A massive improvement over previous Epiphone models

Michael12, 10.12.2013
The next person I hear describing Korean Epiphones as "superior" to Chinese models will need a lesson in guitar quality assessment.

I have owned quite a few epiphones alongside Gibson models, and the latest generation of Chinese guitars (the "pro" range), are by far, the best models that Epiphone have produced in recent decades.

Epiphone have traditionally produced very good guitars which were left down by a few quality issues. Some Korean models had awful electronics, dodgy tuners, mystery woods, and random neck profiles. Chinese models suffered from inconsistent finishing, poor electronics and very often had loose frets. Cheap bridges have been an issue on both. Neither "felt" as good to play as the Gibson equivalents either.

The "pro" guitars are a whole different proposition! They are massively improved. Apart from some minor, addressable issues, they are every bit as good as instruments as the American Gibson models.

The Les Paul Custom Pro is the first Epi that I did not need to give to a luthier for critical issues.
Fretting is great, and the action can be set low. The neck profile and fretboard feel like a les paul should. Korean LPCs, though very good, did feel like a different guitar entirely to a Gibson Les Paul, mainly due to the fretboard and neck. The rosewood is smooth and dark, and feels great. Even though I do prefer ebony for the snappy attack, this looks and feels great!
The pickups are really good. They are articulate and clear, ans if you like PAFs, the Probuckers are every bit as good as Gibson Burstbuckers. I have replaced the bridge pickup with higher output pickups, but this is purely a preference thing for the music I play. I do this with most guitars, even Gibson, but the days of Epiphone pickups being poor quality are gone, thankfully. If I wanted a PAF sound, the Probuckers are great!
The electronics are very high quality, unlike older models. Smooth pots, volumes that are smooth from ten down to zero, with very good control. The coil tap is also a nice feature.
The locking bridge is good, better than the old cheap Sung Li bridges, but a Tone Pros upgrade might be better in the long term. The tuners are great too. Top quality as always from Grover. The nut is also better than older Epiphones.

The guitar is solidly built and feels of quality. This is an instrment that musicians can be proud to own. I love this guitar.

Sexy looks at great price

Ray97, 24.08.2017
This is quite a nice guitar for the money. Visually it looks fantastic. The ebony finish with gold hardware gives the instrument a very classy look.
The hardware feels solid and the tuners have a surprisingly smooth turn.
The pickups sound decent, not US Gibson level, but better than some other Made-in-Chinas that I've encountered.
The push-pull pots give lots of tonal options with coil-splits and a phase switch, which gives you an extra option for tone in the middle position.
The only slight issue I've encountered with the electronics is that at one point the neck pickup cut out for a second while turning the tone, but that only happened once and hasn't been a recurring issue (could've also been something else in the signal chain though, like a loose cable or something).
Out of the box it needed a small setup (lowered strings, straightened neck and adjusted pickup height). Has been a great guitar since.
On a final note - as it tends to be with Les Pauls - this guitar is heavier than it looks, but that isn't much of an issue (it's actually pretty good to play standing up).

Overall a sexy and solid guitar
