This is a Goth guitar that if you were any metal band or really like dark style of music and you probably would lean towards this instrument. It has a very dark brew rich black satin finish on the body. So therefore it just comes across very Gothic and macabre looking. Probably the reason why they used to word Goth as part of the model name for this instrument. It just gives off this mystique of dark cynicism. The tone remains there if you are after a thick mahogany based tone. The finished doesn't hide any of the guitars natural sound and feel.

This guitar has a nice warm thick tone especially when you use a nice medium to high gain amplifier. If you use a clean amplifier than this guitar really won't sound as good as it naturally can any high gain amp setting. The tone is very robust and driving. It's very easy to do a palm mute with a good thick rhythmic tone. This is a guitar that features Alnico V humbuckers to you get a really bright and brilliant sound from your pickups. Overall this is a cool guitar if you're really after that dark, mysterious Gothic look. Otherwise this is exactly same instrument as any other Epiphone LP, but it also comes in assortment of different colors and styles.


You can find his guitar for right around $350. That is a great price for someone is looking for an alternative or on a budget and doesn't want to pay the prices of a new Gibson Les Paul. Overall this is a cool guitar and I recommended to anyone who is looking for a sound that is particular to there rich mahogany Les Paul type tone.
