The LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece provide more sustain and string changing easier.

My son own two guitars The first one was a Fender i bought him this one because he has became a pro at guitar and this one sounds amazing it sound like a Gibson It's a perfect guitar for itermmedate guitar players there is no problem's with the pick ups which is good the it has 24 frets which is awesome basically a great guitar i recommend this to any lefty out there
Great guitar for the price and about as close to the sound and feel of a genuine Les Paul as you can get. I have owned this guitar for a couple weeks now and the more I play it the more I like it. I had to make several adjustments before I could make it playable so needless to say, I was not impressed by the initial setup from the factory. The strings were dirt cheap and the low E had a dog-leg kink in it between the pickup and bridge. Once I adjusted the truss rod, changed strings, adjusted the intonation, and action height, it was good to go. The factory setup was terrible so plan on doing all of these things if you buy a new one. I still have a slight issue keeping two of the strings in tune after slight bending so I think I will replace the factory nut with a graph-tec. The pickups are pretty hot also. Well above average and the harmonics and sustain is great for a mid level epiphone. All in all a great buy for the price paid.
I'll start by saying that I own two Epiphone Les Pauls. This one and a right handed standard. They're the same guitar. This one is just left handed. Both are excellent guitars with a great sound. There don't seem to be any quality control issues. I'd recommend this to any lefties out there.
Got this Les Paul a few years back as a gift and have really gotten to know it. Here's the breakdown: Pickups: I'm more of a P-90 man, and the neck pickup sounds a little bland, so I usually crank the treble on my amp to compensate. The middle and bridge positions sound great, though. Hardware and Electronics: Tuners, nut, and stoptail are very good and feel solid. Two knobs were set so low that they dug into the body and two knobs were set 1/4" off the body, so this was a little concerning and needed to be adjusted (not a job for beginners). The tone controls (esp. the bridge) do almost nothing, so I would suggust replacements. The interior electronics and input jack are all very good quality. The plastics do feel cheap, but for this price... I'll take 'em. Neck and Body: The neck is a good standard Gibson-style neck. I like thin Epiphone (Casino-style) necks, but this one feels okay. I probably will never own another black guitar because this finish shows every fingerprint, nick, and grease mark and requires frequent cleaning. Neck joint is very solid. Overall Feel and Tone: Good guitar for classic rock and even jazz. Since its a Les Paul, it is heavy, but sometimes while playing live I don't even feel the guitar. Good Les Paul tone. The volume controls respond very well to your amp and vice versa. Bottom Line: If you are a beginning or advanced player, don't spend the unnessecary money and buy a Gibson. You are paying for the name. Epiphones are great guitars and anyone who says they aren't is a fool. They are built with the same standard and level of workmanship as American Gibsons. If you close your eyes, they sound the same. Please consider this guitar if you want a Les Paul.
I picked this guitar up yesterday and i am just blown away! The strings are easy to bend and it has trapezoid fret inlays which i really like. With a good amp, this can sound great. You could absolutely pull off Gn'R or Aerosmith riffs. Really the only thing I don't like is the "Handcrafted in China" sticker and peeling it off dosen't make a difference. Overall I really do like this guitar and if your in a band, this could work as your main axe.
Ive spent a long time looking for the right guitsr to play, and i definently found it. This guitar is amszing, and worth way more then the price. My older brother got a gibson les paul a few weeks ago and they sound pretty similer. if your tight on cash definently buy the epiphone
I bought mine slightly used, but only ever so slightly used. And yes, I did a couple of upgrades- Burstbucker Pro pups and Gibson Grover tuners. Neither was really needed; nonetheless the pups made a dramatic difference, for the better, in the guitar's tone, the tuners were functionally the same as the Grovers that came on it, only benefit was their "bell" shaped heads. If I hadn't had the tuners from way back when, when Mars Music went belly-up, I wouldn't have bothered. The guitar is a very fine one. Not perfect, but a surpising value, given that you are paying something just for the name. I'd recommend it. Oh, btw, I am listening to the Cranberries while I write this. That band REALLY makes me wish I were young enough to be taken seriously as a rocker...
ok this is an awome guitar.... but there are some bad things about it tho... 1st it is made in china and taking off the sticker doesnt change that. the pickups r good if you like all of the notes blending in2 everything which is pretty annoying(just get new 1s) the intinations are so ways screwed up ive had 2 fix them a few times but its not really a big deal.. the good stuff is its pretty its light 4 a les paul and it sounds good once you fix everything so i recomend this but just make sure you fix this stuff so u dont sound like an idiot trying 2 play a song at a gig THE END
I received this guitar for my birthday and it is amazing. It looks much better than the picture. It is a beautiful guitar with a great sound. It came perfectly set up and in great condition. I have not been able to put it down.
On having acquired the guitar Epiphone Les Paul Standard buys a qualit instrument that allows me to touch my music with real pleasure and to facilitate me to give sure steps in my lessons of music. It is a product that satisfies my expectation.
