In honour of the longstanding relationship between Les Paul and Epiphone, the guitar manufacturer has created the memoriam, Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus Outfit. This guitar brings together Epiphone’s ethos of quality and value, Les Paul’s design mind, and a recreation of the original PAFs in the Gibson USA ’57 classic humbuckers.
A hard maple top and a solid mahogany body make the legendary combination that provide the warmth and clarity you would expect of a Les Paul. Joined to this is the Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus Outfit ‘s solid maple neck shaped to the 1960s SlimTaper profile. This neck has been hand fitted and extends all the way into the neck pickup cavity, where it is glued in, for exceptional neck-to-body contact. This is topped with a rosewood fingerboard, which has 22 medium-jumbo frets and pearloid trapezoid inlays.
Sustain is enhanced by the Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus Outfit’s classic combination of a LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, while tuning is kept solid with the employment of 18:1 ratio premium Grover 106 Series Locking Rotomatic machine heads.
A fitting tribute to Les Paul and to get the most of the tonewoods, the Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus Outfit is equipped with PAF recreations, Gibson USA '57 Classic humbuckers.
Situated in the neck position, the '57 Classic offers full, even response even when utilising their impressive crunchy tone, along with giving you the warmth you would expect. This is paired with a '57 Classic Plus in the bridge that has extra turns, making for a hotter pickup. Both feature Gibson's special Alnico II magnets, vintage enamel coated wire, nickel-plated pole pieces, nickel slugs, maple spacers, and vintage-style braided wiring.
The Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus Outfit takes the possibilities even further by incorporating 4-conductor pickup wiring in its electronics. This addition gives you the option to switch the wiring between series and parallel, via the guitar’s tone knobs, for more tonal options.
