Been missing having a les paul in my life. Even with my epiphone dot and peavey t60 i still didnt have the full "les paul" sound. Went out with the wife to the "local" (ie 40 miles away) shop planning to trade my mustang 3 for something new to play with. I was looking between an epiphone korina v with emgs and a mexi strat when my wife found this little gem. Epiphone les paul standard 1960 v3 reissue. Haggled and haggled and eventually walked out with my newest addition to the herd. Silky smooth neck and lovely squishy action like a les paul should have. The guy said it had 57 classics but the specs say its burstbuckers, dont even care to check as they sound great and have great range. Played a few gibsons next to it but this one was smoking them all. Anywho hngd to me.
