Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus

Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus
Flamed Maple top. 2 humbuckers.

The Les Paul guitar is synonymous with Rock and Roll. No other guitar gives you the power, the sustain and the sound of a Les Paul. If it’s got Les Paul’s signature on the headstock, it’s the real thing… Accept no substitutes! Authorized by Gibson USA!

Feature:
This guitar has everything you need. A full stack of tone and volume controls, dual hum buckers, a set neck and an extremely nice finish. Looks awesome!!

For the price range, the cosmetics are very nice; the color and texture of the cherry flame finish looks really cool! The only minor things that occurred were with the pickup toggle switch and the strap lock post near the neck; these are common problems that occur even with Gibson’s. Both were easily fixed by using epoxy to affix the strap post back in place, and taking off the toggle switch and re-soldering it; both are fine now without any further problems. The pickups are factory stock Gibson PAF’s and they sound great; I’d never replace them unless they went out. You would tested both pickups on an output meter and they were “hot”, peaking at 15; that’s pretty good (and loud) for stock pickups! Click here for more features!

Quality:
The quality of the electronics can be improved on this guitar to level it with competition.
Sounds like a much more expensive guitar. Very clean when distortion is off, sounds really great when heavy distortion is on. Great with effects, sounds better than indie’s,  rock, fenders.

Sound:
It sounds pretty good right out of the box, but the suggestion may you would strongly replacing the strings and taking it for a professional setup, it makes a big difference. The wood is great, and you can get good tone from it, there are better Les Paul, with better wood and pickups for more money, but this should satisfy all players who don’t have extra money to throw around. Your guitar teacher will very impress with this guitar.

Value:
Best guitar on the market for the money.  Well worth the price compared to Gibson Les Paul. Check latest price!

Desirability:
Everyone who sees this baby wants to pick up and play it. Cause this is beautiful color (Wine Red), excellent finish.

Ease of Use:
This guitar is very playable it has a great action on it and the neck is perfect. It’s easy to get great sounds. But for beginners so a little hard work because once you’ve tried this you can’t adapt to crappy guitars.

Overall:
Great guitar, good price, nice craftsmanship, good sound, good looks, and for having fun!!! Playing in a band a little more serious about your music get the real Epiphone Les Pauls sound good look good can’t go wrong with them!

Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain Top Electric Guitar

Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain Top Electric Guitar
2 humbuckers. Maple top.

If you can handle everything about the Les Paul except the price, check this out. Engineers designed this modern classic with the arched top and fast neck of the best Les Pauls. It has an arched, figured curly Maple, carved top in faded sunburst finishes for that great LP look. And like all Les Pauls, features a solid glued neck joint for great sustain and stability. These guitars are built to 100% Gibson specifications. Since 1910 Epiphone has been building quality instruments and this Les Paul Standard will only enhance their great reputation. More Info!

Feature:
The features of this instrument are really good also the toggle witch from Trebble to Rythym and combination is a great feature that fits well with many styles. The hardware and components are perfect, nothing is wrong with it. It included a gator case which is worth about 120 bucks. It also included a free cord. Click here for more feature!

Quality:
This guitar is great, but has notice two things. First, the pickup switch seems cheap; it wiggles from side to side as well as up and down. Second, under the bridge, the varnish didn’t get applied there, and might you feel and see bare wood. Other than that, this guitar is great.

Sound:
Incredible sound!, the pickups are great, it has a lot better sustain than others. Being an epiphone, it still delivers that thick, gritty, heavy metal sound you expect from a les paul. Ability to play a lot of southern rock and hard rock and it able fits them both. The rhythm is nice for more bluesy sounding

Value:
For the price you can’t go wrong. This guitar is definitely worth the price, but the Les Paul 100 is just as good for eight hundred dollars. The price of everything on this site is so low. Click here for latest price!

Ease of Use:
It was very easy to get great sounds. Just turn it on and you will fall in love with it. Treble or rhythm whatever fits you. It is perfect for your personal taste of metal/ modern rock. Tone controls help to modify to your liking. Extremely playable axe that is very forgiving and the raised bridge makes it a breeze for soloing.

Desirability:
This guitar looks really good. The top is the best. Although it needed to be waxed, it is a good look. The wood grain and color on the actual guitar is 1,000 times better than the website does justice to it.

Overall:
This is a great buy for anyone interested in getting a Les Paul, This is amazing guitar for its price sounds good. Its looks great, plays amazingly!, has a real down and clear tone and is well built.
