    These are all real good guitars or I wouldn't keep 'em.

    The Gibson 50’s Tribute is a much different guitar in terms of feel.. I actually like the Epi LP Custom just slightly based on the feel of the neck (Slim Taper D v. 50’s profile) and the weight..

    If I compare the Epi’s neck v. 2019 Gibson LP Classic, it is almost similar...

    Pickup-wise, I was a little disappointed with the Probuckers 2 and 3.. they advertised it as a carbon copy of the BBucker 2 and 3, but it wasnt.... It sounded weaker..

    Yeah, I have a 2016 LP Custom PRO. The Probucker-3 in the bridge position is actually quite capable, but the Mudbucker-2 in the neck...eh, it's a budget Epi.

    The overall machine itself is excellent. Very high quality. I got mine on sale for $499, and it's worth every penny and then some. Zero complaints...zero.

    Unfortunately I don't like LP's, hence my Gibson SG is my main machinery. But credit where credit is due.

    Lol. i feel the opposite..I didnt like the PBucker bridge... It didnt sound open or bright enough to my liking... I upgraded PU with Mojotone Classic and replaced the circuit board with 50’s wiring... Then I got a GAS for a Gibby...

    My Chepiphones...

    EDIT: This picture really doesn't do the Silverburst justice. It just doesn't look very good here. Looks kinda cheap or something. The inner silver isn't represented well at all. In person, it's probably one of the prettiest guitars I've ever seen. The paint/color scheme is just beautiful. This pic is a little better I think. Nice dark neck too...

    Chinese, I have a couple of Korean models, the G400 and silver sparkle Les Paul. Like the build and finish just fine, but the Chinese that I own are just that one notch better, imo. The Epi Riviera I just got came out of the box ready to go. I usually put 9-42 gauge strings on 24.75" scale necks, but I'm leaving the 10s on this one, the extra effort's worth it. Compared to the finish on my Dot, the Riv's finish is thin, the Wildkat is in between, so one might infer that the application process has improved with time. At some point when I feel like fishing I'm going to put 57/57+ in the Dot, but as is, I love it for Wes Montgomery/Gabor Szabo style jazz. I'm old, though.
