Overview

Epiphone has been building quality guitars since 1910 and has based this beauty on one of the most famous guitar designs of all time โ€ the Gibson Les Paul. This guitar, authorized by Gibson, has been painstakingly built 100% to their specs. The mahogany neck, mahogany and alder body, and chrome hardware contribute to the incredibly sweet, signature Les Paul tone. It features a 24-3/4"-scale set neck, 2 open-coil humbucker pickups with a volume and tone control for each, and a 1.68" nut. The fast action, nice sustain, and awesome tone make this highly playable guitar great for any type of music from punk to bluegrass. What really makes this guitar stand out however, is the flawless finish and arched, quilted maple carved top. The rosewood fretboard, with trapezoid inlays and body and neck binding, tops off this charmer. No other guitar sounds like the famous Les Paul.

I just got this guitar on august 21, 2007 and let me tell you, at first you will feel like your breaking your wallet if your a teenager like me... but then ITS ALL WORTH IT! This is an excellent guitar. The only thing is I'm going to change the strings... but that's it. AMAZING! I got the transparent red and I think this is the prettyist one of all... BUY IT B4 THERE ALL GONE!

i tried this out at guitar center looking for somehting to get for my birthday, yesterday i tried this out, and i wasn't very happy with the tone i got, the vintage mahogany gibson les paul sounds much better, and the tone knob on the one at GC wasn't put on right. If you can't afford the $800 gibson vintage mahogany, then get the epi les paul jr., the tone is much better than this and ive had it for a long time and is much better and 1/4 the price. overall, dont buy it, the tone is bad compared to some others ive tried.

Superb

By Danny

from Texas

The guitar came in and just like Christmas, I ripped into it like a new toy. The finish is amazing, the sound is GREAT for a halfway guitar. Included strings were a bit twangy, which is to be expected. Get a pick and start playing!

Greatest Guitar under 1,000

By John

from Memphis

I've had this guitar for around three months now, and it has never failed me. I bought it used and about two weeks ago the amp pickup fell out and once in a blue moon the fourth string buzzes. That is probably the result of buying a used guitar. I you can I would definately buy this guitar because it is amazing and amazingly underpriced.

Great Guitar

By BC

from Atlanta

I have to say originaly I was just going to get a plain top about $100 cheaper but after seeing this in the store I jsut couldnt look at a black plain top any more. I got mine in red and the pictures here just dont do it justice. It looks a bit washed out in the pics compared to real life. The action is a bit low and buzzes just a little around the 10th and 11th fret but thats an easy fix with the Tune-o-matic. really dont think ill regreret buying this unless they drop the price or mine just falls apart sponaniously.

Great Guitar, but pics are decieving.

By Milrtym75

from Lockport, Il.

I purchased this guitar and I love it. I have not played for a real long time, but I have played other people's electrics. The sound is great, and it is easily played for even beginners than most other guitars. The only beef I have is the finish, mine is Wine Red, is much, much darker than the pics on-line. It is nice looking, but you can't really see the quilting pattern. Other than that a great guitar.

Nice Guitar

By Guitar4me14

from Perry Utah

This beautiful baby makes the women weep. Its a great sounding guitars with only a few short coming. The tone isn't incredible but i think its because of the strings try replacing them with Gibson strings. The sustain is amazing. You'll enjoy it.

killer paul

By epilpman

from dallas, texas

i bought one of the amber transparent models at the memorial day sale. i would put this guitar up against any non-custom shop gibson. my guitar set-up man was totally impressed with it. the finish is awesome and the sound is thick and warm. it played like a dream out of the box, but plays like melted butter after a professional set-up. i have another epi lp that i traded out the stock bridge pick-up for a seymor duncan screamin demon. but this quilt top sounds just great with the stock pick-ups, just what you want--thick, warm and lots of sustain. bottom line----get one before they are gone.

Hot guitar for 500 bucks...

By Anonymous

from Michigan

This guitar has looks that kill and sound that can cause ones' ears to bleed/blow off entirely. For dropping what's half the price of the Gibson version, you get sustain, style and tone that is matched only the the previously mentioned brand. This guitar will last you quite a while, and once you get used to it, you learn how to master this work of art and use it at its' maximum of preformance. Whatever style of music you play, rock, blues, metal or punk, this guitar's got somthing everyone can love.
