I put this same review on the Epi site. First, thanks zZounds for being zZounds. This guitar is truly Epic! I used an early 70's Gibson Les Paul Deluxe in the 80's as my main axe. I loved the slim taper neck profile. From the late 90's to now I have not been able to find a Les Paul style guitar that appealed to me, always something wrong in the design. I tried one of these at a store, and was impressed. So I ordered one, and was shocked at what a great quality axe it is, great out of the box. The inspection and set up was perfect. Of course I had to set it up my way which usually takes 10 or more hours, this only took a couple of hours. The neck profile thickness was spot on to the Deluxe's 60's slim taper d style neck. And, I believe the width is ever so slightly wider, I mean by 1.2mm perhaps, which is something I had always wanted as the original slim tapers were just a tiny bit too narrow. Please, please, do not change one thing about the specs on this guitar, please, keep it exactly as it is. You've got a true classic winner on your hands. It's a way better axe than most similar guitars costing thousands more. The materials and quality control are excellent for the price point. Thank you for making me happy!!! I feel like I've been reunited with a long lost friend. PS, I find I am using it more often in single coil mode than humbucker, which is great. Super versatility. The pickups are really good! The Pau Ferro is fine. It's awesome! Got the green by #6 ;) Send this up read more the line. You are truly awesome! Epiphone China/USA is making these guitars properly!! I'm sort of in shock by this, no kidding. They've really stepped up. Thank you!!
