The Epiphone version of the famous Oxblood Les Paul.
The Limited Edition Epiphone 1954 Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar has a maple top with a solid mahogany body. The oxblood finish is a deep chocolate-brown color that shows some oxblood tints in certain light. The guitar's set mahogany neck has a comfortable '50s rounded neck profile and a 22-fret rosewood fretboard with trapezoid inlays. Epiphone loaded their 1954 Les Paul Standard remake with an Alnico Classic Humbucking pickup in the neck position and a high-output Alnico Classic Plus humbucker in the bridge position. Individual pickup volume and tone controls, and a 3-way select toggle give you command of this tone machine. This limited-edition Epiphone guitar has nickel hardware including precision die-cast tuning machines, and a vintage wraparound stopbar bridge/tailpiece.

This 1954 Les Paul rules!!! I'm happy i purchased it. The Oxblood finish looks like glass. Just had to lower the action a little to my specs, slapped on some Ernie Ball Super Slinky's, and i was off to the races. Aloha!!!!!!
the truss rod was completely loose... action at the 12th fret was 1/4 inch... major fret buzz in the upper register... no amount of bridge / truss adjustment made this guitar comfortable to play above the 5th fret... very disappointed... It will most likely need a fret dressing to make it playable. The tuners suck... The electronics are cheap... there is a connector between the jack and the switch that drops 2db... On the good side this thing has serious tone unplugged... you can feel it sing ... the over tones are amazing and its the only reason I didn't return it right away... I think it has really good potential as a modified but out of the box, what a stinker...
Musicians Friend has this Guitar at a Great price. Mine was Purfect! The Top looked like a Quilted Maple top contrary to a previous review. Perhaps they vary from Guitar to Guitar. Has a Great feel to it. Neck is Fast! Easy to play. Mine came out of the Box in tune. If you have the means, get one....while you still can!
This a really interesting model by Epiphone which includes several features recalling Gibson's mid 1950's designs. Other's have spoken well of it and I agree it is finished nicely, interesting color, decent tuners, slightly hotter bridge pickup, etc. What I really want to mention is that you really should go and find one on the wall somewhere and play it awhile. Why? Because many people seem to miss, or fail to understand what is involved with the term, "Neck Profile: '50s rounded". If you are used to modern neck shapes, the tiny Ibanez, Jackson, etc., or more standard Fender shapes or even the Gibson/Epiphone "slim taper", you will find this '50s shape to be very large and very "fat" feeling. I like it okay myself and if you are a blues person or do a lot of string bending you'll come to appreciate having lots of neck to grab, but if you are looking for a high speed, heavy-metal arpeggio, dancing around on, guitar you may find this neck a bit slow for your style needs. Also if you are young, female, or just have smaller hands you may find this neck shape a bit daunting. Again, it is a very nice, very interesting, model that plays well and sounds great but you should always try things out live first if at all possible.
Man this guitar rocks! Looks... tone... feel... Once again Epi has managed to put together a great guitar for the money (I have several Epi guitars that I've collected over the years). The only thing I've done is change the strings (I like Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinky) and a minor adj to the action, and this axe plays and sounds phenomenal. And the finish is killer too! Get one while you can.
First of all, i just gotta say that i have never seen so much quality for the price. I got a killer deal on this so i said why not and i bought it. The finish is incredible and the hardware compliments it nicely. The pickups are high output but can get a nice clean tone. I was amazed how good it sounded. I had tried the Gibson Sg special before finding this and this blew the sg away. The tuners are great, the bridge is correctly intonated and the whole thing is great quality. And to make it better, the price is that of a mim strat. Also, the guitar looks 50 times better in person that on the computer because the oxblood finish is so deep. However, the picture is not exactly what your receiving. Instead of tophats knobs, the guitar has gold speed knobs. Also the truss rod cover is blank. Additionally, it looks like the guitar has a flamed maple top in the picture but its not like that in real life. Anyways, its an awesome guitar!!! If you can find one, you should buy it.
I have owned Epi Pauls and Gibson Pauls and there has been a difference in feel between the two in the past and certainly in clarity of pickups. I play a Marshall vintage modern and that amp is about using your guitars volume controls to control tone. That being said... the feel of this guitar is comfortable the weight seems comparable to the gibson studios on the market at this time... the finish was impeccable the intonation was solid as was the action it came with 0.10 gauge strings. I think the only improvement I might make down the road would be to replace the stock pickups, ..which are fine with Rio Grande's or Fralins for more clarity and control from the volume controls. that is my minor....recommendation. The guitar is a joy to play I have been playing it for days and am very satisfied ...I was looking for other reviews and having found only the previous gentleman's thought I would contribute. A very nice product
I recently purchased this guitar and put her through the paces with a Marshall Vintage Modern 2266 combo. The pickups were hot but when lowered evened out nicely. Rolling off the volume, the pickups did clean up with some loss of tone, but overall were very satisfactory. Build and feel were excellent. Intonation seemed good out of the box and the action with tens was very comfortable. The finish is beautiful and the guitar feels balanced and solid. Very enjoyable instrument at an excellent value.
This is the best guitar I have ever played. It has a great old school style and the finish is amazing. If not looking to spend alot of money, you should definetly get this guitar.
