The Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO electric guitar looks amazing -- while delivering the classic and distinctive Les Paul sound. It glistens beautifully under the light with its genuine flame top, and the shiny nickel hardware is gorgeous too. In the pickup slots, it's got two Epiphone Alnico Classic PRO humbucking pickups that deliver warm tones through a clean channel, and rich, crunchy distortion when you want to break that tone up. Epiphone makes great Les Paul guitars, and with the Standard Plustop PRO, they've delivered another great instrument with power and beauty that is way more than skin deep.

Solid Construction Means Solid Tone
The Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO combines a solid mahogany back with a hard maple top to create an instrument of great warmth and resonance. The hand-set neck is true to the deep-set design that made the Les Paul an industry-defining instrument in the first place. The maximized contact between the neck and body assures a great sustain on every note. The top itself will stun everyone in the room with its bright and evocative sunburst pattern, available in a variety of finishes.
A Fast and Friendly Neck Shape
The Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO guitar features the SlimTaper neck with the shallow D shape that emerged in the 1960s, offering players a slimmer, faster design than the 50s-era instruments. With a 12-inch radius fingerboard and 1.68-inch width at the nut, the neck on the Standard Plustop Pro is designed to feel solid yet playable in your hands.
The Highest Quality Electronics Onboard
The Epiphone ProBucker humbuckers onboard promise that this axe serves up an immediately recognizable Les Paul tone the first time you plug in. The tone is said by many to deliver the best sound of any Epiphone pickup yet! It's cool and clear, and immediately warms up when you're running into a fuzz box or a raging tube amp. Another super-cool feature: the two push/pull tone knobs allow for series/parallel pickup switching in both pickups. Essentially, this allows you to get a single-coil-type sound from your Les Paul's humbuckers!
Beautiful Hardware Accents
The Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO comes complete with shiny nickel Locktone Tune-o-matic bridge, stopbar, and tuners to ensure great tuning stability. The ivory-colored frames around the pickups and the pearloid trapezoid inlays in the 22 fret neck stay true to a classic style.
