Epiphone's history with legendary guitarist and innovator Les Paul dates back to the early 1940s when Les, working late at night at the Epiphone factory on 14th St. in New York City, created what might have been the world's first solidbody electric guitar, better known as "The Log." Over the years, Les continued to work closely with Epiphone luthiers reviewing new product ideas and offering suggestions. Epiphone always made a good guitar, Les liked to say.

Perhaps Les greatest achievement, the Les Paul Standard, has been the most sought-after electric guitar in the world for over 50 years. Now, Epiphone's Les Paul Standard Plus Top model offers the legendary Les Paul Standard sound with a stunning Flame maple top.

Players like Jimmy Page, Slash, Ace Frehley, Mark Knopfler, Zakk Wylde, Alex Lifeson and countless others have come to rely on the unique look, feel and tone of the Les Paul Standard. And now, you too can experience a real Les Paul Standard Plus Top at a price that won't break the bank!

Body
The Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Top features a Solid mahogany body and Flame maple Top that deliver the classic tone and sustain that can only come from a "real" Les Paul. Like all Epiphone Les Pauls--and unlike cheap knock-offs, the Epiphone Les Paul Standard features a 14 degree headstock that gives you more pressure at the nut for more sustain with less tuning hang-ups caused by "string-tree" gadgets. A rosewood fingerboard with trapezoid inlays complete the classic Les Paul Standard Plus Top look and feel and the hand set-neck delivers outstanding string-to-body resonance. Medium-jumbo frets add to the smooth and sustained tone.

Electronics
A pair of Alnico Classic humbucker pickups deliver a vintage vibe with rich warm tone that give you that famous Les Paul sound. When winding the humbuckers, Epiphone utilizes a double vacuum waxing process that ensures quiet operation, free from microphonic hum. The pickup is first placed in the specialized wax vacuuming system before the cover is placed on the unit to ensure that the wax fully penetrates to the very center of the pickup and solidifies all parts. After the cover is placed back on, it is again given a second vacuum wax bath until the unit is completely saturated with wax. Epiphone uses only the highest quality parts for their pickups like ABS plastic bobbins, 1010 Cold Rolled Steel pole shoes and pole screws, Alnico magnets and the finest magnet wire available.

Hardware
The Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Top features a locking Tune-o-matic/StopBar fully adjustable bridge which has been a classic for over 50 years. And now, Epiphones updated, patent- pending design auto locks the bridge and tailpiece in place with no tools needed! The Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Top uses 1" diameter potentiometers for better "throw", longer life, and reliable service. The all-metal toggle switches use rugged spring-steel contacts to ensure years of reliable service and performance. Epiphones proprietary output jack features an improved contact shape and heavy-duty spring steel to increase reliability. The Les Paul Standard Plus Top also includes Grover machine heads on its tuners for stability and long life.

Love this thing. got mine last week. Price needs to come down a bit though. $800 brand new? For an extra couple hundred you can get full fledged Gibson. Not Sure What GIbson/Epiphone are thinking here with that price. Should be closer to $500. Look what you can get from Fender for the same price. Still love this thing. Closest Ill ever get to that vintage LP look that we all strive for.

A bit of tweaking to set the action but overall a nice guitar to play Pickups were reversed (up position was bridge pup) so had to unplug and switch around Great sounding guitar in "Gibson" mode and also interesting sound with coil tap.
