Epiphone

Les Paul tradition combined with modern professional features.

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 Traditional 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 Traditional Pro uses Epiphone's 4-wire, nickel/silver base humbuckers with newly tooled, USA-style bobbins. In the neck position is the Alnico Classic Pro humbucker with Alnico-II warm, thick vintage tone and open zebra coils. It's uniquely paired with Epiphone's ProBucker-3 humbucker. An inspired by version of Gibson's BurstBucker-3, the Les Paul guitar features unevenly wound coils and Alnico-II magnets that replicate that "Patent Applied for" airy tone. You'll love the way they sound! 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.

Tone Woods with Great Feel!
The Epiphone Les Paul Traditional Pro guitar has a solid mahogany back with a carved top and a solid mahogany neck that's hand-fitted and glued into the body for excellent neck-to-body contact and acting almost like one continuous piece of wood. The guitar neck features a SlimTaper™ D profile with a smooth and fast "worn" type finish on the back of the neck and body.

Loaded with premium add-ons!
Other features on the Epiphone Les Paul included quality Grover tuners, a traditional cream-colored pickguard, LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge/stopbar, and Epiphone's own StrapLocks. Like every Epiphone, the electric guitar features their Limited Lifetime warranty backed by world famous 24/7/365 day Gibson Customer Service.

I am giving this guitar a 10, not because it's perfect per se, but because what you get for this price is amazing. This was the nicest Epiphone I've played, and was better than a lot of Gibson Studios I played. Obviously, this isn't the $1800 Gibson version, which is nicer than this guitar. But If this guitar had the gibson headstock on it, They'd be selling it for a lot more than this, trust me. If you're trying to decide between this and a cheap studio, or even a different Epiphone, let me make this easy. Buy this guitar. Plays great, beautiful neck (which is where the satin finish shines, it feels great!), pretty darn fine pickups, holds tuning extremely well, and on top of it, mine came with a hardshell case and strap locks. You just can't do any better than this in a guitar at this price point. Period.
A lot of things to like about this guitar in the way of features. Coil split is useful. When using only on pickup on coil split, there isn't a huge tone change, but if you use both 'buckers on coil split at once, you get a really nice Fender-y tone. As close to Fender single coils as you'll get with a mahogany body. All the nicer Epiphone parts, Grovers, etc. The Burstbucker bridge pickup is absolutely beautiful, I anticipated just throwing in an extra Seymour Duncan custom custom I had laying around, but honestly, I'll leave the burstbucker. Neck pickup is nice too, great for vintage Led Zeppelin, early Rush, Jethro Tull, all that kinda of stuff. Honestly, this guitar is a 70's machine to the max.
I was somewhat worried about ordering an Epiphone through the internet, but I can say that when I opened up the box, I was blown away. She feels awesome, if you hear anything about this guitar not having a maple cap, and that adversely affecting tone, don't sweat it. This guitar cuts through a mix better than my old LP Studio with a maple cap. Got the nice fingerboard binging, the satin finish is beautiful, and the guitar overall just feels VERY solid. Even the output jack is the most durable feeling output jack I've ever used.
Amazing value. Literally the best deal on any guitar that i've ever bought, or someone i knew bought. Buddy of mine plays a USA special strat, and offered to trade me. And I told him no way in heck. This thing's an amazing guitar for the money.

well the ups man dropped off my les paul pro today, I unpacked the guitar and right away I noticed that the packing was substandard.The strap locks fell off during shipping and did a number on the finish.Speaking of finish the neck had a flat smooth finish as stated in the description, what is doesnt tell you is that the whole back of the guitar has the same finish that looks like it was rolled on...UGLY.Now dont get me wrong I finished unpacking and pluged her in to my 1973 Traynor MK.III and gave her a good work out,the coil tap is a nice feature.. the factory set up was a joke.the finish of the front of the guitar had scratches but I must admit that she played perty nice and with a proper set up would be ok. value for the money...not even close.I packed her back up and sent it back the same day...IMO Epiphone make a good guitar. The pro might be right for you,its your call .....MF as always very helpfull, thanks

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

    This guitar now hangs on my wall with my 77 gibson black les paul custom, 76 fender blue strat and 3 c.f. martins! It is an excellent guitar and does not seem to really be an economy thing. excellent play ability, tone, and finish! I tried it on a whim and am very glad I purchased it. This is an excellent replacement guitar for the time being if you cant afford the real deal Gibson Les Paul!! In time you may want to change the pickups to your own personal tatste but the factory ones work well for now!!

    Nice action a string buzzed a titch. No biggie. Hate the way they did the back. Matte finish shows where body is glued too much. Still debating on not to send back. Has a that slash sound with alnico II mag pickups.

        I was immediately drawn by the looks of this beauty. I sat down an played for a while and since I was in the store to buy a guitar, I went ahead and brought it home. I have played every day for a year, and it just keeps getting better. I have thought about getting a 335 or 339, but every time I pick up my Trad Pro, I change my mind.

