Like just about everyone who shells out good money for a nice, American made guitar I'm not thrilled with the fact that this guitar ships with a gig bag. I purchased a similarly priced Gibson SG bass a few years ago, and it came with a nice hard shell case. That said, it's the best gig bag I've ever seen. Plus there are lots of reasonably priced after market LP hard cases.
Gibson has done an amazing job with weight reduction on this - and some other - Les Paul models without sacrificing tone or sustain. Technically, it's now a semi-hollow guitar. Some LP lovers are never going to be happy with that, but I love it. I can enthusiastically recommend this guitar. Looks great, feels great, sounds great.
Obviously the quality of an American-made Gibson can't be denied, but this still outdid my expectations. I'm sure if I were to venture up into the $2k, 3k, 4k range, it would sound even better, but for the price I paid, this thing sounds amazing. As per my review title, it sounds like butter. Incredible sound.
The key is the '57 pickups. I went with the Tribute HP model (as opposed to the Tribute T model) and the '57 pickups are really a nice upgrade. I've been living on the rhythm pickup setting, as it has a tone like no guitar I've ever owned. It also has an adjustable nut, though I haven't had to adjust it yet because the guitar came pretty well set up. I will be doing a more detailed setup this weekend, but it came out of the box ready to rock.
Another addition when you go with the HP over the T is the G Force Tuners. Honestly I wasn't sure how I would like that, as I read many mixed reviews. So far, I think it's pretty cool. The guitar tunes itself. Check out youtube or something if you want to see more. I figured it wasn't a huge deal because I could always swap it out for more traditional tuning machines if I didn't like it. Jury is still out, but so far so good.
There is also a detachable pick guard, which makes it very easy to snap on and snap off. No screws involved, which I appreciate because I don't like holes in my guitar body! Can't see myself switching it out very often, but I do like that it can swap in and out easily. I'm sure this question will come up, so I will just say now I don't find it to be the case that the pick guard falls out easily. It snaps in VERY tightly and doesn't move at all.
The gig bag that comes with it is actually pretty underrated in my opinion. I like it. It is by no means a "soft" case. The inside is lined with a velvety soft material, just like a traditional Gibson hard case, and the case itself does provide good hard protection. Don't be turned off by the idea that this only comes with a gig bag like I was at first... I am actually very impressed with the bag. It's no hard case, but as gig bags go I give it top marks.
Photos: There are no good pictures of this guitar on the Amazon details page (everything is a stock photo, and you never know what you're getting there) so I thought I would provide my own for those curious. Excuse my bad photography if you don't like the lighting or something. I have provided a pic with the guitar in the case before I even removed it so you can see the inside of the case. There is also a pic of the guitar on a stand under normal soft yellow lighting conditions (that room is a bit dark). Lastly, the picture of the guitar on the couch HAS BEEN altered on purpose. I turned the contrast all the way up in the photo so you could see the colors truly pop. The look always depends on the lighting, and photos don't always do it justice. The couch pic simply shows the color-potential if you will.
Overall, a GREAT guitar, and I highly recommend going with the HP over the T, simply for the classic '57 pickups.
Packaged well. I did not know that it was coming from Japan, but it was delivered faster than the estimated time. Great fitting hardshell case. You can actually feel a slight vacuum effect when you remove it from the case. It goes back in the case with that same "whoomph" sound. I didn't want to play it because it's a gift. I did check out the finish, it's perfect. Quality Grover locking tuners are the best out there, so props for Gibson using them. Guitar is so light and thin. I wish I could have afforded an SG when I first started playing. I couldn't, but I can give one to my nephew and watch his jaw drop.
Gibson has taken some hits in the last few years. Quality control was spotty at best. I know this because I have played them in music stores and have passed on buying one. These are not the Gibsons from that era, these are back to the Gibsons of their glory days. I'm so impressed and happy with my purchase. It makes me want to keep this guitar and then pass it down to my nephew in a few years. I'm really going back and forth with the idea. Great guitar, great seller (who will answer your emails in a timely fashion) and a great overall experience. The guitar is just perfect. If you're on the fence about buying a new guitar from this seller, Marshmallow Juice, (great name!) I can tell you that I'm really impressed. Again it ships from Japan, so it will take a little longer to get it to you. Well worth the wait. Peace and chicken grease.
