This guitar is something else for the money.
The finishing is decent, the electronics haven't given me any trouble in almost 7 years. The tone is as thick as expected from a epiphone les paul. It has a lot of character for a cheap guitar. It will fall out of tune easily if you abuse it though. The second pickup really packs a punch when mixed with the right pedals.
TLDR: One of the best guitars out there for the price, won't give you much trouble.
