Superb value for its money
Spiv, 10.11.2020
Beautiful guitar. I initially feared the red would be too bright, but it's not the case. I rate this 5 because of the pricing. Sure some finishing details could be better, like around the cut, but I don't expect this from a guitar in this price range and I already knew this from pics.
Worth noting: the guitar has even a prime spot in my living room and my girlfriend loves it.
What's more important though is the build, playability and sound. It feels solid, not too heavy, the knobs feel well build (not so much plastic covers though), the tuners are simply WOW! and the sound is superb.
Just one thing: change the strings immediately. My fingers got black after playing it a few minutes out of the box.

Very good for the money.
Jprev, 31.01.2021
The guitar is very good value for the money. And came with what feels like it has been set up.
Build quality is what is expected of a Chinese guitar. No noticeable manufacturing defects.

Finish is nice on the guitar. the tapered profile on the back of the neck is nice to play with.

Perfekte Gitarre
Hagrid29, 18.05.2020
Nach langer Überlegung und einer sehr hilfreichen und objektiven tel. Beratung durch den Thomann-Experten
habe ich die Epiphone Les Paul Modern bestellt.
Schon beim Auspacken war ich überrascht wie toll diese Gitarre verarbeitet ist, kein Makel vor allem ein sehr hochwertiges Finish. Optisch ein absolutes Highlight.
Dann der Sound: so wie man es von einer Les Paul erwartet.
Tolle Möglichkeiten zur Variation durch die neue Schaltung.
( Verstärker Fender GT 100 u. Twin Reverb ).
Ich kann diese Gitarre wärmstens empfehlen !
Ganz nahe an einer Gibson.
Das Preis/Leistungsverhältnis ist absolut top.
Durch die Gewichtsreduzierung ist diese Gitare auch komfortabel zu spielen

Dazu die Thomann-Beratung - besser geht es nicht !

Grande Guitarra!!
André Oliveira, 26.05.2020
Já não tocava guitarra eléctrica à mais de 10 anos. Durante os meus vintes toquei principalmente guitarra clássica, acústica e outros instrumentos de cordas acústicos. Recentemente comprei um áudio interface e voltei a pegar na velhinha guitarra eléctrica e o bichinho ainda lá estava. Decidi comprar um nova, numa gama de preço médio que fosse substancialmente melhor do que a que tinha, mas sem ser a preços de topo de gama.
Pode ser ingrato escolher uma guitarra sem a experimentar primeiro, mas nestes tempos era praticamente impossível. Após várias noites de pesquisa optei pela Epiphone Les Paul Modern. Felizmente não me enganei!!! A guitarra é incrivelmente boa!! O facto de ser mais leve que uma Les Paul clássica torna-a bastante agradável e confortável para tocar e o som é simplesmente genial! Os pickups Pro-Buckers com função split coil permitem tirar muitas tonalidades da guitarra, o braço é muito confortável quer para acordes quer para solos e o acabamento em tinto bordô é imaculado! Grande guitarra e grande som! E um obrigado à equipa da Thomman pela resposta pronta a dúvidas e questões e pelo envio rápido e completo da encomenda.
