Awesome Epiphone LP Standard

'Received my Epiphone LP Std a couple of days after I ordered it and I'm amazed how well this plays...like butter. The Cardinal Red is a great color on this guitar and fit & finish is perfect. Maybe I'm crazy but I think it's a better guitar than the '82 Gibson LP Custom Special I had a long time ago. A special thanks to Mr. Robert Williams and Kobi H. for setting her up before shipping. These guys are Customer Service Experts that always make sure your gear is perfect when you get it. Thanks soooo much!

Epiphone Les Paul Standard

Skeptical at first but thanks to Derek and the team at Sweetwater I am "blown away". Perfect condition, set up was great out of the box and played great. The case was also perfect, solid and well appointed inside with lush covering all around. The guitar fit nice and tight. Sweetwater is my go to guitar company from now on. Thanks to the Sweetwater team.

Wonderful upgrade from my beginneer guitar!

Love it! The assistance that Aaron Hoff gave to my Mom was right on! Great customer service too!

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!

Well-made guitar, GREAT service.

My sales rep was Robert, who was friendly and knowledgeable. We talked for a while about what I was looking for and how much I was looking to spend & after going back & forth on a few models I decided on the Epi LP Standard Plain Top & very glad I did.The guitar is well-made, especially for the price, and arrived in perfect condition, relief and action factory perfect, and even in TUNE. Never had an online-ordered guitar show up in tune before, and I've ordered several guitars online. Inspection certificate in the strings, and I have a feeling that they actually did a thorough inspection of the guitar and it wasn't just ad hype.Not only did I get a top-quality product, at a lower price than the other websites out there, but they sent me 9 photos of my guitar from different angles before they shipped it to let me know it was on its way. Checked the serial number too - it's the same guitar.Pickups are standard humbuckers, pretty generic but not going to knock them - I might wind up changing them, but only because I tend to get bored. There's not a thing wrong with them and they can produce any sound I want thru my effect chain with no noise at all. Plays great, like I said it was set up perfectly, and the tuners, knobs and output jack do everything they're supposed to with no issues at all. Overall totally impressed, especially considering this is a pretty inexpensive guitar. From now on if Sweetwater has it, I'm getting it from them. Thanks a lot!
