The Epiphone Les Paul Modern is from the Inspired by Gibson Collection. It takes the classic guitar and supercharges it, delivering a selection of contemporary appointments that'll appeal to the cutting edge players.
The Les Paul Modern has the classic combination of a mahogany body topped with a carved, plain maple top. The body features weight relief, great for those long gigs, in addition to a new modern contoured heel for easier access to the upper frets.
Married to the body is a mahogany neck with an asymmetrical SlimTaper shape. Epiphone have paired with the ebony fingerboard which is set with 22 frets medium jumbo frets and trapezoid inlays.
The Les Paul Modern comes fitted with a versatile and modern twist on the standard Les Paul electronics setup. The ProBucker 2 (neck) and a ProBucker 3 (bridge) humbucker pickups are wired through the traditional 4-way control section, with push/pull pots giving you access to coil-splitting and phase switching, with the addition of a treble bleed circuit too.
As for hardware, the Epiphone Les Paul Modern comes with Grover locking Rotomatic tuners, clear top hat knobs, and a Locktone ABR bridge and Stopbar tailpiece combination.
