Epiphone Les Paul 100
Cut From the Same Cloth as the Les Paul 1952 Original
The Les Paul 100 is a superb instrument for players looking for an affordable but reliable electric guitar that has the classic look, sound and feel of a Les Paul. The Les Paul 100 is cut to similar specs as Les' 1952 original and has everything new and professional guitarists look for in a quality instrument.
The Les Paul 100 is all you need to get that great Les Paul sound. The all-mahogany body includes a maple top which is lighter and slimmer than full size Les Pauls, making it easy to hold for long practices and gigs. The bolt-on mahogany neck features the "Les Paul" classic scale length of 24.75" with a 1.68" nut width, rosewood fingerboard, and dot inlays. The Les Paul 100 also comes in four stunning colors including ebony, Heritage Cherry, Sunburst, and Vintage Sunburst.
The tone of the Les Paul 100 comes from two Alnico V Humbucker pickups with tone and volume controls for each. The all-metal hardware includes the output jack and a LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge, all made to the same standard of excellence as all other Les Pauls.
Quality Epiphone Hardware
The Les Paul 100 features Epiphone all-metal hardware that can last for the lifetime of your guitar including a patented LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and StopBar tailpiece and premium 14:1 die-cast machine heads.
Epiphone is one of American's oldest and most revered instrument makers and since 1873, Epiphone has made instruments for every style of popular music. The name evokes both history and the spirit of invention. Epiphone has been an audible presence in every great musical era from the mandolin craze of the early 1900s to jazz age guitars of the 1920s. From swing-era archtops through post-war pop, jazz, R&B, and early rock n' roll. From the "British Invasion" to heavy metal, punk, grunge, and thrash. And now, in the 21st century, new Epiphone technical breakthroughs such as the ProBucker pickup, series parallel switching, built-in KillSwitch pots, the Shadow NanoFlex and NanoMag pickup systems, and premier acoustic/electric guitars with the eSonic preamp have brought the historic name to a new generation.

I bought this guitar for the same price at Ken Stanton Music (great service, by the way). I could not be more pleased. I believe that the Greek Muses dropped this guitar from the heavens, and placed it in that store for me to pick up and play. It shreds like a monster, yet croons beautifully- try playing Santana on this puppy. You'll be needing tissues. It works with all styles.
Also, don't worry about damaging this thing. I whacked it real hard on accident and was afraid to look. Not a scratch.
So let's go through the pro's and cons:
Plays like a dream
It's awful hard to fit a wedding ring on her.
Wait, are you still reading? Well, stop it. And buy this axe.
Compared to the Fender Stratocaster Squire or the Epiphone Les Paul Special 2; the Epiphone LP-100 severely outshines both in construction, tone, and overall quality. I wish I had known about this model before starting my guitar journey with a Fender Squire Strat Pack - which is absolute garbage even with a proper setup. What I thought would be a step up from that pile was an Epiphone LP Special 2; while it isn't the worst choice it wasn't a good one. That guitar was a plank of wood and the tone reflected that. Stear clear of those models. They will end up in a closet gathering dust. They both suck to play and I really do mean that.
The LP-100 on other hand is VERY impressive for the price and would be a good starter guitar for anyone interested in learning how to play. Looks wise, it begs to be taken off the wall and played. The iconic sunburst finish really shines, doesn't look cheap at all, and can take a ding or two without showing. The sound is great, the humbuckers really sing, and the volume/tone knobs are responsive. String changing is a breeze and adjusting the action is also very simple given the tail piece and bridge are easily accessible. You can get a wide variety of rich tones out of this when coupled with a decent amp - I used a Fender Mustang 2 and not some silly mini speaker. In fact, if you are buying this for a gift or as first guitar for yourself do get a Fender Mustang 2 at around $100 on here. One of the biggest blocks for learning can be things not sounding right, Part of the equation to having a successful start with playing guitar is a combination of good equipment at the start.Read more ›
In any event, the guitar is a GREAT value for the money. It has great tone and sustain, the neck is fast and wide making it easier to play, especially if you have big hands. I had a Squier Strat Standard at one time and it does not even come close to this guitar (or the Epiphone SG-310 I had prior to the LP-100) in quality OR sound. There's just NO comparison.
Speaking of the SG-310, I actually think it sounds a bit better than the LP-100, however, both are very versatile and can play just about any music. Quality and construction are excellent. This is NOT a "beginner" guitar. You can perform live with it and I think it will hold up fine for YEARS!
I miss my SG and will most likely pickup another one very soon, but I don't regret getting another LP (I had one for over 20 years). This truly is an excellent guitar for such a little price.
I've been playing since about '72 and it's easily (along with the SG) one of the best guitars I've owned. You really do get Gibson sound without the Gibson price tag. There are higher-level LP's (and SG's) with the neck thru bodies (the LP-100 and SG-310 have bolt on necks) and I may "move up" someday, but I have no complaints at all with this guitar. Didn't have any with the SG either. Oh, yeah, higher-end models use different/better wood. Just don't think this guitar is the "cheap stuff"...you would be very wrong if you did.
I give it 4 stars because I think the SG-310 beats it in the sound/sustain department...but JUST barely. There's a reason the LP has been a music staple for DECADES and this model carries on that tradition.
All in all, the LP-100 was a VERY wise choice for me.

This is a great guitar for the money. Probably one of the best values you'll ever find. I've been playing a Strat for years that I love, but wanted to include the different sound... Read morePublished 5 months ago by Technoart
