Musikmesse 2010: Epiphone announce new Les Paul PlusTop PRO/FX guitar

Musikmesse 2010: New Epiphone Les Paul Plustop Pro/FX guitar debuted
Great deals on musical instruments

Epiphone have released a brand new model Les Paul guitar, the PlusTop PRO/FX guitar in time for Musikmesse 2010.

Since 1952, the Les Paul guitar has stood the test of time and been the choice of countless guitarists from Les Paul himself to Jimmy Page to Slash.

Today, Epiphone announces a new Les Paul model that?s sure to have the shredders in the crowd cheering.

The guitar is new Les Paul Plustop PRO/FX which combines all the great features and looks of a Les Paul but adds a double-locking Floyd Rose? tremolo and coil-tapping for an amazing combination of crunch and versatility.

As with all great Les Pauls, the PRO/FX features a solid Mahogany back with a highly flamed Maple top and a solid Mahogany neck.

It's hand-fitted and glued into the body for excellent neck-to-body contact and acting almost like one continuous piece of wood.

The neck features a SlimTaper D profile that's both comfortable and fast - but that?s where the new LP PRO/FX takes a departure from tradition.

Epiphone has added an original Floyd Rose Special double-locking tremolo that allows the guitarist to raise and lower pitch for classic "80's style" effects.

The body is routed out in back of the tremolo to allow for pitch raising up to 2-1/2 steps while the downward range is wide enough to get the strings slack.

In the neck position is the Alnico Classic humbucker that provides warmth and subtle tone with a full, even response that doesn't hold back when you need that classic humbucker crunch!

A perfect companion to the Classic, it is over-wound for slighter higher output without sacrificing it's rich, vintage tone.
