The color is flirting with stomach issues but it is a Gibson and a US one at that. Never owned a Gibson before, but the color?

IDK - It's like a Honda Civic with a Mercedes emblem on the front.

Maybe, if it came with sandpaper and a can of lacquer.

A Gibson Les Paul, finished in Pepto Bismol... a Lespo Bispaul?? That shit has GOTTA go.

+1.

(Well, LBB isnt REALLY responsible, but I'd prefer blaming someone other than myself).

I cant call it a guitar. It RESEMBLES a guitar, but no guitar should EVER be subjected to a color like that.

Hmmm...I wonder how people will react to the color of the guitar I'm getting? It's arguably pretty pukey looking.

I admit I've always wanted a pink guitar - and that does look like a steal. You don't run across a lot of Gibsons with poplar bodies and maple necks.

I need a new guitar like I need a hole in my wallet, lol. Looks like one of those Stupid Deals of the Day that I'll lust after until about lunch time then forget about, lol.

Just as well, the deal is gone.

I got my Jazzmaster from one of their sales. The p90 sounded great, but I hated everything else about that guitar.

Aside from that, cheap melody maker.
Interesting comments about the quality on this Gibson. The guitar looks very similar to the Epiphone Les Paul Special II. The Epi cost a bit less, and I haven't heard much about poor quality on them, given their sub-$200 price. My Epiphone LP Special II is a great player, with great sound. As for the pink color, I'll bet Maaco could paint it for cheap.

Based only on what I've read and heard- Epi produces a better product than Gibson, particularly on their LPs. The headstock angle isn't as severe, and that by itself cures a lot of tuning problems.
