Before you stroll into Sam Ash with that alimony check to buy a 1972 Les Paul, maybe you should consider this $3000 technological masterpiece. The Performer from TransPerformance features built-in one-touch tuning. Twelve buttons on the body of the guitar allow you to instantly tune your guitar. A built-in LCD will let you know which tuning youâ€™re using at all times and allows for easy playing.
I think if I had $3000 to spend on a guitar, I’d still go for the Les Paul. Even though I’ve now kindasorta got one. Which reminds me, a review of the Epiphone Les Paul Special II will be coming at some point during the festive break.
