(SOLD) Used Epiphone Les Paul Standard 2000 Made in Korea
Epiphone Les Paul Standard, made in Korea in 2000, in tasty honey burst finish. The flame maple top on this is very attractive, it's a really classy LP in very clean condition. The Samick factory built Korean Epiphones are widely regarded to be the best quality Epi models around, and this one is a good example. The neck is slim and comfortable, it's a well-balanced and easy player that you really don't have to work hard to enjoy. The stock humbuckers have plenty of output and have a nice mix of cut and body; the neck pickup sounds especially good. It's fairly light for this genre of guitar which is a bonus. If you're after an affordable classic rock machine, this one will look nice in your collection!
