New Electric Les Pauls and SG Stir Up the Industry
Last month at Summer NAMM '17 in Nashville, Epiphone introduced three new electrics, the Les Paul SL™ ($99), the Special VE™ SG ($169) and the Les Paul Studio LT™ ($249). All three Epiphone solid bodies feature powerful Ceramic pickups for the classic look and sound of rock's most iconic guitars, and all at unheard of prices in an array of color finishes to fit any occasion.
The reaction from fans and pros to the Les Paul SL, Les Paul Studio LT, and the Special VE has been so overwhelming that when Premier Guitar got their hands on the new Les Paul SL, they rushed it over to longtime Nashville Star bandleader John Bohlinger to review. Bohlinger had just arrived home from tour but once he plugged in the SL, he got on camera right away to tell the world. "Simply lovely," said Bohlinger. "Back when I was a kid, the very first guitar I ever bought was an Epiphone Genesis which by today's standards would have been $1,000. I saved for years. Now this is a $100 guitar but man--I would gig with it! Pretty rich. The pickups have their own thing. It sounds killer."
