Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus-Top PRO Electric Guitar - Wine Red
The Epiphone Les Paul Standard has been the starting point of an impossibly large amount of guitarists world wide. Providing outstanding and detailed quality in every aspect, Epiphone's guitars are a sure fire winner for any first time player... Here we present the Plus-Top edition of the standard model, which is everything you love about the classic Standard model, but with a rather special finish.
Instantly recognizable from a quick glance, the Les Paul shape has been the go-to guitar for some of the most famous guitarists ever to have graced the stage. Of course it provides a very stylish appearance for a guitar but the shape is also responsible for the fantastic tone associated with the instrument.
Mahogany is the wood of choice for the base of the body combined with an AAA Flamed maple top, which with the single Les Paul cutaway shape allows for one of the most universally usable guitar sounds of all time. Producing plenty of middle-low end with boosted high frequencies, the frequency range offered from the Epiphone Les Paul makes it perfect for anything from pop to hard rock.
Complimented with a ProBucker-2 pick-up in the neck and a ProBucker-3 pick-up in the bridge, to give the sought-after classic Les Paul growl that makes it so iconic. These pick-ups can be individually controlled using the tone/volume knobs in order to really hone your tone, and with a 3-way selector switch you can gracefully switch setting to best suit lead or rhythmn styles.
Also showing off the fine addition of coil-tapping functionality, allowing you to seamlessly change your pick-up functionality from humbucking (for full bodied tone) to a much less overpowering single-coil setting.
