The Epiphone Les Paul Modern Electric Guitar gives a new look and sound to the world's greatest electric guitar with a price that puts it firmly in the hands of every guitarist. From Epiphone's 'Inspired by Gibson' Collection, some stunning new finishes with high-end electronics and incredible specs make this guitar a serious value for money proposition.
Mahogany and Maple Classic Combo
Keeping in with the vintage aesthetic the Les Paul Modern has the archetypal guitar tonewood combination of a Mahogany body with a Maple Cap. As well as looking amazing this tonewood combination gets you the best of both types of wood, so all the warmth and sustain of Mahogany melds with the bright, snappiness of Maple to deliver something the tone-hounds will adore. This guitar features weight relief in the body, whereby chambers are drilled to help take the strain off your back. So no matter how long the show you'll be able to keep going without any weight-induced fatigue.
Asymmetrical Slim Taper Neck
Continuing with a more modern theme this guitar has an Asymmetrical Slim Taper neck which means on the bass side of the neck the profile is thicker whereas the treble side is thinner to promote fast playing. A contoured neck heel is also present allowing you to reach the upper register with ease, great for searing lead work. The neck is composed of Mahogany to match the body, ensuring fantastic resonance throughout the entire guitar. The 24-fret fretboard is comprised of Ebony which feels lavish under your fingers, marked by Trapezoid Inlays.
Two ProBucker Pickups deliver crisp and articulate tones, perfect for rock and the styles around it. There's no mud here, these pickups translate your playing in a clear fashion with a nice high output. The bridge pickup excels in the midrange whilst the neck gives plenty of body, with detailed low end and a bit of percussive treble tone. There's also coil-splitting and phase switch options accessible via push/pull knobs so a plethora of tone sculpting options are available for you to feast your ears on.
The Les Paul Modern has a LockTone ABR bridge with a Stopbar tailpiece to ensure fantastic intonation and an easily adjustable action. Working in conjunction with the Grover Locking Rotomatic tuners with Tulip Buttons and an 18:1 ratio, you get tuning stability that won't let you down no matter how hard you strum.
The Epiphone Les Paul Modern Electric Guitar not only looks and sounds the business but is available at a more than reasonable price. Want that rock and roll heritage without remortgaging your house or taking out a loan? Look no further.
