I'd been looking at Epi Les Paul's for quite awhile, always asking the question of the dudes in the music store, "what's the difference between the Epi's and the Gibson's?" Machine-made Epi's with somewhat inferior pickups against hand-made Gibson's just wasn't enough to convince me the Gibson's are worth $1600-$1800 more. Well, this guitar exceeds my expectations. Definitely needed a set-up, out of the box, but I would do that to any new guitar. Gotta get it dialed in for the strings you play, etc. So, after set-up, plays great. Finish is fantastic, and I love the painted neck, very slim and fast. The scale is a bit shorter than my 80's Stratocaster, which takes some getting used to. To sum up, great value for a simple, no nonsense working axe. Tell the Gibson snobs to grow up, when they give you a hard time about playing an Epi.
Alright, heres the deal. This guitar is off the chain. The guitar plays so nicely. Its got the perfect neck, its not too thick, not to thin. Its A LOT more comfortable to play then most other les pauls. and it feels so nice with a strap because its HEAVY. i dont know if thats a good or bad thing for you guys, but i like to move around a lot and i want a guitar that stays still on the strap, and thats what this guitar does.
..it was poorly set up out of the box. Eventually it was properly setup by a technician. Look-wise the guitar is beautiful, but bare in mind that the guitar you see in the picture is quite different from the one you will get. Neck and body are painted black, perhaps to hide the unatractive appearence of cheap wood. The gold finish is quite amazing though. Tuners are chromed! Sound-wise, well, it's an epi and they sound great, expect that natural resonance characteristic of an LP. I've never played a Gibson LP so I could never tell the difference but I've always been pleased with the sound quality Epi's provide. In conclusion it's just an LP Standard so the extra $100+ you will be pay are for the gold finish. Is it worth it?..you decide.
First, this does not have the vintage P90's that someone mentions in their review. They're chrome humbuckers but plenty sweet sounding when cranked up. I love the sustain, the solid mahogany really holds the tone no matter where you play on the neck. The finish on this guitar is really sharp. I was thoroughly surprised when I opened it. Two buddies have seen it and both agree, this thing has "the look". I love the neck, it's slim compared to some other Les Pauls I've played. The workmanship is excellent for the price and I'm impressed with the playability right out of the box. A sweet new guitar for my collection and a lot of fun to play... can't wait to try it with all my amps.
The P-90's scream & snarl & hum just like they're supposed to, the finish is beautiful, frets & neck smooooth like buttah. I can finally leave my '67 LP Custom it's case to accrue and abuse this baby, they compare pretty closely but one's worth $5K+ the other under $600!
I knew I had to have this guitar the moment I saw it in the catalog. It looks almost exactly like the Gibson 1957 reissue but costs about two grand less. It played perfect right out of the box. My only slight complaint is that it doesn't actually come with the green Kluson tuners that it's pictured with. It comes with Grovers. Some may like this better but I think the Kluson tuners would add to the vintage vibe of this guitar. Other than that, an amazing guitar. I would recommend it to anyone who loves great tone.
When I saw this guitar in the new catalog it was love at first sight! It cries, it sings, when you want it to, it screams. I love it! Yeah, I know that the gold top cost extra; have you ever seen a good blonde that didn't? Only a couple of very minor flaws in the paint that most people wouldn't catch and the fact that the picture ine the catalog featured the old Kluson style tuners when it actually came with the Grover style are all that affected my rating. If I had it todo over again, well---I can't get enough of your love.
The gold finish on this guitar is not perfectly consistent or kept exactly where is should be (small bits on binding and neck), but you can barely notice the imperfections, and overall the guitar looks great. The back is dark, which I like because I changed all the accessories to black. Speaking of which, the pickguard and backplates are a reddish creme while the rings, washer, and knob are greenish creme. I think two difference looks quite bad, but gibson accessories (except backplates) fit...barely. The tuners are chrome grovers. The The les paul feel and sound are outstanding. I recommend this guitar for the price, but I would also recommend an accessories change.
