The Les Paul Standard 50s models are part of Epiphone's new Inspired by Gibson Collection and recreate the sound of 1950s era Les Pauls. Featuring a classic Mahogany Body with a Maple cap and Mahogany neck with long neck tenon. Powered by ProBucker humbuckers with 50s style wiring and CTS electronics.

Epiphone's long friendship with Mr. Les Paul began in 1940 when Les built one of the world's first solid body electric guitars while working nights at the original Epiphone factory in Manhattan. Les' first solidbody guitar, nicknamed "the Log", would go on to inspire the Les Paul Standard, what many consider the greatest electric guitar ever made.

"Excellent Les Paul !!!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I was very excited to see the new inspired by Gibson line, this guitar lives up to the hype !! The pro buckers are really good , no need to swap Pups, in the past this would be a given. Fit and Finish are great. New headstock design is great , I was never a fan of the old headstock. Action was decent out of the box but I easily adjusted it to my liking. Tuners are better than ever, very stable. Love the baseball bat neck , reminds me of the first Les pauls I played back in the day !
