    I said I didn't need another Les Paul but my local Guitar Center had one of these so I had to go over and check it out. I was thinking I might trade my Les Paul Custom Lite, but they offered a pretty good price without the trade so I bought it. Didn't hurt that they had a sweet brand new Fender Super Reverb to demo it on. Has the Burstbucker 61R and 61T pickups - not sure how they differ from the Burstbucker Pros that are in my Standard, but they sound a little hotter, and a little dirtier although they clean up nicely at lower volumes. Also the "out of phase" push pull seems to be a little more distinct sounding than my Standard, maybe because the pickup are uncovered? The neck is a nice slim 60s style, although flatter than the asymmetrical fingerboard on my Standard. The finish looks like a plain top, and the photos don't show it very well, but there is some figure in there. I like the reflector knobs which seem a little taller and easier to grab onto than regular top hats, nut does not bind and the set up is overall very good. I will go over it in a day or two and set to my liking, but for now just having fun playing it. Has 9 hole weight relief, so comes in at 8.5 pounds, about a pound heavier than my Standard with "ultra-modern weight relief", but not too heavy. I don't play those 9:00 PM to 1:00 or 2:00 AM bar gigs anymore so hopefully I can tote it as long as needed.
