It's a cheap guitar, true, and it works, also true. But this guitar is NOT a nice guitar. Do not be fooled.
The fret buzz on this guitar, and every single one of the same model by Epiphone that I have played (around 7 others), is OUTRAGEOUS. It was so bad that adjusting the height of the bridge didn't do ANYTHING to fix it. I called my store and found out the best way to fix it was to get a new, custom-cut nut. Not worth it.
The pickup is of the "meh" quality.
Just don't get this.
Aside from the neck and body, nothing about my LP Jr. is stock. I replaced all of the hardware, electronics, and the pickup. Great for use as a project guitar if you are a beginner just getting into mods and customizations.
