These guitars are built for the person who is on a budget and wants to get that Gibson type sound. Epiphone is really geared towards a musician who would doesn't have a lot of money or is financially strapped but still wants a Gibson voiced guitar. Many of their guitars are built overseas and I think actually all of them at this point are built overseas. So what you do is you get a decent sounding guitar for a lot less money than you would a Gibson Les Paul or a Gibson SG guitar. These guitar sound pretty much exactly the same as any other Gibson but the feel of the instrument is quite different. When you pick up this guitar you will immediately notice that the weight and feel of the guitar is not quite as comfortable as a Gibson guitar. So if you never played a Gibson Les Paul guitar than you probably won't think of anything otherwise, but there is a distinct difference in the feel and the balance

SOUNDS


These guitars really excel in a high gain amplification setting. So for example if you're using this guitar with the Bogner or a Mesa boogie amplifier in your to get are really saturated sweet tone. This guitar is not a bad guitar for the money and they sound pretty much exactly the same as any other Gibson guitar. However when you're playing it you're definitely going to noticed the feel but the tone is all intact . Overall they're a great sounding instruments for the money and if you are on a tight budget and it's a great alternative to the Gibson guitar.

OVERALL OPINION


You can find these Epiphone guitars pretty easily and most guitar centers or any other music guitar retailer around the world. They're very common among many online retailers in the big house type guitar stores. Trying to find these guitars isn't that difficult but I suggest trying out a few to find that perfect feel and weight that is complementive to your style of playing. You really can't go wrong with the Epiphone guitars that are built in Korea because they have a better weight and feel in my opinion. Many of these guitars have pretty decent build standards but not quite as good as the Gibson guitars. Overall these are great budget and financially sound purchases if you're looking for that Gibson tone. Overall this is a great buy for someone who wants that tone but wants to get the best bang for their money.
