Description

Details

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard electric guitar is an exceptional guitar, offering the classic look, feel, and tone of its more expensive Gibson cousin, but comes in at a price that makes it a more attainable prospect for many guitarists.

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard includes the customary construction methods that give it that classic full-bodied sound. The back is built using mahogany to create a rumbling mid to low-end energy and enviable sustain. The top is made using maple, which has a crispness that cuts through the mahogany to ensure the overall tone never becomes overwhelmed by the power of the lower frequencies. The body on this particular model has a sophisticated ebony finish, whilst a white pickguard protects the lower bout of the body from unwanted scrapes.

Fitted to the body is a sturdy hand-set mahogany neck, which lends itself well to delivering and maintaining this model's impressive levels of sustain. The neck is shaped to the SlimTaper "D" profile, giving it a comfortable feel in the hand. Paired with the neck is a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard that is a joy to navigate, and thanks to the superb trapezoid position inlays, it's incredibly easy to do so. The medium-jumbo sized frets guarantee a balanced playing feel along the entire length of the neck, whilst the 12" fingerboard radius enables each and every string bend can be executed smoothly.

Hardworking Hardware

The hardware used on this guitar is just as impressive as the choice of tonewoods. A locking tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece create a seamless connection between the strings and body to uphold intonation and sustain beautifullly. At the top of the neck, the headstock is set at the traditional 14-degree angle, putting greater pressure on the nut to ensure tension of each string remains true throughout every performance. Grover tuning machines maintain tuning integrity and stability. Whether you're practising in your bedroom, jamming with mates, or hitting the clubs on a world tour, the Les Paul Standard is as reliable a guitar as you could hope for.

Electronics

The timbre and tonality of the mahogany/maple partnership is perfectly translated by the dual humbucking pickups. There is an Alnico humbucker in the neck position, and Alnico Classic humbucker in the bridge position. Each pickup has individual volume, and tone controls, whilst a 3-way pickup selector switch allows you to choose between either the neck or the bridge, or both together. What this means is that the Les Paul Standard has a vast tonal range to choose from. Whatever style of music you play, between these pickups and controls you'll find the perfect tone to suit.

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard is an incredible model, delivered at a ludicrously low price. The rich, complex tonality of the tonewoods is handled perfectly by the pickups. A well-balanced body shape meets the smooth playing feel of the neck. Everything about this guitar screams high quality, and from the bedroom to the stage it can meet your playing demands every step of the way.
