I'm a songwriter and singer and can play intermediate classical pieces, so I can entertain an audience.
Perfect for me when I started and I'd recommend it to other first-time electric guitar owners as well.
Been playing about 3 yrs. If it were stolen, it is cheap enough I'd probe go get another one.
I'm using it with a Line 6 Spider IV 15 amp and they are made for each other.
I've been playing for a year and this is my first electric guitar, and this guitar has made Epiphone my...
Not Epiphone. This has a brand new $185 cad price tag and it's worth half that.
Alt, R+B, easy listening, just all kinds sort of.
I would advise anyone who is low on cash to get this, as it is the best guitar in its...
I've always said Ibanez for heavy metal, Fender for blues - light rock, and epiphone/gibson in between.
This guitar when it worked did ok with these kinds of tones, but could have been better.
(For live stuff) For at home practice, it's fine.
Personally I find this guitar perfect for a green day sort of sound but I get all sorts out of...
Thinking about getting a Gibson Les Paul this upcoming Summer, I also wanted a cheap introduction into the LP world.
I have been playing for about 25 years and have never payed so little for so much.
A typical low-end Epiphone. I'd never advise buying one unless you give it a lengthy and tough test in the shop - even then, I'd recommend paying a bit more and getting a much better quality instrument..
It absolutely sounds great with the right settings for these genres.
I've been playing this guitar for just under a year now and overall around a year and a half, my...
This guitar doesn't sound that good, and doesn't look as good as on the pictures.
I have been playing about one and a half years, and the only other guitar I have is a Tanglewood...
I would probably buy it again because I'm not in any shape financially to afford anything better..
It keeps things simple, just how I like them.
I didn't expect what I got in the deal.
The finish, sound, quality and reliability is good and I would definitely recommend this guitar to anyone wanting a cheap...
There really isn't much to ask someone, I would say, that go and buy this guitar because it is very...
I have been playing electric guitar for close to a year now, asnd I use no other gear that isn't...
I have no complaints on the sound or look.
I've been playing guitar for about 3 years now, but only picked up this baby last yr.
You can't find a more reliable guitar in the price range I've been playing for about 3 years soon.
I've been playing now for about 3 months, and honestly, this guitar inspired me to play even more, it keeps...
If the guitar were stolen, I might upgrade to another Epiphone but I would have no problems buying this again.
After about six months of playing, it still is in very good shape, but I expect it to stay with...
A great matching guitar. I had not a doubt in my mind if I wanted this Les Paul or not.
This guitar gives me the sound I'm looking for and the ability to play fast with excellent palm muting tone.
Death metal. Black metal.
I've been playing it for half a year, and I can feel a good difference: I used to play a...
I play mostly hard rock and sometimes shred, and the pickups can handle it pretty well.
The Pickups are the best feature on it, they rock.
I have been playing it for a year now, and while I previously played it with an ancient Marshall Reverb...
It was a great match. For a starter guitar, the quality is fairly good, however, you could find better.
This is a fairly good match, except for the nu-metal, as previously mentioned.
I have 6 other guitars, and this one gets used second to my Les.
It makes a nice Christmas gift for the surprise to the beginner player.
It is great for a begginer because it is cheap and good quality.
I would buy another in the future if something happened.
This guitar gives me the exact sounds I want out of it which makes me glad that I bought this...
I've been playing for 3 years and I have a Vox amp and a monster cord, roadrunner gig bag.
I mean this guitar can handle it well but obvioulsy not designed for this genre and I am looking to...
Overall Impression- not good, thick seriously before buying, take a good hour in the shop playing it to make sure...
If you like classic rock and want to start playing with a guitar which sounds great, or just want another...
If it were stolen I wouldn't get a new one because I'm about to get a guitar in a couple...
Personally it would be a great guitar for beginners..
I've been playing for a few years now and have a Jackson DKMG and a Washburn.
It plays very easy, and I can do anything I want with this guitar, except for use a wammy bar.
I have been playing for a year, and play this through a Peavy Rage.
Playing for about two years now, this guitar is pretty good, and I thoroughly enjoy it.
I have been playing for around 2 and a half years, and this is my main guitar.
I've been playing for just about a year, and I usually play rhythm but ocasionly lead.
Sevendust, System Of A Down, Skindred, Drowning Pool, Linkin Park, Dream Theater, Godsmack, and bands similar to them.
Its cheap. I make up for its tone with my Boss GT-6 effects proccesor, which really makes what it is insignificant.
The thing I love most about this guitar is the action and the double Humbucking featre sounds great when playing...
I have been playing for about 3 years and I'm gonna have to say I'm a bit better than intermediate...
I have been playing for 3 years and its the best electric I've owned.
Its mean crunch and smooth looks make it a great choice for any beginner who would like to play rock...
I have tried other guitars such as Fenders and Squires, but this is by far my favorite.
I have been playing for almost 4 years and this is the best guitar I have.
