I bought this beautiful Les Paul styled guitar from bajaao in 2013 and since then this guitar has been getting compliments from legit professional musicians for its tone. Never told anybody that it costs this less LOL, as its tone beats some of those expensive 'above 40k range' guitars like Epiphone or PRS. Trust me, the pickups on this baby are Flawlessly Pristine. Not only is this guitar mesmerizingly beautiful, but it also gives a Very Serious bang for the buck. It is a Beast on the stage and in the studio.
