I have had this guitar for 2+ years and in that time have played many live shows and countless hours of studio work. The pickups are ok out of the box, but a pair of Burstbuckers and new pots make the guitar really sing. It required a full setup at delivery, but once done, I would put it close to my 73 Gibson LP Custom (minus a few thousand dollars). This is a great guitar for the money, highly rated for a lefty. I have been playing for 40 years so this isn't a teenager's review, it's well worth the money.

I purchased this guitar with the intention of keeping my Les Paul at home. Although the black finish with the gold hardware is beautiful, the quality of that hardware leaves a lot to be desired. Despite setting up the action to Epiphone specs (and verifying intonation), I still have fret buzz at the 2nd and 3rd frets on the A string whenever I bend a note. The saddle screws also rattled, and the only fix for that was to shove debris into the briddge to make it stop. Also, the bridge pickup cover rattles if you play it for long periods of time. I would expect issues like this with a lower end guitar, but not one in this price range. I know lefties can't get too picky, but IMHO if you're going to buy Epiphone, I wouldn't recommend this specific guitar.

Having Fun Jamming

By Rock'inTheBurbs

from Rowlett, TX

Comments about Epiphone Left-Handed Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar:

Once I set it up, (changed strings to DR's, adjusted action.) I absolutley love it. sounds awesome, looks awesome. Zepplin, AC/DC, tunes now sound authentic when I rip through'em. A first quality instrument. No need to pay up for the Gibson name on it. Unless your ego needs Gibson prestige. Epiphone has been owned by Gibson USA since 1957.

Decent Studio Guitar

By TTCS2008

Comments about Epiphone Left-Handed Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar about a year and a half ago now and it's held up nicely. The gold finish on the pickups and hardware starts to fade after about 6 months, and the frets start to show wear. As far as tone, it's decent, but nothing close to a Gibson. The price is too much for this thing, it's much to heavy to have great stage presence live, and it's just plain old average.

Pretty dang cool

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Epiphone Left-Handed Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar:

Since I can't afford a Gibson Les Paul, I figured I'd get the next best thing, and I wasn't disappointed. My only complaint is that the neck binding is a little rough in a couple places, but other than that it's a great looking guitar. I might replace the pickups some day, but then again, maybe not. The stock ones sound pretty good, although they lack the high mid-rangey Gibson Les Paul tone. A fine guitar for the money.

Monster Energy

By TeeJay-Qg83Z

from New York City

Comments about Epiphone Left-Handed Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar:

I got this Epiphone Les Paul Custom with a black finish back about two years ago, and this beast still feels great in my hands. I threw an EMG 81 in the neck and an EMG 85 in the bridge and this thing sounds like a MONSTER. I would definately recommend picking this guitar up to any southpaw, definitely worth the price.

singing as a guitar palyer

By 666DANTE666

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Epiphone Left-Handed Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar:

I own this awesome master piece for more than 5 years and it keeps getting better and better every day. I personally recommend any left handed guitarist to own this guitar as one of his/her essential instruments. This guitar is very well crafted to accommodate the need to shred easily or even for any chords. I am not surprised to see the price went up since I bought it 5 years ago. It does deserve every penny paid for it.

Comments about Epiphone Left-Handed Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar:

I've had this guitar for over a year, now, and I play with it on stage every week, and nearly every day in the studio. It's got a great, warm tone for the clean stuff, and sound pretty mean through my POD Pro. I would recommend this guitar to anyone who love the look and feel of a Les Paul, but can't afford the much more expensive Gibson Les Paul Custom. PS - One of the pegs for my guitar strap came out last week, and the wood threads are stripped now. Beware.

This guitar is great. Its a cheap buy for the quality. It plays awsome. The only problem I had is that the gold tuning knobs has some gold scrathed off them when I got it, leaving some looking silver.

Great Sound Great Value

By King of Pain

Comments about Epiphone Left-Handed Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar:

Had this guitar for a month. As a beginner I was not sure what would be a good guitar. I am so glad to find this Epi. Classy looks and great tone. Great for many styles, clean or crunch. Sounds good through my marshall amp. It arrived with a loose volume pot, easy fix. Overall very happy with this Epiphone and this site. Great on time shipping, actually arrived ahead of schedule
