OVERVIEW

A Les Paul Standard with f-holes and flame maple top.

The Les Paul Standard is one of the most famous and sought-after electric guitars in the world. And now, Epiphone has added a twist to this classic rocker by including a gorgeous flame maple top with dual "f" holes, and a partially hollowed-out body that gives the legendary Les Paul a fresh upscale look with a lighter, more resonant body. It's the perfect combination of Les Paul sound and Epiphone style. Plus, the LP Standard Florentine PRO features Epiphone acclaimed ProBucker humbucker pickups, both with coil-tapping for a "standard" in looks and performance.

AAA Flame Maple Top and Classic
The Epiphone Ltd Ed Les Paul Standard Florentine PRO features a mahogany body that is carved out with two traditional f-holes for a new look that combines the Les Paul profile with Epiphone's legendary archtops. The Les Paul Florentine PRO features a beautiful AAA flame maple veneer top that delivers the classic LP tone and sustain but with the hint of a semi-hollowbody guitar like a 335 or Sheraton. The body also features single-ply cream binding on the top for a beautiful vintage look.

Like all Epiphone Les Pauls-and unlike less costly designs-the Epiphone Les Paul Standard Florentine PRO features a 14-degree angled headstock that gives you more pressure at the nut for longer sustain with less tuning hang-ups caused by "string-tree" gadgets. The mahogany neck has a standard 24.75" scale with a 12" radius and features a 1960s SlimTaper "D" profile with a glued-in neck joint for lifelong stability. The "D" profile neck is easy to hold for hours of playing time. The smooth rosewood fingerboard comes with pearloid trapezoid inlays, 22 medium-jumbo frets, a 1.68" nut, and 1-ply cream binding.

Epiphone ProBucker Humbuckers with Coil-Tapping
The Ltd Ed Les Paul Florentine PRO now features ProBucker pickups for that one-of-a kind Les Paul sound. ProBucker pickups feature Alnico II magnets, the same magnets used in sought-after vintage PAF humbuckers. Alnico II magnets provide a rich, warm tone with a sparkling high end and a solid low end. And, like PAF-era humbuckers, Epiphone ProBucker pickups are incredibly responsive with a range of tones.

The Les Paul Standard Florentine PRO features a ProBucker-2 in the neck position and a ProBucker-3 in the bridge position. The ProBucker-3 is slightly overwound to provide balance with the neck pickup and a bit of edge for lead work. ProBuckers emulate the sound of original PAF pickups which were hand-wound with a few extra turns of wire. Both the neck and bridge pickups also feature coil-tapping which is easily activated by a push/pull volume control. Coil tapping allows players an infinite variety of pickups sounds from single-coil bark to full humbucker bite.

Epiphone ProBucker Power
Epiphone pickups are critically acclaimed for their vintage-perfect sound and superior workmanship. When winding its humbuckers, Epiphone utilizes a double vacuum waxing process that ensures quiet operation, free from microphonic hum. The pickup is first placed in the specialized wax vacuuming system before the cover is placed on the unit to ensure that the wax fully penetrates to the very center of the pickup and solidifies all parts. After the cover is placed on, it is again given a second vacuum wax bath until the unit is completely saturated with wax. Epiphone uses only the highest-quality parts for its pickups, such as ABS plastic bobbins, 1010 Cold Rolled Steel pole shoes and pole screws, Alnico magnets and the finest magnet wire available. A guitar with Epiphone ProBucker pickups is a guitar you can truly play for life.

Guaranteed PRO Hardware
Epiphone's Ltd Ed Les Paul Standard Florentine PRO features Epiphone's legendary rock-solid hardware including a LockTone Tune-o-matic fully adjustable bridge and a Stopbar tailpiece. And now, Epiphone's updated design auto locks the bridge and tailpiece in place with no tools needed for improved sustain. The Les Paul Standard Florentine PRO uses 1" diameter potentiometers for better "throw," longer life and reliable service. Epiphone's all-metal toggle switches use rugged spring-steel contacts to ensure years of reliable service and performance. And Epiphone's proprietary output jack features an improved contact shape and a heavy-duty spring steel to increase reliability. Tuning is easy fast, and intuitive with Epiphone new "Deluxe" machine heads with an 18:1 ratio to ensure tuning stability and long life.

