I bought this guitar off of eBay for about $450. I wanted it because I'd heard a lot about it and because it was so BEAUTIFUL.

First off, I must say that this is the best sounding guitar I've ever played. With reverb and light distortion, oh my gosh, it's so awesome. The sound is very rich and full, a tribute to the extra humbucker. Not only is it beautiful, but it has wonderful sound to back it up.

Hmm.....I can't think of anything for my self, but if you want to play a lot of lead, I would get the Les Paul Custom, and not the Black Beauty. Why? The extra pickup gets in the way of the pick if you play lead, but on the LP Custom, it's the exact same thing, except that the third pickup isn't there.

Like all Gibsons and Epiphones, it's build like a tank. The one I got had a few dings in it, but you can barely see them. The quality of this guitar surpasses anything except its Gibson counterpart.


Bottom line, this is a wonderful guitar for someone who wants to play rhythm, but not lead. If you want lead, go with the LP Custom. One thing I have noticed is that the gold hardware looses its finish after a long period of time. Just a thought....
