A Gorgeous Les Paul Standard for a Song

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop Pro packs a punch. Sporting ProBucker pickups with coil tapping and a stunning AAA flame maple veneer top, this impressive solidbody electric guitar gives you legendary LP tone and playability - as well as jaw-dropping good looks - at an amazing price. 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 what 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 - 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, this Les Paul lets you crank your gain and 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. Take it from the Sweetwater crew - the Les Paul Standard Plustop Pro is a tone machine.

The Les Paul backstory

The Les Paul backstory actually started with an instrument dubbed "The Log." In 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 - so you know you're making a solid investment.

Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop Pro Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Maple and mahogany tonewood combo provides that classic Les Paul tone
  • 1960s SlimTaper "D" set neck provides smooth playability
  • AAA flame maple veneer top adds a touch of class
  • 2 coil tapped ProBucker pickups for stunning tonal dexterity
  • Epiphone Limited Lifetime Warranty
The Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop Pro is a gorgeous Paul at an amazing price!

Beautiful and perfect out of the box! My adviser, Clint was awesome throughout the long process of me deciding what I wanted and I could not be happier with my purchase. It sounds and plays great and looks amazing. If you are concerned about the wine read being too "bright" I can say that it is a darker red than the pictures suggest which is what I was hoping for. I have zero complaints so far.

1 word...AMAZING

My awesome Wine Red Epi Standard PlusTop Pro came today (a day earlier than expected) and it is GORGEOUS. Not a flaw that I can see. Sounds great. Love the coil tapping (still playing with array of tone options). My service advisor, Clint, was so helpful with my purchase and made this an awesome experience. I may go to Sam Ash to try out gear but my future purchases will come from Clint!

Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop Pro

I ordered late Friday evening and received all three packages the next Tuesday. The Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop Pro in Wine Red is a beautiful guitar and plays even better. I'm glad my daughter talked me into spending the few extra bucks and getting guitar I really wanted. I also ordered a demo case and a demo code 50 Marshall Amp. Both demo's are in the same as new condition and I couldn't be more satisfied. Overall I think that I made the best choice by going with Sweetwater. Andrew is a great sales rep. and the shipping is second to none.
Music background: Just an ol' rock-and-roll bar band from the '70's.
