The Epiphone Les Paul Standard has a solid Mahogany body and Maple top for the same classic tone that helped to make the Les Paul the world's most popular solid body electric guitar. All Epiphone Les Pauls (unlike cheap imitations), feature a 14 degree angled headstock that provides more pressure at the nut for longer sustain and better intonation without the hang-ups caused by 'string-tree' gadgets. The Mahogany neck has an easy-to-play 60s era SlimTaper™-D profile with a 24.75 inch scale length, 22 medium jumbo frets, a Pau Ferro fingerboard with Trapezoid inlays, and a 12 inch fingerboard radius. The body and fingerboard have cream binding and the Epiphone 'clipped ear' headstock has the Les Paul signature in gold silkprint along with the Epiphone logo in pearloid. The Epiphone Les Paul Standard is available in Ebony, Faded Cherry Sunburst, Metallic Gold, and Pelham Blue colour finishes.
Epiphone Designed Alnico Classic™ Humbuckers
The Epiphone Les Paul Standard is powered by two Alnico Classic™ humbuckers with Alnico-V magnets, which provide a slightly higher output than vintage pickups and also have enhanced mids and highs. Each pickup has a Volume and Tone control with vintage-styled Amber 'Top Hats' knobs plus Epiphone's all-metal 3-way pickup selector switch.
Buck the Hum!
Epiphone Alnico Classics utilise a double vacuum waxing process that ensures you quiet operation free from microphonic hum. The pickup is first placed in a specialised wax vacuuming system before the cover is placed on the unit to ensure that the wax fully penetrates to the very centre of the pickup and solidifies all parts. After the cover is placed on, the pickup is given a second vacuum wax bath until the unit is completely saturated. Epiphone uses only the highest quality parts for our pickups including ABS plastic bobbins, 1010 Cold Rolled Steel pole shoes and pole screws, Alnico magnets and the finest magnet wire available.
LockTone™ Bridge and Stopbar Tailpiece
All Epiphone Les Paul Standards feature the nickel LockTone™ Bridge and Stopbar Tailpiece combo that now has an updated patent pending design that auto-locks the bridge and tailpiece in place with no tools needed. The Les Paul Standard also comes with Epiphone's proprietary ¼ inch non-rotating output jack with cream jack plate with an improved contact shape and heavy-duty spring steel. Tuning is fast and accurate with Grover® machine heads with an 18:1 tuning ratio.
