Realistic review
Holymoly , 23.03.2019
First off I am going to base this review in light of its cost. I have been looking for a reasonably priced LP clone for a while now. 40 years ago I had a second hand Antoria clone and loved it. Thomann received my order on a Wednesday promising a 3 working day delivery. UPS knocked on my door the next Monday so a point to Thomann straight away. The delivery box had a fair bit of damage to it due mainly to the fact that the cardboard was quite flimsy with little internal bracing on the corners. The guitar box however had been protected by the bubble wrap around it. The guitar was delivered undamaged. First impressions. There were no dead spots on the fingerboard and the fret edges were well finished. The frets weren?t the most jumbo I?ve seen on a Les Paul type guitar. They seemed similar to my Telecaster. Intonation seemed spot on. The tuners held the strings well although feel a bit plasticky and will be upgraded at some point. The body was three pieces of mahogany and the finish was smooth although there was some evidence of uneven staining in the cutaway. I can?t get excited by this though for the price paid. Call it early relicking. The pots ran smoothly and the coil taps worked. Finally the negatives. The neck pickup plays fairly muddy and needs overdriven to get any clarity however again this is an area that frequently gets upgraded. The last thing is just irritating. When you tilt the guitar you can here something small rattling in the internal routing channels. I?d say it is a small piece of solder and will remove the back covers to try and remove it. In summary this is a fantastic guitar for the money the neck is fast and shallow. I?d certainly recommend this guitar and for the price it?s a no brainer.

BIG BANG FOR BUCK - AGAIN!!!
azrabella, 01.07.2018
This review is from a Left handed player .
Another little GEM. Why would you pay a grand for the big G, when this guitar is right up there. OK, so the materials might not be quite as top-notch, but the sound is.
The addition of coil splitting on both pickups is a surprise. The tonal variations open up this guitar to playing styles not traditional to "Les Paul" guitars. Actually it can go from a Garry Moore sound to a passable "Country twang" very close to a Telecaster.
Can't really fault this model but for one exception - the colour. I just wish the LD designation was dropped simply because asu,ing LD stands for Lemon Drop - it 'aint. Much nearer to amber. I wish they would offer more traditional colour variations such as Sunburst or Tobacco Burst. Whilst it is a good example of what left-handed guitarists are looking for, it could be improved cosmetically with more choice of colour. All in all though - highly recommended.
