    2016 left-over LP Traditional Pro III impressions...

    Hey guys,

    I saw a different LP Standard on a website for Guitar Center and went up there intending to trade an old vintage Carvin V220 for it, I fell in love with this left-over 2016 Trad-Pro III. I think the top (Heritage Cherry Burst) is killer, and I have always loved the pickguard look.

    I wasn't crazy about the zebra pickup scheme, but honestly, when I plugged it in, I just KNEW...man, this guitar SINGS, seriously, with incredible harmonic resonance and bite. I know that these push-pull pots haven't got great reviews, but you should seriously try out the versatility of the tones you can get. If the top first caught my eye, the tones stole my heart. And it has a perfect neck size--not as chunky as my 2013 '59 R9, but fast and very comfortable. I also had the tech pull the back plate off it and thankfully it doesn't have one of those weird circuit boards as some used to have.

    I got a good deal on it, and am super pumped. What a versatile instrument, and solid as a rock--no chambering in this baby.

    If you get a chance to play one of these, and you've had your doubts about the fancy electronics, I heartily recommend that you at least try one and see what you can get out of the different combos. It's pretty impressive.
