OVERVIEW

Stunning Les Paul looks matched with professional guitar appointments.

Epiphone's history and association with Les Paul dates way back to the days when Les, working at the Epiphone factory on 14th St. in New York, created the world's first electric guitar. Over the years, Les continued to work closely with Epiphone by reviewing new product ideas and offering suggestions. The Epiphone Les Paul PlusTop PRO electric guitar combines the best of Les Paul's original design with new features that set this Epiphone guitar apart.

Professional Electronics
The Les Paul PlusTop PRO uses Epiphone's 4-wire, nickel/silver base humbuckers with newly tooled, USA-style bobbins. In the neck position is Epiphone's chrome-covered ProBucker-2 with warm, thick vintage tone. It's uniquely paired with a chrome-covered ProBucker-3 humbucker, an inspired by version of Gibson's BurstBucker-3, that features unevenly wound coils and Alnico-II magnets that replicate that "Patent Applied for" airy tone. To top it all off, both volume controls feature push/pull potentiometers allowing you to coil-split each pickup for single-coil sounds. Combined with the 3-way toggle, you get 6 unique sounds from one great Les Paul guitar.

Premium tone woods
The Epiphone Les Paul PlusTop PRO guitar has a solid mahogany back with a gorgeous, carved flame top. Its solid mahogany neck is hand-fitted and glued into the body for excellent neck-to-body contact and resonates almost like one continuous piece of wood.

Loaded with add-ons
Other features on the Epiphone Les Paul included quality Grover tuners, a traditional cream-colored pickguard, and LockTone tune-o-matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece.

FEATURES
  • Mahogany body
  • Carved flamed maple top
  • 24.75" Scale set-in mahogany neck
  • Rosewood fretboard
  • 22 Medium jumbo frets
  • ProBucker 2 humbucking neck pickup with coil-split
  • ProBucker 3 humbucking bridge pickup with coil-split
  • LockTone tune-o-matic bridge
  • LockTone stopbar tailpiece
  • Grover tuners

    Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul PlusTop PRO Electric Guitar:

    Love this guitar. When I received it, I changed the strings and did a set up to my preference. The split coil I really like. You can get so many nice tones with this guitar. The feel of the neck is thinner than my Gibson LP. This Epi LP is well worth the money!

      Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul PlusTop PRO Electric Guitar:

      The best guitar I ever held yet! Looks beautiful, and sounds great. I always meant to buy an LP, but Gibsons are way overpriced so I settled on an Epi. Great decision, if I may say so myself. I was reluctant at first due to reviews of fret buzz??? What fret buzz!!

          Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul PlusTop PRO Electric Guitar:

          Overall, it is an amazing guitar. The tone, sound, feel and electronics are just plain awesome. But buzzing from 4~6th strings on 3~5th fret is little bit disappointing. I know not so many people bother having a little bit of buzz but for the people who are sensitive on this like me, make sure that you know that you know how to do set up before you buy it.

            Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul PlusTop PRO Electric Guitar:

            I bought the antique natural. The photo does not do it justice. The finish gleams. Sometimes I just sit and look at it. I put my preferred light gage strings on it and it sounds great run through my Digitech pedal board and Fender amp. I have small hands so I love the slim neck. I have no complaints. I got a lot for my money.

              Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul PlusTop PRO Electric Guitar:

              Wow, this axe is awesome. The pups really scream with an overdrive pedal. It was a toss up betweeen the trans amber and the antique natural. I couldn't tell much difference except the amber was a bit more orange. Mine has a fatter neck than my other epi LP plus tops. The craftsmanship is excellent on mine and it feels solid like a LP should. I play classic and southern rock and this axe can handle it and more. Lots of tone combinations. The price was right, it was packed well and shipped free...whatta deal!!!!

                  I didn't want to order this off the internet because I couldn't see pictures too well. I was afraid the paint was going to be dull or wrong color pattern. I even called the 800 num and the guy pretty much reread the description and looked at the same pictures and came to the conclusion it was a dull satin finish. but on other links I saw better pictures. I ordered the dessert burst and happy with what came in. this paint does have a high gloss. and that makes all the difference. its a beautiful guitar. don't be fooled by the bad pictures.
