do not hesitate, just buy it.
Peeke001, 07.06.2021
I am a guitar player for 25 jears. Finally there is a payable alternative for
a nice Gibson Les Paul guitar that does not suck.
It still cost some money but you get some nice things in return. Real Gibson burstbuckers, the 50's wiring and the nice switch.
Finally i got "that" tone. From Slash to Eric Clapton and Gary Moore.
I never found it in an other guitar.
Some negative points:
I will change the tuners to locking tuners because they aren't that nice.
I will also change the nut to a graph tech one.
One the pickguard there is a small burr, easy removable if you know what you are doing.
Also do not forget to buy a extra wide and comfy guitar strap because this guitar is F'ing heavy.
Positive:
It is affordable.
It is beautiful.
Out of the box the action and intonation was ok.
The guitar has "that" sound.
you can easily do the Gary Moore eternal sustain thing.
The feel and playability are superb.
Nice fretwork, no sharp edges and not a single buzzing fret.
I cannot imagine that a "real" Gibson is much better.

I love this guitar, even before the mods.
Do not hesitate, just buy it. You will be happy, I know I am.

An impressive guitar for a reasonable price
svenakos, 20.05.2021
This is a very nice guitar, with solid construction and finish. It's a bit on the heavy side, as is to be expected for a Les Paul, has good sustain, usable tuners, a nice chunky neck, and sounds good unplugged.
Setup out of the box was a bit dodgy, there was some rattling and intonation was off, but nothing that a bit of work couldn't fix.
The included case is nice but not great; careful: the inside is relentlessly pink.

Now for the absolute stars of the show: the Burstbucker pickups.
I know this is a matter of taste, but these are the best pickups I've ever heard in any guitar. I was expecting much, but was still pleasantly surprised. Sound is full and detailed, they are very responsive to playing dynamics, and overall just really, really take this guitar to another level.

Overall, if you are considering this guitar and are aware that it's a fifties style, chunky, heavy guitar for players with large hands and strong backs, then by all means get it, now. It's great.

Good but nothing special.
GesW, 12.01.2021
The setup out of the box was OK, but not good. The jack socket was very stiff. Could not insert the jack. The case is made cheap and it included only one key, no spare. The neck is chunky. It is a nice mat finish and overall it is a good guitar though, but not very impressive. It arrived with a broken switch, unfortunately. :-(
Epiphone still has a plenty of room for improvement, I think. Limited edition clearly does not mean for them a better quality comparing to other models. Actually my 2 year old Standard Pro seems to be finished better than this one. Good product but nothing special.
Edit: When was changing stings for the first time I found that one saddle screw was broken already. Poor quality "Inspected by Gibson".

Close But Not Close Enough
LiamNomad, 26.12.2020
I own a number of USA Gibson Les Paul guitars and was interested in this '59 Epiphone spec. The features of original '50s wiring, witchcraft selector switch and output jack, CTS pots, 50s era wiring, vintage paint finish and Mallory capacitors all sounded very promising.

That all promptly ended when it arrived and I opened the case "Limited Edition 1959 Les Paul Standard is Epiphone's stunning recreation of the rare vintage classic" is misleading. There was heavy scuffing to the body and tooling marks on the fretboard. Even the 'Limited Edition' medallion on the rear is cheap looking and has visible bubbles on the surface! The Indian Laurel is okay but not the 'stunning recreation' as advertised because it should be Rosewood to be correct. The guitar case is cheap and nasty to the touch and looks it, particularly if you have ever owned a USA Gibson original guitar hard case.

The largest disappointment is the overall 'aged finish' which is really just a plain matt finish, there's nothing vintage about it. The promised AAA figured maple veneer... is AA at best. Even worse is there is no Certificate of Authenticity I would expect with this Limited Edition. Plus these is no multi-tool or truss-rod adjustment tool included.

Really, really terrible guitar from Epiphone. It sounded good on the website, but I am very disappointed. It does not match up to what was promised in quality or finish for that price.
