At 2:16 in this video we can see Ray playing a Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Top Pro. Toro is noted to play this model from at least 2004, as he says in [this interview](http://www.epiphone.com/News-Features/News/2004/My-Chemical-Romance--An-Interview-With-Guitarist-R.aspx). <i>I have an Epiphone Les Paul model and it's frickin' awesome! I play a lot of chords where there's a lot of finger stretching and I use a lot of octaves and then add melody on top. I always try to find a tone where you can hear every single note going on and the Epiphone responds beautifully. I've always loved playing Les Paul models and this one's cool because it's lighter than most, really comfortable to play on stage and has a really fast neck. I really like Epiphone's stuff. I love playing them.</i>more
This guitar is not my cup of tea,but most gibson/epiphone style guitars aren't. The neck is fat and chunky, the body uncomfortable, a heavy clunky feeling guitar.
It doesn't work for me. I have small hands and am pretty short, so I require smaller necks and lighter guitars because this thing is too much for me to handle.
Although, it does have a great sound and really nice look and finish (besides the gloss on the neck) for most players, this will be a great guitar, but I question its price $900 when you could spend just a little extra and get a proper Gibson/ Fender. Why did I purchase it? because it was on sale and I needed an electric guitar, I regret that decision and wish I spent that money on something else more fitting such as a Jaguar or Mustang
This is one of my favorite guitars, amazing quality, great feel and superb sound. I installed a roller TOM bridge, and I'll soon put a TUSQ Graphtech nut in there. I love the finish, and the coil-splits are a great feature with lots of different tones. I recommend it a lot, 10/10.
