    Sourced (it says derrire the head) and not China as I have read on some forums.
    Humbucker pickups 22 frets jumbo.2 style Classic 57 '+ 1 Shadow NANOMAG instead of dernire freight.
    Volume 3 + 1 Tone gnrale and back, a gain, treble and a bass for a NANOMAG.
    2 output jacks: one for the Nano and a mix for 3 microphones.
    Stereo output 2 if possde amplis.C is gnial in sound.
    Rosewood handle Flat plutt Gibson 60's style.
    Mahogany body openwork table Saddle loop beauty

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is nice, the frets do not hang well polished fingers.
    Access in acute Les Paul style (is better).
    Because the body pierced and less heavy, the guitar tends to bend the head.

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is nice, the frets do not hang well polished fingers.
    Access in acute Les Paul style (is better).
    Because the body pierced and less heavy, the guitar tends to bend the head.
    The sound is good with the NANOMAG trs, trs velvety and treble are not screaming because of the positioning end (beginners?) Handle.
    Microphones magntiques lack a bit of grain I have no got.Ils own personality.
    The sound is good all the same but a change of microphones needed for my part, I think mount 490R and 498T pickups or amricains GFS "Retrotron" (price given on their website)

    http://store.guitarfetish.com/vintagestyle.html

    SOUNDS

    That said, the guitar is playable trs, good ergonomics and a good finish trs.
    I play on Kustom 72 Coupe 'and Kustom Sienna 65 is obtained and sounds good trs.
    Especially with the Sienna NANOMAG Electroacoustic.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I for 1 week.
    I love his look in Midnight Ebony.La table magnifique.L 'dor hardware brings a classy, ​​the back of the neck has a satin varnish trs soft.
    Magntiques mics are a little weak especially the neck pickup is missing some graves.Ceci says it's a personal opinion can be influenced by the fact that I possde a Gibson Les Paul Studio, which she has a neck pickup (490R) of the fire god with low buzzing.
    I possde a PRS Custom 24, a Fender Buddy Guy Sratocaster and a Gibson Les Paul Studio and when I saw the sale price of the Epi (589), I thought that this should not be the terrible stuff.
    Well I am surprised by the enjoyable overall quality of this guitar.
    Catalog Epiphone is provided a trs MODELS good finish (go see Les Paul Prophecy GX and EX).
    The report qualitprix is ​​excellent as the dlocalisation what is good for us anyway because guitar 25 years ago for the price and taking into account inflation, it was a poorly painted wooden board adjusts approximately and ringing false in many cases (including j'me).
    I do it again so this choice without hsiter (Prophecy GX can be?)

    For use, it is very well, with the default of Les Paul. NANOMAG little regret for the works .... battery but it lasts a long time.

    SOUNDS

    The sound is "versatile" is basically good but it's just good, nothing underneath, so I will be ending for the can to the Seymour Duncan j'hsite but also because of the style (j 'have the Sunburst).

    Interesting potential

    Epiphone Les Paul Ultra IIPublished on 11/06/10 at 02:56
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Special features:
    - The mechanics are of average quality. for Grover, they are a bit disappointing. they are not useless but could do better
    - The handle is wide enough and thick (compared to a C Gibson Les Paul for example). If the width is not a problem, the thickness gives some impression of "beam" in the hand (profile D)
    - The key is quite pleasant even if the finish of the frets along the stick is not luxurious
    - Neck and body "chambered" body mahogany giving it a lightness significant. Another consequence is the (slight) imbalance felt during the game, although the tendency to err on the handle is widely acceptable (I was expecting much worse)

    - The table is frankly beautiful: she truly respects the spirit of Gibson's Class
    - The classic alnico humbuckers are more, which is added a piezo NANOMAG. that is embedded in the handle end, as a 23 ° box ...
    - The knobs are: 1 volume neck, volume bridge 1, 1 piezo volume, 1 tone. they are really not great in terms of escalation, even a little temperamental to use. damage.
    - The piezo has a preamp whose settings are on the back of the guitar:
    3 mini bass knobs, trebble, gain
    - 2 output jacks: either use the combined sounds of a jack - a jack is dedicated to Hum, the other piezo
    - I have a bit apprehensive with the usual selector Humbuckers that looks cheap

    UTILIZATION

    as mentioned earlier, the hardware is of average quality but objectively it is justified by the general level and tariff of the instrument. We must add that the potential is pretty interesting: piezo output configuration, chambered body ...
    Finally, everything is ultimately correctable with a simple replacement of mechanical knobs, selector ...
    the configuration of the electronics (knobs + jacks) I think is almost ideal.
    the rest is Gibson: access to acute form of the instrument ...

    SOUNDS

    Here again we must capitalize on the potential of the guitar. the humbuckers are "not bad". I think that replacing the grave by an SH2 and SH1 is an acute solve their only fault: the lack of real bass and shine. It deserves to be dug. Apart from that, the behavior of microphones is good and pleasantly versatile.
    the body "chambered" is not obviously not a hollow body jazz type but it brings nice touches as the sound and the microphone selected (eg on an open agreement with the combination of soil micro severe acute +)
    in the same spirit, the piezo is an asset to exploit. it is always very interesting to use. although neutral in its tone, it provides therefore also a great potential.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Playing for many years on a Gibson Les Paul Reissue 59, I could not help but make the comparison. Finally, I appreciate the Epiphone for its general very interesting and undeniable potential. value for money is even better.

    UTILIZATION

    I really like the handle for access to acute Me I have big hands and it takes some practice and dexterity to the bender 22 ', if you're part of the brotherhood of garden gnomes will have to work together in sorry ...
    To ergo no worries on my side, I have a good big strap who keep them in place, so the balance of body / head is not bad.
    To the sound distortion I did a demo in the "media" is very large but precise, far from being mushy like some bad bill Gibson (Gibson yeah a new one at 600 is a bad Gibson).
    The piezoelectric contribution is therefore an asset, including with crunch or drive, it can be very telecasterien when playing with the mix of knobs. Clearly this is a good piezo sober, and not too typical, I switched on the 9 / 46 in cords to save even more crystalline texture.
    The original config is good, not exceptional, I put personal dp 190/191 Di Marzio, to win in the side roots. The side that makes him really sound, which are better balanced with the shadows, over the next chambered "dug" this spring bringing a better resonance and sustain good result.
    I'll try to do another demo in the news media here can.

    SOUNDS

    I made the funk, blues, rock and metal, it fits everywhere, even in the initial config.
    I play on a peavey lamps (super +), and JC120, with a multi fx pedal gt5. Always good including original config.
    Now I love all those sounds much more versatile than before.
    We must focus on what you want, whether it's big and fat the original config is ample for a small modification of vintage guitar making is necessary but worth it.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Yes I try a lot of models before buying my mind that I work in a guitar mag, the price / product is really good, and well above some stews Gibson who do in name only. This is also valid for the strata, it is better than a good Mexican U.S. low-end (one of ..... highway).
    I hesitated with the model 60 ', but I wanted to change my mikes chose this one, the piezo is also a factor of choice (I did not say but she is extremely beautiful) .
    Nothing but good.
