This guitar is exceptional value for money. Epiphone make a lot of different Les Paul style guitars but this one is just about top of the range and it shows. The guitar has a maple topped mahogany body and a mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard just like the expensive USA built Gibsons, many of the cheaper Epi LPs are made from other woods and thus struggle to get that authentic Les Paul tone. The genuine Gibson USA made pickups on thi model sound great and the coil tap facility makes the guitar very versatile. The guitar was well set up and ready to play straight out of the case which was included in the price. Just a couple of minus points from my point view; although the locking tuners work well they look ugly and I'll probably change them sometime soon, the strap locks really don't work very well and I've replaced them with Schallers. I also own a USA built Gibson Les Paul and think that this guitar is a close as you'll get to a genuine Gibson Les Paul without buying the real thing at a telephone number price.
This LP Tribute Plus is a beatiful looking guitar with his very well finished faded flamed top. The woods seems to be of vey high quality. Just because some minor flaws, like a bad painting finish in one side of the head, I can't give it 5 stars in the quality department. The guitar is quite heavy but confortable to play thanks to his "slim taper" neck. With the Grover locking tuners, it's easy to replace strings and the tuning is very stable. With the Gibson USA 57 Clasic pickups, it has a superb classic PAF tone with a little more gain in the bridge and has a nice sustain. Comes factory equipped with other quality materials, like the USA Switchcraft toggle and the Mallory tone capacitors. The option of series or parallel pickup switching with the push-pull pots gives even more versatility. One thing I don't like are the Epiphone StrapLoks, so I don't use them. The hard-case looks and feels ok and is another nice bonus.
