The Les Paul Standard '60s models from Epiphone's Inspired by Gibson Collection recreate the sound of 1960s era Les Pauls -- featuring a classic mahogany body with a maple cap, Grover tuners, and powered by ProBucker humbuckers with 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.

I've been a superstrat (Primarily Ibanez RG's) player since the RG 550 came out in the late 80's. I always swore off Gibson/Epi's especially the LP's. I just thought they were trendy and bulky etc. My daughter bought my the 60's Epi for Xmas this year in bourbon. All I can really say is I get it now. My mind is blown. I am having a hard time putting it down. Hands down probably the best stock guitar I've ever owned or played. Nothing needs to be changed on it. It looks amazing, feels amazing sounds amazing. I might have to buy the other colors as well. I love the neck, i've played the 50's at a major guitar chain that recently filed BK (not mentioning names), but the neck on the 50's is like a baseball bat, I get some people like that. I prefer the neck on the 60's, it's a bit slimmer and fast. I can't say enough good things about this guitar.
I'm shocked as to how good these pups sound.
The entire guitar is amazing.
Ease of Use
the guitar sounds great no matter what genre. I play jazz and blues in standard tuning, I can tune it down to D or even Drop C, (it stays in tune, doesn't take much readjusting which is great) and I can crank it up and chug the heck out of it and it sounds great.
Surprisingly YES!!
For this price.. I might have to buy more.. AMAZING!
