This affordable Epiphone uses two uncovered humbucker pickups to deliver the quintessential sound of Gibson's most iconic model.

Classic Les Paul Shape and Construction
With its single cutaway design, mahogany body, and maple top, this guitar distills the Les Paul down to its most basic form. Like most Les Pauls to come before it, the Les Paul 100 offers inviting playability with a smooth mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard, and comfortable weight-distribution. The body is a bit slimmer than a standard Les Paul, which makes it all the easier to hold and play. Rounded out with a classic stopbar tailpiece and tune-o-matic bridge, this guitar maintains all the Les Paul features that guitarists have flocked to since 1952.

Dial in a myriad of different tones with the dual volume and tone controls and three-way pickup selector.
