Sound — 10
I play rock and metal and she works perfectly for both, all I have it running through is a Boss distortion pedal and its great, I've only owned a few guitars in my life and this one by far is the best sounding one I've had. The EMGs that come with it blow my mind, I play it off a Fender amp and it makes my friends jealous that I only paid $500 for something that can sound sooo good.
Overall Impression — 10
This guitar is a perfect match for anyone lookin to start playing metal. The Floyd Rose mixed with the passive EMGs are definitely my favorite parts about the guitar, and everything else about it is right up there with the pickups, honestly if your lookin for something to shred with but still keep the simple design of a Les Paul look no further cause the Epiphone Nightfall is here.
Reliability & Durability — 9
Durability wise this guitar is set, I've bumped into things and its hard to scratch, as far as realiability goes at first my Floyd Rose was a pain to tune, like everytime I'd drop the whammy bar it'd knock my G string outa tune, but I don't know like magic it just started keeping tune the other day and hasn't dropped since. Honestly I would suggest before buying this guitar learn how to use a Floyd Rose properly cause the pain I had to endure figuring it out is the only reason I'm not rating this guitar a perfect 10.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
When I got the guitar from guitarcenter the action was ok, there werent any deffects to it and everything works great, I did some fine tuning with the action and its set perfect now, I've adjusted my pickups too. Everything was lined up properly. When I got my hands on it at the store the only thing I didn't like about it was its kinda heavy, but after you plug it in and play it the weight doesnt't even bug you anymore, I promise :)

I just wanna start off by saying I'm in love with Nightfall Les Paul. Its a 22 fret beauty with a nice neck, when your hand starts to sweat the sweat acts as a lube almost on your neck allowing for some sick sliding. It comes with a Floyd Rose and passive EMGs giving it a great sound.
