“epiphone les paul standard review”

Written on: 04/05/2012

great guitar, beautiful finish. plays well, excellent action and sustain. i've done a side by side sound comparison with a '72 gibson les paul, and other than overall output level(that gibson was LOUD!) the tonal qualities were remarkably similar. HOWEVER. the electronics blow. my pickup switch doesn't work properly in the middle position, neither do the volume knobs, so something is miswired, though i can't see what it is. first thing on my agenda is to replace all the guts with some quality… Read Full Review

My guitar teacher has one but he hasn't played it in a while, i think he's kinda mad at it for some reason. I think im gonna get one or a peavey SC-1. They're both really cool guitars, im just tryin to find one thats not to expensive, but sounds good in every song i play.

“Great value guitar”

Written on: 11/07/2011 by andrewSurf (1 review written)

This guitar has a great, versatile sound and looks fantastic with it's birds-eye maple veneer. The only flaws lie in the construction (four pieces of glued mahogany for the body and a bolt on neck), but that's hardly a consequence considering the low-end cost. It has a slightly shorter scale and wider fretboard than I'm used to, but that's my background of playing tele's and strats… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/04/2011

I got this guitar 2 weeks ago and irs pretty awesome. the only problem is that the volume/tone knobs are all bent and the nut on the input jack keeps coming off which questions the craftmanship. overall i dont really care about that because it sounds great and looks awesome. if you ever get one get the plus model with a vintage cherryburst finish… Read Full Review

So... 1 out of 15 guitars was ok..... sounds like a BIG quality control issue to me.... I'm a luthier by profession, and a guitar teacher by calling.... and i am a partner in a music shop.... We walked away from Gibson/Epiphone after they sent us goods infested with woodworm, then re-sent the same goods as "replacement units". These famous names used to be something to aspire to.. let quality speak for itself - the brand means NOTHING.

Written on: 17/02/2010

I have played a few guitars in my, albeit very short, time (I'm 16). I have been playing for 8 years, and have played my fair share of guitars. The Epiphone Les Paul Standard stands out for me, among others, because of its relative inexpensiveness, but the quality-for-money value that is immediately apparent after you open the box. The sounds is great, pickups don't pack as much of a punch as the Gibson, but they're great. Finish is superb, I would expect it to last for a long time. Tuning… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/12/2009

I don't know if I stumbled upon some worse piece but my Epi just WON'T stay in tune. My friend has Epi LP Custom and it stays in tune perfectly. My love looks beautiful and plays nice but again, my friend's custom plays much more comfortable. It's weird really I've had Epi LP Special (low budget series) and it was way more comfortable for playing, I was able to set strings very low without them making noises and drilling the frets...I love her though.. she has some flaws :)

Written on: 01/09/2009

I notice a lot of bloggers compare Epiphone guitars to Gibsons.
Well, I have been around the block when it comes to guitars, there is NO differance between a Epiphone and a Gibson, apart from the ego attatched to those who insist Gibsons are better guitars, bull !
I have played many Gibson guitars, Fenders, Squires, Ibanez, Epiphones, and so the list goes on.
I have found amungst ALL of the affore mentioned guitars and many more that you get a wide variation of both sound and quality, NO two… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/03/2009

The overall sound of the Epiphone Les Paul Standard guitar is decent. I never been a fan of epiphones because in all of my experiences with them they have always lacked something for me their overall sound sounded a little hollow and bland to me. It didnt have a distinct tone that caught my attention but this epiphone is probably the best one ive played so far. The neck has an odd feel to it. I think you can get a better quality sounding guitar for the same price if not cheaper than this… Read Full Review

One of the best guitars around (considering: price tag) you get a good old LP tone and good feel. This the "players guitar". Not recommended for people who people who buy and not use the guitar for long. Wonderful guitar! You want a great guitar for a dead cheap price, this is it! Only bad point is the tuners, change them and you'll be good… Read Full Review

I agree with this review because owning 7 Les Pauls out of totally 21 guitars shows how much I enjoy Pauls and I can fully understand what the reviewer meant. Kind regards from Germany...
