A Les Paul Electric Guitar Gone Goth
The Les Paul body shape is as famous as its name, and with the Epiphone Goth Les Paul electric guitar, you'll shoulder a classic-looking axe in intriguing Gothic fashion. A mahogany body keeps those tones nice and dark, and a pair of Alnico V humbuckers eagerly await to articulate your fingers' fury. The mahogany neck on this guitar features 22 medium jumbo frets over a smooth ebony fingerboard, and dual tone and volume controls give you independent control of each pickup. There's even a signal kill switch on one of your tone controls to create a cool stuttering effect.
Les Paul Gone Goth
Epiphone has been manufacturing instruments since 1873, playing an active role in the cultural impact guitars and other stringed instruments have had over the century. Epiphone has taken the popularity of Gibson's Gothic series of Les Paul guitars, and added their own dark spin to the table. The result is an axe perfect for rock that isn't afraid to get a bit gloomy or sinister.
Mahogany Likes it Dark
You'll feel the weight of this guitar's mahogany body once you shoulder it for the first time. Mahogany is a heavy tonewood that really pushes those low and middle frequencies. Mahogany's emphasis on depth makes it a great instrument for a darker shade of rock, and when you really push the gain, you'll get loads of sustain perfect for generating some monstrous feedback.
Comfy Mahogany Neck in C Shape
The mahogany neck on your Epiphone Goth Les Paul features 22 medium jumbo frets fitted over a smooth ebony fingerboard. The C shape makes for a comfy fit as your hand makes its way across each string and fret. A stark "XII" inlay marks your 12th fret in an ominous yet intriguing style.
Two '57 Classic Alnico V Humbuckers
Packed inside this guitar's mahogany body are a pair of Alnico V humbuckers. Both of these pickups feature that awesome late-'50s tone perfect for rhythm or lead. Alnico V magnets generate a somewhat hotter sound than Alnico II magnets, with slightly scooped mids and just enough bite for when you want to it to go to 11.
