ConsNaff quality pickups

After not picking up a guitar for over a year (for personal reasons, see my details for a hint as to why...), I decided to pick up a guitar again and wanted a new one. Preferably a good but not pricey one and not a Fender, my usual weapon of choice. So after much humming and ahhhing, I decided on...

ConsImitation pickups

I bought this guitar about a year ago now and it has become much loved by me. When I saw it in the guitar shop, I was just stunned by how beautiful it looked for the price. A little test drive was enough to confirm to me that it is what I was looking for. Back then I was not really serious as a...

ProExcellent durability and sound,

Consquite heavy

I personally love these guitars. i Bought one around 4 years ago when learning to play, it has never failed me, and has served me through many gigs. These guitars are gorgeous and affordable, of course, i wanted the Gibson version, but could not afford it, but these are definitely the best under...

Consexpensive and daunting to a beginner

There is, unsurprisingly, a reason why this guitar is so successful - it is an absolute icon of our time. For years to come, people will look at that familiar rounded outline and remember their rockstar hopes and fantasies, as well as their most epic jam sessions! I have only been playing guitar...

ConsPickups aren't the best

- Made in Korea - Two pickups and gold plated hardware - 3way selctor switch for ryhthm - Gibson 'designed' pickups - Mahogany body and neck with flame maple top I mainly rock music such as Muse and Smashing Pumpkins. The guitar suits this style of music very well, and a sounds pretty good with a...

I bought this guitar as a kind of investment back in Nov 07. What a great choice. The guitar is black and gold, with gold hardware, unlike the picture depicted here. I usually play a rang of music styles. GNR to pub rock to pop. The great thing I found about this guitar is the fact that it makes you stand out in a crowd. I played this at a concert and you just could not miss it, the colours were so contrasted. As with any full size LP, They are very easy to play. The only downside to this is that its a very heavy guitar, so long jam sessions can really hurt your neck. Other than that it's great!

Consnot good for metal.

The Epiphone Les Paul Custom is a great guitar ant a good price for and intermediate level player. The pickups work great for jazz, blues, and rock music. But it lacks in the field of metal music.

“Les Paul Standard”

ProCheaper than Gibsons

ConsSlightly less build and sound quality

I own a Les Paul Standard, sunburst finish. I find it to be a very playable guitar, with a nice full sound. I have played genuine gibsons, and to be honest, the difference, although noticable is not to great. After about two weeks I dropped it, the body wasn't marked at all, but the pickup...

ProRich Tone, Rarely Goes out of tune when playing.

ConsNeck-through

I brought this guitar almost three years ago, and have never looked back. This Guitar is good for playing just about anything. It's extremely diverse. It has a lot of high end for when you are wanting those pinched harmonics to just scream, and the low end for when you are in a more gentle mood...
