On my Wishlit:
Gibson has always been up to speed when it comes to the ideating of guitars that satiate the needs of every musician. Latest line of Electric guitars incorporate these legendary Gibson features into the Epiphone models as well creating a new "Epiphone, Inspired by Gibson" line.
What particularly caught my eye was the Epiphone Les Paul Modern, as it has the vintage appeal of a Les Paul but transcends the boundaries of modern technology, producing a guitar that ecompasses the widest range of possibilities for any and every guitarist.
The Epiphone Les Paul Modern, Sparkling Burgundy (which is the likes of the Gibson Les Paul Modern that costs 4 times more than the Epiphone version) is on my wishlist for various reasons. I have always been an avid fan of the Les Paul shape, because of its aesthetics and the ability to hold better sustain and sound bigger than a double cut guitar. What makes the Les Paul Modern unique is the fact that it is light weight, has a slim-taper, asymmetric neck and Pro-Bucker Humbucker pick-ups that are very versatile. In addition, this guitar has coil splitting capabilities as well as reverse phasing technology that can satisfy all my needs as a guitarist, giving me an umpteen number of permutations and combinations best suited for my needs – whether I am playing funk, blues or heavy metal.This guitar is something that I look forward to having in my collection.