Like every Epiphone, the new Ltd Ed Les Paul Standard Florentine PRO features Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Warranty backed by world famous 24/7/365 Gibson Customer Service.

Saw a Gibson Les Paul Semi-Hollow going for a lot more. Loved it, but not spending that much or the reviews. Luckily I noticed the "also consider" banner showing this baby! Following that link, I read 6 or so positive reviews. It's rare not to have at least one negative review. None with this guitar so far - know why? 'Cause it's a sweet find. At first I thought "I don't want a fake/cheap Les Paul". But after I researched it more I took a leap of faith. Wow am I glad I did! There is nothing fake about the Epiphone Florentine Les Paul. Clearly the best guitar I've bought.....at this price. Plays and sounds sweet, it's lightweight, relieves my aching shoulders :-), has great sustain, and the first time right-out-of-box jam with my band had them impressed, beautiful cherry sunburst finish on awesome maple top, volume controls have coil-tapping feature, tone controls are "treble-cut". At this price it's a great deal! Based on the reviews thus far, everyone who buys one LOVES it! I may buy another one in honey burst or transparent black finish. I love this guitar!!

I was impressed when I opened the box. The finish was flawless and the neck was smooth. The frets had no sharp ends and were level. The tuners operated as expected, and the truss rod functioned correctly. But the fly in the ointment was the access hole for the truss rod. It appeared to have been gouged out with a chisel and a hammer! This was not visible until the truss rod cover was removed. I can't believe that an otherwise flawless guitar could have such shoddy workmanship. I'm not just being fussy, this was without a doubt the crudest work that I have ever seen on a guitar at any price range. The edges of the hole were all jagged and out of shape. I don't know how it ever passed quality control, unless the cover was installed prior to inspection. The pickups were very nice, and the overall tone was great. The shape of the neck was somewhat on the slender side for my tastes, but that is a personal thing. The weight was on the light side for a Les Paul, and the fit and finish was well done (except for the truss rod hole). The finish had a sort of plastic look and feel to me, but the guitar played well and felt good in the hands. I ended up returning the guitar for a refund, as I just couldn't come to terms with the crude truss rod work, even though it was hidden by the cover. I have owned a lot of Epiphones, but this one really disappointed me in the quality control department. Perhaps the next one would have been better.

Best Uses

  • The Pleasure Of Playing

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Florentine PRO Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

IMHO there are two major considerations when grading a guitar.(1. Quality
(2. Cost
If I grade a guitar with five stars, (I do this one) it doesn't mean that I think it's the best in the world or even the best I've played. It does mean that at this price, this is way up top.

1. finish. I found no faults at all and it is beautiful.

2. Mechanical: Nothing broken, Nothing Bent, Nothing loose (so far). The frets are a little sharp on the ends but at this price range about as good as it gets. As mentioned by others, the tuning slips just a little, but I personally think this will take care of itself. If it doesn't and I find it to be really an issue with me, the guitar is worth new tuners.

3. Playability: It's like the guy in Indonesia new exactly what I wanted in a guitar. String height is perfect. Intonation is within a couple of hertz on every string and I mean this literally (my ear would never know the difference). For my ears the pickups are adjusted exactly where I want them. The volume of the Lows and Highs are very balanced.

4. Tone: Tone is something I've always struggled with. I'm not a great player and I have hearing difficulty so tone is something I'm working on constantly. I have a 1982 ES 335 that I believe is the best sounding guitar around; it will sound any way your talents will take it. I wanted this to sound like my 335: it doesn't and I don't believe it ever will but the tone that it does have is very pleasing and very versatile for just about any type of music. The coil splits are more fun for me than useful but I think for a professional they would really be useful.

A Diehard Les Paul solid body lover may scoff at this new innovation.,,,,,,but just until they play it.

