For a long time I was considering buying a Gibson Les Paul Standard, but in the end I couldn't justify the 2K plus price tag. I'm a longtime Strat player but have always had this thing about owning a ''proper les Paul'' Some of my favourite players play these guitars (Slash, Jimmy Page etc) and for me these are the ultimate rock guitar. I just love the tone these guitars are capable of producing.

After a long time of considering some other Epiphone's I'm so glad I picked this one up. For me its a superb guitar for the price. The build is solid, don't let the ''made in China'' on the headstock put you off. The finish is flawless, no imperfections such as scratches, loose input jack, toggle switches etc. The fretboard was immaculate.

What really sold this guitar to me was that is was made in collaboration with the Gibson Custom shop, and is fitted with two genuine Gibson Burst-buckers 2 and 3 - they sound superb and are very versatile . The neck is fat, much bigger than I'm used to, but the playability is very good, and for me its a nice variation I can switch between.

For me this is the closest thing to owning a genuine Gibson you will find. I really can't see any cons with this guitar so far, but I guess time will tell. The hardshell case it comes with is good.
I'd definitely recommend this guitar and picking one up.

(I will edit this post in due course if the need arises)

A happy Thomann customer.

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.
There also is a graph tech Nubone nut.
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.
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 mod.
Do not hesitate, just buy it. You will be happy, I know I am.

I ordered this guitar after all the positive reviews I saw here and watched on Youtube, but today I plugged the guitar in and.. the middle position and neck pickups have 0 output - literally silent. The bridge works, but that's it. The guitar itself physically looks well put together, the case is great, but clearly nobody plugged it in before they put it in the box to see if all the electronics work or not. I now have to spend my money on bringing it to be looked at by a pro, cause who knows what the problem is. It's disappointing for a new ELECTRIC guitar to not actually have the ELECTRIC part proper, but I guess mass-production will have this effect on things. Anyways.. EVERYTHING else besides this about it IS great - hopefully mine was the rare specimen and won't be too expensive to get working again.

I've owned Gibson les Paul's going back to 1979. They all sounded great but every one had awful quality control. The Epiphone guitar is beautifully finished. Frets and binding is spot on. The flame is deep and perfectly book matched. The finish is great. The 50's wiring works the way it should the pickups sound great as they should. The case is better than the the Canadian one I had for my Gibson and is not far off the older cases I've had. I bought it because I'm done with Gibson and its awful quality control. The neck is as advertised and one of the most comfortable I've played.
