Just ordered and paid for this one tonight, and man Im excited. Ive been GASing for a Les Paul since I started playing, so hopefully this will tide me over till I can afford a real Gibson standard. The wait for it is going to be torture though.

Made at the Orville factory, 2001 Les Paul Standard in Tea Burst, mohagany body with maple top, Dimarzio Bluesbucker pickups, long neck tenon, etc. Its listed as being in excellent condition with two minor blemishes, no fret wear, etc.

Ive found that Chinese and Korean made epiphones are very hit and miss, some will play stellar, well others will leave you with a bad taste in your mouth.

I'll for sure do a full review on it once I get it though. It shipped out this morning so hopefully I'll have it in a week or so.

A nice guitar although I`m not a fan of plaintops smile.gif
The MIJ Epiphones are really great, I have an Epiphone Elitist which is also MIJ and the guitar is just perfect.
