Embark on a journey through rock history with the Epiphone Kirk Hammett "Greeny" 1959 Les Paul Standard. This guitar pays homage to the illustrious "Greeny," a legendary instrument with a storied past.

Premium Construction and Vintage Charm

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the Epiphone "Greeny" Les Paul Standard features premium components that capture the essence of the original. The mahogany body with a maple top, adorned with AAA flame maple veneer, delivers a classic Les Paul tone with rich resonance and sustain. The one-piece mahogany neck boasts a custom Greeny profile for enhanced playability, while the Indian laurel fingerboard with mother-of-pearl trapezoid inlays provides a smooth and comfortable playing experience. Grover Rotomatic tuners with kidney buttons adorn the Gibson-style "open book" headstock, adding a touch of vintage elegance.

Sonic Versatility and Authentic Tone

Equipped with Gibson USA Greenybucker pickups, the Epiphone "Greeny" Les Paul Standard offers a versatile range of tones. The neck pickup features reversed magnetic polarity and is reverse-mounted, replicating the unique sound of the original "Greeny."
