A place to post your impressions of MIJ Les Paul brands and/or luthier built Les Paul replicas you have owned. The more posts we get, the more new buyers will be able to see patterns, weed out personal biases and fact from fiction. Posts can be anything from your impressions of strengths and weaknesses of a brand to audio links of plugged and/or unplugged demos. If demo is amplified, please state Les Paul model + pickups + amp model + settings where possible. We would like to keep this thread informative, entertaining, and free of brand nazi-ism, so please take objections, dissagreements, negative comments or dissent to private messages, and please do NOT post them this thread. If your brand isn't made in Japan or luthier built, kindly start your own dedicated thread. Please don't speculate on brands you haven't spent considerable time with. Thanks ESP Edwards Les Pauls are considered "made in Japan" for the purposes of this thread.
