Epiphone Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar, Gloss Black FinishEpiphone
The original idea for the Epiphone Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar was to create a somewhat lower-priced Paul by dispensing with some cosmetics. The result was an especially clean, handsome guitar with all the Les Paul essentials. Newly designed in 2004, the Studio now has a thicker body that matches its namesake, hot open-coil Alnico Classic humbuckers, a set mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard, and mahogany body with carved top. The LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and LockTone stopbar tailpiece add more sustain and make string changing easier.
Condition: The guitar arrived from the manufacturer with a slight fretboard lift. In other words the fretboard wasn't properly attached to the neck at the factory. Certified technicians masterfully corrected the flaw, attaching the fretboard properly to the neck, (as the pictures clearly show). The guitar looks in mint condition and plays like a dream. The action could easily be adjusted to fit the preference of any player, but comes low and fast. The neck is straight and all electronics are in perfect working order. The back of the headstock is stamped "used" and original serial # has been replaced with a new one.

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.
