Epiphone

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.

              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.

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

              First let me say that this is a very nice looking guitar that plays great. It is almost on par with a gibson but that is where the value comes in. It has a not quite there feel but good enough. It is definitely not cheaply made and very well built. I've had it for 3 weeks now and I must say that the only issue I have is with the tuners not holding their tune. I've tried some recommended settings with no results. Maybe I got a lemon? I have the transblack and it comes with wilkinson deluxe tuners. Every two days I have to re-tune. I may just replace them with grovers or gibson ones if I find that they fit.

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

              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!!

                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:

                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.

                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.

                        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.
