"THE best Epiphone Les Paul I've ever played!!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Just look at the specs! Locking tuners included = mind blown! I had some time with it today after receiving it and I am just blown away. I own a bunch of other Epiphone Les Pauls. I also own many other types of Les Pauls. I've played Gibson Les Pauls over the 40+ years I've been playing guitar. This guitar EASILY stands with the best Gibsons I've ever played. The sound and the definition from the Probuckers is excellent! The locking tuners - first guitar I've had with them - make it SO easy to do string changes! I was doing some tone work with Amplitube 4 a little while ago with Joe Satriani's 'Boston 100' (Tom Scholz 'Rockman') plugin. I matched the tone with other guitars for the "Don't Look Back" song. They were very close. But, this guitar - with these Alnico II ProBuckers - got it very nearly exact! It sounds so amazingly defined! Wow! Even my DiMarzios couldn't match the tone THIS close! This Les Paul just edged a little closer than they could!I am VERY pleased with this guitar! It's AWESOME and worth every penny!!
Musical Background:
40+ years playing guitar. Gigged/Toured for 30+ years before retiring in the late 2000's.
Musical Style:
I play Classic Rock, Alternative, Hard Rock, and Classic Metal/Thrash.
