i got this guitar not to long ago and as soon as i saw it i had to have, i tried alot of les pauls in the shop gibson aswell and i have to say this is better than some in there, the sound is excellent its got the sustain and bite if you want or you can have smooth soft tones, the finish looks spectacular with gold hardware, the neck is smooth and easy and everything is just perfect. GET THIS GUITAR!!!!!
I have owned two of these guitars, one the Heritage Cherry the other the Heritage Sunburst. I must say that both of these guitars did not disappoint me at all. Both were manufactured in Korea but by the sound they emitted it would be hard to tell they didn't come out of Nashville. I still own the Cherryburst and will keep it for a LONG time. I do plan to put a '57 Classic in the neck and a '57 Classic Plus in the bridge but there is no hurry for that. For the price I paid this is a very sweet sounding and playing guitar,glad I got another one.
This guitar with the price drop is the best deal Epiphone has going right now. Mine has a much more beautiful wood and finish than the one pictured in the ad. The pups have amazing sustain and deliver sweet overtones. The neck is the most comfortable of all my Les Pauls (9 so far). This model is made in China which kind of had me worried, but after careful inspection, the quality is top notch. It's a beautiful piece of work and the gorgeous blond mahogany body is absolutely stunning. I recently paid 1149 dollars for an epiphone elitist Standard made in Japan and I must say that this baby meets or exceeds the Japanese model at less than half the price. This is a limited edition so I recommend it even more as a collector's item. It plays like it was made for my hand and the binding and inlays of the custom are just beautiful. At this price I'd recommend it over every other Epiphone LP made at the present including the much more expensive elitist models. The stop bar tailpiece and the pickup covers of my elitist standard are turning a dull pewter color and although I must say that the elitist is a bit more beautiful( and I mean ONLY a bit) this guitar is a true showpiece. The flamed maple top in a natural finish is both unique and stunning to look at. The top is perfectly bookmatched and the contrast of the top and blonde body with the black and white binding give it a unique look. No more to be said. If you're looking for a quality Paul at a giveaway price, this is the way to go. Grab one quick.
I have owned this guitar for four years now. No breakdowns or problems at all. I have used it playing in bars,arenas and outdoor concerts. The finish really stands up and the guitar still looks as good as new. I replaced the pickups for Gibson 57 classics which really added to the overall sound. Nicer looks than a studio Gibson for less money.
I bought this Epiphone with reservations that it might not give the sustain and tone I was looking for. It did not dissapoint. It is a quality insturment with everything I was looking for. the neck seems to be exactly like the Gib LP I had. A friend with an original 59 LP came over and we played side by side with only a slight difference in sound quality. Certianly worth the price.
The guitar is a sheer work of art. The color is 5x better in person then what is show in the one picture. Mine came and was more of a yellowish depth color. Blew my mind away actually. Better then what I was expecting. Now for the sound! I was expecting good results but......well.... I was wrong...way wrong! The sound of this guitar is beautiful with wonderful highs and lovely lows. The pickups sound just like Gibson's! This guitar sounds and looks every single bit as good if not better then a actual Gibson! Trust me you'll love this guitar. Sheer beauty and astonishing sound! Be ready to be struck with amazement when purchasing this epiphone limited edition les paul custom plus.
Received this guitar not too long ago. It is amazing. Sounds great through all of my different amps. Just what I needed to get the fat Rock sounds of Punk I so desparately was searching for. Looks are amazing and classy. You will not be disappointed with this guitar. Do yourself a favor and buy this guitar.
Having played various guitars for the past 35 years, I have seen my share of quality and junk. I had an Epiphone 12 string acoustic that I played into the ground in the 70's and absolutely loved it. I had played a friend's Gibson LP studio a couple of times and like it a lot. I ordered the Limited LP Custom from epiphone due to the success I had with my 12 string and was not disappointed. The out of the box setup was perfect needing no mods. The finish was gorgeous as well as the gold tuners and pickups. I was very surprised with the tonal quality that a guitar of this price afforded. The action was very easy although I did find it a little difficult to play at the higher frets. All in all a very sound instrument and great value for the money.
The pictures given dont even come close to the color in person. The flamed maple top is simply "WOAH" in certain terms. Great eye catcher as well as ear catcher too. The gold covered pups sound "BEAUTIFUL" words cant describe! Exactly the sound I wanted but never had found till now. The neck, don't even get me started on that. Now I'm a very picky guy with guitar necks. And well the neck on this guitar is perfect, Super fast with good texture to it. The gold hardware with the black outline is so beautiful. This guitar is in the top most beautiful guitars ever category! The action is nice and low but not to low. The 3-way toggle switch worlds great too. So, if your looking for a great guitar on a some what low budget this is the guitar for you. I can say that I'll NEVER get rid of this guitar EVER. Besides changing strings, its perfect. Trust me. Do yourself a favor and please buy this guitar for you, your son, daughter,uncle,dad, etc... They will love it!!!
Been playing over 25 years,mostly fenders,had 1 paul in the late 80's.Been using tele hh for humbucking stuff. Have played other guy's pauls,and got the fever.Didn't want to dump 1-2 grand,so I thought I'd try this.Guitar is really a Les Paul!Not exactly like a Gibson,not quite as heavy but still has that mass, frets are not the low-wides, but within a 97-98% range, and that's close enough to save a grand.The tone is there,neck feels right,bridge pickup cuts, neck pickup can be buttery smooth,finish is good to be poly.Tuners are grovers,and pots feel good,so does switch.Guitar is good value for the money.
I looked at a lot of guitars at various dealers. I once Owned a Heritage H150 that I wanted to replace and could not find the ticket until i recieved this guitar via UPS. My friend has a Gibson LP from 59 that cost him over $5500 and he brought it over and we did a side by side into the same amp with the same settings. This Epiphone had almost (95%) the same sustain as the Gibson and nearly (98%) the same tone. This is hard to believe I knoww, but true. For the money, you can't get a better guitar I might add seymore duncans to squeeze that extra 2% tone. It is a great guitar even though the neck is two piece and the body is four piece. the sustain is there in spight of these charactistics.
I've had mine now for a month or so.The pick-ups are very adequate,action and intonation were good out of the box,I just put on fresh strings and plugged it up.Neck is typical les paul,sustain is certainly there.The Natural finish is more of a very light tan than the white in the advertisement,and is beautiful against the gold hardware.Pots are quiet,no scratches,switch wanted to pop a little at first,but cleared up after a few flicks.If you want sustain,thru-neck,and 2 humbuckers,along with understated looks,(what,no ghost flames?!)this is a great value.And yes,this is a solid Les Paul!
Had my LP for a year now and you'ld think it arrived yesterday. I'm still blown away when I hear it sounding exactly the same as it's rich cousin, the Gibson LP. My set up is very simple, I play it hooked up to a valve jr amp, and the Boss blues driver, and with it you get insane crunch or sweet syrupy goodness. If you have thousands to spend for a Gibson that's cool, but if you don't, believe me, the Epiphone is not a step down, it's just a less expensive choice that you will be very happy with.
