I have been playing Gibson guitars for 37+ years. I owned a 1965 Epiphone Casino. My wife owns a 2002 Epiphone Les Paul Standard. I saw this Epiphone DC Pro at Sam Ash Music yesterday and I picked it up and couldn't put it down. I have been searching for a really nice Gibson Les Paul Standard Double Cut Away however even on the "Used" market they are expensive. I know, you get what you pay for. Well, this Epiphone DC Pro for under $600.00 is a fantastic Double Cut Away alternative to the Gibson. I played the Mojave 'Burst and man the whole guitar just felt, played and sounded great. Epiphone truly is making some of their best guitars now in 2019. This Epiphone DC Pro is a tremendous value. I am trying to figure out a way to make this purchase without my wife divorcing me. Ha ha!!! This guitar is so well built I wouldn't change one single thing. Epiphone makes very high quality guitars which are priced fairly and most guitarist's can afford them. Yeah, I will have to by the matching Epiphone guitar case separately but for the price of the guitar so what!?
