This guitar is absolutely amazing! The finish is amazing. The sustain lasts for years. The neck so smooth and fast. The only bad thing about the guitar is the stock pickups which don't have great enough tonal range but its nothing shelling out a couple more bucks and some elbow grease won't fix. I have played Gibsons before and the first thing I said was why waste the money on a Gibson Les Paul Custom when you can get pretty much the same thing through Epiphone at the a way lower price! To sum it all up this guitar is just about perfect!

This guitar breaks down about once a month. I bought this guitar about a year ago, thinking that gibsons and epiphones were the same quality, only the epiphone did not have the gibson name. Well I was sure wrong. Two months after I bought it, the frets went all out of wack and the people told me that the guitar needed to be sent back to epiphone to get a BRAND NEW NECK. I get a phone call two months later telling me that epiphone decided that my guitar was to badly broken and they would send me a brand new one. Ok I thought that my first one was just a fluke and the next one would be better. On this one, the jacks broke three times, I had to replace the switch as well. I keep all my guitars in a room in their cases, and I have a giant humidifier in there. There is no excuse to why I had to pay another five hundred dollars in repairs to fix this guitar. For the money that u are going to spend on this guitar, just buy the real thing. Please!

Epi Custom cherry burst

By Johncart-xzpyk

from Western Ma.

My EPI LP Custom came used with the Gibson 490/480 pickups and all Gibson electronics too. I use a modified Fender HR deluxe or a Mesa Boogie Maverick. This guitar is a R&R Demon! Sustains forever! Screams or weeps pure cream with a flip of switch. I had a 1968 Gibson version of the same model and I cant think of a differance that is worth the price variation...

A Great Guitar If Your Budget Is Low

By Darren-6E9Vl

from Harrington, DE

I had this guitar for a year now, and it is still the sound that I love, and not a bad guitar if you can't afford the real Gibson Les Paul. I've been a guitarist/musician for almost 19 years, and out of all the electrics I've owned, this one is decent.

Extremely Satisfied w/ Epiphones' LPC

By Ace Rocks

from El Paso

This is my 2nd Epiphone Les Paul Custom. I am not a professional but have been playing for almost 20 years, and I would definitely buy this guitar again. I would love to have the $3000 version but that much out of my pocket would just eat at me for the amount of playing I am able to do. I did change out the bridge pick up for a Burstbucker #3 which did improve the sound, but in all honesty the new Epiphone pick ups are pretty good. I do not plan on changing the neck pick up out because of their improvement in pick ups. I had also switched out my 1990s model for a DiMarzio Evolution which made a world of difference back then. Epiphone has definitely upgraded their pick ups since the 90s. The tuners have also improved being that my new one comes with Grovers. The finish is beautiful. I've had the guitar for over a year and the gold plating is still flawless. I had considered changing the gold plated parts out as well since my 1990s Custom did not hold on to the gold plating that well, but so far so good. I do understand that some of the specs may be metric as it was made overseas which may make swapping out for Gibson parts challenging. The only area in which I am more comfortable with my 1990s model is the fretboard. The fretboard on my 1990 model has more of an arch down the fretboard; which, for me, makes a more comfortable finger placement. I have owned a few very nice guitars from Yamaha to Charvel to Fender, but my Epiphones are still my preferred guitars.

Epiphone Les Paul Custom

By SlashWannabe-.K2nu

from New Zealand

This guitar is amazing! I had always wanted to own a Les Paul but never had the money for a Gibson and when I saw this in a beautiful Heritage Cherry Sunburst I had to give it a try. Great playabilty, fast neck, not to heavey, unless your not used to Les Pauls. It was a keeper. When I got it home I plugged it into my Marshall MG10CD and it screamed even thought the amp is small. Great tone. I'm going to change the pickups for Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pros though. And get a Orange Amp head and speaker. Then the line up will be complete. Great guitar to buy!!

Over all great guitar

I play all kinds of music but mostly hardcore/metal. This guitar holds drop c tuning great and the neck and bridge pick-ups can achieve any tone you want. If you play blues, classic rock, metal, or even country this guitar is the one for you. Not mention it's very affordable. I haven't had any problems yet and I've owned it a little over 2 years.

By EPIJ

from MERCED CAL

I bought one in January of 2007 and it blew me away. I always thought Epiphones where just want to be Gibson until I got the heritage cherry sunburst. It was the real deal it was light fast neck looked beautiful and sounded 10x better then any guitar I?ve played. I SAY GET ONE!

Great daily driver

By Ztarz

from Wichita ,Ks

I bought this guitar as a backup to my Gibson 59 reissue. It has become more or less my daily driver. Besides being drop dead gorgeous it has great tone regardless of which of my amps I plug into.Once I got it set up to my liking, (I get all my guitars set up, even the 59) it has played like a dream. I give this guitar a very strong endorsment for anyone who wants the Les Paul sound. Great value for the price.Plus the added bonus of keeping the hours down on my Gibson. If I could only have one electric guitar, I know I could be happy if this was it.
