i have this guitar and a gibson les paul just like it. they play and sound exactly the same. the only real differences the paintjob and the price. the gibson has that smooth gold finish while the epi has a sparkle finish. while the finish is really nice, it's not as smooth as on the gibson. in terms of how they play, they're almost identical. when i got the epiphone, the frets were a little rough but other than that, it was perfect. the weight and neck feel identical between the two. while having different pickups, they sound as pretty close to the same as any two guitars can. i tried them both through my 25 watt fender practice amp and my 100 watt marchall stack and the differences are nil.the main difference is the price. the gibson costs $2k while the epiphone is under $500. i have 14 guitars and 2 basses and i love my gibson but the epiphone les paul is the best deal i've ever come across in a guitar.features - it's a les paul. it is what it is and shouldn't have all sorts of features.quality - good overall, great function and sound, budget paintjobvalue - best you can find anywhereoverall - great guitar!happy buying!

First of all, this guitar is overrated. It's pretty good for the price but the action was too low so it buzzed alot. It was an easy fix. The buzzing stopped. Another thing is, the pickups were pretty crappy. The sustain sucked too. This guitar is above average but I don't recommend it. Good price though. But if you're going to buy an Epiphone Les Paul, I recommend getting the les paul ultra or the les paul standard. Trust me they're at least 3 times better than the LP classic plus. I will return it in a few days because it's really not that good.

Recreational player - goes to the next level

By Love_the_epi

from Pearland, TX

I'm a complete amateur guitar hack, noodling around now and then since college (about 10 years) and have always wanted to get one of these. After about a year of barely picking up my current electric (strat knockoff) or acoustic (decent yamaha), this guitar arrived yesterday, and after a quick tuning, I felt like I was right back where I left off...I'm looking forward to being able to break through to the 'next level' a lot more easily now than on my old equipment. Plus the sunburst looks as awesome as I expected it would.

Classic Plus

By Epiphone epiphany

from Knoxville, TN

See all my reviews

This guitar is great for those going from intermediate to advanced. If you're a beginner and want to get that Paul sound, go Special 2 with the humbuckers. Reason is, the classics and standards get a bit pricey if you're a beginner just starting out. The Classic Plus gives great tone with Gibson Designed Open humbuckers. You really get that fat Paul sound and can easily modify your tone with a little tweaking with the toggle switch and knob selections. Action is smooth and the lacquer finish on my heritage cherry sunburst is gorgeous. Really, I see no point in going full Gibson when you have an already great guitar right here to play. Not too expensive, but not "cheap" either. Does it really make a difference where it's built if you use the same woods? My Classic Plus also sounds great with the combo amp I use, which is a Marshall AVT50 (great sound from a hybrid tube/state amp which doesn't cost an arm and a leg, and you can gig with it too).

Great deal

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I almost didn't buy this guitar. I am so happy that I did, though. I've been playing it for six months now and this Is the best guitar I have played among the others owned by my fellow guitarists. The only miner problem I got to was the action was a little low for me, but it's a quick fix for a les paul like this. It sounds great, feels great, and the heritage cherry is absolutely beautiful. If you are considering buying this, look no further.

It absolutely blew my Stratocaster away...

By CDysert75

from Ada, Ohio

I have no regrets about getting my new Epiphone. It plays great, the pickups are great and if you can't afford a Gibson, which a lot of people can't, this is your guitar. I wouldn't trade mine for the world It was GREAT purchase. No regrets at all.

Great value

By Larryebo

This is a great guitar for the money. I'm not crazy about the pickups but only because they don't have covers. They actually sound pretty good. The plastic control covers, pickup rings and pick guard are cheap but they can all be replaced at little cost if you are so inclined. The workmanship on the guitar itself is very nice. The binding fits flush everywhere. I can't even say that about my Gibson LP. The fretboard is really nice. It was filthy when I got it, but it cleaned up beatifully. I also like the Grover tuners. If you want a Les Paul but can't afford a Gibson, this is absolutely the next best thing.

Great Guitar For The Money

By Baktown

from Bakersfield, CA

See all my reviews

I really like this guitar. I can play it really hard and it stays in tune, which is a WHOLE lot more than I can say for my Ibanez Artcore. My only complaint is that the nut grooves came from the factory cut way too deep, and I have to use really heavy strings to avoid string buzz on the 3rd fret. I play this guitar through my original Line 6 AxSys 212, and it really screams on the Marshall w/bass boost setting.

Best LP for the price

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This guitar is absolutly fabulous. You cant go wrong, especially with the great price that MF offers. I you love Gibson but cant afford their LP's, look no more. Epiphone is the way to go. I hope you make the right choice and enjoy your new guitar in the near future.

Amazing don't hesitate to buy

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

The Guitar is amazing. The classic pickups blow the standard and custom out of the water. The vintage sunburst is absolutely beutiful. The inlays are gorgeous and I can say nothing bad about the hard ware. Out of the box the bridge needed to be lowered slightly but thats it. I haven't had to tune it other than from standard to d in 3 weeks thanks to grover tuners. The rhythm pickup is great for that page tone while the treble for something more like randy rhoads or tony iommi. In essence this guitar is amazing and look at that price. With the vintage sunburst I gave her a vintage name Lucy.

Great Guitar

By NothingFace12o6

from Maple Grove, MN

I just got this a couple days ago in the mail and it is just plain awesome. I got this in Cherry sunburst off eBay for cheap, but it came originally from this site. I was blown away by the sound, tone, and quality of this guitar. The pickups are great for stocks and the neck is like butter. This is over a hundred times better then my last guitar (a J.Reynolds Strat Copy with some modified electronics and cosmetics). The regular price is already a steal for the money.

Epiphone Maniac

By Justin-3ISp6

from I n the US

The Epiphone Les Paul Classic Plus is the best guitar you'll ever play. I have played many gibson and epiphone guitars but this is the best I have played. It sound so much better than any gibson guitar. I say if you read my blog you should buy this awesome guitar. Also I'm in a garage band called "Crimson Tears". So when you see me as famous as the best band Slipknot I'll still be playing the Epiphone Les Paul Classic Plus.

Buy this guitar!

By Patro

from Lake Havasu City, AZ

This guitar just showed up at my door yesterday, and I cannot put it down. It has an incredible sound, and a beautiful finish. The only adjustments that it needed was for me to tune it up, and raise the action just a little to eliminate buzzing. Don't let the price fool you, this is a fantastic guitar with and unbelievable price.

Great Guitar

By jldsooner-nhKZw

from Colcord, OK

I bought this guitar based on the price and the great reviews. I have 10 other electrics: Gibson, B.C. Rich, Fender, Epiphone, and I have played for 30 years, as soon as I plugged this one in, I knew it was one of the best sounding I had. Classic Les Paul sound. I would purchase this guitar at 3 times the paid price and still be satisfied.

Killer Guitar On the Loose...

By Sonic Mike Stephens

from Prescott, AZ

See all my reviews

I have had over 50 guitars, everything from Strats to real LPs and I have to say this gold top Les Paul Classic is the best I have played. Came set up pretty well, but took it to my guitar guy and he did wonders. Great rock, blues sound, and a beautiful playing experience. Not anvil heavy like Gibsons either! This price is great, and so is this guitar.

Best guitar I've owned so far

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This in my mind is the best guitar I have ever played, it feels amazing and it sounds amazing seeing how I switched the pickups out for burstbucker series 1 and 2(like the Gibson Les Paul Standards). This out of my other guitar (Dean 79' V) is alot better.
