Everybody wants a black Les Paul. Here it is especially for left-handed players in supurb quality! The undisputed King of Solidbody Electric guitars with a reign spanning six decades, the Epiphone Les Paul Standard is an eventual must for a guitarist's collection, because this model a lives up to its mammoth reputation of unmatched tone and sustain. Legendary guitarist and inventor Les Paul lends his signature to every real Les Paul guitar, authenticating his soveriegn design standards, so you know you are getting "the real thing". From the tone-rich, bound, Mahogany body with set, Mahogany neck and Rosewood fingerboard with traditional trapezoid inlays, to the rich, vintage tone provided by a pair of high-output Alnico Classic Humbuckerpickups, this guitar is the standard for all others. It also features Chrome hardware, Grover™ tuners, with our new Epiphone LockTone™ locking Tune-o-matic bridge and Stop-bar tailpiece that gives you even more sustain from the guitar famous for it.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Probably the most fantastic guitar I have ever owned (which has been a lot). Lives up to the Gibson father family name and truly looks and sounds spectacular! I'd recommend it to anyone who's looking for quality sound for a good price, Epiphones, Gibsons, Fenders, Gretsches and Rickenbackers are always to way to go for great sound in my opinion, but I play Beatles so that's probably why. I recommend it to any Beatles tribute artists as well as it looks and sounds the part with the right setup/control settings/strings! Hope to use this guitar for the rest of my life!
First of all, I am a completely new to electric guitars. I thought a humbucker was a Dairy Queen hamburger. I did learn how to play an acoustic guitar at a very basic level 30 years ago (and at least can tune a guitar), and I am pretty well versed on music theory, but this overall is an entirely new arena for me. I recently bought my first keyboard and landed on a Korg Kronos (which I LOVE), so I'm not shy about spending money to get the best sound possible rather than starting with a beginner instrument and then upgrading later.
So I went through the internal debate of Stratocaster versus Les Paul. There are tons of great guitars out there, but again from my beginner perspective, these both seemed to be logical choices to begin with. Many Youtube clips later, I finally chase the Les Paul (and to be perfectly honest, I liked the look of this particular Ebony model, so sadly it came down to appearance for me ... hey like I said, I'm as far from a guitar expert as you...
Nice guitar for the price. I upgraded from the LP-100 and it is better than that one. I plan on upgrading to Gibson or Seymour Duncan Alnico 2's for that PAF tone. Mine tips the scales at 91/2 pounds. I got a good one. With the new pickups it will sound awesome! As always Amazon.com is awesome too.
