If you've ever spent time with a Gibson Les Paul guitar than this guitar is not really got cut it for you. It doesn't carry the same feel, weight, and craftsmanship that a genuine Gibson Les Paul guitar would give you. It's more of a budget friendly guitar that is priced and crafted in such that it's marketable for more people because of the lower cost. Overall the tone is pretty much the same but just the feel and balance of the instrument doesn't come close.



Mahogany neck
Chrome hardware
Mahogany body
700T/650R open-coil humbuckers
24-3/4" scale
1-11/16" nut width


The tone is pretty much the same as a real Gibson Les Paul guitar. You get the same warm tone that you would get from the genuine Gibson Les Paul instrument. This guitar features two humbuckers with mahogany wood on the body and on the neck with a nice rosewood fretboard. So you can have pretty much the overall same frequency range within this guitar because of the similar materials used as a regular Gibson LP. This guitar can feel real nice with a high gain amplifier such as a Marshall or Mesa boogie or anything like that. You will get a really thick chunky type tone that will be very good at any hard rock, pop, or metal music setting.


These guitars are pretty inexpensive so you can find them pretty easily for right around $250. That is a pretty good price for someone who doesn't have a whole lot of money and wants to get this type of sound out of their instrument. I would recommend this guitar to someone who is looking for a Les Paul focused tone and doesn't want to spend a whole lot of money. Maybe Epiphones do have a nice feel and comfortable even though they don't feel like a genuine Gibson Les Paul guitar. Overall it's a good buy for someone that does not have a whole lot of money or someone who is trying to learn how to play the electric guitar.
