    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.

    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.

    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).

    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!

    - We get a good sound with the microphones are properly doing their job, they never sound saucepan. There is no point comparing them with pickups Gibson, SD or shop is a skyscraper at 300 and some Korean. In this range there it sounds very good. mine has its original pickups, the modern77. No need to change them, they correspond to the price of the guitar. I kept my money to upgrade a better guitar, I did that once sold there.


    SOUNDS

    - Are they adequate for your style of music?
    Not too much, I returned to the strats.
    -What kinds of sounds you get:
    what we expect from a LP. However, less fat. I have not tried to compare LP beaoucp therefore be taken lightly. Compared to qq Gibs LP I tried, the sound is leaner, the saturation is less accurate but paradoxically, modern77 installed above allowed me to discuss a broader musical palette. I have never been disappointed by these pickups.

    - With what (s) amp (s) or effect (s) you play:
    At the time, Marshall Haze 15w lamps + overdrive Maxxon and phase 90. the distortion was that the channel distortion of the amp.

    - What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?
    ca is getting old, I prefer not to say bullshit.


    OVERALL OPINION

    - How long you use it? :
    I kept it about a year
    -Did you tried many other models before buying it?:
    I had a Strat, guitars already tried, but never had LP and can not afford a Gibson, or of my choice.

    - What is so special that you love the most, least?

    +:
    * Without hesitation mics in this price range. all that I esayé in this range is only one of which it is not necessary to change the pickups.
    * Price: ca can not do too badly to the wallet. Finally, it was true to the era, now offering in this market is huge and they all are worth about, there are 10 brands / sub brands, which offer the same thing at prices equivalent. 3 years ago, it was not easily Vintage mag eg, Tokay and not Korea. Now this is common ..
    the - or BOFs:
    * Ben BOFs is .... blah, precisely. The problem is rather that competition in this market is huge, even monstrous, with features roughly equivalent. What will make the difference is the favorite, or the guitar, doing his job as a good tool, but not at all catchy, it's a tool like a hammer or a screwdriver .. It n ' nothing particularly attractive, once past the beginner's enthusiasm that I was.

    * Finish, without being deplorable, was on mine frankly questionable. all metal parts, tailpiece, mechanical, etc., are really scrap low-end (in fact it is) .. from the beginning, one of my MECAS had a concern and after a year, turned almost empty .. None was adjustable with the screw hardness above. all tightened down, they were still floating, short throw live ones .. my squier is 100 times better.

    * All of the walleye is acastillage was blocked in two months (which got me to make me a liar on the forums of fundamentalists brand, until I post pictures))
    * The inlays was very loosely glued which made the surface not flat at all.
    * Can not screw jack definitely. from the beginning I had to tighten every week. And yes, I know a screw jack :) ditto for sangles.une screws turned into the void from the beginning.

    - How would you rate the quality / price?
    Ben is the problem. They are not very dear, but not terrible. IN the end I judge pretty good, the concurrency is not better in this niche. But, no offense to the fans and their guru, it is not bad either. It's just a Korean product over a market already crowded.

    - With experience, you do again this choice?
    It is also a recurrent issue. the brand image is clearly degraded by the pack of fundamentalists who make poop nervous when you touch their idol, and the brand seems to have favoritism that prevent any criticism. But if we can overcome this negative aspect, it is not impossible for me to redo this choice, not for myself but for my children. It's still a very good guitar to start if you seek a full LP-like.Comme other. advantage over others might be the greatest near the AV Services and its reactivity. And since chances are there that do appeal, provided it is reactive!
    As always with this price range, you can come across as a good number on a scholarship. mine was a good number with a lot of negative aspects, but like other brands I think.

    One last point: I had this guitar there is more than two years. It seems that the finish is better now. My advice is therefore to cross with those who have made the aquisition more recently.

    A little disappointed

    Custom77 London's Burning CS3Published on 02/08/12 at 09:01
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    In terms of features everything has been said, except that the model I bought was version 2.0 (lighter, and some improvements that are given on the site Custom 77). Like many products now manufactured in Asia, and in a factory different from previous models, hence the term 2.0.
    The problem with these Asian manufacturing, is that one can come across a good product, or a worse, and that's what happened to me.

    The problem with these Asian manufacturing, is that one can come across a good product, or a worse, and that's what happened to me.
    The model I received had a manufacturing defect, at the handle, so be careful to verify receipt.
    Custom 77 has not been difficult for me to offer to exchange or refund, option I have chosen because other hand I found the pickups too modern, and especially the nut too high . Having also a Fender telecaster, I found it far less easy to play.

    UTILIZATION

    As mentioned above I found it a little harder to play than my telecaster, but more because of the saddle too high, especially for strikethrough.
    The neck pickup has an output level significantly higher than the bridge pickup, the opposite of my telecaster, and I had to lower it and raise up the easel, for best balance. Access to the treble is not perfect, but I suspected (though less on the telecaster). This version 2.0 is not very heavy, equivalent to my telecaster, which surprised me.

