Be sure to check out the February 2015 issue of Total Guitar (Europe's best selling guitar magazine) and specifically page 89 where a complete review of the Epiphone Lee Malia Les Paul Custom is presented. Reviewer Darran Charles had this to say:
"... Its construction is almost flawless."
"Strapped on, the weight is perfectly proportioned, and the neck's '1959' carve feels familiar and playable..."
"The neck pickup (single coil) doesn't lose much of the power and creamy tone you'd normally associate with a Les Paul's neck position, but in addition we now have a punchy, snappy characteristic at play, which works brilliantly for percussive rhythm playing and funky solos."
"... it feels equally at home delivering hard-rock tones or metal brutality."
"As signature models go, Lee Malia's Les Paul stands out from the metal crowd with ostentatious fretboard inlays and gleaming gold hardware."
"... an extremely well-constructed guitar from a custom shop that's deserving of serious recognition, especially at this price point."
In the end, Mr. Charles gave the Lee Malia Signature Les Paul Custom an overall rating of 5-out-of-5 stars and awarded it the prestigious Total Guitar "Best Buy" award! Visit your Authorized Epiphone Retailer today to check out the Epiphone Lee Malia Les Paul Custom.
