OVERVIEW

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:

I wanted a Les Paul and I didn't want to spend thousands to get one. I had my eye on the Traditional Pro and the Standard PlusTop Pro for a while and waited a while because I couldn't decide on which one I wanted. I finally decided on the Tradtional Pro in Desert Burst because I wanted the satin finish on the back of the neck. I don't like glossy necks.

The first one MF sent me was not good, it had large saw marks (grooves) on the bottom of it and the paint was obvioulsy touched up in areas on the bottom and the back of the guitar. It also had paint runs in various spots on the sides and back. Also the wood used for the back of the guitar and the neck was very porous and frankly...just plain ugly, I never saw wood like that on a guitar. I sent it back. It was B stock..if that.

One thing I have to call out MF on is that I have ordered some NEW guitars from them that have clearly been B stock or just plain defective. They were not in mint in any way shape or form. When I buy a new guitar don't send me something with saw marks and paint runs. On the other hand Epiphone needs to get their QC deal together. I sent the first one back and a week later I see that MF is selling a open box Tradtitional Pro in Desert Burst and it's marked as mint. If it's the one I sent back, it's far from mint.

Anyway, I got the second one and it's much better, it has a slight ding in the clear coat on the front but I can live with it. The rest of the guitar is very nice and the wood used on the back of the guitar and neck for this one is completely differnt from the first one. Fit and finish is much better as well, no paint runs, no saw marks. I have no clue what is going on with the wood on these guitars and why the wood would differ that much from model to model...but they do.

It plays great and sounds great, I personally enjoy the coil tapping. It's a fun guitar to play, and this is coming from a person who has played super strats for a very long time.

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

    Straight off, beautiful cherry sunburst finish. I put nickel pickup covers on and schallar straplocks on, sanded the back of the neck a little and away we went. I found myself liking the neck pickup right off, but both are fantastic. I really see no need for this coil splitting. It doesn't sound like a single coil though the sound is interesting. still, put bumble bee caps on there and make it a true humbucker.Thats what I bought it for.

        I got mine used in mint condition. I did a little setting up of the guitar and wow! It plays great! Love the sunburst finish and the pups sound fantastic. I honestly love this guitar! Couldn't be more pleased! I've always wanted a LP but couldn't afford a Gibson...but this guitar is close enough. Another great deal from Musicians Friend!

            I have my 40th b day comin up, and my gf asked me what I want. I said a Gold Top. And in my search I found this one! The coil tap feature is awesome! I didn't want a Gold Top with P-90s. And usually I have a Dimebucker in the bridge. I don't think I will need one for this guitar! I have several Epi Les Pauls, and this is one of the best I have, straight from Musicians friend I plugged in and it was ready to go! Only complaint is there was some glue under the pick guard. Other than that it's an amazing guitar and I got what I wanted for my 40th!

              This is a beautiful guitar with a great sound. The paint and clear coat on my model are just about perfect, with no observable defects. I'm not big on the larger fret size, but I'll get used to it! My one complaint is the sustain on the guitar. This is my first Les Paul, but from what I've heard, this body style lends itself quite well to long sustain. I don't have any fret buzz, but the notes (especially near the 12th fret) only sustain for 4 or 5 seconds. I'm sort of disappointed that I'm going to have to pay someone to set it up for me. Other than that, I love it!

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

                  I want to first mention I have been playing for about 6 years and cannot even recall how many guitars I have bought, sold, traded through the years. Also I want to add out of all those guitars I have never took the time to write a review for one. I am a serious player and practice 1 to 3 hours daily so I have gotten where I understand tone.

                  Anyways to the review. I am just floored by this guitar. I got the Pitch Black one on sale. I thought hey it's worth a try. I have played/owned and like many brands of guitars from Schecter, Ibanez, ESP, Epiphone, Fender and of course Gibson.

                  Speaking of Gibson this is what I am comparing the guitar too. I have owned a Gibson 60's Tribute that's been highly modified for a couple years now. It has what I consider a professional tone. Now saying that, I do not know what Epiphone did when building the Traditional Pro, but it Plays, Feels, and Sounds as good or better than my Gibson OR any Gibson I have played so far in my six years of playing. I haven't had the pleasure of playing a $4K Gibson, but I have played a few $2K ones. Also note I have solely played my Gibson Les Paul for over a year now (A super broke musician and my only electric guitar)and just bought the Epiphone because my tax return. So I can't say it would sound better than a $4K Gibson, but for under 5 Benjamin's this cannot be beat.

                  The feel is nice. The neck is like the 60's style neck, maybe a tad thicker but feels nice and makes fretting chords easy. It's not a shredder neck, that's why there are Ibanez guitars. Back to this guitar the tone oozes Rock N Roll with a nice growl. Just to note that it can easily dial in any tone from Country to melting metal. I mainly play 70's/80's Rock and blues, but I can easily get a tone for a Megadeth or Metallica song too.

                  Please take the time and try one of these and read about the Epiphone factory. The guys who run it are the same guys from the Nashville Gibson plant and everything is as close to the same specs as a Gibson and I would almost go as far as saying the quality of this Tradtional Pro is better than current Gibson's or at least how my Gibson was when I got it.

                  I am so pleased with this guitar that as I write this I have my Gibson up for sale, so I can buy another Epiphone Traditional Pro, but in Desert Burst before they either discountinue this model or raise the price. Honestly if I had the money I would not blink an eye paying double for this quality of an instrument. I still love Gibson's and other brands too, but what I have seen from Epiphone is they stepped their game up tremendously in the last 5 years. Don't get caught up in the name on the headstock. It is owned and manufactured by Gibson just under the Epiphone name.

                    I purchased this guitar because it was a lot less for the "pitch black" model than the others. I was disappointed to find it is satin or flat black. That is why I only gave it 4 stars. However the lower price allowed me to purchase this better guitar.
