Simply Stunning - I couldn't resist at this price!! I've searched high and low and I cannot find this level of guitar anywhere cheaper. Come with the controversial G Force tuners. I have seen these in action and they seem to work well. Looking forward to it turning up on Monday (stock permitting)

Great price for a quality guitar



It is,

Second hand Traditional's on Fleabay go for a couple hundred quid more than this.
Not bad, I like the look of the standard personally.

Can't argue with you there,

The reason I've gone for this model is that it doesn't have any weight relief like some of the modern Gibson Les Pauls.

Hows it working out for you? - I see they are still at this price - how did the colour turn out? - I have seen a few on ebay but the colour looks so much lighter

It was delivered yesterday and I have to say I'm over the moon with it. The colour isn't right on the internet images and is slightly darker. The pickup surrounds and pick guard are cream yet they look white on the website and eBay. The images don't do it justice it really is a stunner!!

Playability is fantastic, intonation and action are perfect all over the fretboard. Build quality is excellent and the flame of the maple top is gorgeous.

The colour is a bit 'Marmite' but I love it, the G Force tuners seem to work flawlessly and take only a couple of seconds to achieve what sounds to my ears as pretty spot on tuning.

There is a strange benefit to buying a guitar like this................ It makes you appreciate the cheaper guitars in your collection. I have an Gibson SG 70's tribute, a couple of late 80's, early 90's Greco's Les Paul's and a recent Epiphone Riviera and SG Custom. They all play fantastically well when properly setup..... but this new one is pretty special.

Ironically there has been about 4 new listings in the UK of these guitars on eBay over the last few days. All between £1200 - £1400..................

I keep hovering over the order button but I really need to try one. I think this has the 50's neck. I am in no way a good player but love guitars and the attraction at this price is that it will hold its value. I mostly play a Mexican fender strat which is a similar colour and my worry is how I will get on moving to the thicker neck as I have a dean acoustic and I struggle a bit with the neck. I have 5 cheaper guitars and have promised myself that if I get another it must be decent. I really like the desert studio 2015 but they are mostly sold out now or at full price. I am glad you are pleased with it. I need to have a few beers one night and then just hit the button

That's why I bought one......... at £899 you can move it on and probably make money when this sale is over. This is a quality instrument and whilst the neck is the thicker type it's still plays perfectly and is super smooth. I have never had a guitar that has been this well setup straight out of the box.
Just negotiating with them at present and trying to get a photo of the top - hoping to order in the morning!
Just put my order through no photo ahead of postage but at least I can return it if I am not happy
Well mine just arrived at work. One of the knobs is loose and it's more green than blue but I like it and should match the curtains :). Just waiting for the wife to pick me up from the pub and then I can go home and have a play :). Hopefully I can fix the knob issue
