Best accessible Les Paul!
Miroslav Kopiika, 02.08.2020
In 2020 the Epiphone has changed for the better, definitely! The feel of the guitar is much nicer than the earlier releases. The appearance is very cool. The maple top also looks very awesome, it has cool looking "wavy" 3D effect. Finally the head shape is now close to Gibson's, looks tasty! In general, the assembly is done with proper quality. Tuning holds perfectly, which was a surprise for me. A thicker 50s neck is great for those with long fingers like mine. :) In 50s version pickups have something middle between the mid and high output with vintage character, but its can handle any of your tasks. The sound became much closer to the daddy Gi :).

Definitely worth every penny and your attention!

Thank you very much Tomann for fast delivery and safe packaging!

Ganz viel E-Gitarre für's Geld!
banana_horst, 06.09.2020
Nachdem ich mich bisher nie dazu durchringen konnte, 2000 oder mehr Euros für eine "echte" Standard-Paula auszugeben, kam die "Inspired by Gibson"-Reihe von Epiphone gerade recht. Folgendes ist mir dabei aufgefallen:
- Die Verpackung der Gitarre mutet nicht gerade liebevoll an. Karton, ein weißer Stoffsack, irgendwie unordentlich. Aber sei's drum, das Instrument hat es ohne Beschädigung zu mir geschafft. Passt schon.
- Erster Eindruck: Tolle Verarbeitung, auch bei näherem Hinsehen fallen weder größere noch kleinere Schnitzer ins Auge. Einzig das Schlagbrett hat nicht ganz saubere Kanten, aber das montiere ich sowieso ab, also egal.
- Optik: Die Lackierung und die Decke darunter sehen richtig, richtig gut aus. Binding sauber eingelegt. Hardware ordentlich montiert.
- Setup: Brücke, Saitenreiter, Halskrümmung und Pickuphöhe sind etwas "eigenwillig" eingestellt. Da aber sowieso jeder andere Vorlieben bei so was hat (und ich meine Gitarren immer selbst einstelle), kein Problem.
- Haptik: Bissl schwerer ist sie ja schon. Daneben irgendein Zeug auf den Saiten, das die Finger beim Spielen schwarz färbt. Also Saiten runter, kurz saubermachen, neue drauf. Schon besser.
- Sound: Holzig, satt, druckvoll, singend, viel Sustain. Klingt clean, angezerrt und bei vollem Brett absolut amtlich. Bin extrem positiv überrascht. Große Bandbreite an Sounds nur durch Spiel mit den Volume- und Tone-Pots.
Summa summarum: Klare Empfehlung für jeden, der eine tolle LP für vergleichsweise kleines Geld möchte.

Lækker guitar til prisen
Jolmer, 24.07.2020
Jeg er overrasket over hvor god en guitar man kan få til forholdsvis små penge

God gedigen lyd fra de to humbuckere, Thomann skriver det er ProBucker 2 & 3 men på Epiphones hjemmeside skriver de det er modellerne 1 og 2 der sidder i netop denne model. De klarer dog både det mere stille og rene, og magter også opgaven når man skruer op for forvrængningen.

En ting jeg er meget glad for er at den holder stemningen vildt godt. Ikke noget med at spille to-tre minutter og så stoppe op for at stemme på denne spade, som man ellers kan opleve på andre billige guitarer.
Jeg kan sidde og spille om aftenen og morgenen efter holder den stadig stemningen

Selve setuppet krævede kun en lille justering af truss rod for at strengene klinger rent og den er behagelig at spille på

Båndene og finish er ok - der er ikke noget der virker forkert på mit eksemplar

Halsen er en 50s Rounded Medium C - den er dejlig stabil uden de samme følsomheder for ydre påvirkninger (Temperatur og luftfugtighed) som en tyndere hals kan være.
Den er dog ikke så tyk som halsen på en Fender Vintera Tele 50' f. eks.

Guitaren er i den lidt tungere ende, men med en god rem er det heller ikke værre.

Alt i alt jeg meget tilfreds med denne guitar
