I unboxed the Epi ES Les Paul yesterday, and as I've come to expect from the higher end Asian guitars, the fit and finish is just about flawless. A couple little pieces of sawdust hanging off the inside bottom of the f holes, but that's it. I paid a little extra for SW to do a setup and they did a nice job. No buzzing and intonation is spot on. The only real gripe is it came with cheap strings that turn my fingers completely black in minutes and are very rough on the unwound strings. No big deal, I'll change those out right away. In the short time I've had to play it, the ProBucker's sounded really good, punchy and not muddy at all. The neck pickup has a nice range to it, very nice. I played with the coil split a little and I wasn't super impressed. Pretty thin and weak sounding compared to any of my other single coil guitars, but might sound ok in some combination with humbucker mode. The fret board and fret work are nicely finished and the neck is a slightly chunky d shape, reminiscent of my DeArmond Starfire Custom. The tuners are really good, even compared to some of my much more expensive guitars.The pots and output jack are very solid and nicer than I was expecting and better than my other Asian made guitars, and at least equal to my Epi ES 175. It's interesting sound wise, probably more Les Paul than 335, but there's a little of both. It does do some nice jazz sounds with the tone rolled back a little. So far I'm pretty impressed with it. I'll re string it and take some more pictures here shortly.
