Be sure to pick up a copy of the November 2014 issue of Guitar World. Associate Editor Chris Gill contributes a great combined review of the Epiphone Les Paul Classic-T and PRO-1 Plus acoustic. Mr. Gill is quite impressed with both guitars, even awarding the Les Paul Classic-T the Guitar World Gold Award. Here's a look at his conclusions:
"The features that make the PRO-1 guitars so easy to play may seem obvious, but this level of attention to a guitar's playability is usually reserved for much more expensive instruments. What makes the PRO-1 so valuable for beginners is that it makes the process of learning kinder, gentler and literally painless. Beginners still develop the same traditional playing techniques as always, but they are rewarded much more quickly, which in the long run encourages them to keep playing."
"Without the Min-ETune system, the Les Paul Classic-T would be an impressive bargain, but with it the guitar is an absolute steal. It is, first and foremost, an awesome Les Paul guitar, offering classic warm, fat, well-defined tones and killer playability. The tuning system uses the same technology that until recently was only available on guitars costing several thousand dollars. Min-ETune is exceptionally easy to use."
To go along with the review, Guitar World Tech Editor Paul Riario created a great video product demonstration of both guitars. Check out the video below and check out the
