    I won't bother repeating too much what others have said about the excellent quality of this guitar, both in terms of tone and in terms of craftsmanship. For the price, it can't be beaten and will not disappoint. However, it is still no Gibson. Tonally I'm sure it will compete well with a true Les Paul when plugged into a good amp, however the purist will be disappointed to find that the back of the body is a thin mahogany veneer. This cleverly conceals the fact that the body and neck are made of multiple random off-cuts of mahogany which would never find their way into a Gibson. My particular guitar (body and neck) is made of at least 6 off-cuts of mahogany, not including the split veneer on the back, the split maple cover, and the fretboard. This comes to at least 11 pieces of wood going into my guitar. With that many bits of wood, that much glue, and that many seams, you do want to be sure you're not leaving this out in the sun too long, or leaving it in a really cold garage for long periods of time. It may not stand up to the test of time like a more expensive guitar. So you're not exactly getting a bargain - you're getting exactly what you pay for. This detail seems to have evaded detection in other reviews and may prompt some to pay the full price for a Gibson which is almost guaranteed to be made of top-quality wood.

    That being said, a discerning guitarist ought to test a few of these guitars before making a purchase, thereby avoiding bodies with unintended 'dead-spots'. If you're not really sure if you'd be able to spot a dud, then to be brutally honest this particular issue won't be bothering you that much anyway. Not to sound too patronizing, but you could save yourself some trouble (and money) and just get an even cheaper guitar. It is a sad fact of life that many guitarists spend ungodly amounts of money for instruments and equipment that they can never actually appreciate.

    I am a lefty and unfortunately had no real choice per avoiding 'duds' - I was forced to buy the only one in the shop, but fortunately it plays brilliantly. I have always been searching for the Paul Kossoff tone and after playing the solo to 'All Right Now' (which really brings out the best in a good guitar/amp combination as it occupies a lot of space along the fretboard and requires a lot of sustain from the body) found the guitar to respond perfectly. I am no virtuoso but it adequately reflects my command of the guitar.

    Other lefties beware - as with most left-handed guitars, the volume and tone nobs have been wired backwards by idiots and '0' is in fact full volume/tone, while '10' is the opposite. I've rewired all my previous guitars to get around this, but owing to the fact that the push/pull pots have small circuit boards attached, and the entire guitar actually has a small and quite intricate wiring harness, fixing this problem is not going to be easy for an amateur electrician (such as myself). I've wired my own push-pull pots with coil-splitting humbuckers but none quite as advanced as this.

    I am surprised to see reviewers noting poor build quality. This is a rather poorly educated comment and should be ignored, in my opinion. Remember that you are not buying a Gibson - you are going for the budget brand and you get what you pay for. It needs to be said that Epiphone's build quality has improved markedly over the years. I have an old SG G-400 I bought years ago and every single component of the Les Paul Standard is superior - from the tuners on the neck and the tuners on the bridge, to the frets, to the pick-ups, etc. Again, as I said, this guitar is worth every penny. You cannot find a guitar (new) for this money, of this quality and with this many good features. Just be weary of 'duds' and if you're a lefty, expect mild but bearable buggeration. I hope this helps people make a more informed decision.

    I was excited, but then disappointed by the guitar. Excited as the Honey Burst maple top is beautiful. Not so excited as the 'solid' parts, back and head stock had a shop class look to it. It appeared pieces seemingly glued in (didn't match wood)to make up the area. Fret work overall was terrible, string felt like bending on sand paper, very rough, poor quality frets. Tone, sound very good, new style pickups were good. Sent mine back for a Gretsch Pro Jet where I know quality will be up to what it should be.

          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.

                Most new guitars require set up when ordered from any store as the temp and weather dramatically effects wood. IF you do not have your guitar set up properly you have now idea of the capabilities the guitar has to offer. Once setup the guitar played as well as my Gibsons. I do not like the split coil offerings. I replaced the pickups and it was a bear to do as the guitar has quick disconnects and a circuit board. I will replace the wiring like an original LP from the 60's. The guitar is of excellant quality. A small neck adjustment and string change would be all thats needed for this to sound like a Gibson LP for an experienced player. I actually prefer this over many other Gibson's I have played except for two that are my favorites. An absolutely pro grade guitar for a extremely low price.I bought it as a backup to gig with but I will also record with this one as it is that good. I replaced the stock pickups with a Duncan '59 (Neck) and a 59' hybrid (bridge).I just don't see a better value out there. For new players,if you learn to play and learn how to adjust your amp then this guitar will certainly help you along the way. 5 stars all the way.

                      I've had this guitar for a few years now and it's still my favorite guitar! When I got it the first thing I did was replace the pickups with signature Slash pickups, and the sound is way better. This guitar with a few upgrades plays and sounds like a way more expensive guitar. If you wanna see this guitar in action check out my guitar covers on YouTube! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MCJVaHmfdJM&list=TLssK060i4DXfX33DEtcV4NbllbYuzQlmn

                        I've always liked Epi guitars.I've played models made in Korea through the current Indonesia made guitars and they have all been pretty consistent.The neck profiles are always a little different. My model has a slightly thicker round c shape than other neck shapes I've encountered recently. So it's a good thing. The stock pickups are the best I've heard of any Epi in the past 30 years. I bought the guitar used and it was a mess. It needed new strings and a set up. Everything else was in good working order

                        It looks FANTASTIC, but this guitar was made for playing, not a freakin' museum.
                        First I had file down the sides of the frets as they were very sharp and rough then I took a nail buffer sponge to smooth out and polish the frets to a chrome finish.
                        The pick-ups and electronics are 'decent' but a definite disappointment. I installed some Duncan Distortion pups and kept all the same electronics- BIG MISTAKE as the sound only got muffled and faded. I finally got an awesome sound once I changed the toggle switch, input jack, volume pods, and all the electronics and wiring. I also decided to protect my new investment with a HARD PLASTIC case that will actually protect and not just look nice.
                        Yeah, the neck and body are composed of several pieces of wood that have been glued together but at least it looks like they did a good job of gluing them. The paint and gloss is outstanding.
                        Even with these drawbacks I still think it's worth it to get an Epi and upgrade for a few hundred as opposed to spreading a few thousand for a Gib. You get a good sense of satisfaction out of doing these upgrades yourself.

                        I changed the PUPs to SDs Jazz & JB, and put fatter strings on, and this axe rocks as good as it looks?
