Don't get these for a kid for christmas it'll ruin it, i'm saying this now because it's a month before the santa comes. Electronics, wow what an improvement! That one has a fretboard like sandpaper.
It is an exceptional entry-level guitar that will serve you well for years to come. If you are an experienced player such as myself, this guitar is a great mod platform. I am concerned that the cracks may get worse, and if this is this normal for a guitar in this low price range made in china. There is a lack of a tremolo bar, but most of us can survive without one. One is in China, the other in is Indonesia. The fingerboard is poplar composite and has position marker inlays on 9 frets.
Consider a good set of tight-fitting sealed tuners if you start hearing buzzing from the headstock. I highly recommend this guitar to any level of player. The pickups on a cheap electric guitar will usually sound muddy, and toneless, but not these! I really, really like this one and the price vs quality is outstanding. The potentiometers have a decent range, the volume and tone work as they should. I've never been a fan of the dual volume and tone controls on my Les Pauls and prefer a single volume control so this guitar suits me well.
The reason for that is simple: humbuckers stop the extra noise and string buzz from being picked up. This all-inclusive pack is ready to rock, right out of the box. The Les Paul Custom Special delivers the absolute best value out there and amazing quality, tone and playability. If you're curious about learning how to play electric -- or have a younger person on hand who wants to play -- this package is an excellent way to get started off on the right foot.

The pickups are loud And replaced with Wilkinson's Humbuckers and coil-tap. Quality: The guitar is very comparable to its sure, better.
I must say I was bowled over by the Epi! Their relationship is so close they could be twins, and yet not all simple things are efficient, and not all efficient things are simple. All using the three way toggle switch, volume and tone control. The tuning machine of the guitar is, as most of us are used to in the price range suboptimal.

Not the best quality but the best value. The fretboard of the guitar is a smooth, pleasant and dark rosewood, a traditional and expected choice for a guitar at this price.
The body is also nato with 2 classic , a bridge, and black chrome hardware. What is your opinion of this product? No guitar plays every chord perfectly in tune, nor does any piano. That's due in large part to the body's poplar construction. The mahogany body is much flatter than your traditional Les Paul, and the headstock and tuning peg stylings are most definitely Epiphone! The parts are the cheapest you'll find in china on a site called echo bay. If you're on a budget, this is an outstanding choice.
It is actually a semi-hollow bodied guitar, incorporating a solid maple centerblock to combine the small body and 'crunch' of a Les Paul with the warmth of a hollow bodied guitar. It can produce a heavy, sustain full sound for those of us with a craving for metal and a clean sound for more tame genres. Iconic Les Paul heritage Since its release in the early 1950s, the Les Paul has been one of the most popular solidbody electric guitars in the world. A Tune-O-Matic bridge and stop-bar tailpiece come standard. Choosing a guitar and learning how to play can be overwhelming. Final words if you are looking for a solid beginners instrument to get you to lessons and learning your first songs, this is a great choice. This guitar is really a sleeper - of much higher value than you pay for! Light years ahead of the crappy stuff they used to use.
