Premium Components and Authentic Features
Epiphone's Les Paul Standard has been a fan- favorite for over a decade. Starting with the same successful recipe, Epiphone significantly steps it up on this Limited Edition "1959" reissue. True to its heritage, the neck features an authentic, 1950's rounded “D” profile. Often referred to as "the baseball bat", this neck feels beefy yet comfortable in your hands while adding warmth and sustain with its greater mass. Epiphone hand fits this solid mahogany neck into the body with a historically accurate "deep-set" long neck tenon that extends well into the neck pickup cavity creating even more tone and sustain. And just like traditional Les Paul Standards, the back of the body is solid mahogany while the top is a carved Hard maple cap. Then a premium AAA grade flame maple veneer is attached capturing the true "beauty of the burst".
