The handle is very nice, but very round! (For large hands) is what a Les Paul:)

The ergonomics are very good, ASSE little heavy but its going.

Access to acute, more or less comfortable (again this is a Les Paul)

Sound much better than the rest of Epiphone, due to the violin better and better pickups, electronics Deplus is the same as the "real" Gibson is perfect.


Exceptional sound for Epiphone! I play Guns n 'Roses, Velvet Revolver, Slash, but also hard rock like Alice Cooper, Metallica. I must say it is perfect for sound ranging from blues to hard rock, then for the bulk metal is more limited.


I use it for 6 months and I gained a very good value for money. And the box is beautiful! ;-)
I highly recommend this guitar but you hurry production is limited ^ ^
