For a comparison, see my review of my new Gretsch G5435 Electromatic Pro Jet Electric under the nickname ETHELTHEFROG.
I decided to order three guitars from MF, to see if any of them would significantly add tonal or playability possibilities to my current collection: A '78 Gibson V2, a '95 Fender Strat (Japanese), '06 Fender Tele (Mexican), and an 2010 Epiphone SG (Chinese).
The three new guitars were an Epiphone Les Paul, Epiphone ES-339, and Gretsch G5435 Electromatic Pro Jet. I loved the look of Gibson LP cherry sunburst and goldtops, but I can't justify the expense of buying one; I'm just not that good. I want guitars that sound good and look good on stage, but that I won't have a heart attack over if they are stolen or damaged, which happens at gigs. Would the new guitars be a value or disappointment? Answer: Value, baby! I'm keeping all three.
The Les Paul's setup was excellent right out of the box. The flamed Heritage Cherry Sunburst looks great - the image on the Musician's Friend webpage is not of a flamed top (see my pic attached.) Gold/flame colored volume and tone pots and pickup selector switch, cream binding, pick guard and PU frames, as well as chrome hardware and PUs, all have that great vintage look.
I have read other reviews that downplay the versatility of the coil tap feature. Maybe those cats only like distortion, and turn all the tone and volume up to full, but whether I was going for cleaner sounds or various overdriven sounds, I could get lots of tone combos at different volumes and tone settings, by having the bridge and neck at single coil, or the bridge at single and neck at humbucker, or vice versa.
The key is to turn the amp up and then you have more range with the volume and tone controls. I was getting excellent natural overdrive, warmth and sustain with my Fender 40W Hot Rod with single 12", as well as nice clean tones, all depending on the volume level on the guitar's controls.
Hardware, feel, fit and finish: I had no fret buzz problem as some reviewers noted. I think the Gibson factory setup was excellent on this guitar; Grover tuners feel solid; guitar held tune even with lots of string bending and vigorous strumming.
There was a tiny bit of excess plastic and a rough edge on the narrow end of the pick guard where it meets the body (where no one would notice) but i filed it off with an emory board. Three of the control pots seem to be so slightly off-level one wouldn't notice it visually, only when you turn them, but this does not affect sound or performance. These are things that would not happen on a much more expensive Gibson, but I can deal with these minor flaws, with a bargain Epiphone in which the overall look, feel, and sound are great.
Bottom line: If I only had to buy one (the Gretsch G5435 Electromatic Pro Jet Electric or Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Top Pro) it would be a hard choice. The Gretsch "feels" slightly higher quality somehow - I can't say just why - I have quickly learned to like the single tone, double pick-up volume and separate master volume control set-up - and it costs less.
However, the Les Paul's pickups, whether humbucking or in single coil, or in combos, produces sounds the Gretsch can't, while the Les Paul can't replicate the Filtertron sound. They both can range from a wide variety of clean to rough tones, so it would come down to what control set-up, sounds, and versatility you like best. Thank goodness I could afford to keep BOTH, plus the Epiphone ES-339 (see my separate review under nickname ETHELTHEFROG.)
GREAT value! Thanks, Musician's Friend!

My friends, I have written many reviews for guitars the past 10 years, and they all have been rated most helpful by the readers. Every single one, even when I reviewed a ukulele. I told in every detail the information that truly mattered to potential buyers, honestly, as I do now, here. Me? I have played, composed thousands of pieces of music, and collected serious guitars over 30 years. I have studied this site daily for a decade and watched religiously the developments and alterations made within every brand...and I have either owned or else played nearly everything. Let me tell you what I see the trend is, and you decide what to do, for if you have not been paying attention or are new to the scene, you won't appreciate the changes, all for the worst market-wide, and I am sick of sitting in silence after so many exhaustively-written compliments. Epiphone was arguably the best, most versatile, and best made mid-grade instrument out there a decade ago. Its no weight-relief Les Pauls with their near full-body, gloriously showcased mahogany covering over three-quarters of the body, their deeply carved tops that magically made up and melted into bursts, were far more stunning than any Les Paul Gibson put out. Epi's SG-400 was better, in my estimation, than Gibson's SG Standard. PRS too, with its exquisite tops, put your eye out. Today, PRS has gone solid color, with only 4 of its 26 lowest priced models not being a tribute model to someone of no musical consequence--meaning virtually nothing for everybody and nobody. Epiphone's best Les Paul, once a killer from '05 to '10, are now half the weight, made of lesser grade wood, covered by cheap satins and boring solids and yawn-engendering bursts (with barely cat scratch tops if you're lucky) to cover that wood (and less wood, in the end), and Gibson imitated Burstbuckers to fool one into thinking loudness beats quality material, craftsmanship, and fine playability, playability being the greatest casualty in this overall downward trend. Why do this? So Gibson could introduce its bare-bones "Junior" line, which is an abomination of noodle playability. Epiphone is now permanently destroyed and Gibson has given us junk while skyrocketing its real instruments in price. The true Epi is gone baby gone. Look elsewhere, and I mean look! Gibson heartbreakingly killed a classic brand for nothing, disgraced itself with sub-products, and has outright cheated the hope-filled player without conscience. Cheap wood-grades, thinner maple tops with paint disguises, the egregious use of insubstantial wood thickness so as to mis-angle the neck right to the body to create decent playability lest the set neck crack under truss rod pressure; plus coil splits, mini-tuners, pointless cosmetics—all "who-cares?" gimmicks--embody the trend. Where have our guitars gone? Has no one any pride or veracity left?

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard PlusTop Pro Electric Guitar:

I've had my guitar for a week now and since then I've gone through a couple of packs of strings, a couple dozen picks, and had the cops come out three times.

My only complaint is that it sat on a UPS truck all afternoon in the Florida sun. When I opened the box the guitar was so hot I could light a cigarette off of it. Upon visual inspection of the guitar I noticed that one of the volume controls was crooked. I thought one of the posts were bent, but it wasn't. I fixed it no problem with a screwdriver and a pair of pliers. ;) The pick guard was a little scratched up. It looked like it was either used or someone needs more practice with a dermal tool. That's why I give it four stars.

Other than that I just love this guitar and give it five stars.

I was a little nervous about ordering online but it came packed in a box that was done really well, and the free cardboard case that it came in (which was a plus) was packed nicely too.

After I got a good look at her and she cooled down a bit I decided to heat her up again. I tuned her up then plugged her in, and the sweet sounds that were coming from my amp would have made Mr. Lynyrd Skynyrd proud. The setup was perfect right out of the box. (Good job #24) The guitar has a nice deep rich tone, and as Mr. Epiphone says: "Miles of sustain." (68 miles to be exact.)

I really like the coil tapping feature too. I can go from hammering out some Zeppelin to jamming with Stevie Ray without it sounding to meaty. It's like having two guitars in one that you only need to buy one case for, because frankly the free cardboard cases don't last that long. Especially if your dog makes a bed out of it.

All in all I am very happy with my purchase from Musicians Friend. The hardest part was choosing which color to get... After about five excruciating minutes I decided on the Honey Burst. The guitar is everything I expected and more. I enjoy looking at it as much as I do playing it…and I've been playing it a lot. (hence the blisters on me fingers.)

      Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard PlusTop Pro Electric Guitar:

      To start off let me just say that Epiphone is one of my favorite companies. Not only do they make cheaper models of guitars we all love, but they keep quality within the makings. This guitar was one I had been eyeing for a long time and when I finally was able to get it I was not disappointed at all. It was already set up to how I prefer and all I had to do to be ready to play was to tune it. The sound from the pro-buckers is a very rich deep tone. Since this is also the pro model it had the coil tapping ability. This giving it a single coil sound while retaining the resonance of the Les Paul body and a lower-end bassy sound. This guitar is worth every penny.

      As far as I'm concerned,for what it cost,it plays just as good as a Gibson LP,& for alot less. Works for me.

            Absolutly fantastic guitar at any price.I started playing guitar in the 60's so I have seen how guitars have evolved. Back in the day a guitar of this quality at this price is not available.I have played most all of them and owned many and very few can compare to the Les Paul.The finish on mine is perfect and i have pulled Gibsons off the wall with les than perfect finishes.To me the Epiphone sounds very mush like the Gibson. The neck is not sticky like some Gibsons i have tried, the action is good, fret board, nice, it stay in tune. I have the desert burst which i like because the edges are not so dark to hide the great flame top. Don't hesitate to give it a try.

              This arrived well packaged, in three boxes, no damage at all. I got the ocean burst and I like it. My first Les Paul, so I can't say too much about the electronics and pickups, except that I like the sound. The set up was good, but the action was a little high. After a few minor adjustments, it plays just fine, for me. Intonation good, no fret buzz. I love it!

                I purchased the Ocean Burst blue and I love it, it was a Birthday present to myself. I was looking for a blue Les Paul and MF had Ocean Blue color only on sale for 100.00 off so it was a sign from the Universe. Right out of the box I tuned it and it was good to go. I plugged it in and it sounds great split coils and all.
