an epiphone is a great choice for clean sounds providing its a semi-hollow body.

I'm not criticizing him for suggesting Epiphones, I'm criticizing him for just saying the name of the company instead of actually listing models and trying to be helpful.

Saying that every Epiphone guitar is good for cleans is just silly.

Any guitar can produce good clean tones, just like every guitar can produce good overdriven or distorted tones.
It all just depends on, in order of important:
1) Your amp. This is by far the most important part.
2) Your pickups. Lower output pickups with Alnico III or II magnets will be the best for clean tones.
3) Your cables. Get the best quality you can get so you can ensure a smooth signal with no breakup.
4) The condition of your strings. Newer strings have more 'twang', older strings will be smoother-sounding. Which you prefer is up to you, but generally if you're playing clean, you'll want brand new strings.
5) Of course what species of wood is being used in your guitar's body, neck and fretboard, though which woods are better than others for cleans just comes right down to your personal preference. Generally though a medium or light wood is preferred for the neck and body (such as basswood, alder, ash, maple, walnut, padouk, among others), and maple fretboards are considered the best for playing clean.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

I've got a Mexican Fender Tele and it just feels right for me compared to my American strat (now sold). It's all about personal preference but teles are very versatile and so far I've not heard a bad one.
