It's Franny-time!

16.08.2016
Another Epiphone Les Paul Custom, this time on the occasion of the 100th birthday of the master. With its Gibson USA Soapbar P-90 pickups, it also stands out of the crowd as well as with its varnish, but also the case is unusual.

Correctly called the Model? Ltd. Ed. Inspired by "1955" Les Paul Custom? Outfit And this is also the case. It is not a 100% replica of a 1955 Les Paul, it is only inspired by this vintage, with every navel show but also every basic cheat on this model ever. In various forums one writes the keyboards hot, which is all wrong here, why no staple pickups were used etc. pp .. * yawn *

Epiphone has launched its own model and has done a lot of work.

The guitar made in China impresses with its excellent workmanship. Of course, I checked them with Argusaugen after unpacking and could not find anything that could seriously be objected to. The lacquer, called? Aged Gloss Ebony? Is a matt varnish, which feels correspondingly. The varnish as well as the binding should be aged? Be what you can leave. Everything is very beautiful and even, body, neck and head plate are equally matt satin. The 5/7-layer body binding, the 1-layer fingerboard binding and the 5-layer headboard binding are almost perfect, the medium-jumbo frets are very clean and highly polished in the fingerboard as well as the very beautiful blockinlays. The ebony fingerboard is also very clean worked and looks very noble. The tuners are Epiphone "Deluxe"; 18: 1 ratio and earn the name also. They have been screwed very accurately to the head plate, which is unfortunately often not the case with Chinese guitars, and work smoothly. The rest of the gold hardware looks shiny and is just as cleanly attached, the potis run round, the buttons are very tasteful and do not look cheap.

In short, the Chinese have worked very well, the quality is not far from Japan guitars, and that means something. What might be noticed would be such tiny details, which could, however, have a hair-splitting effect on the road price of this instrument. I already had guitars of the 3.000-4.000 ¤ class in the hand, which were not so well processed. A point deduction is therefore absurd here.

How does it sound now?

All taste. It is a mahogany guitar with ebony fingerboard and Gibson USA P90 pickups. The sound, which you have with it, transforms the instrument perfectly. If I could have chosen, I would probably have installed other P90, but the sound there is nothing to complain about. On the contrary: she makes clean as dirty an excellent figure, even the Highgain trip was charming. Side position, playability, everything top. The neck shape is called? 1950s Rounded-C? And is noticeably different than the usual 1960's Slim Taper. I'm fine with it, there is no recommendation, everyone must try for themselves.

Conclusion: To the optical pleasure came the acoustic, more you can not have. For nearly 800 ¤ this beautiful, well-sounding guitar is thus a purchase tip!

What is the purpose of this?

A certificate with serial number and a suitcase, which makes the purchase price once again amazing. The case is almost perfectly processed on the outside and inside, but smells nasty, which is probably due to the gluing of the inner lining. Here, long exhausting is announced. It could also close a little better at the bottom. The overall color combination is however almost absurd: A black and golden guitar is in knallrosa plush, encased in red-brown artificial leather. I just had to laugh, but somehow it's cool again. Since a case is not an instrument, there is no trigger.

All in all deserved 5 stars!

And now it is called again amplifiers and Franny Beecher soli sound. Rock around the clock!

A great tribute to a legend!

21.11.2016
At three months after purchase I can be said to be more than satisfied. Let's get right away the pebbles from shoes as regards the weak points, which are very few;

The paint may leave some doubt because it is a treatment that is a cross between a matte and satin pulled a brush. The finish is extremely thin and even a slight scratch can quickly show the underlying wood. I think it's a treat wanted to mimic a vintage instrument, but I honestly could not better. Another problem, at least in my case, it was the instrument setup. extremely high action, bending hard, intonation not the best. All resolved with a general setup.

For action low (1.5mm low E, 1.2 to Cantino) I have not encountered any problems. Some slight buzz solved with a minimum of work.

Mechanical, and in general all the hardware, it is the height of the instrument in its price range. It fits well and keeps very well the tuning.

The instrument is very heavy, in my case almost 4 kg, and has a handle with a profile very "fat", with 950 inches at the first fret and 1,020 in twelfth. Features that are still expected seen the original instrument which is inspired. Fixed the minimum setup problems, the sustain is great and also the resonant acoustic field is remarkable, considering it is not wood of choice.

The sound is very rich, thanks to the Gibson original P90, and very bright, despite the construction which should be a kind of mahogany, maple table no. People like me who loves these old alnico 5 (measured output around the 8KOhm) will not be disappointed. Much output but also lots of control available.

The housing is a great plus for the type of tool and does his duty very well. Only flaw a padding a thin coat and the headstock area a little dancer. Excellent to park the guitar when not in use, a little less for us to travel or to dampen any buffeting and vibrations. In this case a better more valuable housing.

It has all the classic features of a custom, binding on top and bottom, diamond headstock, gold-plated hardware, black plastic etc ..

If you are a lover of the original 54/55, but do not want to spend € 6,000 for a reissue or 15,000 for an original (minimum!), This guitar is a must. Not a sop, but an excellent tool that once properly arises quietly set up to his "superiors" made in the USA.
