I bought this guitar 2 years ago, used, The Antique Ivory finish was no longer available so I bought an older 1998 used Les Paul Custom in Antique Ivory. I really wanted that colour for one obvious reason. Its the Randy Rhoads Les Paul. I cant find Gibson versions of this let alone epiphone. I love the guitar to death, I find it plays like any other les paul, the only real difference is the guitar is muddy, but I am thinking this is due to cheaper pickups, I may eventually throw some EMGs in it only because im getting used to them from my Custom Jackson 24 fret Randy Rhoads guitar, I did find turning up the highs on my amp did help alot though for my Les Paul.The weight on this guitar is the same as a Gibson, I did a comparison at a shop recently. The only real difference between this and the gibson was the frets, on the gibson some of the frets were screwed up because of quality control (lack of) and my Epiphone has zero fret problems, you know why? Its built to spec. Their the same shape, same size, just a different headstock, and if you really want a gibson shaped headstock though, get an early 80's Epiphone, they have a Gibson shape headstock and everything, its pretty well the same guitar. In fact, I looked at the old pricing of the Gibson's from 1980, and then look at the price of an Epiphones now, The price was comparable, now you pay about 3 times the price for a gibson.

This guitar has to be the worst guitar for the price. when I bought it I thought it would be sweet, but a few days later I noticed that the frets on the side of the binding had some black stuff on them. The next week I noticed that the neck around the 20th fret looked like it had been dipped in bleach and was dried out and cracked. Don't get this guitar get an esp or an Ibanez insted.

Nice Guitar for the Price

By LRTX1

from Gainesville Fl

See all my reviews

The Epiphone Les Paul Custom Antique Ivory Electric Guitar is nice for th price. The color was a little more "yellowed" than I thought it would be. The action a little high but, definately playable, that I guess is a personal preference. I do have a buzz in the neck pick-up that is going to need some attention. The guitar sounds great, and feels good, with a little set-up I think it wil be amazing.

Epi Les Paul Custom

By WeepingGuitar

I just received this guitar and I love it. Finish is excellant sound is VG, Very nicely finished. overall it is a beautiful guitar. I have owned 3 Gibson Les Paul customs and this one beats all three of the others. I do have to agree the nech joint stuck out a little to far, but nothing I can't live with. Setup was VG, I did have to make a couple personal taste adjustments. String ht.

This guitar is INCREDIBLE!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

WOW! This is the most awesome guitar I own! Besides looking INCREDIBLE, it plays like a Gibson! Im not saying it is as valuable as a Gibson, but I am saying that if you put the name "Gibson" on the headstock, you would think you were playing a genuine Gibson guitar! Epiphone has really outdone itself on this one! The tone is great, & the action was set up right out of the box! Deep bass, beautiful mids, and perfect treble! If you are thinking of getting a Les Paul, but dont want to drain your bank account, BUY THIS GUITAR!

This Guitar was not set up, There were buzzes all over the neck and the action was really high considering the neck was straight. I was disappointed with it. Not sure, but I may have just gotten a bad one!

I love this guitar

By Frame1957

I have been a professional drummer for years but play guitar as a hobby. When I was looking for a guitar this one really stood out. I talked to several guitar players I know and they all said it was a great deal. When I got it, no one could believe the high level of quality! It was perfect right out of the box. This is the second Epiphone I've purchased and again, I'm not disappointed!

Great Les Paul.

By RRAlexEVH

This looks just like the one Randy Rhoads played, everything except the knobs and the arrows he had beside the knobs. The playability is awesome and it sounds great right out of the box, and it has grovers! For the price you cannot go wrong! It even looks nicer than Alpine White in my opinion. I was doubtful about the color from the pic, and let me tell you, the picture does not do the finish justice! It is beautiful, it is basically a Cream Custom. It plays great,sounds great, and for the price you cannot go wrong. Buy this one and make your own awesome riffs just like Randy Rhoads.

Verrry Nice Les Paul!!

By Zemo

from USA

See all my reviews

First let me say the guitar I received is flawless, absolutely gorgeous! The set-up was perfect right out of the box. However, I was extremely disappointed with the pickups at first; very muddy sounding compared to Ibaneze's I have been playing for years. But I have owned Les Paul's before and they have always been notorious for sounding a bit muddy, so I shouldn't have been surprised. Now that I've had some time on this Epi, I've found that the muddiness can be minimized with a decent multi-effects pedal and I'm getting some beautifully warm tones that my Ibaneze's just don't have. Absolutely Love this guitar!! Well worth it.

Sweeeeet!!!!!!!!!!

By Dash Riprock of The Sharkskins

from Philadelphia, Pa.

