Found a steal on a brand new epiphone les paul traditional pro on presidents day. Had to order it even though I wasn't really in the market. It's my first les paul and after toying with it for a bit over an hour this evening it is phenomenal! Right out of the box it was set up well. Action could be just slightly lower but it's not bad as is. Ran it through my evh 5150 iii mini and the tone was incredible. Maiden's fear of the dark with the coil taps on sounded great. Also played some megadeth, terror, metallica, and some old Johnny Cash! It handled all sounds just fine. Pretty short and crappy review but I haven't given it enough time yet, but so far it is great. Proud owner as of now pics below.


First picture makes it look like it has scratches around the toggle, just now noticed. My lighting sucks, but the top is mint lol.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Sweet I love the color, I have been contemplating getting an LP but I don't want to pony up the dough for a Gibson, I was considering Epi and Agile as a more affordable options.

One of my favorite Epiphone Les Paul models. The satin finish on the back is just great. HNGD!

Yes, and people still got polio and you had to crank your car up by hand and put whale oil in the lamps every night.

Things are better now.

Style is in the hands. Taste is in the hands. But tone? Tone is in the gear.