You may get the idea that I like this Florentine and that would be a fact but keep in mind that all reviews are subjective and each guitar has it's own individual sound just as each player has their own likes and skill level. I'm not a good player and I need an easy playing. This is my guitar and I would buy it again.

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Florentine PRO Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

    The Epiphone Les Paul Florentine is an extremely rare and hard to find version of an extremely rare Gibson. The Pro-Bucker pickups stand up to Gibson USA pickups very well. With a nitrocellulose finish, this is even closer to being a Gibson with a 80% discount. If you like the sound of an ES-335 with the looks and feel of a Les Paul, this is a very rare and very affordable chance to get a guitar most guitarist don't know exist.

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Florentine PRO Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

    Beautifully finished lightweight alternative to the traditional Les Paul. Mine is about 7lbs. Fatter, more resonant tone but you would not mistake it for a 335 as I have seen suggested elsewhere. Maybe if you jumped a string gauge or two. My top is gorgeous 4A tiger maple in Honeyburst. The body is an attractive light brown mahogany. The rosewood fretboard is so dark it could pass for ebony and is a good contrast to the honey finish. As received, the neck pickup was set too low - a two minute fix. No regrets.

      Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Florentine PRO Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

      First of all let me say that the Gibson version of this model is nearly $3000. But the Epiphone gives you the best bang for your buck with this one. The Epiphone Les Paul Florentine came ready to play right out of the box. The probucker pickups and coil tap capability really give you a nice variety of tone. I was worried about feedback at high volume but I never lost control. I would highly recommend this axe is you're looking for a cool semihollow body.

      Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Florentine PRO Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

      For the money, this is one nice guitar. Lightweight, good looks and a great neck are the most outstanding features of this guitar. Add in the burstbuckers and you've got a great practice / gigging guitar. I noticed where people have commented that this guitar doesn't stay in tune. I notice that the strings only had about 1 1/2 winds on each peg. I changed the strings, putting them on properly and problem solved. Does this guitar sound as good as it's gibson counterpart? No! However, the difference is so close that for the huge difference in price, it's good enough. I compared this guitar to a $4k Gibson with a 490R and a 498T pickup. Although there was a difference in the sound, it was so close it was a no-brainer. The major difference in this guitar and the Gibson ES Les Paul is the ES Les Paul has a Mahogany tone block running through the guitar. This Florentine Pro only has solid support blocking for the bridge and tail piece. Th,e space under the pickups is not solid as is on the Gibson ES model. Now here's the Kicker, a Gibson ES Les Paul is $3K, this Florentine Pro is only 1/5th the price. For someone on a budget, like me, this is the wise choice. Try one today!

      Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Florentine PRO Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

      Out of the box this guitar plays great! The look is amazing! The price match awesome. The return service on first damaged guitar, excellent. I was in love with the first one and had no choice to let it go back because of damage. The second one is mind blowing. The Gibson version of this guitar is 3G. Way too much for a guitar for a guy with my budget. For hundreds, this guitar is worth every penny and more. Hit the buy it now button. You will not be disappointed. I've been waiting for this one for almost 20 years. Epiphone is awesome. Their work is almost on par or better with some Gibby stuff....did I just type that??? All my frieds tried this out and agree...it's got its own thing. Lastly, my neck thanks Epiphone. I can now resume playing LPs at gigs without a week of neck pain from carrying a boat anchor.

      Best Uses

        Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Florentine PRO Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

        Got this guitar yesterday. When I opened the box I saw that one of the tuners had stripped out and was barely hanging on. Not being one to send things back I had to repair it. I cut some matches and use wood glue to plug the hole and re-screw the tuner in place. Even though it was solid I noticed that the guitar just didn't hold tune. On that note those vintage tuners IMO are junk. So I got some hipshot locking tuners to replace the vintage ones with. Welllllllll, the holes in the headstock were too small and the locking tuners wouldn't fit. So, I had to ream out the holes to put the new tuners in. Of course once I did that there was no turning back for a refund or return. But I have worked on guitars before so I plodded ahead.
        With the new tuners the guitar sounded and played much better and held tune very well.

