Epiphone's Les Paul Express captures the look, sound and feel of their famous Les Pauls, but in a slightly smaller package that's perfect for younger players or for travel use. The neck has the same basic dimensions of a full-size guitar but the scale length is only 22.0" as compared to 24.75" on a full-size Les Paul. The result is a guitar that's more comfortable to play - especially for smaller players - while still maintaining good string tension when tuned to standard "E".  

Epiphone has incorporated in some unique design features to this small powerhouse. The body is still carved from Mahogany, but the neck on the Express is okoume as opposed to the traditional Mahogany. This gives the guitar a little more of a brighter tone which effectively offsets the slightly looser string tension due to the shorter scale length. Additionally, the combination of the fully-adjustable "fixed" bridge with a string-through body design fits well on the smaller size body while adding sustain and making string changes a breeze. Finally, the neck is bolted in place securely using 4 recessed bolts set making upper fret access easier and very comfortable.

With the slightly looser string tension, it is important to have great tuners. Epiphone designed the new Express with premium, 14:1 ratio die-cast tuners to give you excellent tuning accuracy and stability.

Great little guitar!


Great little guitar, bought for my 21-year old daughter. Not too small to be practical - this isn't (necessarily) a child's instrument. I purchased online, but went to my local Sam Ash store to set up. All fittings seemed great for the low price, and a step up from the Les Paul SL.



My guitar was great!


OK.. This is a under $150. guitar so I am reviewing based on that. Shipped to me really fast. Brand new out of the box.. no flaws or damage. Fit and finish fine. Out of the box the intonation was spot on. No string buzz. Frets were decent and ends suitably polished, no sharp ends. Tuners a bit wonky but if you tune up to pitch they stay in tune, even with std. E tuning, and this with new, basic factory strings and being played just an hour. The pickups sounded good but I was playing through a solid state Blackstar 15w, so until I overdrive a tube amp I can't fully comment on them except they aren't bad. The strings will be replaced as I like slinky. 08 or. 09 as does Billy (don't work so hard) Gibbons, but this will require new tuners to hold in tune. I have had no problems that others describe and the mods I may do are strictly personal due that there are very few good 3/4 size electric guitars out there. This definitely not a toy, or kids guitar. Those who complain are guitar snobs or not reviewing this guitar for what it is... a travel size knock around instrument, not meant for professional giging, though with some mods it could be. Personally, I am going to put vintage pickup covers and change the mounts to cream. Mostly aesthetic, but for blues, the covers are warmer tone. I will also swap the tuners for Grover vintage LP ones though the stock ones work. Again partially aesthetic. I'm staying with the electronics for the moment as they work fine, but the pu selector toggle switch feels cheap so if it goes, I'll replace it. All my projected mods will cost about $60. if I install myself. Tack in another $100. if I have a guitar tech do it. So, at the most $160. if I do everything,brings it to around $300. inc. cost of guitar. My only alternative would be to purchase a Lotus/ESP/Edwards mini LP which are between $500.-$700. and 1/2 scale. If you are using the guitar at home, jam or throw in your car trunk, you can't go wrong, even stock.

Great starter guitar IF you know how to set it up.


Instrument was unplayable out of the box, so this is not suitable for a beginner guitarist. However, if you are experienced, this is a fantastic starter guitar as a gift for a child. This thing has a lot of beefy sounds for it's price.



Nice Little Guitar


Beginner to guitar. Tried to learn on acoustic but was having trouble with the my fingers, this 3/4 guitar makes learning much easier and without too big of an investment. Bought the Amplug AC30 with it and have had fun playing in the apartment without bothering the roommates. Would definitely recommend!

Great little starter


Unfortunately my son wanted the Squire Mini so I didn't end up keeping this but it is a great bag either way.
