Epiphone Les Paul Express Electric Guitar, Ebony
The Les Paul Express is the little Les Paul that roared. The Express captures the look, sound, and feel of a full size Les Paul but in a smaller package that's perfect for younger players and for travel.
- Travel sized Les Paul
- Shorter 22 inch scale
- Ideal for beginners
- Colour: Ebony (EB)
Great Design Features!
While the new LP-Express is still a true Les Paul at heart, Epiphone incorporated some unique design features to ensure that the guitar performs well for beginners as well as professionals looking for a travel guitar. While the body is made from Mahogany like most classic Les Pauls, the neck on the Express is hard Maple as opposed to a traditional Mahogany neck. This gives the guitar a little more high-end 'bite' or brighter tone which effectively offsets the slightly looser string tension due to the shorter scale length. Additionally, the fully-adjustable Epiphone FB-601 'fixed' bridge makes string changes a breeze. Finally, the neck is bolted in place securely using four recessed bolts set into a tapered heel making upper fret access easy and comfortable.

Classic Les Paul Sound
The Les Paul Express features an Epiphone 650R humbucker in the neck position and an Epiphone 700T in the bridge position. Both pickups share the same qualities as Seth Lover's original PAF humbuckers of the late '50s and feature Alnico pickups that give you an infinite variety of tone colours and sounds.
With the slightly looser string tension, its even more important to have great machine heads. Epiphone designed the new Express with premium, 14:1 ratio die-cast machine heads to give you excellent tuning accuracy and stability.

I was sceptical of the quality of this little guitar due to the remarkably low price. However as soon as I plugged it in to an amp and let rip, I realised that this was priced way below it's true worth. Yes it's got a small body (perfect for my partner), and it's got low end pickups, but for less than £90...

If you are looking for a starter guitar for a child or a small adult then definitely consider this one, at least give it a play - it will surprise you!
