The Epiphone Les Paul 100 is a good guitar for beginners, or anyone looking for a low-cost LP. With dual humbuckers and a bolt-on neck, it's a great value.

SPOTLIGHT REVIEW
VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: I prefer the Open Coils over the chome domes. Just a personal preference. I think they are warmer and at the same time sharper than the chrome domes. I'm basically born and raised on Fender but also like and respect the Gibson sound. I've been playing and recording professionally since the 60's. As far as Gibson vs. Epiphone goes, I prefer Epiphone. This thing has a GREAT sound and the sustain is fantastic. One thing that totally surprised me is that it sounds better on my VOX Amp than my Marshall Amp! Go figure! I don't do live work anymore but do a lot of recording and this LP 100 will get used a lot. Feature: This thing is put together very well. One thing I love about Epiphone/Gibson is that they include a LOT of printed material unlike Fender. It even came with a very nice cord and all the wrenches needed to set it up or change the set up. Ease of Use: Very easy to get great sounds from this. The controls are flawless. It came out of the box ready to tune and play. The action and neck feel great. Quality: Factory control could use some help. The strings were just hanging but that really didn't matter. I re strung it with a set of Di Addario strings anyway like I do with all my Guitars. Everything elese fit perfectly. Value: Very well worth the price. This is an excellent product. Manufacturer Support: Haven't had to deal with them yet but the info packed with the LP was very complete and on line warranty registration was a breeze. The Wow Factor: I LOVE the Cherry Burst finish. Again, just personal preference. I think LP's need a sunburst look. The Cherry Burst is really excellent. Even the darker parts of it let the wood grain show through. The gloss is perfect. Overall: I expect to be satisfied with this LP 100 for as long as I live. I may add more Guitars to my collection but this is definitely a keeper.

Sound: This is a quality Les Paul style guitar. The factory set up has a little bit higher action than i am used to playing. I do believe this makes the sound have more body to it due to actual finger pressure. I bought the Ebony LP 100 and it is a beautiful guitar. I play a good bit of rock and funk guitar and the pick up configuration let's me get a wide range of tones. Feature: The three way toggle switch is essential for being able to play in a smooth rhythm groove and jump up into a blistering lead tone in a split second. Ease of Use: I wish i had a Marshall amplifier to play this through but my Behringer VT100 works just fine for recording. If you know how you want your amp to sound, then just plug up the LP and it will pull you into playing it for hours. Quality: Everything on the guitar is made well and seems very functional. Remember....you didn't buy a LP Custom so what you SEE is what you get! If you treat this guitar like it's a Custom it seems like it will last long enough for you pass it down to your future family guitar players as something of value. Value: You can not get a better guitar for the price! Manufacturer Support: You won't need to deal with the company that made the product unless your order gets hit by a Mack Truck on the way being shipped to your house. The Wow Factor: It is a deal for guitar players who have a great guitar already but still desire that Les Paul tone for recording or for certain songs. You can get it here without paying those Les Paul dollars for it. Overall: I am satisfied with this product. I will still probably spend close to $1000 on a real Gibson Les Paul in the future.

Overall: Very well packaged, both from epiphone and zzounds. arrived very quickly. no blemishes at all on mine. vintage sunburst. string action a little high, adjusted, perfect now.Factory string gauge is .010 to .046. will use old one's for now. Beautifull craftsmanship on mine. Made in Indonesia sticker on mine. Had 1999 ebony epiphone studio Les Paul,but I was stupid and got rid of it. It was also an Indonesian made one that was very nice. This model 100 feels even better than it. Weell made ,low price, excellent bargain for the money. Order you one ,I dont see how you coul be disappointed.

Sound: the sound is amazing i have a crate v18 112 amp and with the perfect gain and reverb its sounds like god when i was buying it i felt bad o this is a cheap epiphone it must sound like crap i was blown away the tone the feel the look i couldnt believe it i felt as though i had a $1000 guitar in my hand it was perfect for palm muting and the rich sound if i was behind a curtain and i pick up a gibson and then the epiphone you wouldnt be able to tell which is which. the only thing that i dont like is the bolt on neck but if you think about it what if it breaks you can replace it you cant do that with a built in neck SO HAHAHA!!! Feature: mine just came in a box but they should come with a strap Ease of Use: the neck is so perfect mine holds tune for a while the feel of the neck was so great if i could i would buy another but in a different color like ebony im in a punk rock band and my friend has a strat and it doesnt even compare it dominates im always yellin at him more distortion and tellin him to switch tone and i cant match the sounds my guitar dominates Quality: great and durable well worth over $1000 if you have a mind you would get this the sound is so rich it could handle blues, rock, classic, metal, hard rock, with the right pedal i have a ZOOM i could make it do anything the humbuckers are great and there is barely feedback, i dropped it down a few steps cause my strap broke i screamed like a little girl a was ready to see pieces and then get hit from my dad but no this thing held not even a scratch and later i dropped it againg i almost peed but again nothing its like its made from steel and it pretty light i think 10 pounds little more Value: welll worth over$1000 Manufacturer Support: i ordered my first one i opened it and the neck was broke now i was very angry but they have a warrantee and they told me to return it through the mail and they will send a new one now the next day i got home from school and i had not sent it back yet though there was another box on my porch they sent another one in a day before i sent the first one back it was crazy i was twice as happy!!! The Wow Factor: if you have a brain and some money buy this guitar it is they best im have seven guitars i have a Gibson ES 120T and it blows it away. dont be an idiot buy this one you know you want it!!!! Overall: this will last years i am putting all my money into this baby i am going to put some nice gold humbuckers in this baby and mabey a paint job

Overall: I purchased this guitar 3 months ago and have loved it ever since. It looks, plays, and sounds great. It was delivered well packed and in prefect shape. I have a Fender standard Strat that cost more than the LP 100 and it does not even compare. I would not hesitate to recommend this guitar and aZounds to anyone in the market for an affordable guitar. I gave the manufacturing support 4 stars assuming they will stand behind their product as was my previous experience with Epiphone, I have not needed any support from them thus far.

Sound: I love the sound this guitar gives me, the pickups are hot, and it squeals. The double humbuckers are magnificent. Feature: Well, its a guitar so y'know the usual guitar stuff. The only problem i had with it is that it is nearly IMPOSSIBLE to get pickup covers on. Ease of Use: Very good. The only problem is when you first get it, it is extremely easy to get this out of tune. Quality: One of the best guitars I've ever owned. Value: This is an absolutely fantastic value. This was one of my first guitars, and I still have it/gig with it. Manufacturer Support: Never had to use it, but I'm sure it would be fine. The Wow Factor: This guitar is sooooooo sexy. Just gives a nice squeal and bam! Solo! Overall: This is a perfect guitar. This could rival even the $500-600 epiphones. If they made a Les Paul 200, id buy it in an instant.

Overall: I will admit I was skeptical. I've had high dollar and low dollar Gibsons ( I'm Gibson all the way) as well as an Epiphone Les Paul Studio. Except for the 335s my complaint was the pickups. Always seemed to be lacking in something. Anyway I ordered a Heritage Cherry Burst. Guitar was straight right out the box, and I am having a ball with it. Plays really well, neck is thin like I like it and these pickups took some adjusting but I like the sound. This is the most fun and satisfaction I've had with a guitar since my 335s. Get one of these and you won't want to put it down. Playing through a huge Peavey Mace so this little guy can do the trick. Kudos Epiphone.

Overall: Hi folks . Reviews are not my thing but I thought i might drop a line or two on this Epiphone LP 100 . As the title states I was looking for less weight . I have an American Standard Telecaster I bought in 1999 . Its been waiting patiently fo me to play it for a few years now . Well the wife got me Rocksmith 2014 and out came the Tele . Now this thing is a beauty but it weighs in at around 22 pounds and when your not use to it it can be somewhat uncomfortable in a short time at this old guys age . So I started looking for something lighter . Why not check into the guitars ya see in Rocksmith 2014 . Ended up looking at this Epiphone LP100 which weighed like 10 lbs lighter then my Tele . For 250 dollars I figured it would make a good bang around guitar . What I got was more then I expected . This guitar is very easy playing ,lite weight and comfortable to sit with for a few hours plunking away . Even the finish is very nice on this guitar . I have that tobacco color sunburst one . If your looking for a bang around guitar this is one quality piece that you will end up not wanting to bang up to much but will love playing it . Well worth the dollars spent in my opinion . ( 4 star manufactuer support is only a guess . Haven't dealt with them )

Sound: I've played an electric acoustic for years - the Les Paul is my first "real" electric. I am in shock. I took it out of the box 6 hours ago and I've been playing it ever since. I have an old Fender Ultimate Chorus Amp that sounds better than ever. Feature: I just plain old love everything about this guitar. It "feels" like a guitar should - not too heavy, but with just enough weight to make you feel like you're holding something worth holding. If there is anything I'd wish for, it would be locking tuners. My brother has those on his strat and they really work well. Quality: Seems to be very good. It has a very beautiful finish on it. (Vintage Cherry) Value: I'm nuts for not buying a Les Paul years ago. Manufacturer Support: Haven't needed them yet. Overall: If you're thinking about an electric guitar and have a decent amp, you need one of the Les Pauls.

Sound: The sound on this guitar is the same as a LP Standand. Also it has very good sound for punk rock and classic rock. Feature: The pickups are good and the rythem sounds good when I play punk or classic rock. The pickups are good for the price. Quality: The quality of this instrument is incredible. My mouth dropped when I first saw this LP. It looks like a Gibson Les Paul but the price tag is not as big. Value: Compared to other items it blows them out of the water this instrument is awesome. Manufacturer Support: No problems but they need less exclusions with the product. The Wow Factor: I would buy another one of these LP if my broke or something because my check book is not big enough for a Epiphone LP Standard or Custom. If I had the money I would buy a Epiphone LP Standard though. Overall: I was completely satisfied with this productand I think this will last a long time. I hope everyone finds satisfaction from this LP.

Sound: This guitar sounds really, really nice. It has a warm, full, rich and overall great tone. It sounds how an electric guitar is supposed to, and then some. Feature: I'll give this a seven. If you're looking for some kind of starter kit, this doesn't have it. All it came with was an allen wrench and a cord to plug it into the amp. That's all I needed though. Ease of Use: I gotta say, this guitar is really easy to get a nice sound out of. A simple G major sounds like a million bucks on this thing. I personally find soloing easy on this, but my previous electric guitar was a real pain in the butt to do solos. So anything is better than my old one, lol. But it's really easy to navigate the notes. Quality: The quality is excellent. The guitar feels solidly built, looks strong, and it is strong. I just got it today, so I don't know exactly how long it'll last for. But after having it for roughly eight hours, I can say that I expect it to last. It seems durable. Value: The value is excellent. It seems like it was worth more than what I paid for. Excellent value, no doubt. Manufacturer Support: I didn't need this. The Wow Factor: It's beautiful. Let's face it. The look of a guitar is important. We can talk about all the technical features, but the simple look of this thing is great. I got the Vintage Sunburst, and I don't regret it at all. The only thing I wish was different was the dot inlays. But I saw the picture, so it wasn't like it was a shock when I opened it. Overall: I'm 100% satisfied. I've used zZounds twice now, and the shipping was extremely fast every time. This guitar came in 3 days, and it was free shipping. If the product got lost or stolen, I'd definitely make an effort to get a new one. I'm very happy with my purchase!

Sound: The sound is great. You get a great range of sounds thanks to the two volume controls, the two tone controls, and the selector switch. The sound is easily compareable to a gibson. Because of the bolt on neck you do lose a little bit of sustain, but nothing really noticeable. If your into classic rock, or any type of metal this is the guitar for you. You can get a crunchy sound, or a nice clean sound if you like. But the distortion on this thing is awesome. Feature: The guitar has everything you need to rock. With its great variety of tones and distortion. 2 volume, 2 tonal, 3-way selector, its all that you need our want. Quality: It will last. I have a beautiful vintage sunburst finish. Its looks could make someone cry, in a good way though. Its very reliable I have had it a month and nothing is yet wrong with it. Also its so sturdy that you could probably drop it down a flight of stairs and it would be fine. Value: Its great for its price. It should be worth at least 1000$. It brows the stratocaster away. Manufacturer Support: I havent had to deal with them. The Wow Factor: Its dead sexy. Overall: I love it and plan to use it for years to come. Rock On!!!

