The Epiphone Classic Plus stands out from the crowd in that it has a very nice figured maple top and an awesome neck shape. The guitar has a mahogany body with a maple top, it has a mahogany set neck, a rosewood fretboard with 22 frets, a tune-o-matic bridge for tuning stability and tone, two humbuckers, two volumes, two tone knobs and a three way switch.

UTILIZATION

The neck shape is the main thing to look for. It has that 60s neck profile which is extremely comfortable to play. In fact, it's my absolute favorite Les Paul style neck shape that Epiphone and Gibson make. It's thinner than the normal 50s shape, but it's not so thin that it kills your hand like so many other ultra thin necks out there. The fretwork wasn't too bad on this, but there were some sharp edges that should have been gone over better. However, given the price, I guess you can't complain too much. On top of everything, it looked killer.

SOUNDS

The sound wasn't too bad. In fact, I think this model sounded a bit clearer than the other guitars I played, and I think that's due to the pickups being uncovered. The bridge pickup had some decent bite for hard rock riffing, but the neck pickup was too bright for me. I like an ultra fat neck pickup, and this one had a bit too much treble. If I had it my way, I'd probably throw a JB in the bridge and a 59 in the neck. That's roughly the ultimate and most versatile pickup combo out there for the money. It can do nearly every genre, and it can do them well.

OVERALL OPINION

These guitars seem to be a bit harder to come by, but they're pretty cool guitars. I especially enjoy the neck on this thing as it's thinner than the standard Les Paul style shape. Things you should look out for are fretwork issues and nut issues. Those two things can really make or break a guitar. Search eBay for some great deals on this.
