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:

      I received this guitar today about 6 hours ago and have been playing it ever since. Normally I do not write reviews but decided to make an exception. It's still early obviously, but I love this guitar. First, it is BEAUTIFUL. The picture does this guitar no justice. The setup is almost perfect. No fret buzz, no problems at all. I had never ordered a guitar on line and was expecting the worst. Sounds and plays really great. Fast delivery and I got it on sale... saved enough to buy the case. Love It.

            The photos in the catalog are terrible,in person this is a beautiful instrument with a deep finish that shows the grain of the wood.Not a flaw any where. Gibson should follow the lead of Epiphone in providing a quality instrument at this price.If you are looking for that special Les Paul,buy this fantastic guitar.

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

            This one you will want to get a hard case for. I already had one ready for it. The Desert Burst finish is glossy and beautiful - the MF pics do not do it any justice at all. This is a well built, highly attractive, well-playing ax, and it has a wonderful neck and perfect buttery action. It also has very good sounding pups, Probuckers are just as good as Burstbuckers in my book. The binding and construction quality are wonderful. I cannot believe I got this limited edition LP standard flame top with this quality, and for the price I paid. I have 3 various Gibson Studios and an Epiphone AA Standard Plus Pro Black Cherry flame top, and now this fantastic looking and tonally hot ax, easily could become my favorite LP - yes, even unmodified. The sustain is basically for eternity. I love the neck position sound on this. If you want bells and chimes, plug this into any Fender tweed, Vox AC-15/AC-30, or Laney Lionheart. Plug it into ANYTHING! I feel like I totally won. Only thing is it has cheap hats, which I think I will replace with Fender Tele knurled chrome knobs that will match pup covers and Grovers - that will look hot and be fun to use un-numbered hats. Feel your way to your dialed-in tone, and rock you face off. This ax can go from blues to metal, and there would be zero shame if this were your only guitar! I will buy another one if anything happens to this one, because it is such a very worthy LP. I may buy another one anyways if one comes in condition level 1 or 2, just because it's a great ax!

              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!

                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!!

                    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.

                      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.
