This Les Paul Will Exceed Your Expectations

The Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus solidbody electric guitar honors the years Les Paul spent with Epiphone in the late '30s and early '40s. The LP Tribute Plus takes the classic design of the Les Paul into the modern era with premium components not normally found on a guitar this affordable. The traditional mahogany body is capped with a carved hard maple top for exceptional note definition and clarity.

Factor in two Gibson USA '57 Classic humbucking pickups, and you have an incredible performer at an amazing price with the Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus solidbody electric guitar.

Exceptional craftsmanship at a great price

Epiphone takes affordable quality to the next level with the Les Paul Tribute Plus. The solid mahogany body is pure Les Paul tradition, but the carved hard maple top is a feature normally found on more expensive models. The combination creates tones with warmth, depth, clarity, and definition. Another fine touch is the hand-fitted neck joint that extends to the neck pickup cavity for maximum transfer of string energy - we're talking sustain for days with a fast and lively response to your playing.

Premium components

As you can already tell from the choice tonewoods used, the Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus packs premium components for a value-packed experience. On top of the quality wood and craftsmanship, the LP Tribute Plus packs two Gibson USA '57 Classic humbuckers - you read that right, Gibson USA pickups on an Epiphone! The '57 Classics are known for their wide tonal range and hot output, letting you go from smooth and clean to growling and mean. Plug into your favorite tube amplifier and get ready to conjure the essential tones for almost any musical style.

Push-pull tone controls

While the Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus packs the looks and feel of a classic Les Paul, the modern electronics give you more tonal options than you'd expect. The '57 Classic humbuckers use 4-conductor pickup wiring, giving you access to series/parallel pickup switching with the push-pull tone pots. This additional tone-shaping capability makes the Les Paul Tribute Plus an incredibly versatile performer.

Worth every penny

For the price, an amazing guitar. Mine came with the frets in beautiful shape and plays great. I wish I had bought two for the price...

Look No Further

BLOWN AWAY IS RIGHT!!! I'm so freakin stoked about this guitar. I didn't expect this quality for the money. I've had it for 2 weeks now and when I'm not playing it, I'm daydreaming about playing it. Best thing I've ever done.
Music background: Used to play, then didn't, now playing again and lovin it!!!

Epiphone has a winnrer

Best guitar I have ever played. Sweetwater did a great job of setting it up, only thing I did was put a new set of D'Addarios on and tweaked itonation. Shipping was real fast and customer service has been excellent. I love the slim taper neck and I can reach the low strings much easier. Love the Grover locking tuners, stays in tune really good. Pickups are out of this world and you can get some varying sounds that are crisp, clean, and bright sounding. Sounds amazing plugged in a Marshall tube amp along with various MXR pedals. Worth every penny, you gt so much for your money with this guitar.

Best deal for a Paul

The Epiphone Les Paul is just fantastic !I put Ernie Ball Cobalt strings (10-52) on it and it sings.The only beef I have with Gibson/Epiphone is them black inking the fretboard.I had to buff and bleach out the fretboard for two days to get it all out.Someone needs to contact Epiphone and tell them to stop this practice.The wood grain under the ink was just beautiful.Applied boiled Linseed oil after to seal the fretboard and it looks just like a custom shop guitar.
Music background: Almost 50 years of playing guitar

Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus

I purchased this guitar due to the basic facts of it's overall setup. It came adjusted perfectly, I mean perfect! So here go's the rest of the story! I then purchased a Gibson Traditional as well ( as the Les Paul fever really set with the Epiphone Les Paul) I wanted a rounded neck as well as the real thing? Bottom line here is the Epi not only holds up but may I say it? Sounds better! I said it............ Thanks to Andrew whom has always been there for me and go's that extra mile as well. This guitar is fantastic!
