im pretty sure epi dont do a classic model

you can get a new standard for that price

how old is it? if its a good few years, its likely to be a really good quality one
Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.

Epiphone used to do a 'Classic' model. It was about between the Standard Plus and Custom.

However, that was several years ago - back when they still used alder in the bodies of their guitars. After they stopped making the Classic, Epi started using full mahogany instead in the Standards and Customs.

So, if you want an alder/mahogany 'sandwich' Les Paul, go for it.

Or, if you want a full mahogany Les Paul, don't buy it and buy the Standard or Custom instead.


Of other note is that the old Classics will have inferior hardware (tuners, bridge, pots, wiring, input, etc) compared to the new Standard and Custom. With that and the body wood problem, I really don't see the point in buying an old Classic now.

Standard = £260 - £300 brand new

Custom = £350

£250 for a second hand one is way too much.
