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.

I've had this guitar for about 6 months and I love it. I've had no problems with it at all and the continues to blow me away. The BurstBuckers sound really great. The price of this guitar is a steal compared to the Epiphone Les Paul Standard becuase for $100 more, you could get a cool paint job, Gibson BurstBuckers, and a Limited Edition guitar! Also, this guitar looks better in person than in the pictures.
This is an outstanding guitar for the money.I played a Gibson Les Paul 1958 model in a store that does'nt come close to this guitar in looks or sound.From the moment I took it out of the box I was blown away by the looks,but plugging it in really hooked me.I find the tuners work well,I guess it depends on how hard you hit the strings.Unless you have the money and want a more vivid tiger stripe,you cannot go wrong with this guitar compared to it's Gibson counterpart.
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.
I got this guitar about a week ago. I LOVE it. The tone is great! The satin finish on the neck makes it easy to change frets. If you're looking for great tone and great looks, buy it.
WOW! I got this guitar a month ago and it just is the best thing ever! It is the my favorite out of my 15 guitars. I have played 3 gigs with this baby and I never sounded better! The sound is amazing and easy to handle. I'm in love.
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!!!
Just got it yesterday. Overall, did not see any flaws in the fit, finish, or hardware. I did not like the artifical relic-ing effect; makes the plastic binding and perloid look cheap. Satin finish on neck is smooth and frets are nice and level. Sound? This guitar will hold note; of course, pickups make the difference. Body has som weight for sustain and tone, so you will get that famed les paul sound. Overall, the Epi artist series guitars seem to be a step above; I'm still pining for the Zakk Wylde. The Boneyard has the look, the feel, and the value of a great intermediate - professional guitar.
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!
Just got this guitar last week and I can't put it down. I have a American Fender and it doesn't even come close to the tone and output this gives. I run it throught my Crate Palamino V32 and I'm telling you it sounds just like any band you want to sound like. The burstbuckers rock. The out of phase sound is a little strange but I'm sure I'll be able to use it for something. Has a very unique sound. The mat finish is very smooth for sliding up and down the neck. I've read a couple of other reviews complaining about the finish but I haven't found any on mine. The only thing I need to do is change strings.
I got this axe the other day and all I can say is WOW, THIS THING ROCKS! The Gibson Burstbucker pickups in this thing will give you all the tone you need from blues to metal. The finish on this axe is sweet. I've got alot of compliments from the aged tiger finish. MY guitar was in mint condition right out of the box. I have to tip my hat to the people at Epiphone for building such a great guitar. This guitar is something both Epiphone and Joe Perry should be proud of.
