Many people bash Epiphone guitars because "It ain't a Gibson". Well if it was a Gibson, it's name would be on the headstock, right? All opinions aside, the particular model I received very much delighted me. Tuning keys were actual Grovers, installed very cleanly, with nothing loose or warped. The bridge and tail piece were solid and snug, without any looseness to take away sustain. The action on the guitar was a bit high for my taste (I prefer a low action) however a majority of players wouldn't mind it. The action was PERFECT for a combination of picking and slide. Pickups aren't too bad. Personally, I am installing some Seymour Duncan Alnico II zebra's in it to trick it out. The imput jack was mounted perfectly, and the toggle switch was firm. The fit and finish was near flawless, with the only complaint being the the neck binding at the very bottom of the neck was a little too rough to rate it a 10. - You have to look for it to notice it FYI. The frets were polished and very well rounded, crowned perfectly. Action was very slick. Overall, I was very impressed with my Epiphone model. Their quality has sky-rocketed in the past 10 years. The inlays weren't sloppy and the binding was spot on. I own a '97 limited edition LP model with a Bigsby and I would rate that a 6 compared to this one. Definitely one worth buying.

I was excited to receive my LP in the mail today until I opened the box and upon inspection found some flaws. The biggest one being that it's made in CHINA!? I asked around and researched a bit but couldn't find anyone who knew where Epiphone was made. I feel violated now! Besides that the pickup selector switch didn't work due to the fact the little plastic knob was jammed on so hard it cracked in half which stopped it from locking in either position, the bottom bracket for the pick guard has a sharp cut into the metal and is discolored. The set neck joint looks sloppy and there are dust specks in the finish. If you flip the guitar over the edges where they cut the access holes are rough and has primer showing. It also has pretty high action set on it too. So much for product control.

Great guitar for a good price.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I bought this guitar 2 weeks ago. When I first started to play it, I didn't like it that much because it was hard to get used to. (My previous guitar was a stratocaster)After my fingers grew accustomed to the new fret board I loved it. I'm going to buy a pair of EMG-ZW's because the pickups that came in it aren't of the best quality but this overall, is an awesome guiitar

great for the money

By wmp4lI-KN

from Undisclosed

I got this for christmas, and it is great. I hooked it up to my little practice amp and wow. IT sounds great on clean, and when you turn distortion on the pickups are not muddy like some other les pauls that I have played. I would suggest putting some different pickups in it because the ones in it are not of the best quality. The pictures do not do the guitar justice, the paint job looks more like a black joe perry boneyard. I also has cream binding.

Great Guitar

By Rhythmgtr

from NE

Ver nice action and feel right out of the box. The pickups are a little lacking but i put a Seymour Duncan at the bridge and now it sounds amazing. Its the perfect guitar for me (rhythm). It looks amazing, in some light it does have a hunter green tint, wierd but cool. Overall, the best guitar i could've bought with the money i had.

good looking cheapie

By JT-fgE7d

from East Hanover, NJ

I literally bought this on looks alone. I have played Pauls before and liked them although always thought they were too heavy. This one seems lighter for some reason. Quality of build and finish is top notch. Pickups? Guys, why bother? These aren't even what I would consider useable through a practice amp. Once I roll some more pennies a set of nice EMG's will make this a real favorite to play. All in all, a great value for the money and a great looking guitar!

I'm extremely happy with this guitar!!

By prsplayer830

I recently got the Epiphone Les Paul Standard with the trans-black flame, black hardware and un-covered pickups. Of course I had to lower the action... Epiphone sets it too high for my liking. When I lowered the action.... it became apparent that the top frets were high cause it was fretting out up there. So I had to level the frets. Once I did that it was great. This guitar is light weight... only about 8 pounds. It plays beautifully!! I swear it plays just like some Gibson Les Paul Standards I've tried!! Seriously. And the stock pickups sound very, very good!! The guitar sounds GREAT through my Peavey Classic 30 and my Marshall DSL 100! The true test was when I took it to a gig. I really realized how comfy this guitar is to play!! Very easy to play and has an inspiring feel and sound! It stayed in tune well. I do plan on replacing the bridge though. I don't like the stock Epiphone T.O.M. bridges. They don't have enough saddle travel for proper intonation. I was able to get it close..... but I'll need a wider bridge. In conclusion.. I LOVE this guitar!! It feels great and looks BEAUTIFUL!! I love the trans black flame with black hardware and un-covered pickups!! SWEET!! I have several Epiphone Les Pauls and they're all great!!

Great LP

This is a great guitar, everything on it was perfect when i recieved it (besides one volume knob was very slightly crooked, 1 second fix), its a great playing guitar, fast neck, very solid body, nothing needed to be changed, stays in tune for weeks, plays and sounds just as good as the gibsons, plus that paint job is amazing, i've gotten a few different colors our of it from different light, from a metallic dark green to silver, this is a great guitar and id recommend to anyone, especially for the price

Decent Axe

By njsedlacek

from Guam

I love this guitar. After a few mods, it's all worth it. Great action, great sustain. After I changed the stock pups, it really really sang. I changed out the stock pickups for low output relatively mellow Gibson Burstbuckers. It sounds ABSOLUTELY amazing. One more mod I did was take the pickguard off. It's a great guitar, and mine now plays and sounds like a Gibson. Although it's a pretty good guitar stock. Look around a bit more before you buy.

Limited edition Standard Plus

By Zakkwannabe77

from Argillite, Kentucky

This guitar is great. It has very well built hardware. I would suggest swapping the bridge pickup for a hotter sound(im going to get a EMG h4).The neck pickup is great for blues and clean tones.The neck is fast and was set up perfect out of the box.

cross your fingers

By markmyart

from Atlanta, GA

I received a poorly manufactured guitar. It had a crack in the neck. The fret board was poorly joined to the neck. It was not placed evenly, or they missed sanding that area at the top of the fretboard. The switch cover, on the guitar's back, had a white coating of paint spray on the Black finish. The back also had ripples of a poor spray paint coating. I've had good Epiphones. They can be the best value and sound! However, this ones going back for a second try at something that resembles quality.

beatiful guitar

By LPLover-Z8ewh

from Grand Junction, CO

I have wanted a Les Paul for a while, and I finally got one. When I opened the box, I loved the transparent black flamed maple finish. It looks so much better than in the pictures. It was good quality, except for the nut on the input jack fell off, the knobs were a little bit loose, and there was minor fret buzz, but they were all quick fixes. The pickups sound ok, but have little sustain. I am planning on getting the Dimarzio D Activator DP220 and DP219 pickup set to fix that problem. The guitar feels great to hold. It may feel heavy to some, but I like my guitars to have some wieght to them. One more good thing about this guitar is that it has real grover tuners. This guitar plays nicely and is a good deal. I would recommend this guitar for anyone who likes Les Pauls.
