i recently got this guitar and i'm truely more than happy with this guitar! its pretty heavy, the finish on this is really nice the frets are nice a smooth it feels amazing to play
Multiple bound body with arched top and gold hardware, a quick mahogany neck for great action and feel and a solid, glued neck joint for stability and a great sustain all come together to make this guitar one of the best values on the market today.
now the most important this is the sound of this guitar... this comes with epiphone humbucker pickups which gives an amazing classic rock sound like guns n roses and led zeppelin i was very impressed with the sound
and they also can give a pretty decent metal tone!
the set up when i got this guitar was pretty decent i did however get some fret buzz from the string that came with this guitar and quickly changed them over for a pretty set
now this guitar was built to last its a really good soild body guitar the hardware holding it all together is really good i've gigged with this guitar without a back up and i've still havnt had a problem yet! it stays in tune for ages! i hardly ever have to tune this thing.
overall a truely amazing guitar for the price! alot of people perfer epiphone guitars to gibson just simply because of the price diffrence and i see why, i love this guitar that much am saving to buy another so i can have one in a diffrent tuning to the other one!
if this guitar was stolen i'd cry and would give anything to get it back or get another one this is truly a guitar people should have or at least try it!
This was my first real electric guitar, and I was very lucky to have such a beautiful one. At the time I was playing in a pop/punk band, although the guitar would sound great in any metal, indie or classic outfit. The black finish was immaculate, adding to the beauty. The only real downside I found was that it was quite heavy. However, it was a great guitar to play.
It includes volume and tone dials which allow for changes to be made instantly without having to move to the amplifier. It also has a toggle to change between the 3 sets of pick-ups. I personally used this to turn one pick up completely off and the other on full, meaning I could quickly shift the toggle to give the effect of silent breaks in my playing.
I would recommend this guitar to literally anybody who wants a guitar. It is great for beginners and experts alike.
I purchased this guitar last year to accompany my Gibson SG and it's safe to say it definitely puts up a fight against the Gibson brand.
I bought this guitar because it was used a lot by one of my favourite bands (My Chemical Romance) and I love the sound. I'd never bought from Epiphone before and I was worried that the sound would sound terrible compared to a Gibson and I'd be wasting my money (I bought it online so I couldn't test it out before hand). However when I finally got the guitar and got to play it, all those worries disappeared.
Epiphone lives up to being Gibson's 'young brother' and I would definitely buy an Epiphone again as they provide the great Gibson sound without the huge price tag, something which has recently become an issue. Whilst playing this guitar, you tend to get the feeling that you could play anything if you put your mind towards it, and it certainly is a guitar for any musical style and if you don't want to make my word for it, go to your local guitar shop and try one out for yourself!
Splendid craftsmanship, superb tone and especially sexy; the Les Paul Custom from Epiphone just makes me proud, nothing more. I've had this guitar for over two years now, twinned with a valve-state marshal amp which makes for a perfect couple by the way. The Les Paul Custom itself comes with twin humbucker pickups coated in gold plating which looks amazing up against the black of the body; but I don't really need to tell how good it looks. The sound quality is great for such a cheap guitar too, really great. I'd compare it to some of the highest spec guitars; it's just that good. Great for beginners and pros. I started out using this and I've never felt the need to upgrade as my playing improved. I genuinely believe that this guitars' overall style and smoothness helped me learn and will continues to please me every time I pick it up to play.

First off, this guitar is visually stunning. The alpine white version is possibly the best looking guitar around. Also, the classic, iconic and ever popular Les Paul shape is shown in all its glory through this guitar. This came from the warehouse in perfect condition, no belmishes on the paintwork, set up perfectly- despite slightly low action, easily dealt with- and everything was as it should be.
The stock pick ups that come on this guitar are ideal for all types of music, especially blues and rock. But honestly, this is a very versatile guitar and is capable of nice, chunky rhythm sounds or bright, mellow cleans even through a poor amp. However, through a quality amp, such as a Mesa Boogie, this guitar shows its true colours, and the sound is awesome. Very crushing overdriven sounds can be had, and beautiful cleans are also possible. For this price range, no better guitars for sound quality can be found. This is truly excellent under any circumstances. Yet, with a pickup change, this could easily rival the sound of a much more expensive Gibson!
I have had this guitar for just over a year now, and I have had no issues with reliability or the such. This guitar has not as of yet failed me, and is a very sturdy, reliable piece of gear. Even after a few tumbles and knocks, the finish had remained superb, and it is still as it was when I first bought it. It is fairly heavy though, but for me this is not a problem.
If you're looking for an affordable, yet quality guitar, you should definately consider purchasing one of these. Quality sounds, beautiful looks and realiability all make this an amazing guitar.
I play plenty of glam and Indie and it suits the style exceptionally well. I'm currently using a Line 6 Spider III and the humbuckers sound great especially on the rock solo setting. without distortion the treble sound is a bit raunchy but the rhythm pickup is soft but rich and warm.
My guitar will definitley withstand Live playing (I should know, I jump and down with it in my room all the time). The pickups and hardware will last a centruy. The finish is good and will last but brass pickup covers get tarnished easily. The strap buttons are secure but continuously taking the strap on and off it can become loose easily
As I said this guitar is perfect my styles (Glam and Indie), I've only being playing 19 months and it's my second guitar, I'm so pleased that I bought it. I own all sorts of gear, a Strat, Marshall MG30DFX to name a few. If it was lost or stolen I would buy another, either that or an Epiphone SG (my next investment). My favourite feature is the humbuckers. I can't really compare it to anything because it's in a class of it's own. The only thing that I wish it had was a five way selector Switch but otherwise it's a 10/10.
