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!

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.

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul 100 Electric Guitar:

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.

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul 100 Electric Guitar:

    I have to admit, I was skeptical at first buying a "low end" instrument. But after picking up this guitar and just playing without being plugged in, I knew it would sound great with an amp. I was right. This guitar has a very warm, deep tone, but yet balanced with treble tone. I play though a Fender Mustang I, so I am able to play it with a "slew" of different sounds.

    The action was perfect right out of the box and needed no adjustment. I did, however, change the strings right off. Matter of fact, I ordered strings when I ordered the guitar "just in case" the strings didn't sound and feel to my preference.

    I also own a Mexican Fender Telecaster, so I am able to play one then the other. The quality of this Epi is right on par with the quality of my Fender, in my opinion. It also feels to be lighter.

    I have been playing guitar (mainly acoustic) for 13 years, and even though I am not a professional musician, I do consider myself to be and intermediate player. So if you are looking for an affordable Les Paul, this guitar is the one to choose.

    I would have given this guitar a 5 star rating, but I ordered a factory restock so the guitar came with a small scratch on the back of the neck, which I expected.

        Comments about Epiphone Les Paul 100 Electric Guitar:

        not what its hyped to be ..6 months earlier i bought a competitors l.p copy for much less..and used. with binding, sunburst finish-- covered pick ups etc. for half put new tuners and heavier strings she purrs like a wild cat feels great and sounds like what i call steel and glass (the lp sound.) so i says to myself, if this so called cheap copy that rhymes with (play thurser)sounds this good the epiphone from m.f. gotta sound better right ....Not... now side by side cant tell much difference.. and actually i like the sound from my used one better and it looks better.sounds better and feels better. the black gloss looks nice contrasted with the cream p.u rings and pick guard but i didnt buy it for looks alone .. the epi body is about 3/8 thinner,so i guess it is lighter but im from detroit bigger is better.. and no binding although i knew that.. the so called non rotating input feature is non existant in mine . loose from the git go. the action is so low i cant use e-flat tuning as i do on most of my axes. and after paying what i did im not gonna put another xxx into it for a set up ..... so like i said i think im gonna sell it sooner or later and stay with my used (play thurser)..ive read most reviews of this product and im confused ..but i bet most dont have a side by side guitars to compare ...

          Got this bad boy three days after I ordered it. It came well packaged. Pulled it out of the box. My God it was more beautiful than I expected! Inspected it, not a thing wrong with it. Tuned it up and started playing. Wow! It really growls out the lows and screams out the highs! I Love This Guitar! If you are interested in a Les Paul, you just found it. what a great deal! thanks Musicians Friend.

              Well, to start off, i have the epiphone Les Paul special and have no complaints on that guitar. I think this Les Paul 100 is the one step upgrade to the one i have. Epiphone makes very good products no matter what guitar they make. I like the sound and feel of them all. Good job and just as good as a gibson in my way of thinking.

              I've been playing music for close to 10 years now and picked up this guitar on a whim, I was very surprised with how good of a piece this is for how much I paid! Absolutely beautiful finish(I purchased the vintage sunburst). The pickups aren't too bad, sounds pretty good for a price this cheap. All in all, a great guitar if you're looking for something to practice, jam, or play small shows with.

                Just because it doesn't have Gibson on it doesn't mean that its not a great guitar! After some tuning and adjusting the saddles (only the High E and B had to be adjusted) it was near perfect. Wasn't particularly happy with the strings that came with it but hey, I can get the strings I want anyway. Great sound, very clear compared to anything else I've played in the same price range and even some that cost a good deal more.

                this guitar got robbed when, the beautiful wood grain in the advertising picture got painted over. the guitar I recieved looks like an animated clown verson of the beautiful picture that is advertised. My grandfather taught me not eat with my eyes. so I will play the guitar the same way. This little guitar is fine, with my eyes closed, I could be playing my Gibson.