Sound: The sound of this epiphone is problay one of the best in the fleet of les pauls. The disadvantage of the sound of the guitar is the bolt-on neck, that is what makes the guitar go out if tune. Feature: I LOVE how the neck of the guitar is really thin so that it is easyer to play those really hard notes and cords. Ease of Use: All i have to say is that the guitar is perfect for anything. Quality: The quality of this product is perfect but the bolt-on neck. But i dont like how it shows vintage starburst and how the guitar color is black and orange, but the real color is brown and orange. So i was a little dissapointed. Value: This guitar really should be like 600$ but this is a great affordable price. Manufacturer Support: I got this for christmas so.... The Wow Factor: This guitar to me is a real eye-catcher and so far i love the feel. Overall: The guitar is just simply great.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: This being my first guitar purchase, I have nothing to compare this too, however I believe that this guitar is simply excellent in this category. It can hold a note for what feels like forever, even for a bolt on neck. The pick ups are very nice. I wanted humbacks for there hard rock sound and they delivered well, I wish they could be covered, but for $250, could you ask for more? Feature: As I mentioned before, you get two great humbacks, a 3 setting switch to toggle the pick-ups, mountings for a strap, and that's about it. All pre-assembled, of course. Ease of Use: Could not be easier to use. If you cant pull this out of the box and plug it in, I think you should be wearing a special helmet. Very easy to play if your a beginner. Quality: It feels really solid, even for a bolt neck. Its 10lbs, which is heavier then you might think. I feel like I could go Pete Townsend on this baby and it'll still survive. The finish on it is spectacular. Value: In hind-sight, I feel bad about buying this guitar. Not because its bad, its fantastic. I feel bad for Zzounds because I paid so little for such a great instrument. You could spend alot more and get the same quality guitar, as many of my expert guitarist friends have said. 100% worth the buy. Manufacturer Support: Haven't had to use it yet, and dont expect to. The Wow Factor: This next part is 100% true: I was in class at school today and was talking about this guitar (Mine is Vintage Sunburst) and showed a picture I have of it on my phone. As soon as they laid eyes on it, every single one of them turn as giddy as kid on Christmas day. Even several girls ;). This guitar is pure awesome. Overall: This is the perfect guitar for beginners. This was my first electric guitar, and I couldn't be more pleased with it.

Sound: this sounds so perfect, but i might not be the best at knowing, all i've had my whole life are bad guitars that cost about 100 dollars, but i think it is really good. Feature: I think this comes with all the accessories you need, if your gonna get this guitar, then you must already have all the other things, and you must be pretty expirienced already. Quality: This guitar is good quality. It is tough and easy to use, the ride is good, but i have sometimes had trouble pushing the strings hard enough during a solo. Value: This had a good selling price. I know some people who got this exact guitar for over $1,000. but this was really cheap, especially for a les paul. Manufacturer Support: This site is great, they delivered to me in two days when i didn't even order the fast delivery, so they deliver quickly, and ordering is so easy to do. The Wow Factor: I love the colors.They are all so cool. Online they might not look so good, but when u see it, they are all really awesome looking! Overall: I think I will be happy with this guitar for my life! any other new guitars I'll ever get will be a Les Paul. They really are my dream guitars.

Sound: The sound of this guitar is amazing! I play it through a Squier combo amp, and it sounbds beautiful. If you want to play jazz, pop, alternative, rock, metal or screamo,this is the axe for you. Feature: I didn'r odrer this guitar from zZounds, I got mine from Amazon.com, and it came with a cheapo-quality 10-foot cable. I love the tone and volume control knobs for each pickup, which enables me to play kill switch, which I've always wanted to do. Ease of Use: It is amazing how easy to play this thing is. I had never played anything in this style/shape before, I just wanted a Les Paul (go Slash, Perry and Page!), and when I got this, it was so easy to use. My only complint with it ias that if you're trying to play barre chords higher on the neck, it really makes you thumb sore from pusshing. Quality: Honestly, this is just my first electric, and just a starter 'til I get my real Gibson Les Paul, but it works great. The shop pickups are awesome, but the strings that came with it aren't so good. My high E string broke when I was just plucking around one day. I replaced them with Ernie Ball Regular Slinkies, and they work amazing. The heritage cherry sunburst finish is so beautiful, and another good thing about it is that the strap buttons are so wide, so getting the strap on the guitar can be a pain, but getting the strap off the buttons is also extremely hard. Value: This guitar is my baby, and might still be after I have kids. This thing is beautiful, great sounding, and it definately beats those stupid cheapo guitars, like American, McSwain or a bunch of others I don't want to name. The Wow Factor: Ever since I was introduced to Guns n' Rosdes, I have wanted a Les Paul. Once, my friend offered me his Art brand guitar for $80. I said no thank you, I got my heart set on a Gibson/Epiphone. I did have my eye on an Epiphone SG guitar at Musician's Friend, and I told my local music store owner that I was getting an SG. He ended up telling me stuff like "Get what you want....I hate SG's....It's your choice....There's too much weight to the neck...", stuff like that, so I changed my sights to this bad boy, and I gotta say, I turned out pretty good after all. Overall: This guitar is just a stop 'til I get my real Gibson, but for right now, I wouldn't have anything else.

SPOTLIGHT REVIEW
Sound: You can achieve, a lot of different sounds on this guitar as most review tell you. The double humbuckers are very good at creating a metal to blues sound. Feature: This comes equipped with 2 humbucker pickups, chrome hardware, and very beautiful body. Ease of Use: Very easy guitar to use, though it is a little heavy. Quality: One of the best guitars for it's price. This guitar is GREAT for people who are buying their second guitar, or even their first. Anyone can pick this up, and rock out. Value: This guitar is SO good for the price, it's a wonder why Epiphone has a great guitar this cheap. It has everything you need to rock, so why don't you give it a try? Maybe it'll become a favorite in your guitar collection. Manufacturer Support: N/A The Wow Factor: This Overall: All in all, this is a great guitar. Just because it has a lower price tag than others, doesn't mean it's a bad guitar. On the contrary, it's an awesome guitar, and for those who want a cheap but reliable axe, definantly go with this.

