Epiphone Les Paul Standard '50s - Vintage Sunburst


Epiphone '50s Les Paul Standard: A Classic, Reborn

Epiphone's new Inspired by Gibson Collection proudly presents the Les Paul Standard '50s! This guitar lovingly recreates the feel and tone of the 1950s era Les Pauls. Epiphone's long friendship with Mr. Les Paul began in 1940 when Les built one of the world's first solid-body electric guitars while working nights at the original Epiphone factory in Manhattan. Les' first solid-body guitar, nicknamed the Log, would go on to inspire the Les Paul Standard, which many consider the greatest electric guitar ever made.

Vintage Design and Modern Playability

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard '50s in Vintage Sunburst is crafted with a mahogany body and a carved hard maple cap with AAA flame maple veneer. The bound '50s shaped mahogany neck with long neck tenon ensures stability and a comfortable playing experience. The Indian laurel fingerboard with classic trapezoid inlays adds to the guitar's vintage aesthetic. The Vintage Deluxe tuners, ProBucker humbuckers, and gold Top Hat knobs with dial pointers make this guitar a true representation of the classic '50s Les Paul.

Superior Craftsmanship and Materials

The body of the Les Paul Standard '50s is made from mahogany, providing a warm and resonant tone. The carved hard maple cap with AAA flame maple veneer adds brightness and clarity to the sound, while the cream binding enhances its classic look. The gloss finish not only adds to the guitar's beauty but also protects the wood and improves its durability.

Comfortable and Playable Neck

The mahogany neck with a '50s Rounded Medium C profile fits comfortably in your hand, making it easy to play for extended periods. The Indian laurel fingerboard with a 12" radius and 22 medium jumbo frets ensures smooth playability across the entire fretboard. The Graph Tech NuBone nut, with a width of 1.69", ensures precise string spacing and enhances the guitar's overall tonal quality.

High-Quality Hardware for Reliable Performance

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard '50s is equipped with premium hardware to ensure reliable performance and durability. The Epiphone LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and stop bar tailpiece provide stable tuning and sustain. The Epiphone Vintage Deluxe 18:1 ratio machine heads offer precise tuning adjustments, while the cream PVC pickguard and nickel pickup covers add to the guitar's vintage charm.

Versatile Electronics for Dynamic Tones

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard '50s is fitted with ProBucker 1 and ProBucker 2 humbucking pickups, delivering a wide range of tones from warm and smooth to bright and articulate. The guitar features individual volume and tone controls for each pickup, along with a 3-way Epiphone toggle switch for easy pickup selection. The CTS pots and '50s style wiring allow for versatile sound shaping, making this guitar suitable for any musical style.
