General Comments:
A really sweet guitar. Great for hard rock, metal, high gain classic rock. OK for blues. Fast neck, nice finish. I'm glad I bought this over an Epi L.P. You can't beat the price. As good as any Gibson or Epi IMHO.

What do you especially like about this product?
I love the finish. The pics do not do it justice. Every pic i've seen made it look flat, when it is actually highly glossy! The neck feels so good. Mahogany body and neck (set) sustain forever.

What do you dislike about this product?
I HATE THE EMG-HZ PUPS!!!!! They are really muddy, especially the neck pup! What did EMG do??????I put the Zakk pack in mine an '81 in the bridge and an '85 in the neck. OMG it rocks so hard now!!!! Doing that boosts the rating to a 5. If you buy this guitar, do the swap you will be so pleased!

General Comments:
Above quality construction for a korean import (read: samick made). They cheaped out on the EMH-HZ's.

What do you especially like about this product?
Awesome neck/fretboard, plays better than just about ANY Les Paul i've owned or have played or other peoples. Light enough it won;t kill ya on the longer gigs/set's.

What do you dislike about this product?
The stock EMG-HZ's ... they are not horrible, but they by no means compare to their EMG 81/85 counterparts. If you get this guitar, absolutely replace the pickups with a good set of EMG's or a SD.
