This guitar is the third guitar I have owned. Previously I had a Fender Strat and a Epiphone SG. This guitar is just great. The quality is astounding for the price and the overall feel of the les pauls makes it worth every penny. I would say that this Guitar is great for Intermediate players like myself. Advanced players, with cash would probably go get the Gibson Silverburst. But for this price and its quality, even if you are a pro this is just one hell of a deal. 5 stars what a beautiful guitar.

A "No-Brainer" Deal

By church_mouse03

from Weymouth, MA

Just the looks, alone, draw you in to this magnificent piece. How it plays is only an after thought. But let me tell ya, this axe is nasty! And, at a fraction of the price of a "Gibson", it's an absolute no-brainer. My package arrived yesterday and, right out of the box, I was awe-struck by the quality finish and the deep shine on the body... perfectly contrasted by the chrome hardware and pearl inlays. But when I tuned the strings and played it, I couldn't believe how sweet this guitar felt in my hands. The neck action was perfect right out of the box. I played it clean through my 60 watt Crate and the response and sustain was incredible! The thing practically plays itself! I've been playing only for a few years but there's just no way I'd drop $3400.00 on a Gibson VS. $500.00 on this Epi, where the difference in price does not even come close to quantifying the difference in quality. If not for the name on the headstock, I'd challenge anyone to reveal the difference between the two. I've played Gibson's LP just to humor myself at my local music supply store because there's no way I could afford one. Well... Problem solved, people! If you're on the fence about this one, it will not disappoint. For the price, how can you not pull the trigger if you've been lusting after it like I have?

Epiphone Hits a Homer on this One!

By Jake the Snake

from ny,NY

I previously aquired this guitar used. It was a rare find;perfect condition and priced excellently. My Epi LP Custom is actually the previous incarnation of this edition. It's the same guitar, but it's got a natural vintage sunburst finish rather than the silver finish, and the headstock has the 'les paul model' logo rather than the diamond on this one. As far as playability, you got the same features as a Gibson Les Paul. It's got a thin neck, rigid body. My only complaint is that the neck is finished so well, that it doesn't play as fast as a worn neck or a strat neck. But the action is great. Though I'm no metalist, I sometimes down-tune a step for clean songs, and the guitar still maintains powerful and comfortable acion. Sound-wise, everything you'd want from an LP; thick Jimmy Page treble tones and good bues rythym tones. The humbuckers are crafted well, but sometimes you can hear them rattle when you play unplugged, but who cares? By the way, the Epi LP isn't just a Gibson clone. Epi LP's have a bassier range, making them great rythym guitars. Thus, an Epi is a different guitar. It has nice deep clean tones, but it also has some nice crunchy treble features. It's no telecaster, but it's versatile enouph to imitate one in a band situation. Also, this guitar won't get out of tune for nothing. I've been in Greece for the past summer and when I got back, it was still in tune! Good stock tuners! Overall, this is not just a 'pretty' guitar, it's a healthy alternative to Gibson. Buy it know. I've been playing guitar for about a year, and this is a great quality guitar for the intermiediate player. It's a unique guitar with character. Thanks Epi!

Love It

By DieEierVonSatan

from Richmond, VA

Being a huge Tool fan this guitar is perfect for me, not only is it sleek, sounds amazing, and a fraction of the coast of the Gibson version its an all around great guitar. I've noticed some minor imperfections along the fretboard but that doesnt effect the over all sound of the guitar.... pictures truley dont show you the beauty of this axe.... true the silverburst on the epi is different from the gibson but i personaly think this one looks better... if your looking for a great guitar that all your buddys dont have pick it up

Epiphone always delivers.

By K. Lavadour

from Portland, Oregon

I can never say enough good things about Epiphone. This is my second Les Paul model (the first being a standard in the early 90's) and I am never dissapointed. This ltd edition silverburst custom Les Paul is solid, handsome, and reliable. And the price is affordable.

Absolute Beginner Guitar

By Joe

from Minnesota

Im sick of people telling me "wow you are really good you should get an epiphone." everyone makes fun of my fender style...theres no way this guitar compares to my american strat or telecaster no matter the price. The look is ok but otherwise cheap with bad craftsmanship....the paint usally runs and looks bad the neck is often off center and the frets are uneven on almost every epiphone.. I play blues to metal and this guitar is not near what i need range wise....heavy feedback and its not my amp unless you think marshal and fender make cheap amps. Beginner guitar for 5X as much.

Great Guitar!

By Rob

from Chicago, IL

I saw this guitar in person about a year ago. I played it for the first time and was amazed. It sounds awesome! I went back several times to Guitar Center to play it while I saved up my money to buy it. I recently purchased it last week and am very glad I did. I am in an active band, practicing and playing gigs every other week and I cant wait to get more stage time with it. I put some new strings on it and play it through my Line 6 Spider III amp. It plays great, the action it awesome and the finish is spectacular. I get many compliments from this guitar. Totally worth the money for any musician. If the finish doesn't make you want to buy it right away, the quality of this guitar will. Great product from Epiphone!

God, YES!!!!!

