Bought this after playing a number of American Gibson Les Pauls and being very disappointed at their playability and setup. There was a world of difference between the Custom shops and the standard models. Though this one did not come perfect. There are a number of little issues with these Historics, and mine had a number of them. Sloppy bridges that do not intonate well, poorly cut nut, poorly Plek'd . . .well I sent mine up to Phil Jacoby and this thing is perfect and bulletproof now, what a gigging machine. If you like big necks and LP's, take a look at these Historic 58's.
