The Les Paul's style is a classic that has endured throughout the decades, growing to become one of the most coveted - if not the most recognisable - body shapes of all time. The Epiphone Les Paul 100 electric guitar draws inspiration from Les Paul's very own 1952 model. It is an absolute beauty, which has everything a beginner or a seasoned pro, could ask for.
As with all great Les Paul models, the body is a delightful combination of mahogany and maple. The mahogany back deliver a boisterous mid to low end charge, whilst the maple top guarantees that each and every note is articulate and crisp, tempering the mahogany's power and preventing any muddiness from creeping in. The heart and soul of the legendary Les Paul tone is born here.
The rugged and reliable mahogany neck, guarantees stable base for the beautiful rosewood fingerboard. The neck is carefully fitting with a tapered heel, this allows the guitar to rest more comfortable against the body, making it easier to play. The fingerboard is decorated with dot inlays, allowing you to navigate up and down the fretboard with stylish a guide. The fingerboard is set to a 12" radius, thus ensuring a responsive yet seamless surface on which to execute smooth string bends.
The Les Paul 100 is fitted with Alnico 650R and 700T humbuckers at the neck and bridge positions respectively. Whether you're a: chicken picker, flat picker, sweeper, shredder, tapper or strummer, this perfectly matched pair of beauties will ensure that the sound you're looking for can be achieved with minimal effort, allowing you to get on with what you do best. The tonal versatility on offer is staggering thanks to the range of controls - each pickup has an individual Volume and Tone pot - whilst the all-metal 3-way toggle switch allows you to pull out wailing solo tones, fat and creamy blues riffs and thick rock n' roll chunk. The only thing holding you back here is you imagination!
The excellent LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and StopBar tailpiece, work together beautiful to ensure a seamless connection between the strings and body, whilst the tuning integrity is upheld thanks to the splendid die-cast machine heads.
If you're looking for a no-nonsense electric guitar that produces lush tones in effortless style, then the Epiphone Les Paul 100 electric guitar is perfect.

This guitar is awesome; I would recommend this Epiphone to anyone, even to people who own a Gibson. If you are a beginner and you want the Les Paul look, go for this one.