Sound: I've had this guitar for about five months and I love it. The sound is awesome, and it's really good with a Marshall 30 Watt amp. Especially the distortion, and maybe a distortion pedal also, and this thing sounds like a shredding machine. I love playing every minute of it and the sound rocks. Feature: I love having the four knobs so I can change the distortion, sound, and everything. I also love the rhythm and treble options, and when you move it back and forth slow then fast it sounds like a Jimi Hendrix song. It has amazing features. I also like the pick guard on it, it completes the look. But it would be cooler if it had the pieces of mother of pearl on the fret board. Ease of Use: I love playing every minute of the guitar, I've never had any problems with the guitar, I just sit down, switch it to treble and plug it and go on playing. Quality: The product was made very well. There are absolutely no loose parts or anything to made this guitar bad at all. I plan on using this guitar for about 3-4 more years, and then buy a real Gibson Les Paul. Value: I bought this guitar in a beginners thing, and it came with a 15 watt tube amp, cord, tuner, picks, strap and a gig bag. I bought it for like $300.00, but it was on sale, and it originally cost like $400.00, and I think it is well worth the money. Manufacturer Support: Never had to use it yet and hope not to anytime soon. The Wow Factor: My friends are really jealous of my guitar cause they have wimpy ones compared to this, and the girls love it. Overall: There's nothing to say besides, IT'S PERFECT!!!!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: For the Price, this guitar has great sound. Typical Epiphone fuzziness on the distrotion, though, but nothing too fuzzy. Sounds fairly fat , much deeper than I first expected. Feature: The Humbuckers are a higher output then the ones on the LP Special II, and a higher output then any of the lower model Ibanez or Fender beginner/intermediate guiats have. The only complaint for me is that the Toggle Switch sometimes cuts out when you change from Rhythm to Treble or vice versa. Its nothing that can't be fixed though, its just an annoyance. Quality: There are a few things I might change, but this is again typical of Epiphone. Its not a Gibson, don't expect that. I'm worried about that toggle switch issue until i get it fixed, but other than that, im not worried. It is pretty sturdy and its not going to fall apart on you. Just be wary of the Epiphone product, you have to do some tweaking to it to get it just right in the end. Value: For a beginner/ intermediate level guitar, this is a good one, Gives you all the normalities of a Les Paul, just take away the name Gibson amd tone down some of the Quality of a 1000 dollar guitar. But for 250.00, this guitar smokes everything else out there. Manufacturer Support: I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, never had to deal with them The Wow Factor: It looks like a real Les Paul, who wouldnt want that? The finish is a little scrappy, but its nothing major. Overall: I tihnk after a while, I might be frustratred with the fuzziness of the Epiphone pickups, so I might upgrade to a different pickup , but other than that I think i would be satisfied with this guitar for a long time to come.

Back to Product Information
Overall: I picked up this guitar at a local shop and played through a Vox amp for a few minutes then plugged into a mini Marshal stack and was blown away. I have a Les Paul and was shopping for a Squier Strat for my son when I found this beautiful axe. It was a gorgeous,deep,midnight black and played like a dream. It has the heft and feel of my Les Payul and the humbucks just howled the blues and made heads turn in the store. I flipped through a few settings on the amp and used the FX pedal and got a very decent rendition of Jimmy Paige and a soft styling of Hendrix. It plays blues licks like a pro and shifted between back up and lead like a dream. When I saw the price I definitely knew that someone priced the guitar wrong. I was floored when they told me the price was what showed on the tag. I played on....the neck and strings felt like butter in my hands and it balanced perfectly on the strap. I bought it and plan one day to give it to my son...ha ha. He is going to love it when he does eventually get it. What a perfect guitar for the beginner to the intermediate who wants the feel and play that only Les Paul can give. You won't be disappointed.

Sound: when i went buyin a new guitar,i found myself into 2 options the first one is a gibson standard,and this Epi. les paul , i tried both of the guitars.. and i couldn't tell the difference, it sounded pretty much the same! the only difference was the Price .. so i bought this one .. it suites every taste, i play in a pure rock band the pickups were doing it's job perfectly .. but hey.. u want to push this guitar to it's limits? I replaced the pickups with 2 gibsons 500T/496R pickups.. and beleive me it blew away the Gibson standard.. so 9 with the old PUs.. 10 with the Gibsons PUs Feature: the finish of the guitar is the best part of it , Herritage Sunburst.. it's ammazing, i wish it had trapezoid inlays..and the Les paul signature on the headstock.. but i don't regret buying it.. Ease of Use: i dunno if it's me.. or the guitar but i find it hard to lower the strings without getting a buzz.. but i guess it's me not the guitar! Quality: it's like a tank.. actually I droped it from it's case buy mistake.. and it slamed on it's front.. then on it's back.. i was affraid to open my eyes at the begining.. but then .. i was shoked.. there was Not a single scratch... and i do not beleive it till now! Value: i baught my guitar for 450$ ( i live in lebanon ) and epiphones and gibsons are really expensive in here.. but this guitar worth way more than 450$ , it should be somewhere arround 800+ for this price.. it's the best guitar in the market. Manufacturer Support: have no idea. The Wow Factor: actually i dream bout having a Gibson Les-paul Supreme , but this one is a les-paul too .. have the Les-paul Tone .. the look.. the prestige.. the original color of a les-paul , so i do not think that i'll buy a new guitar unless it was the Gibson les-paul supreme.

It looks better than Tele, it sounds beter than Tele, playing on the neck is better than on Tele's neck. OK. This guitar is not for everyone. If it sounds bad, it is probably problem of wrong strings, or the wrong hands of the player...

Sound: The humbuckers have a pretty decent tone with good sustain. Feature: I got the ebony model and the finish was nice. It's a lot lighter then my other gibson's probably due to the cheaper wood. I like the fact you can make adjustments with a flat-head screwdriver and not wrenches. Quality: When I got this gutar delivered the action and intonation were all messed up. A few weeks later some of the frets started coming loose. I took it to a tech and he replaced one fret and re-set the other loose ones. He warned me this was a temporary fix and down the road I could expect more fret problems. Afterwards he straightened the neck and set up the action correctly. This made the thing at least playable but it doesn't stay in tune good. Value: I took this guitar up to the lake so I could practice away from home. If it gets broken, stolen or someone throws it in the fire I'll live. You get what you pay for. I wish I would have saved the money for something made in the USA. Overall: This would be a good starter guitar. If you have the money, put it towards a better quality instrument. They never lose value and I would take less then I payed for to unload this LP-100.

