Finally received the Gibson yesterday and I really like it. There is one very small area on the side above the pickup selector where the finish is slightly dull. But other than that it looks great. The action is nice, the pickups sound great, and it feels great to play. I'm glad I bought it.

Even on the clean setting through my amp, there was a slight touch of distortion and sustain - which I like. I've been playing around with the coil tapping and phase & bypass. While the different combinations really change the sound, I haven't yet decided on a setting I like more than any other.

Really, I just want to get back into playing more, learn some new scales and chords, and hopefully do some more arranging and recording in Garageband.

Be sure to play with the pickup height as well. Some LPs can be really sensitive to that. I like to run them lower.

This guitar is amazing! BTW, where did you order a hard case for it?
The case came with the guitar. It's a TKL case and was made in Canada. I bought both through American Musical Supply. I was considering the Les Paul Studio at a few hundred less. But I liked the idea of having a hard shell case.

I picked up a cheap noise gate and wireless system for my home rig. Since I don't tour that's where it will get all the use. :rockon: I would love to see how loud my PRS head will get without sitting in the room. I'm just curious if I can get some extra bite and chug with a little more volume. The wife will not be pleased. :p
