I used to have a Epi Les Paul Studio thought it was devent sounded good with dad's cranked vox backed down the volume a bit to keep clean with my pro junior. After selling it (to get 52 reissue tele!) I didn't play any others until my school got an Epi Les Paul Studio in Black. Worst guitar I've ever played (well not including no name brands!) sounds was alright but quite flabby and lose but the feel was all wrong maybe it just needed a good set up or something but it was definitely a pain in the arse to play!
