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.

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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