By Danny S.

from Lamar County, Texas

I have had this guitar for over two years and I am still in love with her. The paint is beautiful, the neck is fast, and it stays in tune really well. I installed the EMG Zakk Wylde 81/85 signature pickup set recently and that made it sound that much better. I play blues and heavy metal and this Les Paul can handle anything you throw at her. I play her through my Line 6 Spider 3 150 combo with a Marshall cab and i get excellent heavy bottom ends and face-melting scraming leads with this beast of a Paul. It may not be a Gibson, but it's a close second. I recommend this guitar to anyone and everyone.

Cant go wrong

By Paul

from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

This thing is amazing! i bought this thinking "its not a gibby so its not gonna sound good" (wanting to compare to my friends gibson, and also the fact i couldnt afford a gibson) But i was WAY WRONG! This thing is even a match to the gibson! The pickups are perfect, the neck is smooth, the action is amazing! all around beautiful. The only thing i would recommend getting is some strap locks because it will fall if your not careful, and get the input jack fixed to where it will not mess up or become loose. other than that it is perfect!

Quality Piece

By Philip

from San Diego, CA

For the price, this axe is a steal. Out of the box this thing shines. I was skeptical at first because I didn't know how it would measure up to my Gibson SG Special. I was pretty impressed when I plugged it in. The tones weren't as soft as the SG's humbuckers, but it was clean, especially out of my Marshall MG50DFX. After I trashed those stock strings and put on some Black Beauties, it was more impressive. Already owning the SG and a Fender HSS, I've always wanted a Les Paul and this is very satisfying. With the custom silverburst top, Les Paul Custom logo on the head, and the Les Paul Custom trademark diamond logo on the head it just looks like a winner

Gibson sound at an Epiphone price!!

By Bob M.

from St. Clair Shores, MI

Like alot of others, I've always wanted to own a Gibson Les Paul, but unfortunately I never won the lottery so that I could afford one. I saw this beauty while perusing through my local Guitar Center and decided to give it a little test run, though I was not expecting to be blown away, I have to say that I was quite impressed. The craftmanship on this particular model is pretty good, especially for the price, and the playability is decent as well, so I bought it! While it's definately no Gibson, I still get the rich tones I'm used to hearing from those expensive Les Pauls and after a few upgrades I think it will be able to hold it's own weight, which is good because this sucker is heavy! I definately recommend this to those yearning to have a GLS but can't afford it.

Value beets Quality 101

By SamdeLafonde

from Dallas, TX

I love the color on this Epi and its higher priced Gibson. But the fact is saving nearly $3000 is well worth it. Honestly the Gibson has much better quality and craftsmenship, but the price is heavily effects the over-all deal. I don't think that the quality of the Gibson beets the $3000 you'll save off of the Epi

Great Guitar

By Ben C.

from Buffalo, New York

This is by far the greatest epiphone ever, especially for the price. It responds great to distortion, and it sounds great clean, too. The finish is beautiful, and the neck is great. It feels sturdy and is wide enough to be comfortable for anyone's hands. I used to think Epiphones were knock-off Gibsons, but no longer. This is a Gibson with an Epiphone head. It plays as well as a PRS and better than a Schecter Hellraiser. I love it. The pickups are great. This guitar is great for any kind of music, or from begginner looking for a better guitar or a pro looking for something different. Great buy!

MONEY THAT'S VERY WELL SPENT

By DEEOGEE

from Elkhart IN.

I've been playing for 30 years now and the only issues that I have about this guitar is the fact I only picked up one of them and the other is the same issue for me with the Gibson Les Paul. The cut away in the body isn't quite deep enough. It makes me roll my hand a little to get my pinky on the end of the neck. Other than that, I am very happy with this guitar! I put in at least three hours a day and this is the one I'm always grabing. I had to put strap locks on it and that was all.

Epiphone

By Crazy Mike

from Middle of Nowhere

I think this looks like a good guitar. I tried it out at the guitar store, and it sounds pretty good. I think I'm gonna go back and get it, to add to my collection. The color is beatiful, even though it IS a little bluer or paler than the Gibson model. plus the sound is a little different, but I think it adds character.

Whatabeast!

By David

from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

I bought this guitar about a month ago and i couldn't be happier with my purchase! This thing has some serious warm tone and the neck pickup is grrrrreat for those fast melodic solos! I'm a huge Metallica fan and this thing will give you that classic Metallica Sound! Great for playing Kirks Legendary solos with great looks and a name you can trust! My only 2 real complaints is this thing is in need of some strap locks cause it will fall off the strap if your not careful! and second i would get it Pleked so you can increase the sound to surpass that of a gibson! you wont be disappointed!

By tyler b

from fairfield oh

i want it so bad. it is a good starter guitar and looks incredible. it is really cheap too. i have a starter strat that i have had for years. the sound is nothing compared to the sound of a les paul. it may not be a true gibson but sounds and looks just as great.

think twice

By someone

from arlington tx

i bought this guitar 6 months ago and a week after i got it, it started to buzz took it in and fixed it then i started to to have problems with the jack took it in had to wait two weeks then it started to buzz AGAIN and now the knobs are jiggling, but it does sound good i like that heavy sound that you cant get from a strat but if you have the extra cash buy a gibson think quality and time spent on the guitar not just the way it looks dont make the same mistake i did.
