Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (247 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Product For the Price"
Sound: I've been a guitarist for thirty-plus years. I've owned a lot of guitars. Plenty of "really expensive" ones, too. This guitar is really great for the price. Seriously. As some of the other reviewers have noted, the Alnico Classic Plus(TM) Humbucker pickups are pretty hot (I can't track down the actual voltage but I'd say the bridge pickup runs 250+mV, anyway), but they are a tad bit noisy (which could possibly just be a result of the wiring (I haven't had a chance to shield it or anything, yet), which can be easily fixed (with the aforementioned shielding)). I'm probably going to opt for a couple DiMarzios or perhaps Seymour Duncans... just personal taste. For the casual player, though, the tone on this guitar out of the box is really, really great. Very crisp on the bridge and very mellow on the neck. Feature: Mahogany, mahogany, mahogany... I've read reviews here and there stating that this is a "neck-thru" guitar - it's not. It's a set neck... which is just fine and dandy - it's really solid and has a great feel to it. The "Killpot" is a unique touch - by pushing on the pot, it kills the signal, much like flipping the pickup selector with one of the volumes down, making for a nice little effect if ya need it, saving SERIOUS unnecessary wear on the pickup selector. The pickguard is a little cheap, but again, an easily rectified situation. Ease of Use: As stated earlier, this guitar is capable of great tone, the same great tone its big brother is capable of. Quality: Other than the cheap-ish pickguard, the guitar is really solid and very well-built. The internal electronics all appear well-done for an "assembly line guitar," also. Value: Honestly, it's a great value, even at a much higher price. Manufacturer Support: n/a The Wow Factor: This is a really aesthetically-pleasing guitar. The satin/matte finish is really attractive and well-done. The tuners on the guitar are Grover Rotomatics (look to be the midsize 305BCs) and not the "vintage" tuners that appear in the pic. That is a plus to me, because I'm not a very big fan of unsealed tuners. Overall: Bottom line - if you've got $2,500 laying around, yeah, buy the Gibson... but for this price, this is an amazing guitar right out of the box. Anyone worth their salt in the business will tell you so.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Les Paul for the price!"
Sound: The pickups are great, right out of the box. Mine has the '59s on it. I changed to my favorite strings and bam, that was it. The sustain on this guitar lasts forever. Feature: No special features needed. The goth look is great - matte black and black metal. Ease of Use: Plays like charm. Out of the three guitars I currently own, I love playing this guitar. Quality: Epiphone quality is top notch. After I bought this guitar, I went out and bought another Epiphone. I'm sold on the company. Great stuff. Value: I don't think you can get a better Les Paul for the price. Manufacturer Support: Never needed it. The Wow Factor: Matte black. I get a lot of lookers at my guitar. Overall: Overall 10! If you buy it you won't be disappointed.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
