Epiphone’s new Inspired by Gibson Collection proudly presents the Epiphone Les Paul Standard '50s in Metallic Gold! This guitar lovingly recreates the feel and tone of 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, what many consider the greatest electric guitar ever made. The guitar is crafted with a Mahogany body, Maple cap (AAA veneer on figured tops), bound 50s shaped Mahogany neck with long neck tenon, Indian Laurel fingerboard with classic trapezoid inlay, Epiphone's new Vintage-Deluxe tuners, a pair of critically acclaimed Epiphone ProBucker™ humbuckers, and gold Top Hat knobs with dial pointers. This Epiphone Inspired by Gibson Original model also has the Kalamazoo headstock, rolled neck for a comfortable feel, GraphTech® NuBone™ nut, era-appropriate wiring, and CTS pots. Optional hardshell or EpiLite Case is available.
