The Les Paul Studio Chameleon has a "flip-flop" paint finish--the color changes depending on the light you're in. The Les Paul Chameleon is the perfect electric guitar under the stage lights!
The original idea for the Epiphone Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar was to create a somewhat lower-priced Les Paul guitar by dispensing with some cosmetics. The result was an especially clean, handsome guitar with all the Les Paul essentials. The response to this guitar has been so great, Epiphone just keeps coming up with new ideas for it!
Newly designed in 2004, the Studio was given a thicker body that matches its namesake, hot open-coil Alnico Classic humbuckers, a set mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard, and mahogany body with carved top. Limited lifetime warranty.

I've owned the green LP since 2008. It's been played in numerous shows since then. Lugged around in a soft case. I once swung it around my neck and the strap broke. The guitarist landed flat on the floor and when I picked it up it was barely out of tune. It's a solid guitar with a nice throaty sound and beautiful paint job. If you come across one for a decent price it's worth a purchase.
- Was this a gift?:
I purchased this guitar as a first electric guitar after using my Yamaha FD02 acoustic for a year. I thought this guitar would be like the normal lp studio, but no, this guitar has a warmer tone, and a fatter sound. It has grover tuners, and alnico classic magnets. I play this thing through a Crate GT30 amplifier with no effects, and this can rock just about as good as Jade Puget from AFI.
Ive Had This guitar For 5 Months And No Problems At All! I Love It! Get It Now!.... What Are You Waiting For?!
Every picture you'll ever see of a Chameleon Les Paul will not do justice to the live finish. Now, most people will go for the classic body combined with the cutting-edge colors. What drew me to the Chameleon, though, was the price. I was considering getting a Telecaster rather than the Les Paul, but there was a $150 difference. I loved the sound of both, and I settled on the cheaper of the two. I was blown away when I plugged into my Marshall half stack and WD7 Wah. IT SOUNDS AMAZING. The only real downside is, that for such a unique paint job, in chips very easily. I use an Ibanez RG120 also, and I use the two for completely different things. The sound of the Chameleon is just so unique, that you can reach cutting highs or warm lows with a single flip of the treble switch. I love it.
I got this guitar because of the price, and it blew me away. As soon as I got it though I replaced the strings with some DR 11 guage. Guitar was set up pretty good too...no buzz issues or intonation. The quality was really GREAT! It sounded really good for the distortion stuff I play. It had a great thick sound. Ive owned many Epis and a couple of Gibsons. Other than a small paint bubble the guitar cosmetically was great. I'll still pick up my fender american standard when it comes to playin in clean though.
I've been looking at these for a few years. I thought they were horrid. Then I saw them in person. WOW. The pictures do not do justice. This guitar sounds amazing too! It is the most resonant, vibrant electric I have ever played. The sound is so rich and sounds wonderful clean or overdriven, even distortion is great. Stock pickups are fantastic in my opinion. The only bad thing I've experienced is that one fret is uneven to the others, only on the B string too (other strings are fine when fretted) and I had to raise the action higher than typical (for me) to get rid of the buzz. Still super fast even with the neck adjustment. Still, I don't care. This guitar is great. A String change would probably fix my issue.
When this guitar arrived, I was amazed to see the great shape it was in and I fell in love with the color. I had been trying out different guitars out but I really wanted a Les Paul, I tried out a Gibson Les Paul but it was too expensive, I've been playing for some time now but never really bought an electric guitar of my own, this is my first as I have always been using guitars people lend me, the finish undiscribably beautiful in its Lime/Silver tone, I'd buy all tones if I had the money. I play it through a busted up practice amp and I know its a crime but the pickups are HOT, you can get a ton of tonal varieties out of it, i gave this guitar a 4.5 because the tuners didnt exactly stay in tune when I took it out, I am an elitist and I was aiming for an Epi Les Paul Standard or an SG custom vintage white G-400(the one with three pickups) but this one took the cake, and ate it too. Best budget guitar out there in my honest opinion.
