Best guitar for the price

By

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain Top Electric Guitar:

I love this guitar. I have the cherry burst finish and it is beautiful. I have had zero problems with it for the year and a half that I've owned it. It remains in tune even with heavy bending solos; it is not neck heavy as with most guitars in this price range which is great for performance settings. As typical with all Les Pauls it has a lot of sustain. The bridge pickup is bright and crisp and the neck pickup gives you really thick bass rich tone. It is a heavy guitar so I would suggest some strap locks and a durable strap unless you like to drop your guitar in the middle of a song.

Awesome Guitar

By

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain Top Electric Guitar:

Owned this one for about 2 years, awesome guitar. I got it in Ebony, and it is beautiful. Put together well, everything looks good, paint, fret board, binding, etc. I gave it 4 stars because of the pick-up selector switch being cheap, and because I had to replace a couple of the tuners. Epiphone was cool about it though, I called customer service and they sent me replacement tuners no charge and I replaced them myself. Overall, this guitar looks great, sounds awesome, nice fat tone, and feels good, nice and substantial like a Les Paul should. I would definitely buy another one. Well worth the money.

AWESOME GUITAR!!!!!!!

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain Top Electric Guitar:

I ordered this guitar about a month ago and I'll be the first to tell ya, it's an awesome guitar. I've got a squire strat, a b.c. rich kkv that I got at a pawn shop, and a ibanez acoustic, and this thing kills them all! I can get any sound from metal to punk to jazz to any other kind of style you can think of. It is an amazing guitar at an affordable price. The only MINOR problem I had with it was that it had a little fret buzzing, but I can't tell when I plug it in.The finish is amazingly beautiful and shiny. If you can't afford or just don't have time to save up for a Gibson, get this guitar.

Pretty Sweet

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain Top Electric Guitar:

I now own this guitar..and let me tell you...it can shred..I've played alot of other brands, but this les paul is the one of the best guitars I've played. It has a load of tone. When you play it with distortion it sounds wicked!!! It sounds like a guitar that would cost twice as much as this one! It also sounds good on a clean channel...not to trebley not to bassy..just right! I don't think I want to play another brand. This guitar will always be my #1 onstage guitar!!!!!!!!!! if you are just starting out playing or a seasoned guitarist like me, it is the perfect guitar..doesn't matter what genre you play, it is just an all around good guitar to play.

Completely Stunned

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain Top Electric Guitar:

I went to a local music store looking for a good Les Paul. I saw an entire rack of these beauties and decided to try one. The tuners were flawless, the finish was breath-taking, and the pickups provided great tone for virtually every genre of music. I plugged into a Fender Frontman 15g when I tried this out, and dude, did it sound good! I think you know what I did after that... I bought it!

Best Guitar I have!

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain Top Electric Guitar:

This guitar is great. This guitar is good for beginners as well as intermediate players. This guitar has great looks, beautiful tone, and unmistakable beauty. From a distance is seems to be a great guitar, but up close itÆs a guitar goddess. This guitar is so fun to play and is great for almost any style of music. This guitar is really fun to play fast on and you know you are getting a quality guitar when you buy this. And the price is great as well. Instead of going out and getting a Gibson, you should try this out first because I think itÆs just as nice as a Gibson (in some ways). This guitar also sounds great with the Dunlop original crybaby wah wah pedal.

Real Les paul for less than $400

By 

from NJ

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain Top Electric Guitar:

I'm just after buying one , and I have to tell you : its pretty awsome. The neck is fashioned like Gibson's 1960's Les Pauls. fast low action , powerfull clean tone , fat overdriven power , excellent in the top-end. Only complaint realy is that it doesn't have too much bite (twang), but you don't but a Les Paul for twang. Can't ask for more than that. PLus the black finish is awsome ( especially with the tan pick-guard and bindings).

Close as it gets to perfect.

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain Top Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar in Dec 2005 for Christmas. After a month of playing with this, and I found out a lot of information about comparing between Gibson Les Paul and Epiphone Les Paul. While looking for information, I found this website and saw my guitar here, so I had to post a review. First I have to say, what a buy, when I saw this with a perfect black finishing I was already sold, but as I tried it out in the back room and played it on a nice 30 Watt Spider II amp (same one I have at home), I was blown away, and the price was simply amazing. I've played for a month now and I maybe wrong, but from everything I've seen in the past month of playing with this guitar almost constantly, everyday, this guitar is sturdy, light weight (compared to other Les Pauls such as the Gibson), smooth look and feel(thinner neck, and lighter less dense wood), and sounds absolutely perfect, even for the stock pickups. I could complement this guitar all day, but I'll just cut to the con, the one and only problem I see with this guitar is a slight buzzing of the low E string on the first few frets, but this doesn't effect the sound from the amp, so it's fine, hardly noticeable when playing. Thats it, the only problem, if you wanna play folk, blues, hard rock, or metal, this guitar can do it all. Just to clear some of those wondering about the difference between Epiphone and Gibson Les Pauls, difference is manufacturing. They are very different, Gibsons a company in the US that is made for quality and not quantity, Epiphone is a company in Korea that made these in mass productions,for quantity, but this doesn't mean it's bad. Both are hand made by the way. For the much cheaper price, different wood, and different manufacturing, this guitar is worth the buy, I recommend it for anyone who wants the Gibson Les but cant afford it, 10 out of 10.

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain Top Electric Guitar:

So I got this guitar for Christmas last year, but it was a burst color ironic for metal though. This guitar is great! It will turn an Intermediate into a GOD. It plays metal, blues, rock, jazz, and my friend conned me into letting his sister use it for country, but it plays them all flawlessly.
