A distanza di tre mesi dall'acquisto posso dire di essere più che soddisfatto. Togliamoci subito i sassolini dalle scarpe per ciò che riguarda i punti deboli, che sono pochissimi;

La verniciatura potrebbe lasciare qualche dubbio perché si tratta di un trattamento che è una via di mezzo fra un matte ed un satin tirato a pennello. La finitura è estremamente sottile e anche un leggero graffio può subito mostrare il legno sottostante. Credo sia un trattamento voluto per imitare uno strumento vintage, ma onestamente non è riuscito al meglio. Altro problema, almeno nel mio caso, era il setup dello strumento. Action estremamente alta, bending durissimo, intonazione non delle migliori. Tutto risolto con un setup generale.

Ad action bassa (1.5mm Mi basso, 1.2 al Cantino) non ho riscontrato particolari problemi. Qualche leggero buzz risolvibile con un minimo di lavoro.

Le meccaniche, ed in generale tutto l'hardware, è all'altezza dello strumento, nella sua fascia di prezzo. Si accorda bene e mantiene egregiamente l'accordatura.

Lo strumento è decisamente pesante, nel mio caso quasi 4Kg, ed ha un manico con un profilo decisamente "fat", con 950 inch al primo tasto e 1.020 al dodicesimo. Caratteristiche che comunque sono attese visto lo strumento originale al quale si ispira. Risolti i problemi minimi di setup, il sustain è ottimo e anche la risonanza in ambito acustico è notevole, considerando non si tratta di legni di prima scelta.

Il suono è molto ricco, grazie ai Gibson P90 originali, e decisamente brillante, malgrado la costruzione che dovrebbe essere un qualche genere di mogano, senza tavola di acero. Chi come me ama questi vecchi alnico 5 (output misurato attorno gli 8KOhm) non rimarrà deluso. Tantissimo output ma anche tanto controllo disponibile.

La custodia è un ottimo plus per il tipo di strumento e fa il suo dovere egregiamente. Unico difetto un imbottitura un pelo magra e la zona headstock un pochino ballerina. Ottima per parcheggiare la chitarra quando non in uso, un po meno per farci viaggi o per smorzare eventuali sballottamenti ed urti. In questo caso meglio una custodia più di pregio.

Ha tutti i dettagli classici di una custom, binding su top e fondo, diamante sulla paletta, hardware placcato gold, plastiche nere etc..

Se siete un amante dell'originale 54/55, ma non volete spendere 6.000 euro per una reissue o 15.000 per una originale (minimo!), questa chitarra è un must. Non un contentino, ma un ottimo strumento che una volta settato propriamente si pone tranquillamente all'altezza dei suoi "superiori" made in usa.

Eine weitere Epiphone Les Paul Custom, diesmal anlässlich des 100. Geburtstages des Meisters. Mit ihren Gibson USA Soapbar P-90 Pickups sticht sie ebenso aus der Masse heraus, wie mit ihrer Lackierung, aber auch der Koffer ist ungewöhnlich.

Korrekt heißt das Model ?Ltd. Ed. Inspired by "1955" Les Paul Custom? Outfit? und genauso ist es auch zu betrachten. Es ist kein 100% Nachbau einer 1955er Les Paul, sie ist lediglich inspiriert von diesem Jahrgang, womit jede Nabelschau aber auch jedes grundsätzliche Genörgel an diesem Modell schon einmal entfällt. In diversen Foren schreibt man sich die Tastaturen heiß, was hier alles nicht stimmt, warum keine Staple-Pickups verwendet wurden etc. pp.. *gähn*

Epiphone hat ein eigenes Modell herausgebracht und dabei ganze Arbeit geleistet.

Die in China gefertigte Gitarre besticht zunächst einmal durch ihre hervorragende Verarbeitung. Selbstverständlich habe ich sie mit Argusaugen nach dem Auspacken geprüft und konnte eigentlich nichts finden, was man ernsthaft beanstanden könnte. Der Lack, genannt ?Aged Gloss Ebony? ist ein matter Lack, der sich entsprechend anfühlt. Der Lack wie auch das Binding sollen ?aged? sein, was man auch so stehen lassen kann. Alles sehr schön und gleichmäßig, Korpus, Hals und Kopfplatte sind gleichermaßen matt satiniert. Das 5/7-lagige Korpusbinding, das 1-lagige Griffbrettbinding und das 5-lagige Kopfplattenbinding sind nahezu perfekt ausgeführt, die Medium-Jumbo-Bünde sehr sauber und hochglanzpoliert im Griffbrett anzutreffen, ebenso wie die sehr schönen Blockinlays. Das Ebenholz-Griffbrett ist ebenfalls sehr sauber gearbeitet und sieht sehr edel aus. Die Mechaniken sind Epiphone "Deluxe"; 18:1 ratio und verdienen den Namen auch. Sie sind sehr akkurat an die Kopfplatte geschraubt worden, was bei China-Gitarren leider häufig nicht der Fall ist, und funktionieren geschmeidig. Die übrige Gold-Hardware sieht glänzend aus und ist ebenso sauber angebracht worden, die Potis laufen rund, die Knöpfe sind sehr geschmackvoll und wirken nicht billig.

Kurzum: Die Chinesen haben sehr ordentlich gearbeitet, die Qualität ist nicht weit entfernt von Japan-Gitarren, und das will was heißen. Das, was man bemerken könnte, wären solche Winzigkeiten, die jedoch im Hinblick auf den Straßenpreis dieses Instruments haarspalterisch wirken könnten. Ich hatte schon Gitarren der 3.000-4.000 ¤-Klasse in der Hand, die längst nicht so gut verarbeitet waren. Ein Punktabzug ist deshalb hier abwegig.

Wie klingt sie nun?

Alles Geschmackssache. Es ist eine Mahagoni-Gitarre mit Ebenholz-Griffbrett und Gibson USA P90-Pickups. Die Klangvorstellung, die man dadurch hat, setzt das Instrument perfekt um. Wenn ich hätte wählen können, hätte ich wohl andere P90 eingebaut, aber am Klang gibt es dennoch nichts auszusetzen. Im Gegenteil: Sie macht clean wie dirty eine hervorragende Figur, selbst der Highgain-Ausflug war reizvoll. Seitenlage, Bespielbarkeit, alles top. Die Halsform nennt sich ?1950s Rounded-C? und ist spürbar anders als die üblichen 1960's Slim Taper. Ich komme prima damit zurecht, hier gibt es keine Empfehlung, das muss jeder für sich probieren.

Fazit: Zur optischen Freude kam die akustische, mehr kann man nicht haben. Für knapp 800 ¤ ist diese wunderschöne, wohlklingende Gitarre damit ein Kauftipp!

Was gibt es dazu?

Ein Zertifikat mit Seriennummer und einen Koffer, was den Kaufpreis erneut erstaunlich wirken lässt. Der Koffer ist außen wie innen nahezu perfekt verarbeitet, riecht allerdings fies, was wohl auf die Verklebungen des Innenfutters zurückzuführen ist. Hier ist langes Auslüften angesagt. Er könnte auch etwas besser am unteren Teil schließen. Die Farbkombination insgesamt ist jedoch fast absurd gewagt: Eine schwarz-goldene Gitarre liegt in knallrosa Plüsch, eingefasst in rehbraunes Kunstleder. Ich musste erst lachen, aber irgendwie ist es schon wieder cool. Da ein Koffer kein Instrument ist, gibt es keinen Abzug.

Alles in allem verdiente 5 Sterne!

Und nun heißt es wieder Verstärker an und Franny Beecher-Soli erklingen lassen. Rock around the clock!
