Excerpt: i bought this guitar brand new.i own several other guitars,gretsch ,fender,and i always come back to this one.heavy,but plays as smooth as butter and always stays in tune.if you are knocking one of these out of tune ,quit playing.
Excerpt: I play lots of styles and this baby I use for anything. I've played the ES-339 also and it's nice, but there is no comparison aside from the size and style. This Custom Shop gem is my main guitar until my final breath on the planet.
Excerpt: I got the Wine Red Quilt top back in 2007, played it stock for a year then changed up the action and did some basic setting up and I still love this guitar. I currently own a Gibson Les Paul Studio and this guitar is easily its match.
Excerpt: Overall, to get an Epi Les Paul for $200 that's only 5 years old and is in great shape is a good deal to me. It was the perfect present to myself. It looks good, plays nice, and sounds great. I'm pretty happy with it. Other than the tuning issue which drives me nuts..
Excerpt: I havent played in quite a few years and wated to get back into it again after seeing my favorite band, Tonic play. The LP Classic was the obvious choice. I did alot of pricing for this guitar on the Internet before going to my local Sam Ash. Their sale price was $1,650.00.
Excerpt: I have had this guitar for 4 odd years now. I will never sell/trade it. It never seems to let me down. That's pretty good because I play it a lot. For the money, it was an excellent value. The only real drawback I see is the finish.
Excerpt: I'll try to summarise the guitar with respect to both my opinions, and to the point of view of someone looking to buy an SG without having owned one before. This guitar is an excellent choice if you want to upgrade from a cheaper brand or perhaps are looking for something a little different, say if...

Excerpt: Years ago, in 1970, Peter Green and Nigel Watson were hanging around my house near Detroit. In the series of jam sessions we had at that time Peter was using the legendary 59 Les Paul he later gave to Gary Moore; which, as everyone knows sounded amazing (no petals here, just straight tube tone).
Excerpt: If you can't afford the Traditional, I recommend checking out the Classic. It's a bit more geared towards metal heads given the 500T pickup, and it tends to go for a bit less than the Standard. It's hard to recommend the current Standards given that they're now chambered.
