I love it! - Reviews Epiphone Les Paul Standard

Value For Money : Excellent Audience: Beginners
Made in China, like all Epiphone.
Bridge tune-o-matic
Channel 60's profile, rather like that of Gibson.
22 frets, 2 humbuckers, 2 volume, 2 tone, 3-position selector 1.

UTILIZATION

The neck is perfect for my taste, it was really good in hand ..... it can be tiring to start for beginners.
The interface is identical in all respects to the "real" and access to acute .... not the best in the world, but it is a Les Paul.
We easily get the sound you want, even if the microphones are improved.
Note that it has a weight, which can surprise me in the beginning .... it does not bother me, on the contrary, at least we feel we have something "clumsy" in the hands!

SOUNDS

Are they suitable for your style of music? YES
The sounds are varied, everything goes on this guitar, but the rock, hard rock / are its chosen fields .... blues and jazz are not left out either ....
The sound is fat in OD or distortion, although "guts" ..... the cleans are not bad at all ....
The bridge pickup is my favorite, the handle a little less because it quickly becomes messy, especially with gain ..... ultimately microphones are average, but not to throw the dice the first few minutes! for the price it is very correct, if you take the time to adjust the guitar. It is true they are quite neutral, without a great personality, for they have against an output level enough balèze.
The sustain is extra, as the true .... probably due to its good body "massive" and heavy ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a little over a year, and I'm not tired. For me it's still worth it sûre.Avant I had a Yamaha Pacifica and a Cort M200. Nothing to do .....
I honestly do not have specific criticisms of this guitar ..... the look and finish are beautiful, the sounds are quite decent at first, the violin is very good ..... the volume knobs work well and are not "ON / OFF", those tone a bit less, but it will.
The Grover tuners are excellent, it does not move one bit what happens.
The value for money is EXCELLENT: at present, it is less than 300 euros on some sites, and frankly, at this price, I do not see anything requiring more .... must well set at the start: curvature of the handle, action, intonation, pitch microphones, and it sounds!
Then, for less than 100 euros, you can mount GFS pickups (including the price / quality ratio is stunning) and there for not even 400 euros was a guitar that has not much to envy her big sister ..... the pickiest can possibly change the knobs and optimize a little wiring, and there it will be really perfect home perfect!
Several times I asked myself if I was not going to sell to try to find better, but in this price range, I have not found, for me it is THE quintessential Les Paul copy ..... logic, it is now "branded" official Gibson.

With experience, you do again this choice? EYES CLOSED!
