    "Do not look further ... you have found it!"

    Since it has the Classic 57' pups and a real solid body - probably you can guess it. Best of breed! If you go for the well known Gibson Les Paul traditional Standard tone - then take it. Put it through a Marshall tube amp and that is it, you are at home! With this set up I would not say it is a metal axe, but not hopeless. Otherwise can handle anything on the highest level.
    It is a Gibson. You can decorate a Christmas tree with the stuff comes with it.
    Ease of Use:
    If you have a normally decent amp and cannot get anything out of this guitar sound-, or tonewise, either you did not turn something on, or probably you are not even on basic level as a guitarist. The guitar reacts well on different settings and very versatile. It has top playability - although anything can be fine tuned more ... according to individual requirements.
    What I tried was on top guality level - as for electric guitars. On the other hand, since you're gonna get rid of more than two grands by getting this puppy - it is essential to be like this! This is a Les Paul Solid body, so, probably one can break the neck of the body by putting effort into it. Otherwise, it is a workhorse. You cannot kill it by playing it! I saw LPs playing with no paint on them - kinda road worn - after decades of heavy duty sometimes, providing the same beautiful, "to die for sound". This is not any different from them, I think.
    Manufacturer Support:
    You cannot know it in advance. May be it will work perfectly, may be not. Just like their website ...
    The Wow Factor:
    Well, I love the LP Traditional, no problem. It is more than technical, or pro ... it is personal, too. The Traditional is the flagship of the Les Pauls for me, what carries the LP traditions further. I consider the new Standard as dead since it has no any LP solid body feature left anymore except its shape. No hard feelings, but according to me the Traditional sets the standard for the elctric guitars from now on!
    If you get it - you will not search for anything else anymore. You are settled. If I would look for an additional guitar it would be an acoustic, or an archtop to complete and expand the range of tone variety. But I would not look for another Les Paul. This is the best one!