Feature: i honestly love this guitars features,mainly because of the amazing neck it has,its just so easy to play with.but i wanted a guitar with the trapazoid fretts,but then again i luv that they r not trapazoid frets because i wanted a guitar that was different from the rest of mine,and i own a 1956 Goldtop lespaul,a slash signature gold top lespaul,and a lespaul custom.so i love the features on this guitar. Ease of Use: there isnt much to say about the ease of use since its just amazing,but what i can say is if you are planning on getting a guitar that is just mind blowing,but you cant afford a gibson,i would totally recommend this guitar to you,and the manual for this guitar tells you pretty much everything you need to know about it. Quality: this guitar is made pretty well,i love the nice,thick mahogany finsih on it,and like i said earliar,you will just fall in love with the feel of the neck,the only bad thing about it is that if you touch your guitar alot,and you like to keep it nice and clean,you will keep on having to wipe it off,and polish it (but not that much,only about 1-2 a year).so if you treat this guitar nicely,it might last you about 15-35 years! Value: this guitar is worth every cent u put into it!! Manufacturer Support: all i have to say for this is,if you need support or any stuff like that,just call up Epiphone,and they will handle the rest! The Wow Factor: seriously,how the heck would you not want this guitar! its awesome! Overall: This guitar will be worth everything that you put into it,i would recommend this guitar to everyone i possibly know,its just that amazing.and it even looks cool if you take off the pick guard!

Sound: THIS GUITAR HAS ONE OF THE BEST SOUNDS EVER!!!!!! The rythym pickup ruins it to make it 10 out of 10. Ease of Use: Its SOOOO easy to get from a very LOOOOOW sound to a pitchy and screaming voice!! Quality: The Humbuckers got brown very quickly, and the fretboard gets very dirty easily! But everything else rocks!! Value: The Best price you can get for this guitar!!!!!!! The Wow Factor: The look is kind of cheap. Dots, a normal "typical" Jimmy Page color. And has nothing really SHOCKING about its look. Overall: The Sound is the best thing that I like about this baby. the least is the look!!! A Very boring appeal.:(

Sound: AMZIZIZIZNG SOUND!!!!! Even with the standard pick-ups it has an amazing tone to it. Stick it with an amp that can have versatility (i know, i spelled that wrong) you can get some pretty sick tones. Feature: The four knobs you need to make the sound you want PLUS a switch to go from rythem to treble and thats pretty much all that you need Ease of Use: Plug it in, pick your tone, start jammin' Quality: Sturdy, well built and can go through some tough stuff Value: It's only 250 bucks!!! Ya can't go wrong there. There are too many guitars out there that are more expesive but yet, not as good of quality Manufacturer Support: Never used it, but i'll give them the benifit of the doubt The Wow Factor: GREAT LOOK! Some people don't like the pick-guard on the front, but that can be taken off it you want and it still looks great! I got mine in a cherry burst finish and it is sweet. My friends girlfriend was starring at my axe more than her boyfriend its that great! Overall: Great buy if your looking for either something to start out with but will last you a VERY long time. I'm looking to use this for at least 3 maybe 4 years after this. The ONLY problem with it is that the from glossy finish that is on it can scratch if your not careful, but simply buying a fitted case can fix that (not that expecive)

Sound: Sound is ok stock if you do not get a warped neck. Neck was twisted left to right.Not bowed. 6th string fret buzz when played open. Feature: Seperate tone and volume controls. Ease of Use: Cannot get great sound with a warped neck. Quality: Pickups were practically falling out of guitar. Again I will mention the warped neck. Action was high maybe due to factory trying to eliminate fret buzz. Value: There are much better built guitars out there in this price range. Atleast from my experience anyway. Ibanez,Yamaha,Dean, Jackson, even Squier. Manufacturer Support: Did not deal with Epi. Sent guitar back to Zz for a refund. The Wow Factor: Nope once owning it and handling it I realized it was a very shoddy piece of work. Overall: Shipped it back. If I kept it and it was stolen I'd buy a different brand.

Quality: It is very easily scatched and dented, also the wood is weak, I once was playing standing up, and the strap button just came straight ou to the wood. Value: This is great for beginners. Manufacturer Support: It took a while to come, and when it did come, it was covered in scratches all over the back so we phoned them and they said they would pick it up, in the end they forgot so I had to wait 4 weeks for a new one. The Wow Factor: I always have liked the look of Les Pauls, as they are very basic looking. Overall: The guitar is pretty good and is comfortable to hold.

Sound: No complaint here, it does sound nice. Just not IN TUNE nice. I threw a Duncan Invader high output pickup in the neck , gave it a hotter sound, but its not bad. Feature: eh. It feels cheap. Very thin, paint job a little bit flaky. Input jack comes loose, pots are plastic and cheap feeling. Quality: I'm too afraid to use this at a show. I have played shows with it as a backup, and am always relieved when i don't have to pull it out. This is because I cannot rely on this thing staying it tune, not cutting out when i switch the pickups, just all around reliability. Value: Its a good price.... for a cheap guitar, its cheap. Manufacturer Support: umm sure The Wow Factor: It still looks like a les paul, i guess. No block inlays, no pickup covers, but other than that, its a Paul. Overall: It gets a "D". CONS: Doesn't stay in tune worth crap, cuts out when you switch the pickups (sometimes, more often then not though), feels cheap. PROS: Cheap, looks nice, decent sound, cheap.

