"As good as it gets Old School style!"
I purchased a new re-issue Gibson TV Yellow Special, some years ago for over 3x the price of this Epi Les Paul P90 Special, and it wasn’t at all, what it was cracked up to be! I sold her some time later and bought a used Hamer Special, which was spectacular guitar. Unfortunately, I sold it on impulse at the time, abd did regret it. This Epiphone TV Yellow Les Paul Special, exceeded all my expectations, and I find it hard to put this guitar down! The feel, the finish, the pick-ups and especially the fat beefy tone that responds to your own unique playing style, and cleans up nicely when you lower your volume control. Highly recommended, abd the price is right! Get one while you can!

""Oh, my Lord!!!""

I'm absolutely in love with this instrument. From the moment I removed it from the box I knew I had something special I mean it was still in tune after 1200 miles on the road. The neck felt perfect I loved the weight and the strings rang out just like church bells. Then I plugged it into an early sixties Supro "Super" and had a religious experience the tone is to die for and this caused an explosive output of new material to flow effortlessly from my fingertips. I've owned several guitars with P-90's and I've always been kind of partial to them but none have ever pleased my ears as much as this beautifully crafted Les Paul. Everything about this guitar is just right for me I've found my new "Number One". This guitar will definitely go toe to toe with it's more exorbitantly priced Gibson counterpart.

"Great proper Les Paul special at a killer price"

My LP special arrived a few days after shipping, and was set up fairly well out of the box. Extremely comfortable neck with a perfect amount of chunk. P90s growl with authority. Very smooth fretwork especially at 399$. Epiphone stepped it up big time with these. I would've have no problem paying 500$ for this. It's worth it.

"Flawless. Worth the price."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
For a P90 Lep Paul Special, this one is not to be missed. Sounds great. Changed out the tuners with Hiptshot Closed Locking Tuners (nothing wrong with them, added some more tuning stability to an already great guitar), switched to EB Beefy Slinkies, and added Dunlop Straplok's. Will probably take the neck finish down (hand sticks when I'm playing, should not be an issue with others), but overall, there's nothing else I would change with this at all. Great workmanship at nearly HALF THE PRICE of it's Gibson equivalent. And zZounds was the ONLY ONLINE RETAILER THAT HAD THIS MODEL IN STOCK (Even over Epi's own website!)

"Unbelievably good"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This is, bar none, the best guitar I have ever purchased at anywhere near this price. This guitar is the real deal. Light, resonate, great pickups, great fit and finish, amazing neck profile. I can't say enough good things about this guitar...don't hesitate...buy yourself one and watch how much you can't stop the grin from growing on your face everytime you play it.
