Epiphone Les Paul 100 Electric Guitar

If you want the classic Gibson Les Paul feel and sound, but find the Epiphone Les Paul Standard a little bit out of your reach, take a look at the Epiphone Les Paul 100. The Les Paul 100 is a great introduction to everything that makes the Les Paul one of the most renowned guitars in rock, from its dual humbucker pickups to its granadillo fretboard. The Les Paul's great-sounding body woods - Alder on painted models, Mahogany for transparent finishes - give it the power and sustain that makes the LP ideal for rock. The guitar's dual tone and volume knobs allow you to dial in your ideal proportion of its hot lead pickup and punchy neck pickup. The LP 100 is rounded out with the chrome hardware and dot inlays, so it looks as good as it plays.

The Les Paul is quite simply the flagship guitar of rock and roll. From Ace (Frehley) to (Frank) Zappa, rockers of all types and backgrounds have considered the Les Paul to be the best way to play. The Les Paul's long tradition of excellence carries on today with a wide variety of instruments from Epiphone as well as Gibson. If you see Les Paul's signature on the guitar's headstock, it's the real thing. Accept no substitutes.

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
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.

Features
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. read more

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.

Musical Style:
Blues, Classic Rock, Jazz
