The Goth Les Paul Studio is the ultimate slab of dark magic with all the classic features of a Les Paul finished in Pitch Black satin, black hardware, and open coil Alnico Classic Pickups.

Epiphone's history with the legendary guitarist and innovator Les Paul dates back to the early 1940's when Les, working late at night at the Epiphone factory on 14th St. in New York City, created what might have been the world's first solid-body electric guitar, better known as "The Log." Over the years, Les continued to work closely with Epiphone by reviewing new product ideas and offering suggestions. “Epiphone always made a good guitar,” Les liked to say fondly.
The Les Paul Studio was an important innovation of Les Paul’s classic dream guitar. As the name implies, the Les Paul Studio was geared toward studio musicians who desired a basic, unadorned Les Paul that weighed less than vintage Standard models. Introduced in the early ‘80s, the Les Paul Studio instantly became a favorite for Les Paul lovers of all ages. The Epiphone Goth Les Paul Studio offers Les Paul fans a classic favorite with a fantastic dark Goth look.

The Epiphone Goth Les Paul Studio features a solid mahogany body and deliver the classic tone and sustain that can only come from a "real" Les Paul. Like all Epiphone Les Paul's, and unlike less costly designs, the Epiphone Les Paul Studio features a 14 degree headstock that gives you more pressure at the nut for more sustain with less tuning hang-ups caused by "string-tree" gadgets. A plain rosewood fingerboard with XII at the 12th fret complete the Goth Les Paul Studio look and the hand-set mahogany neck delivers outstanding string-to-body resonance while medium-jumbo frets add to the smooth and sustained tone.

A pair of open Alnico Classic Humbucker Pickups deliver a vintage vibe with rich, warm tone that give you that coveted Les Paul Studio sound. When winding their humbuckers, Epiphone utilizes a double vacuum waxing process that ensures quiet operation free from microphonic hum. The pickup is first placed in a specialized wax vacuuming system before the cover is placed on the unit to ensure that the wax fully penetrates to the very center of the pickup and solidifies all parts. After the cover is placed on, it is again given a second vacuum wax bath until the unit is completely saturated with wax. Epiphone uses only the highest quality parts for its pickups like ABS plastic bobbins, 1010 Cold Rolled Steel pole shoes and pole screws, Alnico magnets and the finest magnet wire available.

The Epiphone Goth Les Paul Studio features Epi's legendary rock solid hardware including the locking Tune-o-matic Stopbar fully adjustable bridge which remains a classic after 50 years. And now, Epiphone's updated, patent pending design auto locks the bridge and tailpiece in place with no tools needed! This also results in improved sustain. The Epiphone Les Paul Studio uses 1" diameter potentiometers for better "throw", longer life, and reliable service and our all-metal toggle switches use rugged spring-steel contacts to ensure years of reliable service and performance. Epiphone’s proprietary output jack features an improved contact shape and heavy-duty spring steel to increase reliability. And, all of our Les Paul Studios include Grover machine heads on our tuners for stability and long life.

      Comments about Epiphone Goth Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar:

      This axe is my second Epiphone. I must have tried six other guitars from different companies seeing if anything I like more then my first Epiphone. Ended up returning six guitars. I got this axe today and it is so user friendly. Started out playing Sink the Pink and it sounded spot on. The feel is awesome and it looks really cool. Very nice axe. Oh yea....the price can't be beat.

      Comments about Epiphone Goth Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar:

      This guitar has everything a 3000 dollar gibson does and in my mind is way better. I've played many gibson guitars and not one of them compare to how this guitar actually sounds. The only problem i had with it was one of the pickups would mess with me and not work but fixed it and it was a easy at home fix. BUY THIS GUITAR!!!!!
