I bought one of these beasts about three years ago. This past spring I decided it was time to let at least one guitar go. I decided on the near mint Epi '56 Goldtop. I sold it locally for $500 with hard case and missed it from the day I sold it. Luckily for me this past summer I found one for sale locally for $400. This guitar had the pups upgraded to Seymour Duncans. The tuners and three way switch were also upgraded. As you can suspect, I was as happy as a pig in (you kow what) at… Read Full Review

Any guitar lover will love this "Les Paul copy". A coworker of mine played my 56 goldtop LP Epi reissue and likes it better than his 70's Gibson Les Paul that has increased in value so much that he doesn't want to play it anymore. He said he's buying one of these for a "player guitar."… Read Full Review

The Goldtop is an all round good guitar! Beautiful clean tones on all settings and a really rocking sound when you dirt it up! Great sustain, easy to play! Great value for the money! I play mine through a Marshall MG250DFX and its awesome! Buy one today! The only niggle I have with it is that the numbers on the volume and tone control are the same colour as the knobs and its hard to see where your at with them!… Read Full Review

I've been playing guitar on and of for about 25 years or so and I finally decided to buy myself an electric guitar that I really liked and because I couldn't justify paying the price of a Gibson Les Paul, the next best thing would be an Epiphone. I was going to buy a standard but I wanted something a little bit different so I plumped for the Gold Top with the P90's and I' so glad I did. I play it through a Marshall MGDFX amp and it sounds awsome, the combination of the two can come up with… Read Full Review

What you see is what you get with the Epiphone '56 Gold top P90 electric guitar - gold in sound and vision. A very authentic look and very good craftmanship. The guys in Korea nowadays are doing a fine job.
Compared to the Alnico pick-ups of my older Epiphone standard in black, this one sounds more crunchy in one position, and even more creamy in the other setting.
The neck is very comfortable, and the gold finish reflects in the lights really nice in changing colours.
This guitar looks… Read Full Review
