I bought an Epiphone??????

but yes, I did and the freaking thing is the best $500 new guitar I have ever had or played!!! It's a Epiphone Standard Pro (Plustop I think)

It is nicely put together, a beautiful top and it sounds incredible even through my Mustang I amp. It is very easy to play and does not FEEL cheap at all. It is solid.

I am impressed.

Used to have one of these in Cherry Sunburst. Played 1000x better than the two Gibsons my friend has. Given they were both lower end (Studios) Gibsons, but theres still quite a price difference there. Congrats on the new guitar

I have one also, I dropped a set of SD Gus G. Black outs in it, and tuned to drop C, for some Ozzy Tunes we do, Great playing guitar for sure.

Epiphone has cool ones like this one =

I've played dozens of gibson lespauls and never liked them, about an year ago I played that epiphone Zakk Wylde at a store and I loved it.Very comfortable and well made but I don't like guitars without FR.

Re: I bought an Epiphone??????

Excellent choice. Over time, you might want to swap out the electronics. The Epi switch is known to die out. I swapped out the switch and all the wires, and never had a problem since.

One caveat: If you change to a Gibson switch, the wiring is different. Save yourself some time and get the Gibson schematics. I tried to wire is like the Epi and had to redo it.
