Bought the cherry burst LP-100 4+ years ago, and it was my first electric. The frets were rough, with some buzzing, and I never liked the tone with the stock Epi PUs. About a year ago I started some mods for both looks and tone. Got rid of the creme pick guard and swapped the creme accents for black. Swapped out the muddy stock PUs for a set of GFS Vintage 59s (very cheap and worth the investment) and it now sounds awesome. Swapped the LP-100 truss cover for a stylish Epiphone "E" cover, not because I'm hiding it being an LP-100 (will tell anyone who asks about it), but because I hot-rodded it. Had a tech do the work, along with a fret dressing, and it now feels as good as it sounds. If you buy this for a kid/beginner and invest a little, he or she could play this for years. Really a very decent guitar for the money and fun to mod/personalize.

The best thing about this guitar is the reputation of an lp. Despite the dot inlays on the neck, and the epiphone headstock, this guitar looks just as sweet as a classic paul. The price though, tells you clearly that it isn't.The mojor short comings on this guitar are it's pickups, and it's hardware. The pickups aren't great. The tone they produce is kind of thin without any effects on it. Playing this guitar clean is dissappointing, and no where near the sweetness of a gibson of any price range. This is easily fixed with the installation of gibson pickups ( 490r and 498t alnico like in the supreme lp model or '57 classics rec.) though that will set you back a bit.A much quicker and also highly beneficial fix would be to add new tuners. Grovers are industry standard and are also used on gibsons. The standard tuners on this guitar fall short of keeping intonation. On mine, the strings were out of tune just about as soon as I put it down. easy fix. Overall, this is a good guitar for the money, especially for a begginner who won't require more and may not notice the difference. And when the guitar's initial tone is outgrown, it's a much smaller amount of money to upgrade this guitar than it would be to buy a newer and better one.

Completely Satisfied!

By Madeline Richey

from Indiana

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul 100 Electric Guitar:

I have no complaints whatsoever outside the stock strings. It is absolutely beautiful in every detail and to my pleasant suprise the Epiphone Les Paul 100 is easier to play than my Squier Strat.
I am new to guitar playing so to be honest it is hard for me to evaluate all of the features of the Epiphone Les Paul 100 accurately. The tuning machines on this instrument are much more sensitive than I am use to but it was quite easy for me to adjust to that and get it in tune quickly. I certainly like it much better than my Fender Squier Strat if that helps.
Everything on the Epiphone Les Paul 100 seems to be very high quality and well made for the price. The only "complaint" that I have is the quality of the stock strings, but isn't that usually the case when you buy a new guitar? I ordered a couple of packs of Ernie Ball strings with this in anticipation of that.
The Epiphone Les Paul 100 is truly a fantastic guitar for the price. A real value to be sure!

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul 100 Electric Guitar:

I'm really happy with this and would recommend it to anyone except the most discerning and/or snobbish players.
The neck is good. The pickups are good, but be aware that they match those on the Les Paul Jr. All you need to do is go to the Epi website and compare that. I think the tuners are good. Like the pickguard and knobs and switches.

You get dots instead of trapezoids on the frets. The consumer must decide if that is a problem.
If you define quality as an item that is robust, does not require any maintenance out of the box, and is ready to play out of the box, then I give this a 9 or a 10. Seriously, you will read other reviews of other guitars about how you need to change out the cheap strings right away. That's not necessary with this axe. I played two gigs with it before I changed strings.
Beautiful finish. Good tuners. Good pickups. Sweet neck. Excellent intermediate guitar. I'm not embarrased to play it, in fact, have had pros way better than me pick it up and play and like it. Do not overlook this guitar just because it has a great price.

Fantastic Value For The Price!

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul 100 Electric Guitar:

Final thoughts....it is what it is...if it sounds good, it is good! I have had around 50...yes 50 guitars in my life and this one deserves to be at the top of my list. And yes...I have had real Gibsons and Fenders so I know what I'm talking about. There is always going to be someone that is mad over some minor issues. That's why there is a return policy. Enough talkin...it's time for Rockin!
This may come with a few minor adjustments needed (in reference to "humbuckers are of poor quality, the neck is crooked, and tuning knobs are loose") but if you know how to use a wrench you can tighten the tuning knobs or replace the humbuckers - even though I think they are great for the price - and you can return it if the neck is crooked. I'm sure with the number of guitars produced there may be a few affected by conditions before they reach the consumer. Now stop yer complaining! I have been playing for 41 years and I am amazed at the quality you can find for under $1,000. I have had 3 Gibson Les Pauls and this is of equal quality - without the back breaking weight. It's not as light as the Epiphone specials but with the extra weight come tone and sustain. This is well worth checking out! And speaking of pickups...if you put a good set of strings on this it will become a rock and roll machine!
Very high quality. In the 70's you could not touch anything of this quality for under $1000.
When I first picked one of these up I was trying out a Peavey 6505+ amp and was blown away by this guitar (the amp had that "WOW" factor also) but I bought the guitar instead. Plays like butter right out of the box. Fantastic value.

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul 100 Electric Guitar:

    First off, let me say that I wrote a review on this instrument when I first got it a couple of years ago, but I'm writing another review because now I what I'm talking talking about, unlike I did back then.
    That being said, this guitar is amazing! I own a Squier Stratocaster Standard and a Yamaha APX500II acoustic (I like cheaper guitars. They play better to me for some reason.) My Strat has a thinner and smoother neck, so I use it for the better feel. But for tone, this LP has got it in the bag! I told a friend I got a cheap Les Paul, and he asked "un-covered or covered pickups?" I said they were un-covered, and he was so happy. Granted, covered pickups look much better, but for tone, un-covered is the way to go. And humbuckers, no less! If I could choose between my Strat and this Les Paul, I would probably choose this Les Paul, as the tone and sound is unsurpassed by even the finest Gibsons.
    As for looks and feel, this not too bad. It has a thinner body than other Pauls, and a bolt-on neck makes it a little different, but it's fantastic. Also, the pictures on Musicians Friend hardly do it justice, as the guitar looks so much more beautiful in person (I have the heritage cherry sunburst.) I strung this bad boy up with a set of Ernie Ball Cobalt Series .10's, and it is unsurpassed by anything!
    A lot of people complain that the strap buttons are bad. Well... they are. But I had strap locks on this thing for a bit, and they were great, because they completley sovled the problem. I gave the locks to my church's bass player as a gift, and I bought a DiMarzio ClipLock strap earlier this year, and with the combination of this strap and the lighter weight of the guitar itself, this thing is very comfortable to play standing up.
    My only con; it has dot fret markers, not the block ones. But who really cares? It's the best Les Paul you can get for this price range, and it's even better than most in the $1,000's range. I would guarantee if you buy this, you will not be sorry!

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul 100 Electric Guitar:

    The ebony Les Paul 100 was my birthday present this year. With its black paint, chrome hardware, and creme-colored pickup rings and pick guard, it is a stunner. With Dunlop strap locks, it's sublime.

    It blew my 1980s B.C. Rich NJ series Bich-style guitar out of the water tone-wise. Completely pwn'd it. Running the Rich through my 'metal' amPlug makes everything go "djent djent djent" and I smile all stupidly happy. Running the Epi Les Paul 100 through it gave me noticable string definition while still crunching, punching, and squealing with the best of them. Didn't think that was possible with the electronics on a priced to own guitar. Also, it felt SOO much more comfortable to play despite the Rich having a scalloped fretboard. The Les Paul feels buttery in a good way, but not so good that you can't make eye contact with anyone.

    Also, the Epi Les Paul 100 feels 'too easy' to play when using very light strings like 8s and 9s. Even 10s are pushing it in terms of being too slinky in E standard tuning (from the guy that loves Billy Gibbons Dunlop 7s and Ernie Ball Extra Slinkys on his other guitar). The guitar is currently wearing SIT 10-48s and really wants 11-50s to compromise between sounding its best and being playable with my wimpy li'l fingers.

    It's light, it plays like a breeze, sounds like a dream, looks like you need to wear a tuxedo to wear it, and doesn't cost seven gajillion buxx0rz. Sure it could use better strap buttons (or a strap-lock setup) and stainless steel frets, but it's three oceanliners full of butt-kicking awesomeness for a very reasonable price as is. The only reason not to get the Ebony LP-100 is because you already have one of the burst pattern ones in its place.

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul 100 Electric Guitar:

    Got this guitar for my first "decent" guitar, and it taught me everything I know. After out growing my amp, I knew my next upgrade was the pickups, which were the EMG "Het Set", which were the best choice I ever made. Great tone, great action once adjusted. The only issues I've had, is I had to replace a tuning key that stripped after only 3 sets of strings, and when replacing the pickups, the hole in the guitar is very small, so it was hard to wire.

