So, I'm a novice guitar player who had been trying to learn on an acoustic I picked up a couple of years ago and only half practiced on from time to time. About 6 months ago, I got really serious about wanting to play, but have always wanted an electric!

I did a lot of research before going to Guitar Center and thought I wanted the Slash AFD Guitar package. In all fairness, it did not sound bad, but as I began to try more and more guitars my ear started to gravitate to a more expensive guitar. The tone just sounded better, the feel of the instrument just seemed more comfortable, etc.

Well, I had all but settled on an older Epiphone Les Paul Standard that I loved the sound of, unfortunately it felt like it weighed a good 25 pounds or so. I told the salesman I would take it if he had a new one in the back. He did not, but he said he had something better. That's when he showed me this Epiphone Les Paul Plus Top Pro. It was the same beautiful Desert Burst design as the heavier/older Epiphone, but it was far more vibrant and rich in its overall color and luster! Additionally, it was lighter and felt easier to work my fingers up and down the neck.

I instantly fell in love with it!

It was only about $115 more than the older Epiphone I initially wanted and it plays like a dream!

If you are looking for a solid guitar with a beautiful sound, look and feel, look no further, this is the instrument for you.

Trust me!

I find the finish on the guitar flawless, it is absolutely beautiful. The neck is wonderful and action was great right off the rack. My issue is that the pickups sound terrible. They are weak and do not produce that creamy lead tone I was looking for and overall just sound cheap. I am an Ace Frehely fan and will replacing the pickups with dimarzio super distortions. Overall it's a beautiful instrument but I hate the pick ups. I also find that the G-string is difficult to keep in tune. I have read other reviews where people experienced the same issue, but replaced the cheap nut and had no other issues.

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard PlusTop Pro Electric Guitar:

    The best crafted newer epiphone I have played recently. I do not own this but have played 2 on 2 separate occasions both I noticed "crafted in indonesia" WHAT? I owned a Squire Vintage Modified that was beautiful beyond expectations and this is the same.
    The knobs are smooth and don't feel cheap and the flame top is beautiful.

    Would def recommmend this guitar

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard PlusTop Pro Electric Guitar:

    Good, well built guitar. Great finish good sounding pickups. This is my opinion only and I'm sure it depends on the player but I've found its not great for punk/metal, my Ibanez RG is much better for that. The coil split is a nice feature too. I'm certainly happy with my purchase as the guitar performs as advertised but I was hoping I'd love it more than I do. The Low E and A string buzz like crazy even after intonation set up.

    Great Les Pual

    By 

    from Oregon

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard PlusTop Pro Electric Guitar:

    I don't know if this guitar needs another great review, but here goes. This is my 3rd Epi LP. I have a Tribute plus and a Black beauty. This guitar is another great LP. the finish, hardware and construction are great. Plays well. I was thinking that I may change the pickups for some Gibsons, but I honestly can't hear any difference between the three different pickups. This guitar has probuckers. the tribute has Gibson USA 57 classics and the BB has Epi alnico classics. They all sound very good. The probuckers are supposed to be a little hotter. Maybe someone with a better ear can, but I can't.

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard PlusTop Pro Electric Guitar:

    If you do not care about the name on the head stock I totally recommend this tone full beauty.The pickups and finish are what sold me. Setup was easy for me. I dress the frets. Change strings. Loosen the trust rode for more relief. Adjust bridge hight and intonation. Adjust pickup hight for even out put volume. But would recommend to have a professional do it if your not in the know how. I have been playing for 30yrs and I have to say epiphone knock it out the park with the probuckers . They sound great through my collection of fender blackface and silverface amps. The probuckers let me switch between tele's and les paul with out having to change EQ. That is important when switching guitars on stage. I could have bought a Gibson for $1200+ and would end up with a resale value of $800. Or buy the Epiphone with resale value around $350-400.

