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!

Great sound

viccord81, 17.04.2018
To value the guitar I will adjust to the quality / price ratio. Considering the price of the guitar, there are few instruments that can compete with this guitar. The sound, the warmth and tone of the pads is fantastic. The comfort of the mast and the matt black color, the gold fittings give it a beautiful style. In my particular case, I have gone from a low winning guitar to this guitar and the change has been great.
By cons I have to say that the guitar is made in China and that detail is noticeable. The finishes leave a little to be desired, and that is when you open the brown case with the inside in pink and you eat the guitar for the first time, you would like it to be spotless and of course it is not the case. It has small marks all over the neck, fingerboard and small details that I suppose have passed the quality control because the bar is lower than in a guitar of 2000 euros.
Greetings.
