The Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Plustop Pro Electric Guitar features ProBucker Pickups with coil-tapping. Out of all of Les Paul's many achievements; inventor, guitarist, and hit recording artist, Les is most beloved among musicians for inspiring the Les Paul Standard, one of the most sought-after guitars in the world. And now, the Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO gives the legend a fresh start with ProBucker-2 and ProBucker-3 pickups with coil-tapping, and a AAA flame maple veneer top.

Epiphone's history with legendary guitarist and innovator Les Paul dates back to the early 1940s when Les, working nights at the Epiphone factory on 14th Street in New York City, created one of the first solid body electric guitars, better known as "The Log." Over the next 15 years, Les continued to develop his dream guitar that would "sustain for days" and in the late '50s, the historic Gibson and Epiphone factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan produced the "sunburst" Les Paul Standard and its pickup, the "PAF" humbucker.

Players like Joe Bonamassa, Slash, Ace Frehley, Zakk Wylde, Jimmy Page, Alex Lifeson and countless others get their signature sound from a "sunburst" Les Paul and now Epiphone gives you a chance to experience that one-of-a-kind tone at an affordable price with the Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO. The Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO features ProBucker "PAF"-style pickups with coil-tapping, gorgeous colors and a beautiful AAA flame maple veneer top for a vintage look with all the read more modern appointments that players expect from Epiphone.

"Stunning Les Paul"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
It's reaching a point that Epiphone is surprising me more and more There are more Good Quality instruments than shoddy built ones these days and even the lower end Epi's are showing Non-Stop likeability. Keep It Up Epiphone!!

Sound
Great!! Real improvement in Pickups

Features
Genuine Grover Tuners Includes a tag of Quality Assurance stating If they ever fail they will be repaired or replaced. Improved neck- Build is tight. Much better than I remember, no sloppy binding work noticed Great Vintage sounding pickups. Just what I wanted

Ease of Use
Your hands will never tire of this Fine Instrument.

Quality
Pristine Quality. If they are shooting for Fuji Japan Quality someone has been receiving good instruction on improvements across the line and it is stacking up. Hard to find a flaw

Value
Compared to my former 2008 LP Std. PlusTop Pro it is a step up in Quality. From headstock to endpin this guitar has had a makeover. Real Grover Tuners- a Noticeable difference from 2008. Well built neck delivers wonderful performance. Pickups are the sound wanted and don't need replacing She's Heavy - Not relieved by Ultra Modern Tech, "Can Ya Feel Me" she beckons

Manufacturer Support
I've dealt with Gibson Authorized Repair Centers and if you can find one that actually Likes dealing with Gibson and read more doesn't try to sell you the place you Could perhaps get warranty service. It's more about selling you upgrades

The Wow Factor
Get it out of that castrated jumpsuit they tie it all up in and Look Out!! It's taking over the room with Beauty and Thick, Enormous Tone
