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.

I've waited my whole life for a lefty Epiphone Les Paul Goldtop, and it doesn't disappoint! The quality is top notch. No issues with any of the factory setup. It's heavier than my LP Custom, and I like that. The neck is thicker too, and that suits this model. I believe the best thing you can do with an LP, is keep it stock. That way it retains that LP sound, but at the same time, the stock hardware has to be good, right? Well the stock hardware on this model are perfect. This one shouldn't be overlooked, it's a steal at this price!

beauty Les Paul Traditional style (50s specs) Epiphone version .. ~ has all the features and parts that are nigh as Good (or better in the case of the Vintage style tuners) than basically all the Gibsons (including 2013 Gibson Les Paul Trads etcetera) have owned and played (live for public shows also) ..
