Epiphone 1961 Les Paul SG Standard – Inspired by Gibson Custom – Guitar Review

When Epiphone dropped this Blonde Bombshell on us late last year I resolved to resist the inevitable GAS attack. Too much cash for an Epi SG I told myself. Repeatedly. Then a dealer dropped the price by £48 and that was all it took. Let’s find out it if was worth it!
