With the Les Paul Standard Plustop Pro, you can play nuanced rhythm parts with a chiming single-coil setting on the neck pickup and then launch into a face-melting humbucking lead. We're talking serious tonal versatility. No matter your musical genre, you'll love the Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop Pro.

Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop Pro Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • A universe of tone from tapped ProBuckers
  • The Les Paul backstory
  • With a Les Paul, you're in good company
A universe of tone from tapped ProBuckers

The ProBuckers on the Les Paul Standard Plustop Pro feature Alnico II magnets - the same as sought-after vintage PAF humbuckers - for rich, warm tone with crystalline highs and a tight bottom. With a ProBucker-2 in the neck position and a (slightly overwound) ProBucker-3 in the bridge position, crank your gain and you can do some serious damage. We're talking legendary Les Paul fat, snarling tone served up with days of sustain. Excited? There's more. You also get coil tapping, controlled by push-pull volume pots, giving you an infinite variety of sounds from single-coil spank to full humbucker shred. This Paul is a tone machine.

The Les Paul backstory

The Les Paul backstory actually started with an instrument dubbed The Log. During the early 1940s, in a quest for an electric guitar that would sustain for days, Les Paul - the legendary guitarist and inventor - fashioned what may well have been the first solidbody guitar from a length of common 4" x 4" lumber. For appearances (and possibly playing comfort), Les sawed an Epiphone hollowbody in half and attached the two wings to either side of The Log. Les continued to develop the idea through a series of prototypes, ultimately resulting in the classic solidbody guitar we know and love.

With a Les Paul, you're in good company

From rock to fusion (and beyond), the Les Paul's surly snarl has virtually defined attitude-laden overdrive guitar sound. Legendary guitarists such as Jimmy Page, Al Di Meola, Alex Lifeson, Slash, and countless others have forged their signature sounds with a Les Paul. Epiphone now gives you the opportunity to experience that one-of-a-kind tone and look at an amazingly affordable price with the Les Paul Standard Plustop Pro. What's more, the Plustop Pro comes with Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Warranty and is backed by Gibson's 24/7/365 Customer Service, so you know you're making a solid investment.

outstanding

Such a dream, when i was young and in my high school days, I played in several bands. Back then most of us had very little money. So we played with what we could find. Mine was an old Kay hollow body. Wasn't bad but not in the same ball park as the Epiphone Les Paul, I just bought from Sweetwater. what a great bunch of guys! I am really enjoying my mew guitar. If you are even thinking about trying one of these baby's don't put it off. You won't be disappointed! Happy picking!

Grandson loves his Epiphone Les Paul

My grandson had saved up some cash to get a new guitar this fall, and I told him about the great price on the Epiphone Les Paul Plustop Pro guitar. He checked out the demo video and was blown away by how great it sounded. I ordered a Vintage Sunburst on-line for him and it arrived in three days...wow! Great follow thru by Jason T. !! My grandson came over the afternoon it arrived, and brought his amp with him and he stayed for about six hours playing the new Les Paul. He had a grin so wide u cud drive a truck thru it ...Lol! I cant play a guitar but it sounded awesome !!

Excellent!

I got the guitar a couple of weeks ago and have been playing it pretty much nonstop. I love the feel of the neck. Pick ups have a great sound. Haven't noticed any fret buzz or issues. Since I live in an apartment I haven't had the opportunity to hear what it sounds like through an overdriven amp but one day I will teach my neighbor's dog what good music is all about!

STOKED!!!!!

Seriously, this thing is just beautiful!! Everything about it is real quality. The Plustop is just gorgeous. Mine was bookmatched perfectly. I was stunned at the fiery look and sheer weight of the guitar. Especially since I had a Gibson Les Paul Standard. In all honesty I like this guitar better. It has a really good neck and plays like butter. Body wise, there are no huge differences other than the colors. The shades are ever so slightly more garish than a Gibby. More than likely, few would even notice. The tone is warm and smooth, with tons of sustain. Really, it's that good! I do not know if these are limited, some sites say they are. In any case, you can't go wrong, it's a must have. Get one before they are gone. Nothing compares at this price. I would also like to say that the Sweetwater team is the absolute best! They went the extra mile for me. Also nice was the ability to purchase a setup pre-shipment. I am so, so happy with them and with this purchase. This is a truly amazing guitar and it's a joy to play. I havent been able to stop. How fun!!

Plustop PRO VS

Ive had this guitar over 2 years now and I just cant find anything to say negatively about it. The guitar looks amazing and my flame maple top looks outstanding! It sounds better now than before, now that the wood has had time to breathe. Sustain for days! The pickups are better than expected but I will change them eventually for some Gibson PAFs, preference. I changed the nut, bridge, jack and pots and now the thing is better than ever!! For 400 bucks its the best guitar I have ever seen/heard around. I highly recomend getting one of these if you ever get the chance, china has finally built a great guitar!