This guitar is sweet! The color is fantastic and VERY hard to find. I owned one of these back in 1999 and sold it (for some DUMB reason) 3 years later. I was sorry I did. They are available again so I got one and I will NEVER let it go! You can buy 5 of these for 1 Gibson LP. The quality is just as good in most cases. Remember..It's not whats on the headstock...it's the hands that make it ROCK! I have about 20 guitars and this is one of my favorites. I am a Surf guitarist and use Jazzmasters... but I "kick back" with this Les Paul on my downtime.

this is an epiphone?

By metaldrummin666

from Olean, New york

See all my reviews

This guitar is so amazing. When i took it out of the box i did my usual routine. took the strings off, put some slinky's on, set the action and intonation and im good to go. This thing is a monster. Although some might be suprised to hear this, i hate the binding. I have gibson studio's with no binding and i love the feel to them. the binding makes the neck a little wider and i dont like that. Anyways it wont stop me from playin this thing non stop. This thing sounds so good. the pickups are a little muddy but thats normal for a les paul. There is no words to describe the paint job. i love it. it just looks vintage beautiful job. If epiphone didn't put their label on this you'd swear it was a gibson its just that good. I got the deal of a lifetime for this baby and im glad i bought it. it wont be leaving me anytime soon. Love it good job epiphone

This thing rocks!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I love this Epi its beautiful! I had to adjust the bridge and get it set the way I like but after I did it it played just as good as my Gibson Les Paul Studio! The only thing I do not like about it is the pickups. The pick ups sound kinda dull but after I replaced the original pickups with some EMG pickups this thing sounds awesome and blows me away! I would defintely recomend this to anyone!

It is a great guitar...

By Maggot-yQ_7L

from Iowa

I baught this guitar and it sounds exellent. The only bad thing about it is the hardware is a piece of crap. I bought the guitar last May and within a week of playing it, it started cracking and chipping. I put it in the case repeatdely and still cracked for no reason. The first chip was when the UPS shipped it to me right after I baught it, behind the base of the guitar. After a week it cracked on the fretboard. The guitar has dents in it as well. Even if I had bumped it, it shouldn't leave a mark. One little bump and its there forever. I would say this guitar is only good to play at shows. Not a guitar that that would last, but is still good to perform with.

Great guitar!

By mreeve25

I have owned this guitar for about 3 weeks now, and could not be happier. I replaced the Alnico Classic Humbuckers with Seymour Duncan Blackouts, and this guitar actually sounds better than my LTD Truckster. Not as heavy I expected, very comfortable to play. A little hard to play the high notes, but with a good set up, can be worked past. I definately recommend getting one!

- Epiphone Custom Antique Ivory -

By HumbleHatchet

from Oregon

I have only had this guitar for one day now, but right out of the box I could tell it was meant to be played. As soon as the UPS brought the guitar to my door I opened the box and set it up. I was surprised how well it sounded. Beautiful high, low and middle tones; I didn?t feel the need to swap pickups. The finish looked nice, but it was not perfect. The binding could have been done a little better, but overall it was fine. Another thing that stuck out to me was the fret board. It played slow and seemed like it needed to be sanded. This is a great guitar for what you will pay. I was happy with mine, and with a little work I think this guitar will be able to compete with the best.

LP Custom Special Ed. Ivory

By AngusMangus

from Maine

See all my reviews

Ask me a question

Plays great, tone is awesome, love the color. First one I got must have been a blem, sent it back (reluctently (I loved the thing), and got another (this one is perfect). Still love my fender guitars but I must say this guitar is awesome. Deep bass tones, good mid's and great treble. No hassel with the return. I was a little hesitent ordering one on line you know (un-seen, not playing first), but it worked out great in the end.

Disappointing

By Jeremy-zT4dd

from Sacramento, CA

Epiphone LP Custom, Antique White. Out of the box, I noticed that the frets were in bad shape, and it looked as if the headstock finish had been touched up with a Sharpie. Plugged in, I found that it sounded weak and thin. I was very disappointed and sent it back the next day. Save your money and get a Gibson LP Studio - the better sound & workmanship are worth it.

Dream Guitar

By theodas

from Jeffersonville, In.

See all my reviews

Years ago, a well known company had the slogan: "The quality goes in before the name goes on."This is absolutely true with this guitar. The name on the headstock may read Epiphone, but the quality, history and soul of this instrument is all Gibson.Right out of the box this guitar is ready to play just about any style you play. Play it next to the Gibson Les Paul, and the only difference you'll see is dollar signs.This thing notes like velvet butter and the Antique Ivory finish makes this beauty look every bit as good as it plays.This precision instrument is worth every dime you'll pay here, but don't wait long, there is a limited quantity and I honestly don't see how they can keep selling them at this price.Get one for yourself, you won't regret it.
