Choosing the right sound and style Les Paul

Over half a century after its introduction, the Les Paul is still arguably the world's most popular solid body electric guitar--an instrument no serious guitar player can do without in their collection. All Epiphone Les Pauls are true Les Pauls, designed with the same attention to detail and superior materials as vintage models. Whether you're a pro or a pro-at-heart, Epiphone has a Les Paul that's just right for you. And best of all, many Epiphone Les Pauls have been tested, critiqued, and refined by the man who invented the instrument--Mr. Les Paul.

"They are damn fine instruments, I swear by them!" said Les Paul in a classic interview with "People can buy one of my guitars no matter how much money they have. A kid can get an Epiphone and have something worth something, not a hunk-of-junk like the other brands. They can learn well on one and have it and play it the rest of their life. Epiphone is meeting standards of quality like Gibson, which I am proud to see. (Young folks) need a good guitar like an Epiphone so they won't get discouraged, so they will practice and work hard and enjoy their music."

Epiphone Les Pauls feature both Epiphone and Gibson designed pickups, rock solid hardware, beautiful finishes, and custom details found in modern-day custom Les Pauls but at a fraction of the price. And every Epiphone Les Paul comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty and 365/24/7 Gibson Customer Service.