    SOUNDS

    The sound is obviously very different from the telecaster, but that's what I wanted.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I kept a few days, but I have returned, being disappointed with the workmanship and design (saddle, microphones), it is still somewhat be an interesting choice for the price (395 euros)

    The table Saddle flame does not exactly match the photos of the official site. The veins are darker and more irrgulires it gives a more "vintage". We like it or not, I like ...

    UTILIZATION

    So is the typical Les Paul, Access in acute is difficult, the ease of playing is sitting pretty average ... But we know what to expect with this type of guitar.

    The handle is enjoyable and relatively fast, or too thin or too short I love pais. The sustain is standard and we feel the guitar vibrating against his stomach when playing without being branch. The action is fairly low but still prcise. In the final game for the comfort of this type of guitar is good trs.

    Once a branch is even better. Mics us back a sound that did not used to hearing in this price range. The neck pickup is warm wishes to play the blues is extra. Acute slamming the microphone is easily found and aggressive sound that is familiar ... Intermdiaire position offers a wide range of sounds.

    SOUNDS

    For sound is exactly what I wanted. Branch on my Vox AD30VT I manage to get a range of sacred sound.

    From clean to sustain full of distorted sounds good slamming can play almost anything. I found no problem sounds saturated rock typs 70 (Led Zeppelin, Creedence, Neil Young) on ​​the simulation of my AC30 amp.

    I have not finished exploring all the sounds I have on this amp. But frankly it is amazing for the price.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I tried other guitars Les Paul shape in this price range (Epiphone, Jim Harley ...) and I have never seen such a good report qualitprix.

    I will not compare the guitars that are worth between 5 and 10 times its price first because I've never tried :-( and must be a little practitioner. For that price was not the level of finishing of a Gibson or the sound of a Gibson.

    However it was a really nice scratches, easy to play, which offers sound that has only rarely trs in this price range. MODEL The distribution of the brand helps to achieve this excellent report qualitprix. I think if we want to compare with guitars brand found in stores can increase its price by almost two to be in the same range.

    In short I do not regret my purchase at all yet. I've had half a score of days and I'm satisfied.

    Custom 77 is a registered Franaise, and these guitars are manufactured Coren.

    UTILIZATION

    Of mahogany varnish, hardware, finish, everything is impeccable. However, it is regrettable that appear in black netting sheet Saddle Flamm which gche a little Aesthetics.
    The handle, and overall, everything is identical real Les Paul. The trs mcaniques are well agreement.
    The pickups are Gibson and trs sound lgrement more powerful. The electronic is good, no surprises.
    Given the quality of all, I did not do too much concern for the future.

    The grip is exactly the same as a Les Paul which is an almost exact copy.
    Exactly the same as the original default: weight, too potentiomtres moves away and towards the rear dport it causes when you play the guitar sitting on the knee, forcing in this case using a short strap.
    That said, the handle is trs fast, the guitar arrived perfectly RULES (string height, microphones, narrowly octave) is one of the few times I had nothing o and yet I do t dealer in the past and I saw dfile ...

    SOUNDS

    In my opinion, having had the opportunity to use MODELS prestigious, the sound is excellent, carrment the height of the original. The sustain is incredible, easy dclencher harmonics. I mainly play blues and I can spend a aisment his jazzy seventies rock sound on my Marshall JCM 602. So I do not use any effect with. However, do not expect agus strident.
    The pickups are more powerful than lgrement "Burstbucker pro" who quipent the Les Paul 59 (7.8khoms neck, 8.khoms bridge) against 9.6khoms 10.52khoms neck and bridge for the 77 Custom. What could be a plus for fans of metal.

    OVERALL OPINION

    At present, it is impossible to try a Gibson easily, thanks to the policy of selling Gibson Europe that deliver their products as achtent stores a certain amount (significant) of their products both qu'Epiphone Gibson. So that there is a fist in stores that offer. In the impossibility to freely choose their dealer and then to have the product CASC, it only remains that the purchase by mail, which is unusual considering the price of the BTE.
    So I chose to boycott the brand.
    Start playing for a long time on tl and I wanted to come back REFERENCE Gibson to diversify my sound in my concerts. I looked for a solution on internet and I stumbled upon this brand, and not a contradiction n'tant prs, I bought it by mail, thinking that in view of the price I would at most change the pickups or mcaniques and make rglages. What does not surprise me to receive a guitar beyond my expectancy at!
    There was a moment I eye on the instruments made in Korea, and I must say they have compltement Intgr mind in manufacturing quality. This instrument can be professional, and the question it poses is that $ 365 Difference 4000 to justify it?
    To listen, go see the video I did with no effect, just with my Marshall:
