A "Vintage" Les Paul
The Les Paul Classic Worn has a solid Mahogany body with a Plain Maple Cap cut to the classic profile of a late '50s Les Paul. All Epiphone Les Pauls feature a 14-degree angled headstock that provides more pressure at the nut for longer sustain and better intonation without the hang-ups caused by "string-tree" gadgets. The Mahogany neck has an easy-to-play 60s era SlimTaper C profile with a worn open grain finish that combined with the worn color finish gives the Les Paul Classic Worn an elegant look. The neck has a 24.75" scale length, 22 medium jumbo frets, an Indian Laurel fingerboard with Trapezoid inlays, and a 12" fingerboard radius. The body and fingerboard have cream binding. The ABR nut is 1.68". Epiphone's famous sloped dovewing headstock has a "bell" shaped truss rod cover and Les Paul's iconic signature in gold silkprint along with an Epiphone '60s-era slanted logo in mother of pearl.
Alnico Classic PRO Humbuckers
The Epiphone Les Paul Classic Worn Collection features two open-coil "zebra" Alnico Classic PRO humbuckers with Alnico-V magnets, which provide a slightly higher output than vintage pickups and also have enhanced mids and highs. Each pickup has a Volume and Tone control with vintage-styled…
Gold 'Top Hats" knobs plus Epiphone's all-metal 3-way pickup selector switch.
Buck the Hum!Epiphone Alnico Classic PRO humbuckers utilize a double vacuum waxing process that ensures you quiet operation free from microphonic hum. The pickup is first placed in a specialized wax vacuuming system before the cover is placed on the unit to ensure that the wax fully penetrates to the very center of the pickup and solidifies all parts. After the cover is placed on, the pickup is given a second vacuum wax bath until the unit is completely saturated. Epiphone uses only the highest quality parts for pickups including ABS plastic bobbins, 1010 Cold Rolled Steel pole shoes and pole screws, Alnico magnets and the finest magnet wire available.
LockTone ABR Bridge and Stopbar TailpieceThe Les Paul Classic Worn comes with Epiphone's rock solid nickel hardware including a LockTone ABR bridge and Stopbar tailpiece combo that auto-locks the bridge and tailpiece in place with no tools needed. Tuning is fast and accurate with Grover Rotomatic machine heads with "kidney" buttons with an 18:1 tuning ratio.
