It's a wonderful instrument for its price range
Francisco Caeiro, 21.12.2020
This was my first real guitar and I hope to use it in the future for playing live and recording

If you want a Gibson Les Paul but ain't got the money for it, The Epiphone Les Paul Classic is basically a Gibson Les Paul but with a lower price. I played on a Gibson before and after playing this one it was evident that there was no difference. The only difference was the headstock where instead being labeled "Gibson" it's labeled as "Epiphone".

This beautiful piece brings 2 Alnico Pro Custom humbuckers which sound beautiful. Not only brings these amazing pickups but the guitar also features CTS Eletronics which mean there's coil-splitting and a phase switcher which is always nice since it brings more variety to the guitar's configurations
The weight is good for the guitar it is. It's not heavy but also not light
The color finishing in this guitar is one of the most beautiful finishes I've seen on a guitar. If you put this thing on the sunlight you'll be stunned by how astonoshing this thing is

Now this was more of a personal experience. It might not happen to you but if it does there's no harm done. One of the volume pots got loose and kept falling off however with a piece of tin foil I managed to fix that little problem.


Overall, for the price that it's offered for an Epiphone Les Paul. I can say you'll be more than served. It's a great guitar and isn't as expensive as a Gibson. This thing plays like a real Gibson Les Paul and you'll be more than satisfied with this guitar if you're looking for that Les Paul sound

After a year of use
NeilReidDublin, 12.02.2021
So so happy with this guitar - The range of tones is exceptional and the craftmanship in it is second to none. I love it.

Heavy guitar so If you don't like heavy this ain't for you. But you won't be looking at Les Pauls if you like light wishy washy strats anyway.

I'd have been lost without it over the past year in Lockdown and working from home. Thanks Thomann .... love it.....

excellent
CemT, 18.02.2021
A bit of fine tuning/adjustment required but quality of materials and sustain is good in general. However, push-pull volume knob of neck pickup loosened after a couple of push-pull usage and couldn't grip the pot enough for push-pull action anymore, just in the very first week, Had to send it back for inspection&service.

unglaublich...
Piet57, 16.12.2020
... diese Gitarre ist traumhaft, Preis/Leistung unschlagbar. Im direkten Vergleich mit meiner Original Gibson LP Studio einfach traumhaft. Die Verarbeitung ist unglaublich gut, die Optik super. Die Coil-Split-Funktion ist tadellos und der Grundsound der Gitarre ist Spitze. Absolute Kaufempfehlung
