Details

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO Electric Guitar offers exceptional quality at an affordable price, making this a fantastic guitar for those who want a workhorse for touring with and versatile instrument in the studio. Combining highly versatile tone-shaping controls with robust hardware and a delightful playability ensures that the Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO will make a welcome addition to any guitarist's arsenal.

Classic Les Paul style

The Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO benefits from the single-cutaway body profile that we've all come to know and love. The body is built using mahogany, which establishes a rich and vibrant mid-range energy. Paired with this is a gorgeous AAA flame maple veneer top that not only creates a delightful visual aesthetic, but also provides a crisp high-end clarity that rounds out the tones beautifully. Elegant single-ply binding encircles the body top to complement the finish beautifully.

Fast-playing, comfortable neck

Joined to the body is a steady and reliable mahogany neck, which is shaped to the fast playing 1960's SlimTaper D-profile for a substantial yet manageable playing feel. Paired with the neck is a glorious pau ferro fingerboard, which is home to 22 medium-jumbo frets that are adorned with pearloid trapezoid position inlays to guide your way in style. The 12-inch fingerboard radius provides a flatter playing surface for executing seamless technique on.

Versatile ProBucker pickups

The Plustop PRO is equipped with a pair of Epiphone ProBucker 2 and 3 pickups fitted in the neck and bridge positions respectively. Thanks to push/pull coil-tapping, you can extract a vast array of tones with ease from this wondrous pair. Epiphone have gone to great lengths to ensure pristine tonal integrity by utilising sand-cast Alnico II magnets, high quality 4 conductor lead wire and vacuum wax potting to minimise the chance of dust causing electromagnetic interference. The same alloy as that used by Gibson - 18% nickel silver - has been employed to promote greater transparency and a crisp output. Whatever style of music you're tackling, the ProBuckers can segue between anything from country to heavy metal with the greatest of ease.

Gig-ready hardware

As noted above, the Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO is built to endure the rigours of the road. The body is home to a LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, which creates a seamless transition between strings and body for steadfast intonation and enduring sustain. The headstock is set to Epiphone's standard 14-degree angle, which puts greater pressure on the nut and contributes to the impressive intonation and sustain. Grover tuning machines with 18:1 gear ratio upholds tuning integrity precisely throughout the most demanding of performances.

Reviews
Posted on 17/08/2019 by Best value for money out there for a Les Paul - no question. I couldn't stretch to a Gibson and this is reputed to be the best alternative. On playing there is no doubt that it is. When I bought mine from Dawsons in Leeds I played several; and a Gibson LP ~Standard for comparison and there Epiphone PlusTop PRO was the best guitar I played that day. Pickups sound fantastic - real bluesy with grunt and bite, but with careful use of volume and tone it can be honeyed and smooth... Quality of the finish is incredible and the colour I ended up with (blood orange) really impresses. I can't put this guitar down now - it plays like a dream.

Can't fault the service at the shop either - excellent staff - attitude and knowledge. One problem is the hard case - it has a bright pink interior - which classes terribly with the red of the guitar!!!

I can recommend this guitar to anyone... the 2019 iteration of this model is as good as Epiphone can be outside the Custom Shop.
