the company won't upgrade them. You have to pay $95 to get the newer control module and for that price I might as well take these off and buy regular Grover tuners. Now for the good stuff; 24 frets and "Dirty Fingers" pickups. I have a Dirty Fingers bridge pickup in my old 1986 vintage Flying V and I love that sound for metal. If I had to chose though, I would have chosen a more milder pickup for the neck position for all those 80's power ballads. This guitar is more comfortable to play while just practicing than my Les Paul especially near my elbow of my pick hand. Look at any well worn Les Paul and they're always work there. Also, the color (antique sunburst) is beautiful. It's finished in a satin which makes for a very comfortable neck. Even the "witch hat" knobs are nice. They function really well and looks 70's for sure. However Gibson still doesn't put lefty pots in their guitars. Really though, at this price? Snag one up before they're gone!
