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.

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 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!

Pretty Sweet For Price

By Zachisking!

from RR2 Arnprior, ON

This guitar is really good for the price. The amp sounds a lot louder than a 10 watt, and the guitar is light and easy to hold. The strap kinda stinks, but a new one is cheap anyway. Everything else is really good. Only drawback is that the guitar gets finger marks on it pretty easy, but you can just wipe it off.

Dead Frets!

By MoonCat

from Orange County, CA

I bought this Epiphone Les Paul, Jr. set for my 10-year-old. Cool set but the guitar had dead frets. Why should I pay for a brand new guitar to get new strings, etc.? I exchanged it for a new one...Dead frets on that one too. I won't buy another guitar without being able to play it first. Excellent customer service, though.

Buy this pack while you still can !!

By Daniel-_KNtA

from ALBION, NJ

I love this guitar pack !The Epiphone Les Paul Jr from this pack sounds as well as my Epiphone LPSpecial II .In my estimation ,the Epiphone 10 wattamp is alone worth $50 .The amp is more than adequate for a beginner like me .The Epiphone Les Paul Jr. is ,in my view ,a $150 guitar .The pitch pipe is a fine bonus item in this pack .The only negative aspect of this pack is the gig bag which is too small for the guitar .Please do not let that dissuade you from buying the set .

Great Guitar

By sabarwolf30

from Gilmer, TX

I really like this guitar. It's my first, and I've only been playing it for 2 months, but its been holding up pretty well. I took it apart just because I was bored one day, pretty simple set-up, but whatever works. I'm wanting to upgrade it with a new humbucker once I get some cash, but until then, its a great guitar. The amp is only 10 watts.. You really can't expect much from it, but it still delivers. I play it in a room with a concrete floor, and it punches.

BEST pack for the $$$

By Scotty3days

from NJ

First, keep these thoughts in mind while reading the BAD reviews... 1). its NOT a Gibson.. 2). its NOT even a Les Paul copy.. 3). Educate yourself & find out exactly what a Les Paul Jr. is BEFORE you trash it.. 4). its a 10 WATT AMP.... how LOUD do you expect it or need it to be ???................ OKAAAYYY..... THAT SAID -- FOR THIS PRICE, YOU CAN'T GO WRONG !!!! Its perfect for a beginner, or in my case, I wanted something I could leave at work with no concerns. I did have the problem of it NOT staying in tune... but it seems the strings are crap. I put on a fresh set of Boomers and problem solved. Stays in tune. The amp is perfect; for what it is , and the sound is decent. The guitar even sounds pretty good through better amps. Overall... for a PRACTICE pack, this thing is great !!
