    NOW $1150 ALL IN!!!

    Is this a poor man's Axcess or are you rich b/c of the money you saved? IDK, but I do know you are the smart one!

    In most cases you get what you pay for. I challenge you to prove me wrong here though. A Les Paul Axcess will run you an arm and a leg. What are you paying for? You are paying for "Gibson" on the Headstock. A quick search on the used sites and the least expensive Axcess I see is $3299! Buy this, It's a better guitar for about a third of the price!

    Don't trust my word, I am trying to sell this.. See what the Gibson guru's say... Read the entire post and replies from My Les Paul (Keep in mind, I am offering a CS4 not a CS3 which is all hog)

    Stainless steel MJ frets
    Thick maple cap (Plain Top)
    Premium Mahogany body and neck D shape Slim (think 60s Slim for comparison)
    Natural Binding
    Heritage Burst
    Satin back of neck -plays like silk -No sticky gibson goo neck!
    Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates Pickups
    Pull up on tone splits each pickup individually
    Locking Sperzels
    Comes Original Carvin Hard Case G&G Tweed Case
    8.25lbs

    I have owned 2 Axcess one was a CS Alex Lifeson, they were nice guitars but at over 4K??? With the money you save buying this you would have enough to buy two more!

    No Trades please

    The mans not lying . I played an axcess for 8 years . Then I got one of these and ditched the axcess .
    If it had a floyd I would buy it

    FYI, this is a CS, but other than that, you’re spot on (see my avatar guitar). These are fantastic, playability is amazing. Good luck!

    How is this a poor man’s Axcess when there’s no Floyd Rose? Got all excited for nothing.

    Good point! I for one, am not a huge fan of the Lifeson and Schon Les Paul's specifically because of the Floyd. I also think this is a better made guitar. No slap, slam, slop -crappy fretwork and sloppy binding bleed but some people like that too.

    For what I am asking you can add a floyd and still come out way ahead! Heck you can put on a Stetsbar trem for $220 -no drilling and they work perfect