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard PlusTop Pro Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar about 3 months ago and I can't imagine having gotten anything better. It's just an amazing guitar in every way possible. I got it in the Heritage Cherry Sunburst finish and I still catch myself staring at it on occasion. I even took the pickguard off so I could see more of the body. My only complaint is the knobs. They just look cheap, nothing major. I play a lot of Pink Floyd and this guitar sounds even more incredible with an overdrive pedal. I use the Buffalo FX Patriot on its own and I transform into David Gilmour. The sustain was more than I expected, and in combination with the Patriot, it is unreal. Gibson is going to have to up its game to create more separation between themselves and Epiphone. Epi has definitely come a long way and this guitar is proof of that. Well, this review is over.... I've got a guitar that is just begging to be played.

    I've had my Honeyburst for about 3 weeks now..i wanted to play it for awhile before i gave it a review..i've been playing for many years and have played alot of guitars and this one rates up there as one of the best ..for playability and all around quality..if it didnt say Epiphone it would be very hard for anyone to tell the difference..in my humble opinion is as good as it gets at a fraction of the price for a real LP..I love it!!

    One of, if not the best, guitars under $500

    By 

    from Castle Rock, CO

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard PlusTop Pro Electric Guitar:

    I bought this new about a year ago. I chose vintage sunburst (I wish black was an option). Personally, I think this is a great value for a first or second guitar. It plays and feels really good. The sunburst color looks fantastic from certain lighting.I play this through Fender Mustang amps and it works really well with all the settings on that amp. Quick pros and cons. Pro's: great value, sound, coil tapping works great on cleaner amp sounds. To me, there is just a feeling I get playing a classic style guitar. Covers lots of genres (primarily i play symphonic metal, classic metal, and fingerpicking classical, celtic, jazz) but sounds just as good for blues and rock. Cons: Idk if it was just my guitar or the whole line in general, but after a couple months, whenever i would switch from bridge to neck p.u., it wouldn't "switch" right. sound would still come out even if the volume knob was at 0. The input jack gets lose everytime I play (it's an easy fix though). Just personal, but I do not like the creme color of the pickup holder/case thing. Overall, I feel like I spent my money well.

    HUGE PERFORMANCE AND VALUE!

    By 

    from California

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard PlusTop Pro Electric Guitar:

    I was looking for a guitar with lots of tonal diversity, and I really wanted a Les Paul. I was sure that I couldn't afford one and would have to settle for something different. While shopping, reading and watching reviews online of tons of manufacturers and models I kept coming across the Epiphone Les Pauls. I had disregarded them because they didn't say GIBSON on the headstock. I was so wrong. I went into Guitar Center and played a few and compared them to Gibsons and was pleasantly surprised. I found them to be extremely similar in feel and tone and The Pro Bucker Pickups sound Amazing. I ordered one in the vintage sunburst. The fit and finish is outstanding for a guitar in this price range, and the photos don't do it justice. I can dial in clean singing tones, and everything from Classic Rock sounds, to modern high gain sounds. The coil taps give me the ability to play a huge variety of styles without needing to change guitars. The whole package is solid. There is no need to change the tuners, pickups, or controls, they all work extremely well. The guys at Guitar center did an awesome set up for me, and set everything up for 10 gauge strings. I'm using the D'Addario NYXL strings now. I will probably add a Gibson to my collection at some point, but this will serve me admirably till then. This Is a quality guitar at a very fair price. If you are in the market for a new guitar that has great looks, style and an impressive tonal pallet, do yourself a favor and go try one.

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard PlusTop Pro Electric Guitar:

    Here's the deal; I could afford to buy the $2500 Gibson and I would have if I was more experienced, but for the $, this will do just fine. The quality is very good, the electronics are top notch, the fit and finish is great. The instrument has a nice feel to it, nice weight, it feels more expensive than it is. I've had it a few months now and and it has been flawless. I did try the $2500 Gibson and sure, you can feel the difference but for the $ this is the way to go. When I get much better I will get the Gibson but the Epi is fantastic.
