Excellent guitar for all experience levels

GuitarPerson, 07.05.2018
I've been playing guitar for 30 years and this little Epiphone is my favourite guitar so far! It's surprisingly light - feels much lighter than my strat.
It arrived well-packaged from Thomann and only slightly out of tune (came tuned to D-standard btw). If you are getting this as a first guitar please make sure you have a jack cable and some plectrums/picks as all you get is the guitar and no bonus goodies.

Once out of the box it looks and sounds amazing, especially for the price.
The tone, volume and switch buttons are well made and responsive.
The neck and bridge humbuckers are very, very good.

The only drawbacks: the flimsy output jack (which I feel one good hard tug could rip it out) and the tuners (one of which in particular requires delicate turning to keep in tune).
Both of these problems are minor and fixable and don't detract from an otherwise excellent low-cost guitar. I just use a male/female adapter and leave it plugged into the jack plate to prevent damage to it. I may replace tuners later on if required.


Final word: Its a no fuss, pick up and play type of guitar. I give it a solid 5/5 rating.


Pros:
- Sounds great. Very resonant guitar even when unplugged. No fret buzz. Well set-up.
- Looks great. The walnut gives it a very classic look.
- Feels great. Light and thin with nice neck. No sharp fret-ends. Zero fret buzz.

Cons:
- The Jack output feels flimsy.
- Tuners not the greatest.
- Comes with no 'extras' (no jack cable or plec)

Epiphone Les Paul Special VE WLV

Colin Sib, 21.12.2017
I ordered this guitar as part of a bundle package deal. I had to wait 4 months for delivery due to supply problems but the delay was definitely worth the wait. This was my first electric guitar purchase having played acoustic before in my relatively short playing career of just over 2? years. It ticked all the boxes for me, looks, feel, quality of the fittings, playability, sound. I have taken this guitar to several jam sessions attended by far more experienced guitarists than myself & they have all commented on how great it is to play. For the price it is a great purchase , very pleased.
