Out of all of Les Paul’s many achievements; inventor, guitarist, and hit recording artist, Les is most beloved among musicians for inspiring the Les Paul Standard, the most sought-after electric guitar in the world. And now, the new Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO gives the legend a fresh start with ProBucker-2™ and ProBucker-3™ humbucker pickups with coil-splitting a AAA flame Maple Veneer top, and exclusive new color finishes including Bourbon Burst, Dirty Lemon, and Translucent Black.
Epiphone’s history with legendary guitarist and innovator Les Paul dates back to the early 1940s when Les, working nights at the Epiphone factory on 14th Street in New York City, created one of the first solid body electric guitars, better known as “The Log.” Over the next 15 years, Les continued to develop his dream guitar that could “sustain for days.” And in the late ’50s, the historic Gibson and Epiphone factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan produced the “sunburst” Les Paul Standard and its new pickup, the “PAF” humbucker.
Players like Joe Bonamassa, Slash, Ace Frehley, Zakk Wylde, Jimmy Page, Alex Lifeson and countless others get their signature sound from vintage and hard to find Les Paul Standards with hand wound humbuckers. But now, Epiphone gives you a chance to experience that one-of-a-kind tone at an affordable price with the Ltd. Ed. Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO with critically acclaimed ProBucker™ “PAF”-style pickups with coil-splitting, new exclusive colors, and a beautiful AAA flame Maple Veneer top for a vintage look along with all the modern features that players expect from Epiphone.
