Classic. Timeless. Legendary. The Epiphone Les Paul Standard has everything you expect from a Les Paul electric guitar.

Epiphone's history with 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 Street in New York City, created what might have been the world's first solidbody electric guitar, better known as "The Log." Over the years, Les continued to work closely with Epiphone luthiers reviewing new product ideas and offering suggestions. “Epiphone always made a good guitar,” Les often said.

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard has all of the features that have made the Les Paul one of the icons of rock.  It has the same set neck construction as any of the classic Gibson Les Pauls, so that the neck and body act as a single piece of wood. This, along with the dense mahogany body with a maple top gives the Epiphone Les Paul Standard the rich tone and long sustain players have come to expect from a fine Les Paul guitar. You also get the classic look of white binding around the body and neck.

Like other classic Les Pauls, the Epiphone Les Paul Standard has a pair of great sounding humbucking pickups with powerful Alnico V pickups and the classic trapezoid configuration of two volume and two tone control knobs. This lets you make fast tone and volume adjustments while holding a note. Its chrome hardware includes the famous Tune-o-matic bridge/Stopbar tailpiece combo for monstrous sustain and quality Grover tuning machines. Case not included.  

Features:       

  • Body: Mahogany
  • Neck: Hand-set, mahogany
  • Scale: 24.75”
  • Fingerboard: Rosewood
  • Fingerboard Inlay: Trapezoid
  • Nut Width: 1.68”
  • Neck Pickup: Alnico humbucker
  • Bridge Pickup: Alnico Classic humbucker
  • Tailpiece: Locking Tune-o-matic Stopbar
  • Machine Heads: Grover
  • Case: Not included

    Solidly built. Has some weight, but not as heavy as a Gibson. Very nice clean finish. Its a steal at that price.

      Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar:

      Bought one of these online and although it looked like my other custom 1990 epi les paul black beauty, the pickups were deadish and the neck was fretting out. had it set up but it still frets out, played it for a few years and now trying to sell it.

          Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar:

          Look. Epiphone does not get enough credit for their guitars. Gibson owns Epiphone. This guitar, the Epiphone Les Paul Standard is an amazing guitar. I also own an Epiphone Les Paul Special II and obviously the Standard kicks butt. When I finally got the guitar in the mail, the action was set way too high for my taste, but that's not the guitar's fault. So I put on fresh strings after adjusting the action and voila, the guitar has been set up properly. Try the guitar out for yourself at a retailer shop. I hook my Standard up to a Line 6 Spider IV 30 and man does she sound amazing. The Epiphone Les Paul Standard can get the job done. Trust me.

          Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar:

          Just a quick E tune and straight out the BOX I was Jamming !! The guitar like most les pauls is a little heavy, but not as heavy as my epi Custom les Paul. The finish is excellent. A perfect Gold Top !! LIKE A DREAM COME TRUE FOR ME ! Paint, Binding, neck, tuners all are great. It's truly rare for me to get a guitar that didn't need any adjustments while new. My only con....the strings are heavy and Raspy.I prefer a lighter gauge. Otherwise...."I'M IN LOVE" !

              Great guitar, my first electric after learning on acoustic for six months. Was originally gonna buy Epiphone Les Paul 100 but made a trip to store and got deal that was way to good to pass up. Beautiful to look at, sounds amazing and great craftsmanship. Look forward to having this LP Standard for many years.

                great guitar with really good pickups, isn't too good for playing a rock concert, because of the weight, and for the price its just great, but at first something might not work, it will work about minutes later, when you get the hang of it
