The Epiphone Les Paul series is based on the famous Gibson collection by the same name, although the Epiphone series is designed to be more affordable. The guitars are solid body with a set neck joint, scale length of 24.75” and a mahogany neck. Epiphone Les Paul electric guitars also come with either two or three Alnico Classic Humbucker pickups. In this Epiphone Les Paul review we’ll talk about some of the most popular models available.
Epiphone Les Paul Ultra
The Epiphone Les Paul Ultra, according to the company, improves on “perfection” with its chambered Mahogany body and light weight. The Mahogany body is said to provide a more acoustic sound to the guitar. Like other Epiphone Les Paul guitars, the Ultra comes with two Alnico pickups. It is also built with gold pickups and a set maple neck. A Epiphone Les Paul Ultra II model is also available, with a Nano Mag pickup embedded into the fingerboard to enable an even more acoustic tone.
Epiphone Les Paul Standard
The Epiphone Les Paul Standard is based on the famous Gibson model of the same name. It is built using Chrome hardware, a 1.68” nut width, Rosewood-Trapezoid FB Inlay and a mahogany body. It also comes with two Alnico V humbuckers and a tune-o-matic bridge. Look out for our Epiphone Les Paul standard review in the near future, as it’s a popular model and one we’d definitely want to take a closer look at.
Epiphone Les Paul Studio
The Epiphone Les Paul Studio, as the name suggests, is built to be simple and perfect for the studio musician. It comes with a Mahogany body, open coil humbuckers (for a reduction in noise) and a choice between blue, Ebony, Worn Brown or Worn Cherry finish.
There are a variety of other Epiphone Les Paul electric guitars available at the moment. The Prophecy Les Paul EX, Special II GT and Standard Plus Top are some examples. If you’re looking to buy Epiphone Les Paul guitars it’s always a good idea to try out a model before you choose.