Sound: When I picked up the Les Paul 100 at Long & Mcquade, I thought in my mind "Led Zeppelin Tone!", so I really urged to plug it in and start playing some Led Zeppelin songs & such. When I plugged it in, I went and set the settings to what I would set them to get the Led Zeppelin tone, and then I started playing Bring It On Home by Led Zeppelin. I was disappointed but how I could NOT achieve the Led Zeppelin tone, on a Les Paul 100! The Les Paul 100 could not achieve a wide range of tones, and I was disappointed. Feature: The guitar had a pickguard, goldtophat knobs, chrome grover tuners, and a gold bridge / stopbar&tailpiece. I like what the guitar had came with, made it had the same stuff as a les paul standard would have. Ease of Use: Easy of use was alright. Like usual it was hard to reach the higher frets on any les paul, but for some reason, it was really hard to just simply slide/glide my hand across the fretboard, the gloss/finish would grip and stop my hand from sliding, so I would have to take my hand off the neck and then move to the higher frets. Quality: Not the best Epiphone I've seen. I found that the toggle switch was very loose, and jiggled alot, same with some of the tuner plates. I would say this les paul would be pretty fragile, but I guess that's cause its a les paul. It was lighter than the usual les pauls, which I really like, and the frets were accurate. Value: I am really disappointed with how expensive this Les Paul 100 is, when you can get a rock beast Epiphone G-400 for just 40$ more of so. I really had though this les paul could've been cheaper.. Manufacturer Support: N/A The Wow Factor: I found this les paul 100, REALLY ugly in my opinion. It had dots as the fret inlays, there was no Les Paul signature on the headstock, the finish was boring ol wood with UGLY red finish around it, they didnt fit each other, and the knobs and pickguard did NOT stick out. Overall: I would say, don't get this guitar. With 415$ You can get a really decent G-400, or any other Epiphones! I really didn't like how you could NOT get a led zeppelin tone, I mean man les pauls are supposed to give Led Zeppelin tones!!!!

Sound: Just received this les paul today and I have to say they are a 100% right.Looks just like a standard and the sound is the same.If you don't have alot of money right now "BUY IT" you won't be sorry.I also ordered the epiphone les paul case for it the guitar fits real nice and no movement but the case is about 2 inches to long.But the body of the guitar fits real tight with no movement.I'm sure you can find a case shorter so the neck and head fits to the end of the case.This is a very good investment for me until i grauate to a gibson les paul then I will order one that includes the case. Feature: no accessories included,great meterials used in making this les paul with great eye for details. Ease of Use: I'm just a beginner and have a long way to get where I can make the guitar sing the blues but will be there one day. Quality: Vert well made with very good detail was taken when making this. Value: very well worth every penny that i spent Don.t let get out but the guitar is worth more then they ask for it.

Sound: It sounds like a Les Paul. What isn't there to like? My only slight complaint is that after about a year of hard use the bridge pickup will sometimes get quiet far a few seconds. This happens maybe once every fifty uses. No big problem. I was originally planning to replace the pickups anyway, but this has great sound so I won't. Feature: It's a Les Paul. It has two volume and tone knobs. It has a selector switch. That's about the most features you're gonna get on a guitar. Ease of Use: The neck is super slim. It's so easy to wrap your hand around. For some people who have problems playing because of small hands, this guitar is perfect. Even for me, with abnormally large hands, it feels great. Quality: It's a great guitar. Since it's an Epiphone, of course it's made well. But my only problem is that after two months I had it the amp jack came loose, but I just superglued it. Value: Great value. It's just as good sounding as a Gibson, or even slightly better, plus it's lighter. Manufacturer Support: I heard they're great, but I never needed it. The Wow Factor: Cherry Sunburst looks nothing like the picture. It's really bright red around the edges and fades in perfectly to a cool yellow center. The knobs are gold, and unlike the picture, THERE IS A LES PAUL SIGNATURE ON THE HEADSTOCK. I took off the pickguard(because I hate pickguards on Pauls, and now it's a sexy beast. Overall: I expect to be satisfied with this guitar for awhile. I'm going to have to get the frets filed a bunch of times before I stop using it. I don't think I'll have to rewax it, since it has a great thick finish.

Sound: the sound is great especially for its price. it sounds just as good as my buddy's gibson les paul studio. Feature: 2 volume and 2 tone knobs are pretty much all any guitar player will ever need. Ease of Use: highly playable. the myth of it being much harder for harmonics on a les paul guitar is only true because i believed it. choose not to believe and you can do them fine. Quality: brother broke a strong on it on day one while i was at work... what a butthole. one of the volume knobs also loosened up and wobbles a bit and the A strings gets out of tune very easily. Value: it will last la long time. no matter how good you get at guitar it will never feel like an inferior product unless you for some reason felt embarrassed that it wasn't a gibson. Manufacturer Support: havn't dealt with it, but it was great for a bass i bought a while back The Wow Factor: black and tan looks pretty damn sweet i must say. i wanted white with a black pick guard to be honest but i will take black as well. Overall: good guitar, much better than my squuire strat was. oticeably different is weight than a gibson, because it is made of cheaper material, but it is also much cheaper in price.

Sound: I was pretty satisfied with the clean sound it puts out, with the chords coming out clean and clean solos sounding smooth. Wasn't very satisfied with the bridge humbucker for heavier distorted sound, but thats easy to fix with a Seymour Duncan or EMG humbucker. But all in all, pretty good sound for the price it is. Feature: Its a Les Paul, so I was pleased that it had the stuff a Les Paul should have. Ease of Use: I love the action on this axe. Solos are a breeze to play on this thing, and rythms are just as easy. Goes out of tune from time to time, but if you got a good tone ear, that souldn't be too much of a problem. Quality: For 260 bucks, its made pretty good. I got the cherry sunburst, and I was very satisfied with the finish paint job. Pretty dependable for how much its worth. Haven't used it in any shows yet, but I would definatley use this, no doubt about it. Also seems it takes damage pretty well. Value: Was worth for what I bought it for, and haven't found anything in its price range that could beat it. Manufacturer Support: Only upgrade i've done on this thing was taking out the orignal bridge humbucker and put in a Duncan humbucker in its place. The Wow Factor: For a person being on a budget, and it being a Les Paul, it appealed to me pretty well. Overall: I expect to be with this git fiddle for a good long while. I always supplement my gear. I will definatley wear this thing out, Les Pauls are just meant to be that way. If it was stolen, i'd either replace it or, if I could afford it, get a better Les Paul.

