For the money, my Les Paul Standard really Southern rocks for me. :DevilGuitar:
Sweet blues leads too!
Tuned "Open E" & using a glass-slide for "raunchy old blues "will make the hair on the back of your neck stand up! Yowza!!
I got the translucent amber finish on mine..beauteefull!
I top-wrap mine with #10 Slinkys! Oooh La La!

I've certainly seen and heard lots of Epiphones which were questionable, but lately some of the better ones are quite good bang for the buck, and worth considering.

I rarely even try the cheap guitars I find in the shops, but last year I actually purchased a finish flawed (and thus price reduced) Epiphone Dot Studio. You know, faded cherry finish, 335 design without fingerboard dots, single volume and tone, 3 way pu switch. The tuners were complete and utter crap, and I knew that at the point of purchase, so I replaced them with Gotoh 510s. Added strap lock buttons too. But it's a damn good 335 at an entry level price. Eventually a pickup upgrade will be considered as the stock ones area a bit bland, but they're serviceable for now.

Not my first call axe, but a worthy addition to the fold.

Peace, Mooh.

I was trying to think of something smart-assed to say, but then I remembered that I have an Epiphone, MIJ mind you, about 25-30 years old, but still an Epiphone.

I love my Sheraton, changed out tuners to Grovers and the pups to Highorder and it just sings....

I love looking at them, but I have owned a few and have yet to find one that 'does it for me'. I think a lot of them are great guitars though.
