An iconic guitar with an iconic story, the Gibson Les Paul is the legacy of legendary guitarist and guitar innovator Les Paul. What started as a personal mission back in the late '40s has developed in to arguably the most revered electric guitar model of all time.
The Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO is a really affordable way to experience what makes the Les Paul so special. With a solid Mahogany body just like the original Gibson's, the Plustop Pro features an AAA-Grade Flame Maple veneer top in the eye-catching Translucent Blue finish. This time tested tonewood combination offers all the tone and sustain of the Les Paul and looks a million dollars.
Unlike cheaper model Epiphones, the Plustop Pro features 1-ply cream binding for that classic vintage look. The Mahogany neck boasts a 24.75" scale length, a 12" radius and the '60s Slim Taper D neck profile. A Rosewood fingerboard with Perloid trapezoid inlays features 22 medium jumbo frets and feels perfectly balanced and poised, just as a Les Paul should.
The PlusTop Pro is loaded with Pro-Bucker humbuckers for the tone that only a Les Paul can produce. With Alnico II magnets they are inspired by the original PAF pickups that have become so iconic. The bridge Pro-Bucker is slightly overwound to offer a real edge for lead work and the PlusTop Pro now features a coil-tap facility which is controlled via a push/pull volume control. This provides a varied and versatile tonal range and is a really cool feature.
A real powerhouse, the PlusTop Pro is a great value Les Paul that opens up the sound, playability and style of the Les Paul to everybody.
