for anyone wondering this guitar is insane for the price. i own my share of expensive guitars but i also enjoy finding cheap guitars that can hold their own. i picked this guitar up at my local g.c. just to play around on and was impressed with its action so i plugged it in and was i surprised. so i decided to buy it and when i got home i hooked it up to my metal zone and nothing but insane sounds followed. wonderful clean tones and distortion has a nice fat crunch to it. if your looking for something fun to add to your lineup this is it.

This guitar doesn't stay in tune, the input jack needs to be replace about two-three weeks after having it, the paint chips easily and makes your hands stick to the neck which slows you down when playing this guitar, the pickups are some of the worst I've ever seen on a guitar for it being a BRAND NEW guitar, and the bridge is not aligned correctly with the rest of the guitar so anything past about the 7th or ninth fret hardly ever comes out the way it should sound. The tension was completely off as well on this guitar with the E, the D, and the G strings hitting the 1st fret which will constantly give you that bad sound from it constantly vibrating off of it. This was also due to the fact the the bridge wasn't properly aligned as well!! And this is the way it came Brand New and I never made any adjustments to it or anything because I took it back and got my money back. This guitar made my little nephew's First Act guitar sound like as if it were a Gibson SG just because of how poorly made this guitar was. I Do NOT recommend this Guitar to anyone, Beginners, experience players, or even anyone who is on a tight budget for that matter. Just Buy something else that is a name brand and make sure you check to see where it was made!!!!

        Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Junior Special Electric Guitar:

        I picked up the Epiphone Les Paul Jr. Limited in early September after playing around with it in Guitar Center in Times Square. I went in during a break between shows, and I immediately loved the feel and the sound of this guitar. The action is fast and the sound has a deep, rich tonal quality for a variety of styles. I own a Fender Strat from 1996, which I love, but, the tone isn't as deep as the Epiphone for a true rock sound. I was looking for an inexpensive guitar, not for playing professionally, which I don't, but, more just for my own pleasure and to try different sounds on. I plug this into a Fender Champion amp, which gives the right wattage as an apartment dweller in NYC. The body can be a bit heavy, because it's very solid. But, overall, if you're looking for an inexpensive guitar to get started and just find different sounds on, and want to learn to move your fingers quickly on the fretboard, this is the perfect guitar for that. I would say that it would probably be a great guitar for pros as the sound is amazingly beautiful. So, I highly recommend this as an inexpensive alternative, which plays, feels and sounds like a far more expensive guitar. Epiphone outdid themselves with the production of this instrument.

        Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Junior Special Electric Guitar:

        I purchased this guitar in the " ebony " finish for a mod project.
        I was quite surprised by the quality when it arrived much better than I expected.
        The action and intonation was spot on right out of the box, the Finnish is flawless and the frets are smooth and level.
        The pickup was also quiet good but it is best for high gain and crunch tones though, as it' tends to get kind of twangy with a clean channel.
        The only bad part about it is the tuning machines. They're okay but you should think about upgrading, which is okay for me as I bought for a mod project.

              Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Junior Special Electric Guitar:

              This is a fantastic sounding guitar that has beautiful playability. The neck is built so that it allows quick playing, whether strumming or picking. The tone is rich and sharp, and has no dullness to it. It's a simple guitar, which is great for those who enjoy just the guitar sound without all the bells and whistles. I bought this as a fun alternative to my Fender Strat. It's a bit on the heavier side, in comparison to my Fender Strat, but a beautiful instrument all the same. I would recommend this guitar for anyone beginning to play, who is searching for an affordable, yet high quality instrument to learn on. This is not to say that veteran players also won't enjoy the deep, rich sound this guitar has. Highly recommended.

              Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Junior Special Electric Guitar:

              I had gotten a Epiphone Les Paul Junior over the July 4th Weekend and I was very surprised as my result. I was looking for a Les Paul Standard but felt it was too heavy, so I found a LP JR and immediately it clicked with me. I play in a church band and it was fantastic with it's ranges. I love this thing and I would never think of putting it up for sale. BUY THIS GUITAR, you will not regret the buy.

              Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Junior Special Electric Guitar:

              The value of this guitar is amazing. All I had to do was change the strings and lower the action. The intonation was already great. I also have a 1975 Gibson LP Deluxe that I got new in '75, and while the action isn't quite as low on the Junior, it is still very playable. I'm sure that with a little fret dressing and adjustment I could get it lower, but I'm very happy with the playability as is. While it can't be compared to the LP Deluxe as far as tone is concerned, it has a great voice of it's own. I've had this guitar for about a month now, and have no complaints. This is a very high quality guitar, it has a beautiful finish, and is pleasantly on the heavy side. I would definitely recommend this guitar to beginners and pro's alike. Great Guitar!

              Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Junior Special Electric Guitar:

              I purchased one of these to be a back up to my Epiphone LP Pro. Put .011's on it ( I tune down a whole step for one song, and capo as a back up), but it's my favourite guitar now. Simple, set it up myself (I'm no tech) but it's simple construction makes it easy. I've been playing 40 years. I'm in a tribute band, and this is now my main guitar. $100. That's it. My band loves it, it's light, and I'm going to pick up a couple more, just to mess with. Don't think I'll be using the Pro too much any more. Buy one. Just do it.

              Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Junior Special Electric Guitar:

              Wow. I have to say that I'm extremely impressed with this guitar. It really kicks some serious butt. I have been playing for 47 years, and have always been a solid Fender guy. I was in my Phoenix store on Friday (7/3/15)just looking around and saw this beautiful PLP Jr, (Dark, rich blue)and decided to give it a listen. I was hooked! It took all of 10 min. of playing it before I knew I had to have it. The single humbucker is killer. The tone from this guitar matches or exceeds that of many of my more expensive guitars. While it may be designed for beginners, in my personal opinion, it's far better than any "beginner" guitar I have ever played. I simply have nothing bad to say about it, except GO GET ONE!
