The classic design of the Les Paul electric guitar is timeless. With a unique combination of mahogany and maple, the signature sound of the Les Paul has defined rock and roll for over 50 years. For over 130 years, Epiphone has been passionately designing and making guitars and basses built to perform. You can count on Epiphone to give you time-tested designs, top-quality electronics and consistent performance from models like the Les Paul.  


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 guitar.


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 "string-tree" gadgets.


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.
