Value For Money : Excellent
So for CHARACTERISTICS, trs is original: manufacturing Coren, alder body, mahogany table, stocky, round rather 60 'mahogany, 22 frets, 2 humbuckers, 3 positions, and 2 volumes 2 Tone ... Briefly, a Les Paul.

UTILIZATION

The handle is qu'agrable end of like style 60 '. Access in acute is worthy of the great Les Paul: difficult (but hey, it's a Les Paul shit). As for the body, the cross-Alder Mahogany is regrettable but cepandant advantage: the weight. I use this guitar also often for my repeated 'knowing that it is less tiring. Regarding the sound: The original pickups are true stews. Please note however, I replaced them with Seymour Duncan (JB SH4 and SH1 bridge at 59 'in sleeve), and is day and night: the guitar is thereby metamorphosis. Before, I let my Gibson systematically the important tasks (concerts, recording DMOS), now both use guitars have scabies.

SOUNDS

If you want a guitar that sound without going into debt over 20 years, take the Les Paul and change the pickups: With Seymour, the sound is just standard! J'apprcie also particulirment this combination (or only one or a Seymour Alnico II Jazz neck if you want a more sweet). This guitar is made for the usual style of Les Paul: rock-blues-jazz. And if you mount a game consquent (in my case 10-52), you also keep records funky without problem. I use a Marshall JMP 1980 and the sound is ... zepelinien (or ac / dcien, or ...).

OVERALL OPINION

I use this guitar for 7 years and I'm not going to get tired! She is beautiful, the finishes are excellent, and with the investment in good microphones, the sound is that of a Les Paul. As far as I'm concerned, I never like Epiphone Consider the "copy": This is the same family that Gibson, and I recalled that the Gibson Company also founded much of its fame of "great guitar rock'n'roll" on its Asian production. I also recalled that Mister Les Paul Himself has a long history in common with Epiphone and he sometimes plays itself on Epiphone Les Paul!
If you beginners but want a skyscraper that lasts, this is what you need. If you are a musician confirm that you want a guitar with an excellent qualitprix, do not hesitate, the Epi Les Paul Standard is an instrument of choice!
