Epiphone presents the new Les Paul Studio LT, an incredible introduction to the world's greatest electric guitar that is affordable for everyone. The Les Paul Studio LT has all the classic Les Paul features including a carved Mahogany top, powerful Zebra-Coil Ceramic humbuckers, and a Mahogany neck with an easy-to-play tapered neck joint. Available in Ebony, Heritage Cherry Sunburst, Vintage Sunburst, and Walnut colour finishes.

Zebra Coil Humbuckers
The Les Paul Studio LT's classic Les Paul power comes from two Zebra Coil Ceramic Humbuckers. Owners of vintage Les Pauls often remove their pickup covers for a better bass response and magnetic pull, revealing the black & white (zebra) bobbins underneath. Ceramic pickups have a higher output than vintage Alnico magnet pickups and are designed to provide a tight low-end response with both a smooth mid-range and a slightly more pronounced top end tone. Ceramic magnets have been a favourite of metal and hard rock guitarists for decades. The Les Paul Studio LT has a 650R in the rhythm position and a 700T in the lead position. Controls include volume and tone for each pickup and an all-metal 3-way pickup selector.

This is my first guitar. To my untrained ear, it sounds great, is easy to play and has all the features I need to grow as an amateur musician. I have no real interest in performing, or putting my guitar on display. All I really want to do is play my favourite riffs from my favourite songs. When I was shopping for my first guitar, I wanted something that I could adjust over time as my ear became better trained. If I compare the features of this guitar with more expensive Epiphones or Gibsons, there aren't really any major compromises, in terms of features and adjustability. Higher end models have various upgrades, but they don't significantly impact my ability to learn: - better pickups (but I couldn't hear the difference) - coil splitting (sounds cool, but the original Les Pauls didn't have this feature, and they made much better music than I'm capable of producing) - Glued-in neck (As much as I appreciate the craftsmanship this requires, I can't hear or feel any real difference) - Upgraded tops, banding and other visual/artistic accents (Some are truly drool-worthy, but I don't really need any of this to learn how to play the guitar. Also, my "walnut" version has a very nice high-gloss finish over shimmering mahogany) - Upgraded tuners (My amp's built-in tuner tells me that my strings go a little flat between practice sessions, but the act of tuning is a useful skill to develop, and I don't usually notice minor tuning issues. However, this is one area where I could see upgrading in the future as my hearing becomes more refined and/or I get sick of retuning my guitar). - Improved quality control (I'm an avid wood worker, who's done some research into guitar building. So, I picked-up on a few very minor fit and finish issues - a quarter-inch scratch in the wood under the smooth lacquer finish that's only visible if you look for it, and the neck pick-up isn't quite perpendicular to the neck. Realistically, these aren't an issue for me because I'm more interested in learning to play this thing vs. displaying it.) Overall, this guitar has all the features I care about at a very reasonable price, and the areas where Epiphone cut costs don't noticeably impact playability or sound quality (at least for me). As a result, it represents a respectable entry point into the world of electric guitars. All-in my guitar, amp and cable cost a little over $500 with tax, which is very reasonable for an entry-level kit that gives me room to grow, and I can be proud to own.

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty.

Warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?

Performance Guarantee - normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage.

Product Replacement - if your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.

No Lemon Policy - your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.

Convenient - easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.

Guitar Setup - Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.

Loaners Available - a loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.

Power Surge Protection - your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.

Accessory Coverage - any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.

Commercial Use Coverage - music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty.Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Accidental or cosmetic damage is not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

-----

Purchasing additional years of coverage

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

NEW products: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.

USED products: 4% of selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.

GUITARS: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.

BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 up to $2,000 selling price. BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the selling price after $2,000. WOODWINDS: 4% of the selling price after $2,000.

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.
