As a backup , I bought this from a guy this weekend . I plan to use it tuned to open G for some if the songs in the set list , I figured why not get a less expensive Les Paul to accomplish that goal. I currently use a Gibson R7 Goldtop as my main guitar , but have been planning on a backup for a while, so when the opportunity arose , I jumped it. He told me that he replaced the harness with a Gibson harness and Gibson volume/tone knobs . It plays great and has no issues electronically like grounding issues nor does it have string choke out issues at the high frets . This is pretty much a great guitar but I know nothing about it. Can you identify this guitar . He needed the money in an emergency and I was looking for a backup so I purchased it from him to help him out . it is a knockoff so don't bust my balls about it ,just identify it please .