    I use this to play metal, rock, grunge, as well as using my chorus pedal on it. It's not to heavy, and is well balanced. Personally, the best 270 I ever spent. I will never get rid of my first real guitar.

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul 100 Electric Guitar:

    Let's talk for a bit. I own a Gibson Les Paul, but I wanted to buy Epiphone this time around to use for smaller gigs. The reason is because there is only a slight difference in sound between these two fine guitars that are owned by Gibson, but one is made overseas the other made in America. You got tales and you got tells of this guitar that is moving up in the ranks. By Changing the pickups you can get pretty darn close to an original Les Paul minus the lighter weight in the guitar versus a heavier weight in the Gibson. My guitar was shipped nicely and when I plugged it into my Marshall Amp, I shredded it. If you buy Epihone your buying a good guitar for a good price and with a few modifications can make it sound just as good as an original Gibson Les Paul by simply changing the pick ups which is a matter of taste because the pick ups on the Epihone work great for a lot of musicians to tend to leave them be.

      A real "fake" Les Paul for this price???? YES!!!!!
      Ok, so my guitarist laughed at this purchase. But if you are like me, a keyboard player who always wanted to play guitar, you just can't go wrong! I'll never be a Jimmy Page but I COULD be a Malcolm Young IF I practice enough. But the feel and the playability of this guitar is GREAT! I use it through a Vox amp with a nice Korg effects pedal and I'm able to contribute to a few Neil Young and Cream songs right off the bat. Guitar will never be my main instrument, but for me; this is a joy to hold and play. Plus I have always liked the sound of Epiphones, regardless what the experts tell me! Get one, you won't be disappointed!

      A good guitar for the Price

      By joesplaceny

      from florida

      Comments about Epiphone Les Paul 100 Electric Guitar:

      Overall I do think that this guitar is well worth the little cost, I think credit has to be given to Gibson and epiphone for overseeing the quality of overseas company that makes this guitar. I also want to say that I bought the epiphone Les Paul hardshell case after I received and played the guitar and knew I was going to keep it, the case is also of good quality. I have played professionally for many years and also for fun Jamming with friends and other musicians, and exclusively played my 70s fender strat, and will continue to play the strat as the action is better and a little easier to play and I like the fender sound, I play the strat with the original fender Tube Concert Amp and I play the Les Paul with the concert amp and it sounds good also.I also play both with the Line 6 Jam amp and they also sound very good on the line 6 jam amp. I intend to play the Les Paul as often as I can and I do enjoy playing it.
      I received this guitar on June 5 and I was very happy to see it was well packed for shipping and was in very good condition when I received it. The action is very easy to set up I changed the strings as it comes with .10 and I like a lighter string. The guitar sounds and players very well the humbuckers sound good the 2 volume and tone work fine and the neck and treble switch works well at this time. It seems the Les Paul 100 is a well built and quality guitar at this time and only time will tell how it will hold up. I think if care is taken it should last a long time. I have owned a lot of guitars in my time and in my time all guitars were made in USA. I did not really like the Gibson the necks are big and bulky but I did like some of the deeper sounds. The guitar I played the most is my70s Fender Strat and I think I will play this Les Paul 100 more also.
      The guitar seems of good Quality, right now I think if there is a flaw it would be in the tuning knobs, right now I have a little problem with one tuning knob the 3rd string [G] goes out of tune during playing a short time I will try to tighten tuning knob to see if this will help. But over all the quality is good
      I think that the epiphone les paul 100 is a great value for the price, it sounds good and plays well for a non USA guitar I dont think you will find better, I hate to say this because I am a real fender fan and I have played some of the fender non USA guitars and they were terrible.

      Comments about Epiphone Les Paul 100 Electric Guitar:

      This guitar is a sweet low priced Les Paul. Not the high dollar brother but a very great guitar. Worth far more than than any throw away or don't care if it's lost or stolen. And I really like tone better than quacking sounds of the other lower end guitars. I would not be one bit ashamed to play this guitar out where it would be seen. There is still the blood line to remember here.
      It has everthing it's big bother has. To me I've lost count of the guitars I've owned. So much better than a Squirer.
      Has great fill. It is a Paul by weight and is very well put together.
      Here is the the big different from all the want to be's. It's made by the real thing's company. Yes it has to bolt on neck but the weight makes it sing. Some people want the High Dollar name. Plug it up toyour favorite amp and let it rip. For the most part if listeners don't see the headstock or neck joint they'll never know.

