    We sat down with this guitar for some time and really enjoyed it. An obvious guitar inspired from the Gibson Les Paul but featuring advanced electronics and 24 frets. The guitars weight is somewhat less than the heavy les Paul and the necks action and feel are right on the money. The controls are easy to access and logical. The EMG pickup provide excellent warm tones while still able to put out the crunch when driven. If we had to identify a flaw or annoyance the 23rd and 24th fret are a bit difficult to reach.
