*Similar review as MF, bought same colour there** Received guitar in good order. Opened large box to find well packed Epiphone box with said guitar inside. Opened Epiphone box to find Worn Cherry Les Paul P90 Special well packed inside with no damage or issue. Very impressed how this is sent from Guitar Center. MF seems to come direct from Epiphone. After unpacking, I was pleasantly surprised to find a very nice looking guitar that is beyond out of tune. Wasn't expecting it to be, strummed a few chords and had a good laugh. Couldn't help but notice not one sharp fret all the way up the fretboard, another pleasant surprise.
Tuned guitar up and played a few more chords up and down the fretboard. All sounded great and in tune. Can't believe the intonation being this good out of the box. Switch is solid and pots are firm to turn, not lose or lacking resistance. Finish is satin and does show life's finger marks which is fine, polished right off. Strings feel dry/tacky from likely a film to protect during shipping. Could wipe off but plan to restring immediately anyway. Epiphone neck plate was installed correct this time. Neck screws are thinner than I would like but are satisfactory. The big surprise comes from taking of the pot plate to find a shielded cover and 500k Alpha pots which would explain why they had some substance when dialled in. Very susprised and impressed. Thanks Epiphone, I won't be upgrading anything on this guitar!!
Now that it's restrung with Rotosound Pinks (best strings on earth) and fretboard lemon oiled, this guitar absolutely sings!! I am astounded by what I've pays and what I have. Plays and sounds fabulous. I am really pleased with this guitar. These P90's have the best in high and low bite through my Peavey Stereo Chorus 2x12. I play clean, this is the amp for it and now I have the guitar for it. Unbelievable for the money. Highly recommend getting one!!!!!

I bought this guitar to try out P90 pickups. I use this guitar to practice and as a back up guitar. The guitar sounds great. The finish is good and the electronics are solid. The only issue I had was the fingerboard has a layer of wax on it, cause my fingers to stick. The frets were also rough. I solved this by cleaning up the fingerboard and polishing the frets and I've never that the problem again. This guitar cannot hold its tuning so I ended up changing the tuners and nut. Through this guitar I feel in love with the P90 tone and I will eventually guy a higher end guitar with P90s.

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Special I P90 Electric Guitar:

    I've been playing for 24 years, and this is an amazing guitar. I got the yellow one and a Fender Mustang with it. Sounds great playing roots music, rockabilly, jump blues etc. Also sounds great playing classic rock and 90's rock. Great tone from the P-90's stays in tune and intonates great. Love this thing.

      Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Special I P90 Electric Guitar:

      I bought this guitar to have something fairly decent with P90s. The sound is great with a wide range of tones. It's lightweight & nice looking with a beautiful rosewood fret board. The workmanship is top-notch. The tuners are pretty cheap and the nut looks like it's plastic. I'll probably change the tuners at least. The factory must ship these things as fast as they can because it smelled like linseed oil for a few days and there was some kind of sticky stuff on the fret board. The string height was too high but I got it down where I like it with no fret buzz. As for playability, it's not an American Les Paul but will do nicely for rhythm and slow lead parts. You're not going to find a nicer guitar for the money.

      Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Special I P90 Electric Guitar:

      Bought my first one 15 years ago. Wasn't afraid to make changes, learn how to make adjustments and learn proper set up techniques. Did things I'd never do to an expensive guitar. One became a test mule, another becomes an alternate tuner, another becomes my "go to" guitar. Why? Because they're inexpensive, uncomplicated, good sounding, lightweight and fun little guitars. Just like their original Gibson cousins. They're a blast!

          My right finger is all red from bar chords caused by the sharp edges on the frets. I was going to file, but decided to bring the guitar back.

          Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Special I P90 Electric Guitar:

          I bought this for a friend who's a beginner on guitar, but now I want one too. I've been playin for years, owned numerous Gibson, Fender, and PRS... and this is a great little guitar, for not much money. Out of the box it played well, but 1 star off for using bad strings, they felt sticky? Took it to my guitar tech for new strings and a setup. Sounds killer! No fret buzz or dead spots. A little hum at higher gain settings but hey it's got P90s, which I love. Good for the basic rock to blues thing, probably not for metal. Get one.