      I suggest that you get strap locks.

      Comments about Epiphone Les Paul 100 Electric Guitar:

      First of all, the pictures of this guitar hardly do it justice. The finish is very rich and deep, and the different colours in the burst flow nicely into each other. Another thing that you cant really tell from the pictures, is that it have a contoured top, not a flat top.This guitar looks, feel and sounds stunning The finish, as I have said, is beautiful. It weighs approximately 10 lbs.( probably a wee bit less).And this comes as to why I say that it needs strap locks. My guitar has fallen off my strap several time, and I have been able to catch it each time (this is why you hold onto the neck when you play). However the last time this happened, I didn't get it in time. This is not a guitar you want falling 3 feet onto you toes. The guitar is fine, even after its plummet, so I can honestly say that it is well constructed.So far te only problems I have had with this guitar is that the volume selector knob for the bridge pick-up, stopped working. So in other words you cant really turn the volume down or off. Not a huge problem. My other problem is that the nut isn't very tall( the strings sit about 1/16 of an inch above the first fret) This causes minor fret buzz, but only on the first fret. So it doesn't really bother you unless you're playing the strings open.Apart form these small foibles, this is a brilliant guitar. The only this i would change aesthetically, would be bonding(I know guitars only have this to cover the transition between the body and where the maple cap is stuck on, that, by the way this guitar does not have. but I like the look of it) And it would be nice with block inlays instead of dots, but hey, nothings perfect.Bottom line. This is an amazing guitar, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a less expensive guitar.

      Definetly a keeper

      By Evan Woods

      from U.S.

      Comments about Epiphone Les Paul 100 Electric Guitar:

      Bottom line, this is a top of the line instrument, its like finding a brand new Cadillac for almost half the price. This is definitely something Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, or any other guitarist would walk on stage with confidence, no matter your play style, this is a guitar to consider.
      I love how there is a tone and volume knob for each pickup and the tone knobs actually work from 0-10, and when both pickups are on, if one is set to a different volume/tone, they sound out at the volume/tone they were set to. The body and neck being bent at an angle give natural pull on the strings giving more sustain and not slipping out of tune.
      The neck and fretboard are extremely straight, I only noticed a very, very, very slight twist from the nut to body, but I'm sure no guitar is %100 perfect. When switching from a single pickup to both pickups, the switch flicks very easy, but when going from both pickups to 1, you just have to use a little more force. The tuning pegs were a little crooked and the epiphone name was too, but that has no effect on the sound, and nothing on the guitar was damaged or scratched. I played it through a Berrhinger amp(not the best sounding amp) with the stock strings on, and it still sounded excellent, still that heavier tone and crisp clean crunch with or with out distortion. THE SUSTAIN IS INCREDIBLE. I held 1 note for like 3 seconds, and slid down the neck and still sounded out!
      I got this particular one NEW for $250 which was half off. For all the excellent quality and good features, and most of all sound, the price can't be beat by too much. If you want an excellent guitar for yourself or a gift, this has all the value you'll probably ever find.

        Comments about Epiphone Les Paul 100 Electric Guitar:

        First I'd like to say that I'm a newborn on the guitar scene so I don't know about "feel", "tone", "pickup" etc...
        I bought the guitar because I've read that it's a great guitar for a beginner and I like the Les Paul. It's beautiful, was packaged very well, and arrived when the seller said it would. I love it and it's fun to play. If your considering a guitar I would recommend it.

        Bought this as Christmas present for little brother. I own 3 gibby LPsand wasn't expecting much. Fit ,finish tone and playability were big surprise. A real fun guitar. The Pups gave full range of tones and neck was a dream. Not a lot of ginger bread but certaintly not a ' beginner' guitar. Could easily use on stage.

          Comments about Epiphone Les Paul 100 Electric Guitar:

          You will be well pleased with this instrument. I have had it for several years now and it stays in tune when stored. I got if for my daughter, but I grab it when playing to the radio instead of my Fender. Can't believe what I got for the price.

          It has a great sound (Good solid of bottom end, and good treble) and is awesome with a tube amp. If you are thinking of getting your first electric, a gift, or a Les Paul for the tone, this is a great value. It will bring you may years of enjoyment.
