Epiphone Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar, Faded Cherry Sunburst, W/ Hardshell CaseEpiphone
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 is included.

About our set-ups: We do our best to accurately describe the current set-up and playability of each guitar. However, due to temperature and humidity changes the guitar may experience while in transit, it's possible for the neck and body to slightly "adjust" along the way. After all, guitars are primarily wooden instruments that are highly susceptible to their environment. By the time you receive the guitar, un-box it and tune it up, you may find that it needs a slight adjustment to get it back to the set-up specs that we originally described in our listing. Please keep this in mind before purchasing.
