We Think These Are The Best Les Paul Copies Out There!
The Al-2000 and Al-2500 are great
guitars period. Of course that is my opinion. Being the lover of a good deal that I am, I would say that an
argument could be made that the Al-2000 and Al-2500 are the best guitars ever made when you consider how little
they cost. Alright, I know that may be a bit of a stretch but hopefully you get what I mean. These are darn good
guitars and darn good Les Paul copies!
If you are looking to really step it
up a notch and get a guitar that would be on par, or even above par, of a high end Epiphone Les Paul, maybe like
Epiphone’s ultra LP, than take a serious look at the Al-3000 or higher.

These are premium guitars! I would
venture to say that you would probably have to pay two to three times more for a guitar of this quality that is
an Epiphone or Gibson. So if you can live with a Les Paul
copy guitar that doesn’t have the Epiphone or Gibson name on it than you will be extremely happy
with an Al-3000.
The Al-3000 is made up of two piece
center jointed solid mahogany. The top is 1/16” AA grade Maple whereas the Al-2500 only uses A grade Maple for
the tops. The body of the guitar is finished with a triple white binding with a single white binding on the neck
and a the triple white binding continuing on the headstock.
Instead of the ceramic covered pickups
used in the Al-2000 and 2500, Alnico V covered humbucker pickups are used for improved sound. The wiring
of the Al-3000 is also improved. Like the lower Al’s the guitar comes with two tone and two volume knobs but
it also has high voltage pots, brass shafts and 4 conductor wire for even better sound.
Grover 18 to 1 ratio tuners are
standard so the guitar stays in tune. Instead of a 2 piece Canadian Maple the neck is made of one piece
Mahogany. The fingerboard is upgraded from Indian Rosewood to Ebony and the neck inlays are made of Abalone
rather than the Mother of Pearl or Pearloid used on the lower models.
The frets on the Al-3000 are the same
in size as the lower Al’s (2.7mm) but as an added feature they have been hand filed at the factory. The nut has
also been upgraded from a graphite nut to a bone nut.
As with the other Al’s the trus rod is
dual action. The bridge and tail are die cast nickel or gold and the strings are GHS .010 - .046 gauge strings.
The Al-3000 is a solid piece of equipment. I am not in a band but I would definitely think this could be used as
a gig guitar.
The Al-3000 is also offered with
different neck tapers so if you prefer a slimmer neck or a wider neck than standard you can get
I think my next guitar will be an
Al-3000. I almost feel like I should go practice so my playing will be worthy of such a sweet guitar! In my
opinion, this is a premium Les Paul copy electric guitar.