Back to Product Information
Sound: This guitar, as with all Les Pauls, is great because you can set each pickup differently, and then sqitch from calm and clean to fierce and distorted. The sound range is truly amazing. Feature: Like all Les Pauls with the whole nine yards, it has all the features you could ask for. Ease of Use: The neck is incredibly thin and once it's oiled up, playing on the 100 is a breeze. I really like the action. Other than being slightly on the heavy side, it's a great guitar to play. Quality: Everything on this guitar was fine for the first couple months, but then the amp jack started to turn and eventually it just fell apart and all kinds of knuts and bolts came out. I brought it into my local music store and they fixed it. For a few weeks, it was fine, but then it came loose again and I just superglued it, and it's worked since then. Value: It's sound and feel are the best of any guitar I've owned or played, and that includes many Gibson Les Pauls. Manufacturer Support: Support from Gibson is fantastic, so Epiphone should be too. The Wow Factor: In Cherry Sunburst, it is fantastic, but you can tell what they did to make it cheaper. The edges are rounded, which I like because it doesn't hurt so much, but it doesn't ahve any binding. The finish is awesome and I just took off the pickguard, it looks good either way. It would look really cool with zebra pickups, but it's fine how it is. Overall: Great guitar, my favorite ever.

Sound: Very good sound for a low to medium priced guitar... bought this for my brother as a gift and he is in love with it and says it is better than his higher priced (800 appx) tele. Feature: I've never owned a Les Paul before this and I have to say the features are very impressive. I love the treble/rhythm switch. Ease of Use: Very easy to use. Works very well with a few distortion pedals and wah. Once you get the fell for the adjustments it is easy as can be. the high e broke the first day, but it was fairly easy to replace and retune. Quality: Great finish. Love the cream pick guard and gold knobs. Seems very sturdy and could be a great instrument for many years to come. Value: A beautiful instrument with fantastic sound for a low price... you can;t beat that. Manufacturer Support: I have never owned a les paul but I do own an Explorer by Epiphone. I have never had any problems with the guitar but would expect them to be very helpful. The Wow Factor: The Les Paul has always been one of my favorite looking guitars. Also so many great guitar artists have used this as their primary tool over the years. plus the finish is great. Overall: I expected a nice looking but mostly average guitar. But I am happy to say that it is much more than I expected. Though it may not be as 'great' as some other guitars I've played it is a great value for a wonderful instrument.

Back to Product Information
Sound: the pickups are some of the best that ive played. Strong. Not as good as as the 496R 500T's that come on the Gibson X-plorer and the Flying V. Sound almost matches the Les Paul Standard as long as you work the EQ of the amp a little. Feature: It didn't really come with alot of features, Three-way swich, Stopbar Tailpice and Tun-o-matic bridge. Ease of Use: It plays really good. The neck profile is easy to play but it gets a little difficult to play around the 22 fret. I dont like how thin the body is compared to other Les Pauls. Quality: It has a great quailty to it. It stays in tune vey well but the tuners are a little wobbley but thats easily fixable. It is really reliable for touring. Even after thrashin on stage it stays in tune pretty well. There is a little short on the threeway swich whenever i flip it to normal or rhythym i have to wiggle it a little but its not that big of a deal. Value: It is a little much for the guitar but not much. You still get a Les Paul for under $699 which should be good enough reason to buy it. But still it's definately worth the buy. Manufacturer Support: I havent tried to contact the company. The Wow Factor: It has really good sex appeal! Other than the slim body. Im lookin for the chunky Les Paul body. Its body is around the thickness of an SG. Overall: This guitar will last you a while after you buy it, whether you use it for studio or live.

Sound: This guitar is great. I can switch from loud and crunchy to soft and non-tonal with the flip of a switch. It has the definite Les Paul sound. Feature: Well, it came with a cable, and everything seems solid. Ease of Use: It has a really fast action neck, great for sliding. The strings are nice and low, which is one of the main things I like about a guitar. It's much lighter than my other Les Paul. Quality: The finish in Cherry Sunburst is amazing, hand painted. It has a really cool headstock, and it does have the Les Paul signature. I rated it 8 because the input got so loose after a few weeks that it fell off, and I had to take it to the shop to get re-sautered. That was free and took five minutes, though. Value: The value is amazing. For a guitar this good, I would pay up to a thousand dollars. I have friends with other Les Pauls, and this one sounds the same, and it is lighter. Manufacturer Support: I've heard they're good, and I almost had to call them. The Wow Factor: This guitar is so amazing looking. The only thing is that it's made with one piece of wood, and has no seperate top. So, there can't be any binding. Some binding and trapezoid inlays would make it the best guitar in the world, but I can't complain. Overall: I expect to have this ax for at least another ten years, if not longer. I hope to go through lots of wax before this breaks.

Sound: Sound took me a while to figure out.. It might only be on my guitar. Butwhen i change from Rhythm to Treble only one of the pick-ups work. For Ex. With Rhythm on, only the neck pick-up works. All guitars might be like this, I'm not sure because I'm new to all of this guitar stuff. Feature: I bought mine blemished (it wasn't all that blemished to be honest just a few scratches on the back...) Its sexiness is very handy :) Ease of Use: It is rather easy to figure out how to use this guitar. It is not that expensive and it sounds great. I haven't changed anything yet, but if I was to change something it would be the pickups. They are amazing pickups, I would just prefer better. Quality: Hell ya! This is made incredibly! It is beautiful (a rather strange word, but it is.) There were no loose parts in mine and a great finish. The 'Les Paul Model' on the head is very attractive. Value: This guitar is freakin' insane! I would buy another in a heartbeat. Except I would buy mine in Vintage Sunburst instead of Ebony but I just like that color more... Ebony is a very attractive color and I can see my face in mostly all of the guitar. Manufacturer Support: None. The Wow Factor: It is beautiful as I have mentioned before. Everyone I have shown it to has just had huge wide eyes from its complexion. So yes, The 'sex appeal' is very good Overall: Around four years I'm guessing I will have this guitar.

