You can't go wrong with a Junior to start out with. I bought this for my son, it's a little too big for an 11 year old. I'll be getting him the LP express. I really wish it had a P-90 like the original, it would have bumped it up a couple of notches to a 9 just on value alone. Still I'll be keeping it untill he gets a little older and substituting the Pick Up for a P-90.
It's a Junior, still you get a tone & a volume. Honestly does the tone ever roll off? Still it does have a humbucker pickup for more powerful styles, but I would have preferred a P-90 pickup in keeping with traditional Les Paul Jr.s. But for the beginner, which this is clearly aimed at, it is an inexpensive start into the Epi/Gibson family and a geat tool to learn on. The action is set low, the neck is smooth and it plays with no frett buzz. A real simple good quality guitar that's great to learn on. A begginer doesn't need to be confused with a lot of features, just learning his chops is enough stress.
It's an Epi, great bang for the buck. Clean is OK, the tone isn't the greatest but I suspect the cheap Pick-Up is killing a lot of the tone (a P-90 would have made more sense). Still for a beginner it's a great guitar to start with good sustain and potential to tinker & upgrade. Remember LP juniors started out as Gibson's affordable student model. Now a New Gibson Junior will cost you a pretty penny & a vintage Jr... well your talking a lot, so much for affordability. The one I got was the Sunburst Model and the finish is way above what you would expect at this price point. A few things needed tightening and I had to switch out the nasty fishing rod strings it came with for some Ernie Ball Super Slinkys. But it's when the gain & overdrive are distorting this little beast that it really comes into it's own. The Amp is okay to start with, but you'll be trying out the Marshalls & Orange Amps soon enough.
For what you pay you get a real Epi Les Paul Jr. (without a P-90) plus starter Amp & cord. Everything you need to start playing rock is here, only things missing are a good comfortable strap, picks and practicing your chops. The Amp is okay, it's got a distortion button. We use Garageband on the Macs mostly, so the Amp wasn't really a factor.

I got this guitar for two reasons. I wanted to have a humbucker guitar, and I wanted to see what the lower quality epiphones could offer. Let me start off by saying they don't. None of the accsesories are any good. The frets are absolutey horrible. My high E string actually sticks under the frets sometimes. The black looks nice, but you will need to take care of it because dings, scratches, and especially fingerprints show on this guitar a lot. If you are looking to getting your first guitar, and you know you will play for a while don't get this. I would suggest one of the fender standards, or the Gibson Melody Maker. These guitars sound nice, unlike this one. They are also easier to play and you will be able to use them if you ever needed to do a gig. All in all this is a good package for a beginner. However if you know you're going to play for more then a year you're going to want to get something better.

Good for a Beginner

By Anonymous

This is a preety good guitar, but but it only has one humbucker, so it lacks a little uumph. It's great for begginers. It has good sound with and has a very low price- its a good buy

Amazing package!!!

By Guitarkid-iJgH-

from Connecticut

Ok, you have to be crazy not to buy this. I had it for a few weeks now and it sounds really nice! This guitar is great for a beginner because its easy to hold, sounds great, and is affordable. Another thing is the Amp sounds a lot louder and better than a 10 Watt. Plus its easy to learn on because I'm already prety great at it just after about 3 weeks since the sound makes it feel like your good. If your a beginner and your looking for your first guitar buy this while you still can. The only disadvantage is that if you pick 2-5 days for shipping, it won't come until the fifth day. Every day after I ordered this I thought it would come that day and I was disappointed when I got it on the fifth day but all in all, its worth it.

good guitar the rest is crap

By DussinC

from mebane nc

i just bought this kit and the guitar is good but the strings should be changed and the amp is ok but you should upgrade and the rest of the stuff like the strap and cords are good over all its good for starters and intermediate guiter players but once you get really good you will probly want to upgrade

Just a starter

By Eddie M.

from staten island, NY

Got it for my son, it's allright. Always going out of tune. A little heavy for him . He is 6 years old. Don't expect much. It's a Cheap starter kit in case your child decides he doesn't want to play the guitar any more you won't lose much. In plain words just a starter guitar.

Good for the price!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

The guitar, regardless of price isn't bad. However the pickups suck and the clean is terrible. But the distortion is good and it rivals dist. of guitars 500 bucks more. Also I have not had problems with anything breaking and the knobs keep it in tune real nice. If you are strapped for cash you should get it!

NOT A JUNIOR

By Tod-KQPp3

from Lake Worth, FL

Ok, for those who dont know, a Les Paul Junior doesnt mean its a normal LP for beginners or children, and the fact that a LP Junior has one pickup is not a way to make the guitar cheaper. Gibson invented the LP Junior with one pickup (usually a dog-eared p-90 or p-100) and thats the way it is. But Epiphone just took their normal LP and removed a pickup from it. This guitar is a good beginner guitar, its got an alright tone, and the action could be worse (take squier for example). But this guitar is not a LP Junior, no matter what they write in the description. This is a good guitar to get, but just make sure you know what youre getting.

Epiphone Les Paul

By ThatAtheistKid

from Oceanside, CA

I really enjoy this guitar, this is my first and I feel it was possibly the best desision I could make... The amp is cool, I can take it from my room to the computer room easily. I also like the distortion on the amp, it's really cool from what I can tell, this is my first experience with an electric guitar but from what I know this is a really good desision to make.
