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!!

This is a very good looking guitar.

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.

    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 recently purchased this guitar not really knowing what to expect in terms of Indonesian workmanship and tone. I am very impressed 9have the honeyburst finish) and have found this guitar a beauty to behold and has great humbucker tone - smooth as silk but can muster up a lot of bite, as well. Sounds great with some overdrive. The coil tap is a nice feature and have used it on some songs with our worship team, but you have to crank up the volume a bit - understandable since you're only working off one pickup. The hollowbody and F-holes give it a classy look and less weight during a gig is a big plus. I wouldn't hesitate buying again knowing what I know now. Grab one while they last at this great price!

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

            The good, and bad.

            First, I really like this guitar. It has a beautiful finish. It's almost orgasmic to look at. It's super light, and it has a beutifully bright sound on the bridge pick up. Incredible for certain songs where you might desire that kind of sound. The problem with this guitar, so far, is that at the very bottom of the neck, one of the frets is slightly sticking out and causing my 1st string to get caught if I hit it too hard. I just picked this guitar up the other day. So, I'm taking it back to have them either fix or replace it. Another problem I've noticed (as someone else commented on) is that the G string has been slipping a bit. I've yet to replace the strings however, so this might resolve the issue. One final comment, as others have said, is that the pickups are a bit weak. Don't get me wrong, in the bridge position this thing can get some sweet gain, and I can play some awesome pinch squeles; however, when I was playing with my band I noticed a significant reduction in the fullness in comparison to my full body epi les paul. I've also read online that 59 duncan pickups would be a great swap, and I plan on trying that at some point.

            Again, I really like this guitar, but they are gonna either gonna fix that fret, or i'm going with PRS :)

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

            Just wanted to update my first review. It was a great guitar in January and still is. One thing I have noticed: the volume pots come on a little quickly for me. They go from no sound to fairly loud instantly. You can,, of course, compensate for this with your amp. but it is a little irritating. The string slipping was cured completely by changing to the new (to me) D'Addario NY/XL strings. One more thing: the price dropped more than 15% making it even a better deal. This is your lucky day.

              I am new to electric guitar, so I am not the one who knows all about electric guitars. I will say I am very glad I selected the Epiphone Les Paul Florentine as my first electric. The sound is great and the quality is great. The electric is a completely different animal than acoustic. With todays amps, the different sounds are endless. I would recommend this wonderful guitar to anyone.