        Sound:The neck and middle position pickups sound some what muddy to me but the bridge pickup has some great bite and sound very nice.
        I like the guitar now, after several hours of work and another fifty clams. That's why I can't give it five stars.
        Maybe mine was not the norm but I gotta tell ya, those vintage tuners are just not very solid. If you want better tuners you'd better get yourself a reaming tool, cause that headstock won't fit anything but the old style tuners.

        Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Florentine PRO Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

        I have had an older version of this same guitar for ten years and is my go-to secret weapon. I can't say enough about mine. Like all Epiphones you have to find a good one. By that I mean play several and pick the one that feels the best. There's always a remarkable difference between them - more than any other guitar. I won't list all my other guitars, but a lot of people can't believe this is my favorite model. The only thing that greatly improved mine was switching out the pickups for Duncan 59s. This thing now sounds so hot that you can't put it down. I'm not kidding, this thing is a steal if you get a good one. Your $5000 guitars may come and go - if you are ever lucky enough to have them - but this one stays where you can grab it when that riff comes to you at all hours of the day. You can't go wrong quite simply if you follow my advice; most importantly to swap the first one for a second if it's not right. You'll know when you hit the jackpot like I did. BTW, that swapping them out goes for all Epiphone guitars. If you were to line up ten, one will be much better than the others. I know stuff after many years and lots of guitars. Good luck and practice, then practice some more.

        Been playing 55 plus years. This is hands down the easiest playing , best sounding guitar I have ever owned or played. Flawless beauty, impeccable workmanship. Proud to own and show. This is equal or better than many other guitars I've played including my fat strat and Gibson 335. Try it . You'll like it !

        Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Florentine PRO Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

        I like the size of the Les Paul but the weight can be an issue. With this semi hollow body Les Paul,That issue is gone. The quality and playability of this Epiphone is without question as good as my Gibson midtown custom and better than my Gibson es 335 studio. Sustain is as good as my solid body Les Paul. With the coil tab feature you can get single coil or humbucker thickness almost as good as the 335 in humbucker mode. There were zero flaws on this guitar. Action out of the box was nice and low. All I had to do was change the strings. An equivalent Gibson will set you back 8 times as much. I can't see how it could be any better than this Epiphone.

        Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Florentine PRO Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

        This is a very good looking guitar.
        But looks aren't enough for this reviewer.
        The output signal is weak, especially when you use the coil tapping for single coil operation.
        And the pickups don't really have the "bite" you want or expect from an LP.
        They're OK. But Epiphone makes other models that have the snarl and growl you want. So this is disappointing.
        It's comfortable in your hands, and feels nice to hold. The action and neck feel good. But it's not "light" as others have claimed. It's about the same weight as other Epi semi-hollow models (like the 339), which is less than a Standard LP, but more than a Casino or other hollow bodies.

          A very classy electric guitar

          By 23miles

          from Albany NY

          Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard Florentine PRO Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

          This is a very attractive guitar, and its semi-hollow (or extensively chambered) body makes it relatively light weight. Its proportional "f-holes" give it a classy vibe. All of these features are secondary to the diversity of great tones available. Take the classic dual humbucker tones of a Les Paul and add the ability to combine single coil sounds and you have an attractive guitar tremendous sonic flexibility. It is great fun to play.
          They aren't kidding when they named it the Les Paul Florentine Pro, it is a professional quality guitar. It is a great feeling and comfortable playing guitar. I would recommend this to anybody considering a dual humbucker guitar.

          Quality workmanship, beautiful honey-burst finish. Love the neck and ease of play. Light weight. Sound and tone are fantastic. For what I play - blues, jazz, fusion, this guitar fits the bill. This guitar would work for almost any style. Some folks complained about it not staying in tune. This is because, on mine anyway, the strings are not wrapped properly. Just install new strings correctly. Also- after the strings it comes with get stretched and broken in, it stays pretty well in tune. I have several electrics and this is the only one I will be playing for a while. I love this guitar!
