Loaded with a pair of Open Alnico Classic Humbuckers, the Epiphone Les Paul Standard produces a powerful yet balanced tone that is ideal for classic rock styles. With its vintage tonality, the Les Paul Standard yields 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 Les Paul Standard a warm and resonant tone with great sustain, as well as plenty of depth. Mahogany as a tonewood 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 mahogany is partnered with a maple top, which extends the mahoganys tonal range with enhanced brightness and twang.
The Les Paul Standard 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 Les Paul Standard 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.
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'. Historically Les Pauls have been used by some of the most legendary guitarists the world has known, players like Peter Frampton, Pete Townsend, Jimmy Page and Marc Bolan to mention a few. Now most notably used by the likes of Slash and Black Label Society's Zakk Wylde and Green Day's Billy Joe Armstrong. 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.
