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. The quilt top itself is kind of hard to notice in a dark lighting but when you get it in a bright light, the beauty really shows through.
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.. need to take that to the shop to see what they can do.

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). For the last 20-25 years I have mostly played Strats, and I felt it was time for a change.
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. The Classic is weight relieved (just like all Gibsons since the 80s), b... [ read more on Audiofanzine ] Had this guitar for 7 years...2001 model. Love the vibe.. feel.. look.
Excerpt: I bought this Beauty out of Musicians Friend catalog for $399.99 and not a penny more because they don't charge for postage if you buy something for $199.99 or more. I chose this guitar after a bad experience with a $649.99 GIBSON Les Paul Junior.( Not a very good buy. Cheap nut. Strings wouldn't stay in the nut.) That's a whole nuther' story ! I sent the Junior back and the VERY PATIENT people at Musicians Freind (I LOVE THEM ! ) took it back with NO QUESTIONS ASKED!
Excerpt: I bought this guitar online at music123.com I paid 1399.00 plus about 18$ shipping. I always wanted a Les Paul but didn't care for the standards necks. Also wanted a guitar without a fancy tremolo system, for easy tuning options.
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. They will price-match anybody who is an authorized dealer. I ended up paying 1,250.00 plus tax at Sam Ash Music. I bought this guitar because it is a true "classic" in every sense of the word.
