It plays like your average Epiphone. The difference being the P-90 pickups.


I find the '56 perfectly fine stock compared to the Standard (Which I don't find as impressive). With a nice set of Lollar '90's, the thing would probably scream.


If you like how Epiphones play and you like the P-90 sound, then by all means, pick one up.

I own one of these, very good epiphone, one of the best models they make. The p-90s arent for everybody, but handle classic rock, blues, jazz, punk and grunge very comfortably, think telecaster on steroids, truely some of my favourite pickups. The guitar is pretty heavy, as a good LP should be, neck is very chunky, but I like that kind of thing. Great tuning stability, very versatile, great look. I say try one out, if you like it , buy it.

Much of the Gibson/Epiphone lines are hit and miss. The trick to finding the right Epiphone for you is exactly that. Finding it. Play a whole bunch of the '56 Goldtops and see which one you prefer.

How do you figure that? From most accounts, all the vintage "holy grail" les pauls were all fairly light.

yah, search around and find one, chinese epi's are hit and miss, mine is rather good, but i got lucky. I think you'll find most people prefer the fully solid body(not weight relieved) les pauls, its my personal opinion.
