I got this because I wanted something similar to George Harrison's red "Lucy' Les Paul without having to pay for a 'sweet cherry' Gibson (if one can be found) or to have one refinished - and am EXTREMELY satified with the color and finish in regard. Throw some cream plastic parts on this (make sure they are Epi parts as Gibson are different) and the guitar will look especially GREAT!However, I ended up having to order 2 because I couldn't get the neck to adjust on the first one. As luck would have it the finish on the first one was impecable, while the backside finish on the second one showed the lines of the 3 secitions that comprise the body. Oh well.I also decided to get this because it was a 'special edition' and I surmised it might get a better fret job (smoother edges) than I have felt on many Epi's - and I was correct, the edges were perfect and the 60's style neck feels like a 60's neck.The pickups IMHO have a very soft compressed attack, not as bright, complex, plucky or chime like as T-tops or real Pafs. But that's not necessarily bad if it appeals to you.I've never owned a LP and have only owned SG's ('61 Custom and '69 Standard). As soon as I picked this up it started evoking string pulls and riffs reminicent of the Eagles Hotel California. It's weird how different guitars bring our different styles and songs.I've tried $4000 Gibsons that to me had worse quality and playability. So for price this Epi seems like a great deal.
I just got this Les Paul Limited Edition, and it's beautiful! The Candy Apple Red is perfect with the gold hardware. The fretboard is very nicely finished. Quality control is evident throughout. I feel like that with a few adjustments and a quality set of strings, this axe will be my favorite for a long time.
I was a LP Custom player from the early 70's. I missed having one and got the opportunity to pick up this one and a '56 Gold Top. Both very smooth playing guitars with very different attitudes. Both look great and sound like you'd expect from a Les Paul. Outside of tweaking the intonation, the only mod I made to the red one, was swapping the gold hi-hats with black Gibson speed knobs. Just looked better to me. Excellent choice for all styles, that won't break the piggy bank.
I got this guitar for Christmas! i picked it out because of that amazing finish! I got it in and couldn't beleive that it looked and sounded so incredible the action,Pickups,tone, the list goes on! All i can say is that this is not your ordinary EPI it plays and feels like a Gibson!
Just got my Limited Edition Candy Apple Red LP Standard with gold hardware and it is flawless! The action, intonation, and finish are flawless. The neck is fast and the pickups sound great through my Marshall. I was looking for a guitar to play the Allman Brothers leads, and this guitar nails it. This is my first Les Paul, and it's got a totally different feel from my Strat, 335, and Flying V. One thing I've learned from the gold hardware on my Korina Flying V: don't polish it, or you'll end up with nothing left of the gold finish.
Its an EPI, and its a great one, the candy apple red is deep and sopping wet in the finish, it will blind you with its own powerful glare, the sustain on this one holds you in captivity, the tone is typical les paul in every way, this is a well put together axe, someone did there homework here, as with any instrument there is always room for improvment, thus the 4.5 rating, but to be honest, this is mint, candy apple red with gold hardware, great pickups, binding and fret is flawless,fingerboard is perfect,smooth as a babys behidn all over,fast shipping, triple packaging, in my humble opinion, its just playable, so if you will excuse me, I am going to do just that, go enjoy my toy. I would pay more for this after having played it, buy it....Many will say its just a fancy standard, and they are correct, and thats what makes this one so sweet.
The pictures of this guitar do not even come close. When I opened the box yesterday my jaw hit the floor, the finish is an amazing metallic flake red and the gold hardware really sets it off. This is my first guitar in 15 years, and I look forward to spending hours and hours learning to play with this Les Paul. It sounds amazing, even in my newbie hands. A total joy to play.
This guitar will blow your mind!!! It sounds and feels like a Gibson!!!
