Amazing!

05.02.2017
With its pleasingly chunky neck profile, the Deluxe is the very comfortable to play and sound amazing despite of the mini-buckers. The new brass nut allows for great playability and is now adjustable meaning that tweaking your action can be done with just a slight turn of an allen key (included). Talking about the sound that comes out of this beauty, the neck pickup, especially on a clean channel has an amazing warmth and clarity that, when a little tone is rolled off, renders it great for jazz. The bridge pickup is bright, without sounding harsh and sounds great through a slightly overdriven valve amp. Both pickups are very responsive and the tone knob has an incredible sweep meaning that there really is a massive range of sounds that you can get out of this guitar. It worth every penny! Great guitar!

Beautiful luxury change

fishfingers, 23.04.2017
[Note: My rating stars are based on the proportion of the expected performance (thus also expected) of the service provided.

There is a 50PS-Kombi so synonymous no bad note wg. "Low-pull engine" or "would have found more beautiful!" , For that was known beforehand. And compare the product in this pseudo-measurable with others ... well ... on what basis? ... Humbug mMn]

In principle, one should consider with the Deluxe 2015, as one to the corresponding changes of 2015 (G-Force, wide neck, Zero-Fret, optical Schmankerl like Krakelschrift and hologram etc. etc.).
I personally drive totally on most of it.
Although it is probably in the direction of blasphemy and I am relatively alone with it: I prefer this vintage even in some aspects compared to the 2016er and 2017er Gibsons (which is however also the last very very cheaply reduced prices of the 2015er is owed).

Compared to Classic, Traditional and Standard,

* Sound: The mini humbuckers sound "brighter" than the 57s and 59s; Always difficult to describe that.
I find the sound for some things pointed, but not for all directions. I think they may be less "versatile" than normal HBs 490 / BB / 57 and do not sound absolutely classic after Les Paul.

... but can also be nonsense ...

Anyway, since I have the pickups already mentioned in other guitars - as well as P90s- I still wanted one with MiniHB; Were thus a clear purchasing argument and for me in this light no disappointment. (They do not sound dull / muddy anyway.)

The Boost I almost never use (just like at the Classic), mostly I forget, because I am not necessarily the soloist, but is quite nice when necessary to a small jam.

Coil splitting is also suitable.

* Optics / haptics: The grain of the ceiling is, hmmmm, according to the classification by Gibson correct (C).
My HCS has a very striking line in the wood, which shares the top slightly diagonal in the ratio 1: 2 - apart from that it could be a bit boring. I do not like it bad, because it looks natural, but does not tear me from the stool.
The blankets of the Trad and Std are just a different league from the Pop! -factor and aesthetic easy-digestibility.

The dashboard (the size of the mini humbucker) unfortunately does not have the new clip holder and comes naturally, including a correspondingly perforated guitar body (lacquer). Comprehensible, but a pity.

The optics with 3x Poti and 1x Switch (like Classic) may start at the beginning perhaps questionable, but hey: bit of change does not hurt, right? And 1x Master-Tone also has brain strain :-)

Fingerboard very clean processed, good uniform color, also darker than expected.

Neck is worthwhile once taken into the hand. Who likes thick necks (Trad.), Likes probably also. Try out (effect profile + thickness + additional width).

* Price: The Deluxe was / is one of the (low-) priceest of the 2015 models and even now can still be found brand new at good prices. In my estimation, it is the upper most (normal) segment at Gibson the most unpopular version of a Les Paul. Good for us.

Conclusion: I play them very much and do not regret the purchase at all. Full grain Gibson with MiniHB boost sprinkles.
If I had to choose freely among the 2015 models for a single guitar, it would not be the deluxe.
If I had to decide in the light of price and availability today, it would definitely be a candidate (though just behind the Classic).

Helps surely no further, thanks for the read, nice Sunday.
