Complex Tone for the Serious Player
It's called classic for a reason… The Epiphone Les Paul Classic brings the world's most popular electric guitar to the forefront of modern music. From the 1950s to present day, this is tone that's stood the test of time.
Go from 0 – 100 with two signature humbucker pickups. Alongside an authentic vintage aesthetic, this breath-taking pair of open coil 'zebra' Alnico Pros bring a wealth of tonal textures to any style of playing. Whether you love hard rock, traditional blues, or anything in between, the Les Paul Classic offers tight, responsive lows, crunchy, pronounced mids, and glassy, bright highs. This is timbre that won't go unnoticed.
Versatility redefined. Elevate the iconic sound of the 50s to a whole new level. The Classic can do it all with CTS electronics, coil splitting, and phase switching. Want tone that shimmers and jangles? Looking for warm, balanced audio? Ready to switch up your style of playing? It's all possible, all of the time.
A Guitar that Shaped a Generation
Few guitars are as iconic as the Les Paul. With its single cutaway design and perfectly sculpted curves, it's easy to see why it took the 50s by storm. Now, it's been reinvented to usher in a new music revolution.
Crafted from solid mahogany, this is a body that sings with sweet sustain. Both pickups are mounted directly onto the maple top, resonating with the natural qualities of the wood. The results are obvious. Warm, textured tone that's as recognisable as it is unique. A huge feat that's made to look easy.
If there's one thing the Classic is known for, it’s its effortless playability. Whether you're a seasoned shredder or a laid back rhythm player, finger positioning is easy on an Indian Laurel fretboard that's been given the slim taper treatment. Up high, you have unlimited access to reach stratospheric lead lines, and down low, you can play chords in comfort for hours on end. This is about to change what you thought about playing the guitar.
Bridge the Gap Between Practicality and Perfection
The future of electric guitar. Epiphone have worked tirelessly not only to bring you enhanced playability, but to deliver tuning stability that far surpasses the industry standard.
Discover pitch perfect playing with the LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge. With the ability to adjust each string length using the corresponding screws, you can achieve impeccable intonation. There's a reason why Epiphone have kept this innovative design for over 60 years.
But the bridge can't take all the glory. Your strings will be singing in key thanks to Grover's signature Rotomatic machine heads. Admired worldwide, these tuning machines mean business. Rest assured that your tuning will stay rock solid, no matter what environment you find yourself playing in.
Tonal Control for the Versatile Player
You're not a one trick pony. So you need a guitar that can do it all. The Epiphone Les Paul Classic has been tried and tested across a myriad of genres, bringing its bespoke flair to each party.
Go from bright high end to rounded lows with the 3-way pickup toggle. This sensitive selector is everything you need to take your tone on a journey it won't forget.
Just like Bonnie and Clyde, two Tone pots work in harmony to bring depth and texture to your guitar sound. Dial your high frequencies with precision with full tonal control of each pickup. This is timbre that is sure to turn heads, no matter where you are.
