Epiphone Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar
Get the look, feel and tone of one of the most iconic guitars without breaking the bank, welcome to the Epiphone Les Paul Standard.
The Les Paul Standard starts with a solid mahogany body that is topped with a plain maple veneer set off with a cream binding. The mahogany set-neck has an ultra playable SlimTaper 'D' neck profile that is complimented with 22 medium jumbo frets and a 24.75 scale. The fingerboard has a modern 12" radiuspau ferro fretboard, making for a hugely playable neck and ideal for those upper fret bends without any unnecessary choking.
The design of the Les Paul in conjunction with a pair of humbucker pickups is how you get that legendary tone - those sweet, thick singing lead tones, crunchy rhythms and heavy power chords can be had in spades thanks to the onboard Alnico Classic/Classic Plus Humbuckers. These specially designed Epiphone pickups utilize the highest quality parts and are built using double vacuum waxing process for a quiet free operation.
As for hardware, well the Epiphone Les Paul Standard doesn't fall short here either. The rock solid LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar allow for a fully adjustable tailpiece that has stood the test of time - all 50 years, whilst the Grover machine heads, Gold Tophat knobs and famous bell shaped truss rod cover all add that a touch of class and reliability that Epiphone guitars are renowned for.
If you're hankering after a Les Paul on a budget, with licensed styling and all the iconic tones you could dream of then the Epiphone Les Paul Standard is a superb option.
