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 solid body guitar, nicknamed the Log, would go on to inspire the Les Paul Standard, what many consider the greatest electric guitar ever made.

The Les Paul Standard 50s models are part of Epiphone's new Inspired by Gibson Collection and recreate the sound of 1950s era Les Pauls. Featuring a classic Mahogany body with a Maple cap and Mahogany neck with long neck tenon. Powered by ProBucker[trade] humbuckers with 50s style wiring and CTS electronics.

Available in Metallic Gold, Vintage Sunburst, and Heritage Cherry Sunburst.

An amazingly high quality guitar that will not disappoint even the most hardent Gibson purist. Available at a price that makes this gem a must for anyone who has dreamed of owning a top end Gibson Les Paul Standard or a Traditional model, but just doesn't have the readies. Built to the highest levels, and using the best of hardware, the end result will surely satisfy even the most picky of those who get a rash if it isn't a 'Gibby'. Of course there have been a few changes in the usual construction methods of a one or two piece body Gibson LP Standard, but nothing that will remotely hamper the sound quality or tone of the Epi. Just mainly invisible stuff that helps us to afford this gorgeous guitar. Even the renowned long neck tenon that Gibson owners tend to let us believe is 'unmatchable' has been matched. A beautiful maple flamed cap hides the mahogany inner body, as does the mahogany backing which provides us with a very professional finish. The pickups, in this case a pair of 'Probuckers', are sublime, and are a excellent match for the rest of the top line electronics which take this guitar into heady territory. My own purchase was/is the vintage cherry red model which is nicely finished to go with the flamed top. I like it very much. I like all of it; both looks, feel and sound. I own a number of top end CS LP's and this Epiphone can hold it's own with any of them. A brilliant introduction from the newly 'inspired' Epiphone Company. Any faults? Well yes; they don't come with a case, hard or soft. Just a free polythene bag. No faults with the parts that really matter however, thank goodness!

Well first off I normally do not write reviews but with the 2020 50s Epiphone Les Paul I feel I need to share. This thing is a beast through my EVH 5150, thick, Rich and very articulate tone with a nice deep thump. I'm impressed with the probuckers. Normally I would right away swap out for the classic 57s but these seem to have everything I want in a pickup. I have owned and played alot of guitars over the last 40 years of playing, from $100 to $3000 plus guitars and this one is every bit in the top of the heap. I'm not normally a heritage cherry guy but this one has a nice burst into a natural wood color not some yellow dyed pissy color, stands out nice with a beautiful flame to it. Kudos to Trevor at Long and Mcquade for an excellent setup, intonation and action is spot on. Sales and Service was top notch. This is one of the best Les Paul's I have ever played at any price point, love the chunky neck. Well that is my two cents. Definately worth checking out, just be prepared to come home with one.

I normally don't Write reviews but I feel that people need to know about this guitar. I have played alot of guitars through my 40 years of playing and Epiphone got this one right, easily beating out even the most expensive Gibsons. Played over 5 hours last night and did not want to stop. I'm normally not a Heritage Cherry guy but the way the red fades into the natural wood color is perfect with a beautifully flamed veneer. Sounds absolutely amazing through my EVH 5150. Kudos to Trevor at Long and Mcquade for the set up, the intonation and action are spot on. Tuning stability was never an issue. If you are thinking of getting a top quality Les Paul at any price point this is the one and at this price point you will have enough left over to get a couple peddles as well. Well that is my two cents. Worth buying over and over again.
