It glistens beautifully under the light with its genuine flame top, and the shiny nickel hardware is gorgeous too. In the pickup slots, it's got two Epiphone Alnico Classic PRO humbucking pickups that deliver warm tones through a clean channel, and rich, crunchy distortion when you want to break that tone up. Epiphone makes great Les Paul guitars, and with the Standard Plus Top PRO, they've delivered another great instrument with power and beauty that is way more than skin deep.

Solid Construction Means Solid Tone

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Top PRO combines a solid mahogany back with a hard maple top to create an instrument of great warmth and resonance. The hand-set neck is true to the deep-set design that made the Les Paul an industry-defining instrument in the first place. The maximized contact between the neck and body assures a great sustain on every note. The top itself will stun everyone in the room with its bright and evocative sunburst pattern, available in a variety of finishes.

A Fast and Friendly Neck Shape

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Top PRO guitar features the SlimTaper neck with the shallow D shape that emerged in the 1960s, offering players a slimmer, faster design than the 50s-era instruments. With a 12-inch radius fingerboard and 1.68-inch width at the nut, the neck on the Standard Plus Top Pro is designed to feel solid yet playable in your hands.

The Highest Quality Electronics Onboard

The Epiphone ProBucker humbuckers onboard promise that this axe serves up an immediately recognizable Les Paul tone the first time you plug in. The tone is said by many to deliver the best sound of any Epiphone pickup yet! It's cool and clear, and immediately warms up when you're running into a fuzz box or a raging tube amp. Another super-cool feature: the two push/pull tone knobs allow for series/parallel pickup switching in both pickups. Essentially, this allows you to get a single-coil-type sound from your Les Paul's humbuckers!

Beautiful Hardware Accents

The Les Paul Standard Plus Top PRO comes complete with shiny nickel Locktone Tune-o-matic bridge, stopbar, and tuners to ensure great tuning stability. The ivory-colored frames around the pickups and the pearloid trapezoid inlays in the 22 fret neck stay true to a classic style.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (37 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "My blue dragon"
Overall: First let me say the reason I call it my blue dragon is, 1. it's blue, 2. it roars, 3. it's smokin' hot. I love this guitar it sounds great, looks great and plays great. Setup was almost perfect out of the box. I had a little buzzing but a slight adjustment to the neck took care of it. I did quite a bit of research before deciding on this one and the consensus that this was a good bang for the buck was right on target. I got the "transparent blue" model. Well here is the thing. The image on almost all sites I visited, including Epiphone, is the wrong one. The guitar in the video, thanks zZounds, is the correct one. It is a blue sunburst design and it is beautiful. When you see this baby for real you'll agree. I really cannot think of anything bad to say. Oh and zZounds is awesome. It arrived quickly and in perfect condition.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Excellent value"
Overall: First of all this guitar sounds professional. The new pickups sound, to me, very similar to the PAF pickups played by many of the legends of classic rock. The coil tapping is a bonus and adds flexibility to this great guitar. The electronics are good quality, much better than the electronics in my old Epi Les Paul. The tone and volume pots have a good usable taper unlike the cheap linear taper pots used on some budget instruments. The Grover tuning machines and the tune-o-matic bridge keep this guitar in tune. The clips on the stop bar make changing strings easy as my old Epi always had me scared that I would drop the stop bar tail piece and scratch the finish. As for the finish, it is top notch. Mine came with beautiful flame figuring in the maple top. The flaming is not fake and has a beautiful depth to it. The heritage cherry sunburst is well done and really make the maple top shine. The fretboard it smooth with well fitted frets. The edges of the frets are finished perfectly and do not have any rough spots. Out of the box the guitar needed no set up as the action, intonation, and pickup height were well within spec, no fret buzz what so ever with enough room to lower the action for those who prefer low action. The only thing I would suggest is at your first string change tape off the fretboard and pickups, keeps the small bits of metal from the steel wool from sticking to the pickups a real pain to remove, and give the frets a quick polish with some ultra fine steel wool as the frets are a bit rough. It only takes a few minutes once the strings are off and the painters tape is in place. You could just play the guitar alot and have the same effect but they are rough enough to require extra effort to bend the strings. If your in the market looking for a beautifully finished Les Paul that has the sound and sustain of guitars costing three times the price you can't go wrong with the Epiphone Les Paul standard plus top PRO with the Probucker pickups.
