Sustain, tone and price.
Bad fret job
Over the years there have been some inconistances in the build coming from Epi. Different hardware, truss rod covers, internal routing making some heavier than others. Mine come heavy, 9 lbs, 'standard' truss rod cover label, Grover tunners, bad fret job. However, I play for fun, Zepp + Lizzy, and can only blame any problems on my lack of skill. I would ideally like a 'Gibson Classic Antique' with the '57 pu's, but that's a dream. Mine is 3 yrs old and as good as new, no failures in hardware or electrics. I don't thrash it but even so you get the feeling it will last forever. If, like me you can't afford a Gibson then this is the next best thing. I would never consider playing anything else other than a Les Paul.
Tip, buy from a large reputable dealer, where advice is not driven by finance.
