Hello again!

Here is one of my favorite guitars to travel with. The Epiphone-Gibson Les Paul Pee Wee.

The PEE WEE has one special feature that caused me a bit of grief.

I was traveling to Virginia on business, and wanted to take a guitar along. I purchased it the day before my trip, and planned to play it that evening in my hotel room. I was so mad that it would not stay in tune!

It has a 'short-scale', meaning the neck-length is shorter than a standard 24-fret guitar, which translates to intonation issues, ie staying in tune. When I inquired through email with Epiphone technical support, they replied that the guitar needs to be tuned up 3-half steps from E to G.

Problem solved! Now I have an amazing sounding guitar, that I can carry on the plane with me, and using a laptop computer with software I can jam anywhere! It is effortless to play, has perfect action and wide fretwire.

The guitar features a single humbucking style pickup, and a single volume knob as the only control. The guitar sounds awesome when plugged in, and the short scale makes string bending like butter! I have spent hours playing this guitar, and it only improves with age.

The price I paid for it was $110.00 about 3 years ago, and it just floors me how well made and playable this little gem is. I only bought the guitar alone, not the pack as shown in the photo, I had Guitar Rig on my laptop so plenty of amps / speakers / and microphones to choose from there.

Check out the PEE WEE at your local music store. I have never regretted my purchase.

      Your review has helped me pick a 1st guitar for my boy, so thanks.

      As a written piece, I like your style. It's clear and to the point, very readable.
