I got this for cheap on the stupid deal of the day. I had an Epi Casino and was really impressed with it so I took a chance. I've always wanted a cherry red Les Paul and wanted one with a Bigsby and this provided both.I immediately compared this to my Gibson Les Paul Standard. The play and feel is very close. I changed strings to 09's and got the action down to .04" at the 12th fret so all was good.It doesn't feel as heavy as my Gibson but has good sustain anyway. I love it and am very glad to have it.
I've bought and sold 3 Epiphone LP's. Always liked the look but they have been disappointing, dead-sounding guitars. This one has changed my opinion. The guitar feels very "alive", the neck and body resonate in your hands. Plugged in, the guitar sounds crisp and clean through my Vox AD50VT. The pickups are very articulate and can cover tones from rockabilly to Beatles jangle. Setup required only adjusting the bridge for lower action to my liking. Finsh is perfect, a 335 transparent red over mpale and mahogany. Finish is flawless. The bigsby adds a nice shimmery vibrato and a great vintage look. Get one of these, it is a great guitar.
I have about 40 guitars and have purchased a few EPI guitars in the last year. I am tired of paying 2-3 grand for "premium" guitars when these new EPI models are so darn good. I hope they do not raise the price and keep the the quality high.
So I played this, and I loved it. Thinking bout getting it. I wailed on this for 30 minutes and it was barely out of tune. I mean wailed. It sounded very rich in distortion, but clean is alright. Overall good guitar.
I own several Les Paul's - Gibson & Epiphone - and lately I've been itching for a Bigsby equipped Les Paul or SG ; mostly for the cool factor. One day I came accross the Epiphone Les Paul Trans Red and I thought I would give it a try. I'll tell you , this baby does not disappoint ! It is an awesome guitar - virtually impossible to tell apart from a Gibson ( especially when you are playing it )! Beautiful finish, nice neck, heavy ! Pick-ups are real nice too. I expected I would have to replace the stock pick-ups with something better but to my surprise these stock units are very good. The Epiphone humbuckers sound different enough from other manufacturers pick-ups to give this guitar a voice of it's own. All in all a very well rendered instrument that could easily sell for alot more ( glad it doesn't ). Do yourself a favor - check it out and see for yourself. And no, I don't work for Epiphone !
The first thing I thought to myself when I saw this guitar is wow. It may not look amazing over the internet but in person this is a beautiful guitar! I knew as soon as I saw it at my local music store that I had to have it! The pickups are of decent quality for an Epiphone, when you play the guitar through an amp you can really hear the sound of the guitar's uniqueness. I gave it a 4.0 in Quality because my bridge pickup wasn't shielded correctly and produced a "Squeal" whenever I palm muted. That being said all it took was a trip to my local guitar repairman and it's as good as new! This guitar will not disappoint!
