Loaded with a pair of Open Alnico Classic Humbuckers, the Epiphone Goth Les Paul produces a powerful yet balanced tone that is ideal for classic rock styles. With its vintage tonality, the Les Paul Studio has that iconic sound that is loved by many of music's legends. The humbuckers deliver tight, sparkling highs and a deep, full-bodied low end, for a wonderfully versatile tone.
A mahogany body gives the Goth Les Paul Studio a warm and resonant tone with great sustain, as well as plenty of depth. Mahogany delivers good levels of grind and bite, which works exceptionally well with punchy rock music. The mahogany body also provides durability, and a tone that will mature over the years for a long lasting investment.
The Goth Les Paul Studio Guitar's neck is made from beautiful mahogany which is sturdy and provides good durability. The mahogany gives the guitar a richer focus, with warm and full undertones; and it is coupled with an equally as warm rosewood fingerboard, ideal for creating articulate tones that are soft yet punchy.
The Epiphone Goth Les Paul is equipped with rock solid hardware, consisting of a Locking Tune-O-Matic bridge and StopBar tailpiece which is fully adjustable. They are locked in place, which works to keep your tone reliably in tune, and improves sustain. There are also Grover Tuners onboard for stability, and the metal 3-way toggle switch ensures years of sturdy use and performance.
This special edition of the Les Paul Studio includes stylish features such as a Pitch Black Satin finish on the body, headstock and hardware, a Celtic cross on the headstock and an "XII" inlay on the 12th fret. These features enhance the already iconic Les Paul design, to create a visually striking guitar that is certain to stand out from the crowd.
The Les Paul first entered the world in the early 1940s, when the legendary guitarist created the world's first solid body electric guitar that was known back then as 'The Log'. The Les Paul Studio was designed especially for artists who required a lightweight and more basic Les Paul, that would be more convenient for studio use. Introduced back in the early 80s, the Les Paul Studio instantly became a new alternative for Les Paul lovers of all ages and levels. Epiphone combines tradition, value and innovation to produce Les Paul Guitars that both look and sound unbelievably close to their Gibson counterparts, at a more affordable price.
