The Epiphone Les Paul Standard 50s Electric Guitar in Heritage Cherry Sunburst is part of Epiphone's new Inspired by Gibson Collection, designed to recreate the sound of a 1950s era Les Paul. With period correct parts and finishes, these guitars imitate one of the greatest electric guitars ever created, giving you vintage aesthetic with modern reliability.
A solid Mahogany body paired with a Maple cap gives this guitar the look and sound of a vintage instrument. The warmth and sustain of Mahogany make a perfect combination with the bright and snappy response of Maple, resulting in a tone machine that will satisfy all of your rock, blues and metal needs. With the Les Paul Standard 50s, there's no weight relief so you'll feel the heft of this guitar, which is all part of the Les Paul experience.
The Les Paul Standard 50s has a Mahogany neck to match the body with a long neck tenon to promote stability and sustain. Shaped to the 59 Rounded Medium C profile, this neck gives you a classic feel in hand, broad enough for chord playing but sleek enough to let those blues lead licks sizzle off the 22 fret fretboard.
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. CTS Electronics with a 50s style wiring harness ensure that vintage tone abounds here, with a three-way pickup selector plus two volume and tone knobs giving you plenty of scope for sonic sculpting.
The Les Paul Standard 50s has a LockTone ABR Tune-o-Matic bridge with a Stopbar tailpiece to ensure fantastic intonation and an easily adjustable action. Working in conjunction with the Epiphone Vintage Deluxe 18:1 ratio machine heads you get tuning stability that won't let you down no matter how hard you strum.
The Epiphone Les Paul Standard 50s Electric Guitar in Heritage Cherry Sunburst gives you classic rock vibes in a thoroughly modern instrument, lending you the best of both worlds for your musical endeavours. Sure to make fellow musicians double-take, the premium sound matched with incredible value for money makes this guitar a very tempting proposition indeed.
