Epiphone Quality

Epiphone are a well respected guitar brand. They are the sister company to Gibson who are the designers and makers of iconic guitars like the Les Paul, SG, V and Explorer. All of their years of experience has been fed down in to Epiphone to make sure you are getting the best guitar possible for the money. Epiphone have been making guitars since 1873 so they know what they are doing.

Humbucking Pickups

The pickups in this guitar have been designed to capture a lot of that classic Les Paul tone. These are great for blues, rock and metal players starting out. Compared to single coils in general they sound a lot better with distortion and produce a lot less background noise making it easier to hear what you are playing when you lay on the gain.

Great starter guitar for the Les Paul sound

Mike Martin11th Jul 2019

Very playable Les Paul-better than my original Special II I had a few years back. Pickups were OK, but I do not like ceramic pickups, so I swapped them out for Alnico pole humbuckers. A dramatic improvement sonically. The finish is a little darker than I expected, but I can live with that-especially since that finish is so good.
