A Les Paul Electric Guitar Gone Goth

The Les Paul body shape is as famous as its name, and with the Epiphone Goth Les Paul electric guitar, you'll shoulder a classic-looking axe in intriguing Gothic fashion. A mahogany body keeps those tones nice and dark, and a pair of Alnico V humbuckers eagerly await to articulate your fingers' fury. The mahogany neck on this guitar features 22 medium jumbo frets over a smooth ebony fingerboard, and dual tone and volume controls give you independent control of each pickup. There's even a signal kill switch on one of your tone controls to create a cool stuttering effect.

Les Paul Gone Goth

Epiphone has been manufacturing instruments since 1873, playing an active role in the cultural impact guitars and other stringed instruments have had over the century. Epiphone has taken the popularity of Gibson's Gothic series of Les Paul guitars, and added their own dark spin to the table. The result is an axe perfect for rock that isn't afraid to get a bit gloomy or sinister.

Mahogany Likes it Dark

You'll feel the weight of this guitar's mahogany body once you shoulder it for the first time. Mahogany is a heavy tonewood that really pushes those low and middle frequencies. Mahogany's emphasis on depth makes it a great instrument for a darker shade of rock, and when you really push the gain, you'll get loads of sustain perfect for generating some monstrous feedback.

Comfy Mahogany Neck in C Shape

The mahogany neck on your Epiphone Goth Les Paul features 22 medium jumbo frets fitted over a smooth ebony fingerboard. The C shape makes for a comfy fit as your hand makes its way across each string and fret. A stark "XII" inlay marks your 12th fret in an ominous yet intriguing style.

Two '57 Classic Alnico V Humbuckers

Packed inside this guitar's mahogany body are a pair of Alnico V humbuckers. Both of these pickups feature that awesome late-'50s tone perfect for rhythm or lead. Alnico V magnets generate a somewhat hotter sound than Alnico II magnets, with slightly scooped mids and just enough bite for when you want to it to go to 11.

Features:

- Les Paul body shape
- Deep-sounding mahogany body
- Mahogany neck in C shape
- Ebony fingerboard
- 22 medium jumbo frets with tight action
- Scale length of 24.75"

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (248 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Les Paul for the price!"
Sound: The pickups are great, right out of the box. Mine has the '59s on it. I changed to my favorite strings and bam, that was it. The sustain on this guitar lasts forever. Feature: No special features needed. The goth look is great - matte black and black metal. Ease of Use: Plays like charm. Out of the three guitars I currently own, I love playing this guitar. Quality: Epiphone quality is top notch. After I bought this guitar, I went out and bought another Epiphone. I'm sold on the company. Great stuff. Value: I don't think you can get a better Les Paul for the price. Manufacturer Support: Never needed it. The Wow Factor: Matte black. I get a lot of lookers at my guitar. Overall: Overall 10! If you buy it you won't be disappointed.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Product For the Price"
Sound: I've been a guitarist for thirty-plus years. I've owned a lot of guitars. Plenty of "really expensive" ones, too. This guitar is really great for the price. Seriously. As some of the other reviewers have noted, the Alnico Classic Plus(TM) Humbucker pickups are pretty hot (I can't track down the actual voltage but I'd say the bridge pickup runs 250+mV, anyway), but they are a tad bit noisy (which could possibly just be a result of the wiring (I haven't had a chance to shield it or anything, yet), which can be easily fixed (with the aforementioned shielding)). I'm probably going to opt for a couple DiMarzios or perhaps Seymour Duncans... just personal taste. For the casual player, though, the tone on this guitar out of the box is really, really great. Very crisp on the bridge and very mellow on the neck. Feature: Mahogany, mahogany, mahogany... I've read reviews here and there stating that this is a "neck-thru" guitar - it's not. It's a set neck... which is just fine and dandy - it's really solid and has a great feel to it. The "Killpot" is a unique touch - by pushing on the pot, it kills the signal, much like flipping the pickup selector with one of the volumes down, making for a nice little effect if ya need it, saving SERIOUS unnecessary wear on the pickup selector. The pickguard is a little cheap, but again, an easily rectified situation. Ease of Use: As stated earlier, this guitar is capable of great tone, the same great tone its big brother is capable of. Quality: Other than the cheap-ish pickguard, the guitar is really solid and very well-built. The internal electronics all appear well-done for an "assembly line guitar," also. Value: Honestly, it's a great value, even at a much higher price. Manufacturer Support: n/a The Wow Factor: This is a really aesthetically-pleasing guitar. The satin/matte finish is really attractive and well-done. The tuners on the guitar are Grover Rotomatics (look to be the midsize 305BCs) and not the "vintage" tuners that appear in the pic. That is a plus to me, because I'm not a very big fan of unsealed tuners. Overall: Bottom line - if you've got $2,500 laying around, yeah, buy the Gibson... but for this price, this is an amazing guitar right out of the box. Anyone worth their salt in the business will tell you so.
