Looks odd without the humbucker or P90 type pickups usually fitted to LP style guitars.

That is an ugly guitar, good price tho
Mmm. I checked this out. £89 is the RRP and they have lots of colours at the £85 price. Unsurprisingly it doesn't get great reviews and most people felt it would sound bad unless paired with a very expensive amp and speakers so why would you. Having said that, expectations at £85 wouldn't be that high - just be warned, it's not much of a reduction, though delivery is free to the UK mainland.

Ideal starter guitar. Not going to sound top class but perfect for learning on.

Upgrade to a proper LP once you've learnt enough songs!

Black and sunburst for the same price, which look better.

£18 more for the model with 2 humbuckers and a better bridge - probably worth the extra.
Cheap for a nice piece of wall art
Great for my cheap surf Zeppelin period.
It looks like a Dan Electro guitar, anyway here's how to play a Dan Electro properly, in case you were wondering, oh yes and how to sing properly, play the drums properly and the bass guitar >

Hopefully most people don't believe that. An expensive amp and speakers would make this guitar sound even worse. The better the amplification/speakers, the much more revealing it is. It will show up any input short comings.

Far better to spend a bit more on a starter guitar (like a Yamaha) and less on your first combination amp
I was relying on a video on you tube where they had plugged it in to a big set up and people on there felt that would have made it sound better.
This is a Les Paul in shape only. It will not sound or feel anything like a real Les Paul. Only suitable for home use as a first guitar then to be further utilised on 5th November. Use headphones when you play this as no-one will want to hear the sound.
A Les Paul dressed like a strat. Weird.

Alarm bells also ringing at the "extremely lightweight" description. Les Pauls are supposed to be heavy. It's the whole point!

It costs £85 for Christ’s sake.

What more would you expect?

Jesus. Some people are just moaning minnies.

I'm being a realist. Common sense should tell you that some people are going to buy this guitar and think they will have a real Les Paul. That is not the case. As I pointed out, this is basically firewood. I can buy a lot more firewood for £85. Better to buy a proper Epiphone Les Paul secondhand. One with a decent body and humbuckers not single coils.

This has as much in common with a proper Epiphone Les Paul as John McCririck does with fashion. Anyone with experience of guitars would tell you the same!
looks like a toy, for that price pick up a used on Ebay, with half decent pickups and body

Who said anything about this being the same as a proper Epiphone Les Paul?

No one in their right mind is going to think at £85 they’re going to get a “real” Les Paul - dont keep stating the obvious.

Jesus. Moaning again.

I'm afraid people are dumb enough to think this would be a good guitar. I've dealt with people like that most of my life. Even today I was sat in Greggs and a so called deaf & dumb man came up to me and shoved a sponsorship sheet under my nose. No badge, a dodgy looking sheet and I recalled a news article about this scam so I politely told him to p off. He goes to the next table and she gets her purse out straight away.

I still say a secondhand Squire Strat or even a Yahama Pacifica would be a better guitar than this at roughly the same price.
