Epiphone Les Paul Express

Epiphone's Les Paul Express captures the look, sound and feel of traditional Les Pauls in a slightly smaller package that's perfect for younger players or for travel use. The neck's scale length is only 22" as compared to 24.75" on a full-size Les Paul, and its upper frets are easy to reach thanks to the body cutaway.

The result is a guitar that's more comfortable to play -- especially in smaller hands -- while still maintaining good string tension when tuned to standard "E."

Small Body, Fully Functional

Epiphone has incorporated unique design features into this small powerhouse. Bolted to the body is a hard maple neck, which gives the guitar a little more high-end "bite" to offset the slightly looser string tension due to the shorter scale length. The combination of the fully-adjustable "fixed" bridge with a string-through body design fits well on the smaller size body while adding sustain and making string changes a breeze.

Premium Hardware and Electronics

With the slightly looser string tension, it's even more important to have great tuners. Epiphone designed the Express with premium, 14:1 ratio diecast tuners to give you excellent tuning accuracy and stability.

The Les Paul Express features an Epiphone 650R humbucker in the neck position and an Epiphone 700T in the bridge position. Both pickups feature Alnico pickups that give you an incredible variety of tone colors and sounds.

"A very nice Les Paul, for such a low price!"
Firstly, to stabilize the tuning properly of an electric guitar, you must “stretch” the strings, by lifting the guitar by it’s new set of strings. You’ll have to re-tune the guitar after you institute this “old school” method a few times, and even if the tuners are not the best around, the guitar will hold it’s intonation. You should also push the strings along the fretboard with your fingers, to create the standard Blues and Rock tremolo/vibrato style. Let’s face it, this guitar is not “top shelf”, but it serves it’s purpose beautifully! A good all around gigging and practicing axe, and lightweight as well! More importantly, it has great tone, (no matter what the prima donnas’ and guitar snobs suggest). As far as the frets go, I can live with slight sharpness on the edges, and it’s no big deal. It’s great to have a good knock-around guitar, that you can take to gigs, and not have to worry about it being stolen. I’ve bought a number of low budget Epi Pauls over the years, and never was embarrassed playing them on stage. By the way, if you are a good player, you can get away with any cheap guitar as your main axe, or part of your collection! I love it, play it, and recommend it! Get yourself one!!!
