I would have preferred jumbo frets but one can not have everything that's already very good for the price!

USE

She reveals her beautiful flamed maple top thinner than the CS-4 and acastillage gold is sumptuous. The rosewood fingerboard is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen: no comparison with any dry or porous rosewood, those who cling fingers or are of a brown poo not presentable.

Here, rosewood fretboard is a nice dark brown that draws on Rosaceae reflections. The touch, it is very nice and gives a good impression of having been treated with linseed oil (or other, in any case, it is comfortable).

SOUNDS

Connected, leave the microphones understand that the dip in the midrange of the CS-4 is here offset by a nice bump that enriches the signal and provides a more modern and precise sound.

In his clear, it was the pannel Les Paul observed: it sounds jazz, pop.

Harmonics shout, the woman tone occurs saturated neck pickup: forward for the 90's rock and 2000s, as it also has a say in the metal.

It lacks a little something to play with the very large, surely the time will make its case. For the price range, this is exceptional !!

NOTICE GLOBAL

No standing ... well imbalance, how much? Oh that's it ?? Less than five percent ?? Ben voila, 310 Euros expo price (instead of 370) Les Paul that sounds and is very beautiful.

Let's be clear: I am a musician and guitar collector and I like good instruments that sound while having the mouth.

Both London Burning CS-3 and CS-4 that I tried are no longer small guitars and put a big fat kick in his mouth to Epiphone. By having the intelligence to be both manufacturer and distributor, the trio of 77 at Custom avoids making up prices but this guitar is 1000 Euros minimum. It's not very big, the small defect is that I still find it a bit young ... but who knows, grow older, they may improve and give the same as the legendary Gibson copies Fender and Ibanez was doing in the 1970s.

It deserves his little encouragement!

Custom 77 is a Frenchwoman brand, these guitars are Corenne manufacture.

BMOL a single plastic may sal and low game

USE

The handle is very pleasant (profile end) with access to acute irrespective can difficult but doable, small doses. Any fawn that do not have a tight solo gitares.
The main inconvaigant is the weight.
microphones sound good especially the bridge pickup is placed very well in a mix.

SONORITS

The sound is very round and warm, the neck pickup is a drooling, but the pickup is pretty prsis.
For amps I have to test is not tested on the amp very end but I pence it will pass a Wonderland.

NOTICE GLOBAL

This guitar is perfect when you want a Les Paul has a compar piphone is widely mieu for 200euro moin has compar a gibson it worth the model range mileu, but with a quality report irprochable prices.
The only problem is to try it.

Kungfucaster's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" I let go!"

Custom77 London's Burning CS3
Korean manufacturing very honest for the price.
Goldtop paint is very successful, high quality violin.
A little flat on the finish: traces of glue around the marks trapeze mechanical alignment, adjusting plastic covers and pickguard.
Nothing too bad, it does not interfere with the comfort and sound.
2 pieces mahogany body, set neck slim type type, tailpiece stop bar, 2 home P90. It can hardly be more accurate compared to Gibson.

UTILIZATION

I'm used to Strats that I was a little afraid of too much hassle with the handle of a Les Paul (I have rather small hands). Ben and not at all! It is true that this is not a girl but handle the wide profile and end with a fairly flat radius (12 "at first glance) is really super comfortable. A little tired at first, but now I enquille 3 -4 hours of repeats without flinching.
This is not the case for my poor lumbar! The guitar is heavy, about 3.8 kg!
Access to acute is not easy, I got caught more than once by the thickness of the heel (handle glued oblige)! You really fight to get a bend in the mid 22nd, but the public will reward you well!
The sound of the P90 coupled with the mahogany body is a marvel!
The sustain is huge like a good LP!

SOUNDS

Clearly, the bridge pickup has real teeth and body, the neck pickup offers jazz and blues sounds beautiful.
The P90 pickups are very dynamic, depending on the settings so it can quickly go into crunch if strong attack!
This being said I play mostly reggae and it's going very well.
Against by the crunch really is his playground, the biting attack the BB King until the red LED Zeppelinnienne, anything goes! We stay in a vintage spirit but what character!
DO you really sound clear, subtle, responsive to the finger and the eye depending on your attack with lots of body.
With a Big Muff distortion types, it loses against the creamy we easily with a Strat. It is immediately in fuzz but sounds very nice. It will take a RAT distortion types to keep the definition with lots of gain.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought OCCAZ in June 2012 for € 250! This is a B-stock so it has some small paint defects but frankly should keep an eye on it!
I wanted a guitar that complements my Strat and I serve as backup guitar live. In addition, LesPaul make me kiffer for ages but Gibson is not in my price unfortunately.
Well, I let her go! I completely fell for his sound, his look, his strong personality.
Unbeatable value for money, forget Epiphone!
Only downside in my opinion: the mechanical kind Kluson a bit cheap.
I just change them for Grover Deluxe, the poor performance agreement is a memory!
If you want a Les Paul without breaking the bank like that faithfully reproduce the sounds LP vintage, do not hesitate. It really is rare to find such good guitars at this price (about 400 € new but are readily available on the second hand market).

Vundaboy's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Super skyscraper"

Custom77 London's Burning CS3
My second guitar, I wanted something sturdy with sustain and I was surprised!

This is a guitar made in Korea if I'm not mistaken, the brand distributed by Lyon Custom 77. It's really a well made guitar, not an imperfection, a trace of glue or anything!


Electronic level, being a fan of metal, I have not been able to help change the pickups for EMG after 2 weeks and so I did not really remember the sound, but the pickups are really beautiful. It has 4 knobs, 2 tones and 2 volumes.

UTILIZATION

The handle is U-like LP, but type 60 '. Access to acute is limited because of the heel but unfortunately after a while an adaptation used to it.
Correct weight, with a wide strap I feel almost no guitar and is very well balanced (it does not sting the nose)
We obtain easily a sound!

SOUNDS

As I said earlier, I play mostly metal so I changed the pickups, the guitar and not flinch, she really has a good sustain.
With this guitar is especially the distortion, and very little clean, unfortunately, the emg are not good at it here

OVERALL OPINION

I have this guitar for 6 months and I'm very happy, this is my main guitar, it's so good that I intend to sell my other two guitars ...
As the LP, the heel is annoying and the long handle can be tiring.

I had a Squier Strat just before this one, I looked for warmer tones and grace and I was served.

The value for money is just excellent, unpretentious little mark!
If I should repeat the choice, I would do without problem!
