This is my first online ordering experience with a guitar but I am so happy with it. I opened the box and was blown away with the beauty and craftsmanship of this guitar. Online pictures do not do it justice.
I picked the guitar up, tuned it, plugged it into a small peavey practice amp and started playing. The sounds were awesome and the guitar felt amazing and there was no fret buzz. The Humbucker/Single Coil pickup controls are great for a variety of sounds.
I am extremely happy with this purchase. I just don't want to set this thing down. It is amazing. I used to have a Gibson Les Paul Studio and this guitar is just as good or better. I will be playing guitar a lot more now.
The only problem with the online ordering is the 3 or 4 days I had to wait. It was killing me. I was like a kid waiting for Christmas morning.
I got it and now I am a Very Happy Customer...and it was worth the wait.

This is a beautiful looking guitar with a 60s profile D shape neck. The pickups are hot and super bright. The neck is about the same as a bridge pickup in a lot of Gibsons. But they sound great, especially if you roll the tone off a bit. The guitar was in poor shape as far as setup when I received it. The frets were atrocious, the literally felt like there was sand glued to them, they also needed to levelled. Intonation was out on a few strings and out so far on the G string that I have wound it back as far as it will go and it's still out. Also the nut was high, I ended up replacing it with a tusq. The action was fairly high when the guitar arrived and not able to be lowered as it buzzed out pretty bad when I did so, so obviously they'd noticed this and just wound it up until it stopped buzzing, not good.
All in all, a good guitar, I do love to play it, but expect to encounter some setup issues.

      Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard PlusTop Pro Electric Guitar:

      Wow is all I can say. I;ve played$ 3500 Gibsons and they left me flat. This Epi is awesome. I love the vintage sunburst. It is even better that expected. The Pro bucker pickups are simply wonderful. Coil splitting that actually works great. I cant find a bad setting anywhere. I've always bought Fender because of the neck profile. This slim taper neck is great. Epi has made me a believer. I bought a blem and I can barely find the blem. Thanks Musicians Friend. You have stepped up in delivery,quality,and price.

        I guess I'm just unlucky. This guitar was sent to me with a broken selector switch. That was a real let down because the guitar was beautiful. It felt relatively good in my hands and sounded good. I would have exchanged it but this is the second Epi Les Paul that was shipped to me with fatal issues. Gonna save up some more and go with a Gibson and hope for better results.

                Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard PlusTop Pro Electric Guitar:

                No long winded speech, this EPI Les Paul series is now built by Samick, which is a good thing, the craftsmanship in Indonesia now compares with the best in Asia! I got the gorgeous Wine Red Flametop and it is stunning, not just trying to impress, but to me it is the best finish offered!
                What really puts the Pro/Plus Les Paul guitar ahead of the pack is the new ProBucker pickups, NO need to change these guys out, the tone, the crunch and sustain; the balance from neck to bridge is amazing, and, the split coil voices are very good too, kinda Straty, play with it after you buy one, just do it! Catch a Sale!
