I bought my Epiphone Les Paul Standard a little over 4 years ago, and it's been my main guitar ever since! If you're looking for the essentials of a Les Paul but for a fraction of the price of a Gibson (not to mention the weight...your shoulders and back will love you for it!), you just can't beat an Epiphone!

I've heard many times from other musicians I've talked to that an Epiphone Les Paul is not a "real" Gibson, it's a Les Paul "copy", etc. These couldn't be any further from the truth. Epiphone is a Gibson company and they use all Gibson manufactured pickups, electronics and hardware. The chief difference between Gibsons and Epiphones is where they're manufactured; Gibsons are assembled in Nashville and Epiphones in Korea. Both are constructed with mahogany bodies and rosewood fretboards, but the only other difference is that Gibson uses AA grade or higher maple for the tops and necks and Epiphone uses mahogany for the necks and alder for the tops.

Many players believe that heavier woods makes a difference in the tone, and in some instances, that's true. But I've played a Gibson LP Standard and an Epiphone LP Standard back to back through the same amp and I heard virtually no difference in the tone. The only thing different between the two was the weight, that's all. The Epiphone was lighter and easier to play sitting down and especially standing, and to me, it sounded every bit as good as the Gibson played both clean and "dirty" (distorted).

In my band, I play my Epiphone through a 100-watt Marshall combo amp; with the main settings on the amp all set on 5 and miked up through the PA, the sound is incredible; if you're up close to the stage, it'll take your head off! I'm not knocking Gibsons at all; I owned one myself once before and loved it.

All of my favorite guitarists like Ace Frehley from KISS, Jimmy Page from Led Zeppelin, and Slash from Guns and Roses play Les Pauls so when I went out to get an electric guitar I definately had my heart set on a Les Paul because I loved the sound so much. I went to a local guitar store and saw the rather soul crushing price of a Gibson Les Paul and then desided that an Epiphone would be more in my price range. I tried it out and loved it. It had the feel and sound of a Gibson but at a much more affordable price. I found that it fit my style of playing perfectly from its wonderful clean sound for folk to its awesome distorted sound for rock. If you are a fan of the aforementioned guitarists or guitar playing styles, this guitar is a must buy!

Bought this guitar online here and am very pleased with it.
The thing I like about it most are that the strings are close to the fret board. Guitar has a very nice
meaty sound and I'm playing it on a roland cube 60 watt amp. Sound is clear and crisp on clean. I
have to go get a new set of strings since one of the strings was missing. I love the finish on it and love the
beautiful style that it has. I'm going to be proud of it for years to come. I was going to decide on either
a strat or this Epi and I definitely love this one. I had a $500 strat once and I really do like this Epiphone a bit
better than the strat because of its more traditional look. I'm in love.

I have played Gibson and Epiphone (I currently own an Epiphone). I can't tell too much difference. I really think the Epiphone sounds really good. If you can't be satisfied with the sound this guitar makes, then you have serious issues. It's a perfectly fine guitar and at $500 plus, I mean, come on... That's not exactly a cheap guitar. Epiphone is fine. They also make an acoustic called a Hummingbird that actually plays amazing. I guess what I am trying to say is, you probably won't notice that significant of a difference (I didn't). For the money, it is really a nice brand. Go for it!
