Mahogany/Maple Set Neck Construction: A unique
combination of mahogany and maple give the Les Paul it's signature sound,
a sound that has defined rock and roll for over 50 years.
3+3 Headstock: More spacing and larger buttons
make our 3+3 headstock and tuner design easier and faster to use.
Tune-o-matic Bridge: Fully adjustable, the Tune-o-matic
remains a classic after over 50 years. Unlike guitars fitted with tremolos,
there are no tuning or restringing difficulties. Plus, tone and sustain are
improved because all string vibrations are transferred directly to the
Angled Headstock: Unlike less costly designs, all
Epiphone Les Pauls feature a 14 degree headstock that gives you more pressure
at the nut so you get more sustain with less tuning hang-ups caused by
Grover Machine Heads: All Epiphone guitars and
basses feature premium, precision tuners for ease of use, excellent tuning
stability and long life.
Quick-Connector: For unequaled reliability as well
as ease of service, Epiphone wiring harnesses feature quick-connectors.
All-Metal Toggle Switch: Proven for years to be
the most reliable, our all-metal toggle switches use rugged spring-steel
contacts to ensure years of reliable service and performance.
Full-Size Potentiometers: We're passionate about
performance. That's why our instruments use 1" diameter potentiometers for
better "throw", longer life and reliable service.
Output Jack: To increase reliability and ensure
consistent performance, our proprietary output jacks feature an improved
contact shape and heavy-duty spring steel.
Double Vacuum Waxing: Epiphone utilizes a vacuum
waxing process that ensures optimum performance. The pickup is first placed
in the 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 in wax.
Epiphone uses only the highest quality parts for it's pickups. ABS plastic
bobbins, 1010 Coil Rolled Steel pole shoes and pole screws, Alnico and ceramic
magnets and the finest magnet wire available.
