TheEnforcer, 06.06.2017
Bought this guitar a couple of years ago as I was in need of a back-up guitar. Since I'm both a touring and recording musician, reliability is very important to me and according to specifications it seemed to deliver. After spending some time on various forums and checking YouTube videos, I decided to order one and see for myself. I always wanted a Les Paul style guitar anyway, so this seemed as a good time to fulfill that particular wish.
My first impressions were very positive, the guitar arrived in tune, the factory set-up was actually very good, much to my surprise, as some of the more expensive guitars I bought through the years had terrible factory settings.
Upon further inspection all seemed well, the finish was great, the black/white binding was perfectly installed, no glue marks or visible spliced parts which usually occur on sharp curves on cheaper guitars. The guitar resonated very well unplugged and the tuners held pretty well, apart from the usual G string problems (but that's a fairly well known problem with LP style guitars).
Sadly, my enthusiasm dropped rapidly a few days latter; Pickups were advertised as Gibson, but were very noisy and had a lot of feedback, which turned out to be a bad "wax" job. I fixed the problem quite easily as I do have some experience in potting pick-ups, but for a beginner or someone who is not familiar with more advanced guitar maintenance this could be an extra expense.
After that was fixed i started noticing that the gold plating on the hardware was beginning to come off, and soon enough the bridge, the tailpiece, the pickups and the tuners were exposed, with just an occasional golden flake still holding here and there. Once the metal was exposed it started to oxidize and there were green spots everywhere on the hardware which required quite a lot of regular cleaning.
Despite all that, the guitar itself played pretty well, and once the pick-ups were properly potted, it sounded really good. There was a nice hefty weight to it, the neck felt great and it held up really nicely on the couple of shows I used it at.
Ironically, this would have been a great guitar if the quality of the hardware was just a bit better. With a couple of upgrades this would have been a great guitar, but I did not want to bother with it and sold it to someone who was comfortable putting the necessary time and money into it.
For about the same price I ended up buying a Faber and never looked back. Not a totally bad guitar, but you can get a lot of better alternatives for about the same price.

Excellent Guitar

bwepi, 20.06.2018
Excellent instrument, with the push pull pots there are a wide variety of sounds available from thin and sparkly Strat-style tones to full throated, face melting metal tones from the stock humbuckers.

The neck profile is slim and a bit flatter than I'm used too (ESP player over here!), but it feels great and fits easily in the palm of my hand.

I would say this is comparable to a Gibson Les Paul Studio in terms of feel, quality (if not superior!), and weight. I had a slight blemish in the neck finish near the headstock, but that is me being picky.

All in all, this feels and plays like a professional level instrument so don't be put off by the headstock having Epiphone across the top instead of Gibson, having owned numerous brands including a "real" Les Paul, this is definitely up there! If there was anything I'd swap out it would be the ProBucker pickups, I'm an active pickup fan, and whilst these are more than adequate for this instrument, I prefer the sound of an active pickup.
