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.

Beautiful and packed with goodies

I absolutely love this Epiphone Les Paul Modern. The "Sparkling Burgundy" colour changes in the light (like a glass of wine) - so it's even better "in the flesh" than on photos. The black ebony fretboard is stunning and the Grover locking tuners are truly awesome. Then you plug it in and get an amazing tone out of those shiny chrome probuckers! So this guitar surpassed my expectations. The only thing I didn't like were the transparent volume/tone knobs... but I had already bought a new set (in black) - so problem solved. There are so many quality features (Graph Tech nut, Grover Rotomatic Locking Tuners, Ebony Fretboard, Probucker pickups, etc.) in this guitar. It's definitely "value for money" - but also a lot more than that. In my opinion it deserves 5 stars in features, sound and quality.

Great design with some quality concerns

Excellent guitar, extremely playable, great neck profile with weight reduced body.

Colour is beautiful but less sparkly then expected. By looking at the pictures I thought camera didn't do justice to the colour, but images are well taken and guitar really lacks sparkling effect. If you want sparkly colour, go with the Pelham Blue version. Nevertheless, Burgundy red is breathtaking. Finish is not as tick as on Fender Player series, which is a plus for me, and paintjob and binding are perfect.

Some quality concerns though, one pickup ring is broken - screw is not holding the pickup which results in sunken bridge pickup. Also, output jack is loose and cable is rattling, so far it seems it can't be screwed in, but the contact is good. No other concerns for now.

I'll take it to the service and change the parts, it is not going to be expensive, but did not expect poor quality control in such basic things.
