I was extremely impressed when I received this guitar several months ago. The guitar came out of the box set up reasonably well. I find the guitar to provide very good tone for the price (or beyond) and I do not think there is a better guitar at this price. I previously played a similarly priced Jackson and while the neck was much faster, I felt the action was poor and the tone was lacking. I feel the same way about similarly priced Stratocasters, but that is personal opinion (though they get extremely nice as you increase the price point).

The sound of this guitar is quite good. The tone is very clear when I want it to be, and very crunchy and fat when I want . Sustain is impressive. I feel it suits my favored musical styles (Rock/Metal/Blues) extremely well.

I would still consider myself to bit at best an intermediate in playing skill, but I am very well-versed in the hardware and am a avid do-it-yourself man. The features of this guitar are more than adequate for my playing skill and I have had much better guitar players complement the features of this piece.

Ease of Use
Ease of use is stellar. I find the guitar to be quite heavy and the neck to be rather thick, but that is by design and is reflected in the design. I do not get frustrated by the hardware like I have by some other lower or similarly priced guitars. I sometimes find my technique lacking rather read more than the tool.

This guitar appears to extremely well made. The quality control is excellent and, frankly, higher than I would consider at this price point. Access to the internals is easy and the product is beautiful. The finish is impressive and I have received many complements and comments from guitar teachers and seasoned guitar players on this guitar.

This guitar seems to be an extremely good value. It is a hard place to be when selling at somewhere between budget and high-end, but I think this guitar will serve me well for years to come. Overall, a quality product at it's price point and beyond.

Manufacturer Support
I have no experience with Epiphone support, so I cannot comment.

The Wow Factor
I was quite pleased with this guitar when I opened up the package. The finish was beautiful and I felt a stir of pride knowing that I had a similar piece of equipment that my favorite artists such as AFI and From Autumn to Ashes play. The Les Paul Standard is a gorgeous guitar and when it is not being played, it hangs on my wall like a piece of art.

Musical Background:
Playing music for 6+ years, guitar casually for four years and more seriously for 1 year.

Musical Style:
Rock, metal, Blues