Sound: Awful sound the top two strings buzz loud and play awful. I even took it to a local music shop and they said it was unfix able even after replacing the strings. Feature: It came with Chinese instructions and a crappy cord to hook to an amp. O and a pretty cool poster with like 50 epiphone guitars. Ease of Use: The overall sound is decent. It is hard to really get a great sound out of it though. My old peavy puts this guitar to shame in the ease and sound. Like i said, the buzzing on the top two strings is awful, making many songs impossible to play. Quality: Piece of crap!!! I got one and it sounded awful and the music store said it was unfix able. So I sent it back. The new one sounds even worse. I am warning you this is a total rip off and you're wasting your money if you buy this. Value: My old 100$ peavy kicks this things a**. It makes the epiphone it sound like a toy. Terrible value for 300$ Manufacturer Support: Epiphone is a rip off. They sent us two guitars that both sound awful. For 300$ i should get a guitar that i dont have to mail back twice. Not only were they unhelpful, but they didnt know what they were doing!! For example some kid answers the phone like "Aww man that sucks well i dont know i guess you just got a couple of bad guitars man". Then I ask if they could at least inspect it to see if its gonna sound bad and theyre like no we cant do that or its conbsidered used. Total Rip off The Wow Factor: The only reason i got this is because it looks amazing. If you want a guitar that looks good but sounds and plays bad, then this is the guitar for you! Overall: Not even five minutes. As soon as i pulled it out of the box, it sounded bad. Never thought it was a good guitar after playing it.

Back to Product Information
Sound: I have had this guitar for almost a year and the pickups are fine, I don't know what the other people are saying. Don't listen to any of those psychos. The selector switch is cool and I use it as a cutoff switch sometomes. It sounds great with a Cry Babay wah and Overdrive 1 on a Marshall amp. It sounds good with any recording amp, too. The controls are responsive and the pickups are really high quality. Feature: Well, basically it just came with a cable, as do all warehouse direct Epiphone models. Just so everyone knows, the pictures are outdated on this site or something. Mine(Cherry Sunburst) looks nothing like the picture. First of all, everything is now nice chrome, and the knobs are gold, which looks really nice and classy. It holds it's tune for a long time, and the string height from stock was perfect. The cherry color is much deeper and richer and it looks incredible. Ease of Use: This is the easiest to play guitar I have ever owned or even thought of owning. The neck is super slim-taper, so the action is really nice. Other than it being slightly heavy, it is super-easy. Also, the weight affects sustain dramatically. It makes it equal to a set necked Les Paul by all means. Quality: Mine lasted for the first few months fine, but then the amp jack started to loosen. That's an easy do-it-yourself fix. Only it continued to loosen after that. So, I fixed the problem with some Locking Super Glue. I trust that there will be no internal problems that I will need to open that up for again. Epiphones are very durable, I have brought it out-of-state several times, and it's holding up really well. Value: Definitely worth three hundred bucks. I have other Les Pauls that are really nice, and with this one I feel more free to just take it places, because I don't worry about it getting scratched up and never being able to resell it if I wanted to. This guitar is very dependable. Manufacturer Support: I haven't needed it yet, but I hear it's great. The Wow Factor: This guitar looks amazing. Mine was and still is now perfect, and I trust it to be perfect. The color in Cherry Sunburst is vibrant and the gold knobs add classic looks. I would prefer if it had body binding, but I am picky. It looks just fine without it. Maybe some trapezoid inlays, but it's fine to me, I'm just picky. Also, unlike the pictures, it does have the Les Paul signature on the headstock. Overall: I expect to be satisfied with this product my whole life. Everything is built well. If it were stolen, I would be sad for a month, then replace it definitely. Then I would get it maybe in Red.

Back to Product Information
Sound: the tone on the lp-100 is quite awesome.It sounds great even when not plugged in. The stock humbuckers are great but i would probably change them when i have the money.I'm not even going to compare it to any of the higher end les paul models becuz it is unfair so i'm just going to say that its the best sounding guitar for its price. Feature: mine came with a mahogany neck and body. but some come in alder. Of course mahogany is better sounding. the cool thing is that you get a seperate volume and tone knobs for both pickups. this offers you with a wide range of sound that you can control on the guitar alone.i love the neck especially, although its bolted on,but still it's smooth and fast...easy for solos Quality: the quality is good overall. i dont know about those people who say in goes out of tune easily. never had a problem there. i left mine once in its case for 3 weeks and picked it up properly in tune. I dont rely much on my tuner i know by now if its in tune or not. the one thing i would complain about is stopbar tailpiece on my lp-100 the saddles were sharp and i've broken my high e string a few times becuase of it. the knobs also are made of plastic which isn't much to complain about but it makes the guitar look really really cheap. Value: this guitar is definately worth its base price of $400+ but i'm glad i got it cheap for around $300 which was a "Sale" price from where i bought it. Manufacturer Support: never dealt never had to. The Wow Factor: it is indeed very sexy. People, i find, are drawn to the guitar whenever they see it. it is indeed very beautiful in the heritage cherry sunburst color which is the one i have. Ever since i began playing guitar i knew that this was the guiar i was going for. Never regreted it. Overall: i expect to keep this guitar for a long time. i'd never replace it for sentimental reasons. becuase i got it very cheap i plan on further customizing this guitar with all my extra money...let's see better pickups, better tuners, better knobs gold hardware. So much things i could do. i donnu what i would do if my lp-100 was ever lost or stolen. i guess that i would pRoBably replace it with another lp-100, but there would 10 minute period where i would mourn. what i love most about this guitar is the tone and the comfort. it is the right guitar for me. the thing i least like about it is the bolt-on neck. i could really do with a set-neck. But regardless of that i can still meet all my musical goals with this guitar

Back to Product Information
Sound: This guitar is my favorite out of all I own. The pickups give you a wide viriety of sounds. Sometimes I just set the bridge pickup to loud and tonal, and make the neck pickup softer and more acoustic sounding, flip the switch, and it sounds totally different. It is amazing. Feature: I love all of the controls, and it came with a cable. Also, I read about some people complaining about not having the Les Paul signature on the headstock, but that's bull. Mine has it, and it looks amazing. Ease of Use: It's easy to get great sounds, and everything else, but when sitting and playing it is heavy and tends to slide off the player's lap. I play standing most of the time, though, so that's not much of a problem. The strings are really low, and it is so easy to do any barre chords. Quality: The finish looks great. I have it in Heritage Cherry Sunburst. The red is very different from the picture, much darker. Also, the knobs are not creme colored like the pickguard, but gold. It looks great. Value: I paid about 500 dollars for it at a music store, but you can get it half price online. Definitely worth even a thousand, though. This guitar is seriously amazing. Manufacturer Support: No idea. I've never needed it, so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. I've heard it's great. I don't think I'll ever need it. The Wow Factor: Definitely looks good. Overall: I think I will be satisfied with this guitar for at least fifty years, or when it rots or I'm too old to play.
