They are on the higher end
Yes, I agree.they arein the higher echelon of Epiphone guitars, but they are a little gaudy in my opinion.probably too 'modern' for the 'oldfashioned' LP-Players
I've had mine almost 10 years and wouldn't trade it for any other! But mine is completely different than what they produce now? Ebony fretboard, graphite nut, Dirty Fingers pickups, satin finish slim taper neck (Not sure if this applies on others?), 24 frets, Love it!
