I have a Epi LP custom, a slightly cheaper model and i love it. the ultra is even better quality from what ive heard... what kind of music do you play?
#5
the ultra wont be able to handle metal, or high gain music, because it is a hollowbody and it will feedback like crazy...

but for blues, jazz, classic rock, rock, and low gain and clean stuff, its really an amazing guitar
#6
For cleans and low gain stuff it should be great-for anything else it will feedback horribly.

If you play heavier stuff look at the Epi LP Standard Plain Top. It's basically the same, just a solid body instead of semi-hollow.

actually the ultra is a really nice guitar for the money.

not a hollowbody, but a chambered body. not typical epi LP mahogany sound. brighter, which can be a good thing, depending on ur preference. (not stated.)

in addition, the weight loss is great if ur prone to back/shoulder problems.

the standard plain top will definitely be better, it wont get true LP tone and i dont see how people find them heavy (weight), dont be a pussy get a real LP

ever thought of getting a new amp as most of your tone will come form your amp, though you have a starter guitar
#11
i play any kind of rock like led zeppelin, motley crue, ac/dc, black sabbath and stuff like that

I've played a couple of Ultras, and while they've sounded a little *weird* - they played pretty well.
