Fantastic Service Fantastic Guitar

First I would like to thank Derek Senestraro and his team for great service and working with me. In a time of no service Sweetwater is the best. My guitar arrived in two days and was packed excellent, the guitar is beautiful and the set up was professional and perfect, it was almost in tune. This guitar is the real deal as I have been playing it for two days and everything is fine and it is beautiful. For those complaining about the pups if you use the controls it gets the great Paul sound and everything else. I would never buy a guitar from anyone but Sweetwater. Thanks guys!!!!!!

Epiphone Les Paul goldtop

Just received my goldtop from Sweetwater, and it is 100% perfect out of the box. This goldtop is such a killer deal! Sweetwater does everything correct- great pictures, great service, ultra-fast shipping, perfect set-up on a spotless guitar! I am a Sweetwater customer for life!!!!


This is my sixth Les Paul, but my first Epiphone. Can an Asian product really be as good as one made in the US? Why, yes it can. This Les Paul is basically perfect right out of the box (thanks at least in part to Sweetwater's attention to detail) - it plays and sounds great, and the quality, fit, and finish are first rate. I literally can't find anything to fault here. I must confess I bought this one to use as a testbed for some engineering work I'm doing, and now I just hate to have to take it apart!This is an exceptional instrument at a great price, and a truly amazing value. Get one; you won't be disappointed!

Epiphone Les Paul Standard plain top (gold)

Have to say that it has been a long time since I bought a new guitar that was as satisfying as this. Quick delivery, excellent setup out of the box. Sweet Les Paul tone one expects to pay much more for. My last Les Paul was from another company, was a Gibson special and left much to be desired. It didn't last long in my arsenal. Much more bang for the buck here. Excellent, helpful sales staff, too.

Killer guitar for the price!

I was playing a show that needed a big humbucker sound, and I have always wanted to try a les paul type guitar, so I picked up the epiphone gold top... because gold top, and because it's crazy affordable! I will say for alist $399.99 guitar, it sounds great! I have a few friends with nice Gibson Les Pauls, and while I will admit there is a difference in the feel and overall quality... if you're not a Les Paul nut like myself, you can get past it pretty quickly. I will say also, that every guitar player I've ever let try it out has loved it, and has the same "wow it was how much?" reaction after plugging it in. Stock pick-ups are OK, but put the time in you can still get a great tone from this guitar.
