This is a guitar for those who want that real old school Les Paul tone. This is pure PAF heaven, and it's great for that more vintage kind of sound. The main thing that this guitar has going for it, besides the finish, is the Seth Lover pickups. These are really great PAF clones that sound wonderful. The guitar has the following specs:

Mahogany body with a maple top
Mahogany set-neck with a rosewood fretboard
22 frets with Gibson-style inlays
Tune-o-matic bridge
Seymour Duncan Seth Lover in neck and bridge
Two volumes
Two tones
Three way switch

UTILIZATION

The guitar had a very nice finish on it. I believe they sprayed poly and then put lacquer over that, but I'm not entirely sure. It definitely felt more like a normal Les Paul than the other models did. The guitar had some nice flame on the maple top, and it was bookmatched pretty nice. The fretwork on this was very good, and it was probably one of the better Edwards I've tried when it came to fretwork. The guitar doesn't have binding nibs, so if that bothers you, you might want to look into getting a different guitar. I can't imagine it being that big of a deal, but some people are super picky about this stuff. The rest of the guitar was pretty much like any other Edwards.

SOUNDS

The guitar has some Seymour Duncan Seth Lover pickups in it. For those that don't know, these are some super fat and super vintage pickups. The bridge worked great for blues and even hard rock. However, once you got into the high gain territory, it started to be a problem. It seemed to fall on its face, but it's not really meant for that, so it's hard to fault it for that. The Seth Lover in the neck is probably one of the fattet and thickest pickups that Duncan makes. It can deliver a scary good PAF tone while taking no prisoners. It's a bit underpowered for my tastes, but once you start hitting that old school Marshall with a boost pedal, everything seems to make sense.

OVERALL OPINION

This is purely for those guys who want a more vintage style Les Paul guitar. Aside from the pickups, however, not much is different when compared to other guitars that Edwards makes. If you're not a fan of the Seth Lover pickups or have never played lower output, non-potted pickups before, you might want to look elsewhere, but for those of you who love that old school vintage tone, this is the guitar you want to buy.
