Am new to learning the guitar. Like the vintage 69's style/sound found it easy to play. Has given me confidence to progress.
I think this is a good starter guitar. I am a complete novice so can't review the technical side but it sounds good and its light and manageable. For what i paid it's an extremely good guitar
Thin finish, cracked fretboard weak tone - surprisingly unimpressive
Really nice to play
Definitely recommend as a first guitar, it’s an Epiphone Les Paul so you knows it’s good quality for the price. Just recommend going to a music shop and asking them to improve a few things on it (they’ll know what to do) I noticed a couple of issues with it but it’s a cheap les Paul so you get what you pay for. But a nice guitar to play and does the job well
