This Guitar Is Too Good

So....this is the best electric guitar I've ever played. That's not saying much since the only other electric I've owned werected a Mexican Telecaster and an Epiphone G400, bit both of those dont measure up to this Les Paul, even though the Tele costs $ more. Here are some key points:BUILD AND HARDWAREThis thing is made of solid mahogany on the body and neck. The neck is glued on and not bolted on which sets the neck better for potentially better sustain. The hardware is fantastic! The tuners are Grover brand, and they stay in tune so incredibly well that every other tuner should melt in hell. The tuners are Alnico and even though they aren't the burstbuckers Gibsons have, they make some clear, crisp noise. Actually, I watched a blindfolded Gibson vs Epiphone test on YouTube and the guitar I liked more, which I thought was the Gibson, turned out the be the Epiphone so........For the record, I do own a Martin D15M and a Gibson J15 so I'm pretty familiar with the American build quality of a guitar and I can say this Epiphone impresses me very much.PLAYABILITYThis Guitar plays so smoothly that my hands become unnaturally talented when I play it. The action and intonation were perfect. The main reason for this is because Sweetwater does everything flawlessly with their 55-point inspection. SOUNDThis guitar is made for multiple genres of music and since I like to play indie, punk, classic rock and metal, it's perfect for me. It's full of versatility.Bottom like, this instrument is too good to be $. It's the perfect solution for anyone who doesn't want to justify the steep cost of a Gibson Les Paul.

It' evrything I hoped it would be

The thing I like most about this guitar (thanks to the Humbuckers) is the "volume across all of the strings", I have a few other guitars including a single pick up Gibson Melody Maker/ a Telecaster/ and a two pick up Washburn all of which have great "volume through the Bass strings but die on the treble,The action is the same as on the Melody Maker "which is great" and extremely easy to play

Gibson Undercover

Before I got this guitar, I played an Ibanez. I never had any background with Gibsons, or Epi's. So, i just got this today from my local music store. I was quite impressed. The sound that comes from this guitar is amazing, and has a wide range. I've got mine running through a single 10 inch Vox and it's got the power, tone, and volume I need for my live performances whether it be a home, school, or church. Epiphone, whatever it is, keep on doing it!!!

Fantastic Guitar!!!!

I bought this guitar 3 years ago and I still love looking at it. It is beautiful and classy. As for the sound, I've played Gibsons and this holds it's own with its much more expensive relative. I really love it. Being a huge KISS/Ace Frehley fan, I wanted a Les Paul for years but I could never afford one. Then I found this beauty and now I finally have what I always wanted!!! I recommend this guitar to everyone.