        I was looking for a great value at a cheap price..I found it! I took a chance on a described "cosmetic defects" guitar since the price was so low and I've been wanting to practice some basic luthier skills anyways and as expected it has some fret buzz and intonation was off, fun quick fixes on both. But surpisingly I only found one minor cosmetic defect in this guitar! Very pleased!

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

            I'm really liking this new guitar, it's a great Les Paul for the price. I previously owned two Epiphone Standard LPs (each with different custom pickup arrangements) and loved them, but I'm enjoying the Traditional Pro more. Sounds great through my Fender amp, (hot rod blues jr III), but haven't tried it through anything else, or with any effects pedals. It sounds great clean, and great with amp gain.

            I'm liking the pickups a lot, they produce a great sound, and the push/pull volume knobs really do add some great tone options. If I pull both volume knobs out, the guitar's clean sound becomes more neutral than your typical Les Paul, resembling (if only a little) a Fender strat. It's a nice sound option to have on a Les Paul, I get a great blues tone through my amp doing that.

            And if you've ever had a guitar strap come off, you'll appreciate the straplocks this guitar comes with a lot.

            (I got the Wine Red color, it's a little lighter than in the pictures but it's not at all a bad thing. I think it looks more brilliant in person, I really like it.)

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

              I got this in Wine Red, and it looks very beautiful, although it doesn't look quite as dark as in the picture, but don't let that discourage you, it still looks like art. It is an Epiphone, so the binding isn't real, and if I look hard enough, I can see where the paint got onto what is supposed to be the binding, but ultimately it's no big deal, it still looks great. I suppose for the rest of the review, I'll be comparing the Les Paul to my previous guitar, a Schecter Damien Elite, which I really did like. I really like the bridge style on LPs, as opposed to string-throughs. Plus the actual bridge is of higher quality than the Schecter's. I guess I can give the Schecter credit, it had slightly better Grovers, 18:1 I think. These aren't bad, though; I wouldn't even bother changing them. LPs have a reputation for being heavy, but this isn't too far off from my Schecter, which wasn't that bad. The neck of this guitar isn't finished, which is fine, but my Schecter had some kind of satin finish or something, and I really liked it a little more. Speaking of the neck, I actually prefer the D-shape to the Schecter's C-shape, but that's probably because I play a lot of rhythm stuff and stay on the lower side of the neck, and it just feels better to me. Higher on the neck, though, it gets really tricky on the LP, which has been true since they were made, I'm sure. Onto the pickups: I got rid of my Schecter because it had EMGs in it, which made it play metal with ease, but they just didn't feel organic enough, and I could hardly distinguish different notes; everything sort of blended together, and not in a good way. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to squeeze enough out of these, that maybe they wouldn't be "hot" enough, but these sound great, and I can get the metal tone I need when I run it through the Metal M*** I ordered along with this (I couldn't type the name because it was "profane"). All in all, it plays great, looks great, arrived pretty much set-up, and it works for me.

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

                Got this latest guitar yesterday, and I think it's a steal. The build quality appears to be excellent. The neck shape is a bit thicker than my '56 Gold Top, and the pseudo "worn" finish on the back of the neck (just no lacquer) simply seems like a production money-saver to me. I'll wax and buff it to get a smoother surface. The pickups are fine, for what they are. And, the coil-splitting capability is nice. At some point I'll replace them with Seymour Duncans.

                The set-up wasn't good, and the intonation is a mess. I can fix that today pretty quickly. And, that's one reason I wanted to write this review. I'm always sort of amused by people's complaints about poor set-up from the factory. What exactly did they expect? A factory is composed of workers who assemble things; they're not musicians. Set-up is something YOU do to create an instrument that complements your playing style. And, it's your responsibility to know enough about your guitar to be able to do that.

                These Chinese-made guitars represent a tremendous value. Not terribly long ago, you couldn't find a guitar this well-made with these features for this ridiculously low price. They've transformed the guitar market. So buy one, modify it, play it and enjoy it. It's a bargain.

                      Been playing for almost 20 years, and have gone through my share of equipment. Currently have 3 Gibsons,(LP, SG, & flying V) and a USA custom shop Peavey HP and play thru Peavey XXX amps. Bought mine used for less than half of a new one. It's a 2004 LP STD with the HOTCH pups from Korea. Stock pups aren't really that bad, but that touch of muddiness is there especially in the low end, but I wouldn't care if I wouldn't play out. My Gibson has Burstbucker pros and the Epi's aren't as hot and not quite as clear.

                      For the cost of a new Epi, I would probably go for a faded or used Gibson, but for the price these go for used, add new pups and I can't tell much of a difference in sound from my Gibson. If you can get over having the headstock say "Epiphone" and not "Gibson" and just use your ears, you will love it. Look at these at used prices and you can get a custom, or whatever great finish you like and up grade it for a lot less than getting a Gibson. Don't get me wrong I probably won't sell my Gibsons because of this, but will play it along side of them.
