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.

Good but nothing special.

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".

Epiphone 1959

This guitar is a excellent guitar for the money well worth it
one or two little flaws but I can live with it seen a lot worse
on more expensive guitars it is a keeper so if you do manage
to play one you will know what I am saying the neck on the guitar
is amazing to play and sounds really good with all the Gibson electrics
the only down side to this is that if you live in the UK there will be import charges of at least 150.00 for this guitar on top of the sale price
so keep that in mind before you buy do some research first that applys
to anything you buy now from any EU Country

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.
