Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain Top Electric Guitar:

Purchased the Epiphone Les Paul Standard Guitar several years ago and have not been disappointed. It's classic Alnico Humbucker pickups have a tremendous sustain unlike any
of my previous guitars. I use it for recording the songs I have written, and they sound
wonderful. Would strongly recommend this guitar to anyone looking for a guitar with a warm.
rich sound, easy playability, and great looks.

Epiphone Les Paul Standard

By Philip Greene

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain Top Electric Guitar:

I decided on this guitar because the cost of a Gibson was out of my reach. Much to my surprise... and pleasure, I just purchased a guitar that not only sounded great, but played great as well. It's a solid guitar. It feels just like a Gibson. The workmanship and it's set-neck help to give it great sustain and resonance. I play through a low-watt tube amp, mostly on the clean channel. All I can say is 'Wow!'. If I wanted some grit, it's terrific for that as well. All-in-all, I'm extremely satisfied with this guitar... to the point where I'd purchase another one. Some day, I'd love to get a Gibson, and even then, I still wouldn't part with my Epiphone!

Very Nice!

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain Top Electric Guitar:

This guitar is awesome! I have the vintage sunburst finish, it is simply beautiful.
The frets are all even, no buzzing or fret outs on bends. The action is nice and low with again, no buzzing.
The pick ups sound sooooo good. I am getting great harmonics out of them. Sounds just like a Gibson.
The binding around the neck and the body looks really good.
The jack grips the cable fermly, which I like so I don't accidentally step on the cable and pull it out.
The neck fits comfortably in my hands.

I could ramble on and on, but I'll stop here. Its a really good guitar, but everyone has different tastes. Go find one and see if you like it.

Great Guitar, Better Value

By Matthew Topel

from Undisclosed

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain Top Electric Guitar:

I am rather new to guitar, but after learning on a low level Ibanez RG, I decided to look into getting a nicer guitar. After tons of reasearch and playing several guitars I decided to go with the Les Paul standard, and I couldn't be happier. This is simply the nicest guitar that I have played. It has great action, a thick neck, nice frets, great hardware and fantastic sound.

To keep the review short I will only list the three best features of this guitar.The HardwareThe SoundThe LookOne of the things that surprised me the most about this guitar was the quality of the hardware. While this is often overlooked I can definately tell the difference between this guitars and other of a similar price. The Grover tuners are fantastic and reaaly hole the guitar in tune even after hours of playing. The "tune-o-matic" bridge may be even nicer. It allows you to easily make very small adjustments to the action and intonation of the guitar so that even an amateur with the right instructions can perform a rather nice set-up.

Perhaps the best feature of the Epiphone Les Paul is its sound. The Epiphone Les Paul can play anything that a Gibson can, and really excels at rock. I am playing this Les paul through a Bugera v5 amplifier with a BOSS DS-1 distortion pedal. This is a great inexpensive combo that I would recommend to anyone. Without the pedal I can get great jazz and blues sounds, and by adding the distortion pedal I can get any sound from classic rock to Punk, to heavy metal.

My favorite feature of the Les Paul is that its a Les Paul. The guitar has the same look that you can see from countless guitar greats and was favored by so many fantastic players. The standard model truly gives you that distinctive Les Paul look and sound all for a fantastically low Epiphone price.

Playing and loving it

By al-g_4Fz

from byron, calif.

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain Top Electric Guitar:

I've had mine now for 4 yrs and not a single problem. This is a excellent guitar for those who are budget concious. What I love about this Epi les paul is it has thinner body (lighter than gib) and not overly ornate with bindings. It stays in tune for the most part and can be played continiuous for 2 hrs before you notice the tylenol neck. The 60's neck is not as thin as I would like, but you sort of get use to it. Stock pick up was muddy on high volumes so I put in burstbucker pros bridge/neck and what a difference. clarity and power at your finger tips. sound is very rich as the gibson LP.

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain Top Electric Guitar:

i got a les paul a while ago and find it brilliant. i too had the problem of the buzzing, alls it is is the neck is too straight and so the strings catch the neck at the top. Alls you have to do is adjust the trust rod.

Close as it gets to perfect.

By W Wong

from BC Canada

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain Top Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar in Dec 2005 for Christmas. After a month of playing with this, and I found out a lot of information about comparing between Gibson Les Paul and Epiphone Les Paul. While looking for information, I found this website and saw my guitar here, so I had to post a review. First I have to say, what a buy, when I saw this with a perfect black finishing I was already sold, but as I tried it out in the back room and played it on a nice 30 Watt Spider II amp (same one I have at home), I was blown away, and the price was simply amazing. I've played for a month now and I maybe wrong, but from everything I've seen in the past month of playing with this guitar almost constantly, everyday, this guitar is sturdy, light weight (compared to other Les Pauls such as the Gibson), smooth look and feel(thinner neck, and lighter less dense wood), and sounds absolutely perfect, even for the stock pickups. I could complement this guitar all day, but I'll just cut to the con, the one and only problem I see with this guitar is a slight buzzing of the low E string on the first few frets, but this doesn't effect the sound from the amp, so it's fine, hardly noticeable when playing. Thats it, the only problem, if you wanna play folk, blues, hard rock, or metal, this guitar can do it all. Just to clear some of those wondering about the difference between Epiphone and Gibson Les Pauls, difference is manufacturing. They are very different, Gibsons a company in the US that is made for quality and not quantity, Epiphone is a company in Korea that made these in mass productions,for quantity, but this doesn't mean it's bad. Both are hand made by the way. For the much cheaper price, different wood, and different manufacturing, this guitar is worth the buy, I recommend it for anyone who wants the Gibson Les but cant afford it, 10 out of 10.
