OVERVIEW

Combines the best of Les™ original design with new features.

Epiphone' long friendship with Les Paul dates back to 1940 when Les, working after-hours at the Epiphone factory on 14th Street in New York, created what may be the world' first solid body electric guitar. Over the years, Les continued to work closely with Epiphone by reviewing new product ideas and offering suggestions.

The Epiphone Les Paul Traditional PRO combines the best of Les™ original design with new features--including newly tooled pickups--for a Les Paul that' not only an incredible instrument, but is one of the best overall values available for guitarists today. The Les Paul Traditional PRO's combination of progressive electronics and classic styling makes it the very kind of guitar that Les would have made himself. After all, Les was a lifelong Epi fan and always encouraged them to never forget that the œLes Paul guitar was born at Epiphone. His spirit of innovation is put to work here every day.

Case sold separately.

Classic Les Paul Styling¦with a Twist
The Les Paul Traditional Pro has the classic build and profile of all Les Pauls with a solid mahogany body and carved top, a mahogany SlimTaper œD profile neck with a 24.75 scale, a 1.68 nut, and of course, the iconic Les Paul signature on the headstock and truss rod cover. The neck is hand-fitted and glued into the body for excellent neck-to-body contact, acting almost as one continuous piece of wood. A "worn" type finish on the back of the neck and body add to the lived-in feel of the Les Paul Traditional PRO.

Professional Electronics
Setting the Les Paul Traditional PRO apart from all other Les Paul contenders is our 4-wire, nickel/silver base humbuckers with newly tooled, USA-style bobbins. In the neck position is our Alnico Classic Pro humbucker with Alnico-II magnets with open zebra coils for warm, thick vintage tone. The Alnico Classic Pro is paired with an Epiphone ProBucker-3 humbucker at the bridge. This inspired version of Gibson's classic BurstBucker-3 features unevenly wound coils and Alnico-II magnets that replicate that "Patent Applied For" airy tone. You'll love the way they sound! To top it all off, we use '50s style TopHat Volume and Tone Controls which feature push/pull potentiometers allowing you to coil-split each pickup for single-coil sounds. Combined with the 3-way toggle, you get six unique sounds from one great Les Paul guitar.

Loaded with premium add-ons
Other features on the Epiphone Les Paul Traditional PRO included quality Grover machine heads, a traditional cream colored pickguard, LockTone tune-o-matic StopBar bridge and Epiphone's own StrapLocks.

Comments about Epiphone 2014 Les Paul Traditional PRO Electric Guitar:

got mine with a few imperfections on the worn satin side and bridge pick up had some wax over run. right out of the box I had to make adjustments to bridge. it also had a long light scratch on the top. imperfections aside this guitar feels and sounds great...was torn about sending this one back but I just couldn't put it down.

Comments about Epiphone 2014 Les Paul Traditional PRO Electric Guitar:

My first epiphone I was a little hesitant about the purchase after readin some reviews but for the price the quality tone and sound are exelent.I am really pleased with the guitar. The set up and intonation was spot on. The neck was a little thick at first but when you get used to it it rocks. Pick ups sound ok I wish they where a little hotter but that's just my opinion and taste.the guitar stays in tune really well.no defects on the front paint job the finish on the back of the guitar that's another story but not too bad eather.this is my 9th guitar and it compares really good to my high end dean ml. Get the epiphone you won't be disappointed.

    Comments about Epiphone 2014 Les Paul Traditional PRO Electric Guitar:

    This particular model (The Les Paul Traditional Pro) is a wonderful guitar. I own many Epi Les Pauls and these are some of my favorites. The entire back of the guitar and neck is "satin" finished or I think Epiphone calls it "worn". I prefer the Polyurethane backs & necks myself, but these do play and feel outstanding and the neck is fast. The zebra humbuckers add to the mojo of this model and the "Aqua Teal" is gorgeous. Mine didn't have a real heavy flame to it (the bummer of shopping musicians Friend) but it is unique, and because the finish is so nice I am very happy with it. The pickups with coil tapping sound awesome. But, being it an Epi, you can't complaine about the price! Awesome guitar!

    Comments about Epiphone 2014 Les Paul Traditional PRO Electric Guitar:

    Great pickups, and beautifully finished top. The black satin finish on the back and sides feels cheap, but that's the only real disappointment with this guitar. The color is striking and unique, and the tone and playability are surprisingly nice after minimal setup.
    Great value!
