"Epiphone 1959 Les Paul reissue"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I received this guitar last week. I became aware that Epiphone was doing a 59 reissue in conjunction with the Gibson custom shop in January of this year, almost 12 months ago, as this is December. I had been watching and anxiously awaiting the opportunity to order one! I REALLY didn’t need another guitar, let alone another Les Paul ( I own 3). But I have to say, this is simply spectacular! I can’t find a flaw ! Fretwork, binding, routing! Everything is very, very clean! Sounds great, feels and plays great! I am a fan of 50’s style neck profiles, so I feel right at home on this! I could go on and on, but I will sum it up like this. I believe this is as close to owning/playing a custom shop Gibson R9 as you can come, without shelling out 4 -6 k! As always, I never thought twice about ordering this through zZounds, as I knew that if there was a problem, or even if I didn’t like it, there would be NO problem returning it! Simply the best music company to buy from PERIOD !
