50 Years of Tone, in a New Epi Les Paul!
The Epiphone 50th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul Standard reminds us where it all began. Not only are Les Pauls from 1960 some of the most sought-after, collectible guitars in the world, you'll hear them in some of the most popular music of the last century. While we've seen a whole slew of new guitar makes and models in that time, the Les Paul continues to stand the test of time and remains one of the most popular guitars for a wide range of musical styles. Why? Incredible craftsmanship and reliability. Rich, complex tones that beg you to keep playing. Huge sustain without sacrificing tonal versatility. The list goes on.
To commemorate 50 years of Les Pauls, Ephiphone has created the 50th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul Standard - and we believe Les would be proud. Honoring tradition begins with a historically accurate solid mahogany body - no chambered weight relief here, just solid tonewood topped with a gorgeous Grade-AAA flame maple veneer for a well-aged look. The neck is historically accurate and may make you think you're playing a 1960 original, especially once you plug in and experience these pickups. Epiphone has chosen a Burstbucker-1 humbucker for the neck pickup position that is "underwound" specifically for the 50th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul Standard. This amazing pickup brings to mind the vintage tonality of PAF humbuckers used in the '50s and '60s.
High-quality components complement the 50th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul Standard's vintage feel. From the Locktone tune-o-matic stopbar bridge to the Mallory-150 tone capacitors, the components make this axe play as good as it sounds and looks. Whether you're nostalgic for the guitar sound you grew up with, or just looking for a great new guitar that will give you a lifetime of playing enjoyment, the Epiphone 50th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul Standard is sure to please.Epiphone 50th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul Standard Features:
