I bought this guitar from a big instrument distributor, not retail. The distributor has channel to directly communicate with Epiphone and Gibson. They were surprised when first seeing this guitar because its quality and the materials are identical to guitars from Gibson custom shop. The distributor called Gibson and got the following speculation - Gibson's sales revenue in 2004 dropped severely while was reluctant to reduce the selling price, so they built such an amazing guitar in Gibson custom shop with Epiphone brand to sell for much lower price. By doing this they can get better sales revenue.I believe that this is true. If you look at the volume and tone adjuster, there are gold plated pointers which can only be seen on high class Gibson, not low level Gibson or Epiphone guitars. Also look at the tuning keys, those are which can only be seen on collectable vintage Gibsons. I had a friend who owns Gibson custom look and play this boneyard guitar, he concluded that the boneyard is a Gibson custom made.I have been playing guitars for twenty years and played almost anything out there. I love Gibson tone while hate its price. That's the reason why I did not have a Gibson guitar. However, when I first saw and played this guitar, immediately I knew I was going to get a USA Gibsonn guitar with Epiphone price. I have been working for many years and can afford any expensive guitars you name. At the time I bought boneyard, I also looked at all the high class guitars from Tom Anderson, PRS, Jackson, Gibson, Fender, ..., etc. Nothing out played this boneyard. I believe that Gibson or Epiphone will stop building this model soon or increase its price. Look around when you go to the music instrument shops - what kind of guitar can you get at this price? Only the mediocre ones and you have to heavily rely on the effects to improve the poor tones! This boneyard guitar is different, it has a very thick, warm and meaty tone with excellent sustain. If you are looking for a Gibson guitar with super c/p value, believe me, this boneyard is the right one for you.

I can't say enough about it. All the features of the Gibson custom with a third or less price. The humbuckers (Gibson burstbuckers) have the greatest sparkle on the top, but they put out lots of low end dirty tones too. I recommend it to any one looking at Les Pauls of any sort. I do not feel you will get a better guitar without going through the gibson custom shop, and that includes the LP Standards. I love true Gibson LP's, but this Epiphone has a Standard or Studio beat hands down.

It's all about the sound

By Bummed--NaC3

This is my fifth Les Paul. Three Gibson's and two Epis. The look of this guitar is certainly unusual. It's a looker but the main reason that I bought it is the Burstbuckers. I have a Gibson with Burstbucker Pros and love the sound. However I was really amazed at the sound from these Burstbucker 2 and 3s. It's absolutely stunning. The guitar is rigged with the pickups out of phase in the middle position. This gives it a beautiful phaser effect which is unique in my experience. In the down and up positions, the pickups are well-defined and super-hot in their tonal range. Without a doubt, this guitar has the best sound of any guitar I have ever owned and I've been playing for forty years. You have to play and hear this baby to believe it. The weight of the guitar is somewhat less than a regular Paul and for many this will be a plus. Way to go Epiphone. I must confess that with the quality Epiphone is putting out these days, you'd have to be filthy rich or a "guitar-as-showpiece" collector to opt for a Gibson over Epiphone. Who wants a guitar that you need a Lloyds of London Policy to take out the front door? Epihone has won me over for good. Their Standards are just as good as Gibsons. You might want to install better pickups. Gibson knows this and makes Epi use inferior pickups so as to not deflect from their sales. Go for the Boneyard!. With real Gibson Burstbucker 2 and 3s, it's the best you can do in an Epiphone. Love this guitar!!!

Joe Perry Boneyard

By TrentM

from Bloomington, IN

This guitar is awesome! I have played many guitars and bought even more, trying to find the one for me. I found it in the Epiphone Joe Perry Bone yard Les Paul. The neck is smooth and fast, it is surprisingly light, the Gibson Burst buckers give superior clean and crunching dirty sounds and this thing is beautiful. This guitar is comparable in every way to the Gibson Les Paul standard, but at thousands less you can't go wrong.

Great Guitar

By Vader

I got one of these about 2 weeks ago and havent been able to put it down. This guitar is top notch in everyway. The tone, the finish, the playabililty, and the quality. I know there are people that feel that Epiphones are just cheap knock offs or Gibsons but this guitar is exceptional. I can't imagine a Gibson sounding or playing any better than this, and this guitar is less than half the price of a Les Paul Standard.

By 627guitarits.Eddie

from apple valley,CA

i just got it, and it's great. The feeling you get is like holding a gigson or a prs guitar. The thing i liked about it was that it was really light in weight, it's comfortable. i love it. you must buy it.

Great Buy

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I recently got this guitar and I would have to say I like it much more that my Gibson Les Paul Vintage Mahogany. First of all the look of this guitar is killer, the tiger finish is unbelievable. Second, I prefer the sound of the BB 2 and 3 over the BB Pros. I like to play GnR, Zeppelin, ACDC, VR, and of course Aerosmith, and this nails all of the tones. I havent had any problems with the pickup selector, and the tuners are good enough. For the money I don't think there is a better buy.

Worth it...

By Scott-QkXsI

from Morgantown WV

This is a great guitar with a great finish. There is a draw back, the tuners are crap. I replaced mine with Gibson Vintage Tuners & I also put on some Gibson Humbucker guitar strings. I bought a Traynor YCV 40 & now this baby sings & stays in tune. It is a joy to play & it's a great deal.

OK, Can I just say WOW!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I just unpacked this guitar and I can?t put it down. This thing just ROCKS! No other way to describe it. Sustain and power are incredible. I was going to hold out for a Classic Les Paul but just couldn?t swing it. I saw where this particular Epiphone featured the Burst Buckers (Same as the new Gibson?s) so I took a shot. I just saved myself some serious cash. A few flaws on the paint and the pick-up selector switch is a little gimpy but very minor issues for the incredible value. Joe - Thanks for working with Gibson and Epiphone to bring us this great guitar!

Review

By The Rossness

from West Hartford, CT

I wanted The USA Burstbuckers and couldn't get them instaled in a les paul or Dean Cadillac for any less money, so there is value in this guitar. The satin finish is nice, am mankes playing a little smoother. The tuners are rubbish, and the orange pickup selector switch was a little on the raw side. I would describe the sound as crushing (as compared to my MM Axis, which I would call tangy). The sound is absolutly devistating. I play through my fender tube and line 6 pod. I can go from a blues riff to tapping to jazzy stuff at a molments notice. I also like being able to switch from a bass neck tone to a hot neck tone. The individual tone an volume controlls work well for that. I think the quality is iffy. I bought one used once only to return it because the bridge PU was shot, and the shop couln't fix it. Also the tuners are really horrible. However,for the money, I got the sound I was looking for and could not get out of my wolfie, axis or RG. Overall, great sound, bad tuners, nice satin finish neck, and the cool tiger stripe finish on the outside. Rokk on!!!
