OVERVIEW

A true ES-style archtop with Les Paul style ProBucker pickups.

Epiphone, a world leader in archtop design, presents the Les Paul ES PRO, a true ES-style archtop that combines Epiphone’s long tradition of building superior archtops with the classic sound and profile of the world’s #1 electric guitar, the Les Paul.

Featuring an ES-style body f-holes with traditional ES-body bracing, Epiphone ProBuckers with coil-tapping, a Dual-Action Truss Rod, Grover Rotomatic machine heads, LockTone bridge, and Stopbar tailpiece. The Les Paul ES PRO archtop hollowbody features a Flame Maple Top and Maple Body with the classic Les Paul profile with carved f-holes inspired by legendary ES-style archtops like the Casino, Sheraton, and the “335.” The body top and back has single layer white binding along with a cream pickguard.

The Les Paul style 24.75 in. scale neck has single layer Pure White binding and is made from Mahogany with a 1960s SlimTaper D-profile. The Rosewood fingerboard has medium jumbo frets, a 12” radius, and “Trapeze” pearloid inlays found on '50s era Les Pauls. Inside the ES-PRO hollow body is a center block and counter brace, both hallmarks of a true ES-style archtop. 

ProBucker Pickups with “P.A.F” Sound
Like many Epiphone Les Pauls, the new Les Paul ES-PRO is powered by Epiphone’s critically acclaimed ProBucker pickups, designed to recreate the first generation of hand wound Les Paul humbuckers from the 1950s that today can only be found in rare “Sunburst” Les Pauls that go for over $150,000 on the vintage market.  

Epiphone ProBucker humbucker pickups are made with the same 42 gauge Elektrisola wire as the originals plus 18% Nickel Silver unit bases and covers, the same alloy used by Gibson for their BurstBucker pickups. The Les Paul ES-PRO features an Epiphone ProBucker-2 in the neck position and a slightly “hotter” Epiphone ProBucker-3 in the bridge position for leads. Both pickups also come with coil-tapping, activated by a simple push/pull of each pickup’s volume control, which allows players to mix single coil and humbucker tones together in endless combinations.

Each pickup has “Les Paul” style volume and tone controls with Gold RidgeTop "top hat" knobs with metal pointers. The 3-way Pickup Selector has a white toggle cap. The Les Paul ES-PRO’s archtop body design combined with its vintage-toned ProBucker pickups makes it one of today’s most versatile electric guitars. And, it’s available for the fraction of the cost of a vintage ES-style archtop or Les Paul.

Solid Epiphone Hardware
The Les Paul ES PRO comes with world class rock solid Epiphone hardware including a solid nickel fully adjustable LockTone bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, a solid nickel Heavy-Duty Non-Rotating 1/4 in. output jack with square jack plate, and legendary Grover Rotomatics machine heads with an 18:1 turning ratio for fast and accurate tuning.

Mixed feelings

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul ES Pro Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

3.5 stars really. Nice looking light guitar. The ProBucker sounds great for a guitar in this price range but I still swapped in a '57 Classic because the last thing a light hollow body needs (for my taste) is extra upper mids although if you have a good amp with triple tone adjustments you can compensate. Not sure if this is standard procedure (probably is unfortunately) but there really should be a block behind the strap pegs to give the screws more meat to thread into!!! That's the kind of craftsmanship globalization has led to. The guitar is quite neck heavy but that's not really a flaw but rather a consequence of a hollow body. I ordered plastic tuner buttons to help and it would be nice if Epiphone had done that instead. Overall it's an awesome guitar for the price and will give great tone with those pickups if you have a good tube amp. The primary reason why I only rated three stars is that I've been playing a cheap Agile knock off for years (sounds amazing with a '57 in the bridge) that plays better than the Epiphone! I know it takes time to adjust but it's been weeks and still the same sentiment. I suspect the neck dive is the primary culprit but I'll have to get used to it because i really needed a light guitar like this. BTW, I got it down to 6.275 pounds with a billet aluminum bridge, taking off the pick guard which I do anyway, and putting a gutted pickup in the neck position. I estimate the plastic tuner buttons will drop it down to 6.1 or so but more importantly add some neck/body balance.

For the price, hard to beat

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul ES Pro Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

Sounds fantastic, has that hollow body sound with great humbucking (and coil tap) pickups.

The finish has its issues, but it's not a USA made guitar, so flawless finish isn't to be expected, although that would be nice.

It plays fantastic, sounds great and for the price, if you want a hollow body guitar in a smaller footprint body, this is a great way to go. No regrets on my part in spite of buying it just to try out.

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul ES Pro Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

    I'm recently retired and have played for 50+ years. Decided to add to my collection but can not afford the price tag on an ES 335 or the Solid body Les Paul etc. Saw this and bought it based on good reviews. I am impressed! Good balance, beautiful finish ( wine ), great sound. The set-up was fair to good, will be lowering the action somewhat after I restring it. It is much higher than 4/64 at the 12th ( more like 1/8) but most likely will have fret buzz at a lower setting with these strings. The strings that come with it are fair quality, a bit too rough for my style but sound good. All-in-all, a very decent guitar for the price!

        Comments about Epiphone Les Paul ES Pro Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

        I purchased the Epiphone Les Paul ES Pro because of the weight of 7 pounds as apposed to 9.5 pounds of a solid body guitar. I plugged the guitar up to my Fender Champion 100 amp and the pickup noise started but I was determined to make this work. After some research I found that hollow body guitars are more susceptible to feed back than solid body guitars are. So I changed the location of my amp so it was not in direct alignment with my guitar play station which is about 15 feet away. The amp is now offset by 2 feet form the guitar play station. Finally a quite Les Paul ES and the noise problem with my Fender 72 Telecaster Deluxe is now gone.

        Now fro the review. Out of the box the guitar needed some minor adjustments to the action and
        annotation. However, this is an amazing looking guitar, that plays great and sounds great. The youtube reviews of this guitar in now way reflects how this guitar really sounds. You have to play this guitar to appreciate the sound that you can get out of this small hollow guitar. Play this guitar and ignore the youtube stuff about this guitar. This is my fifth guitar from Musicians Friend, so far high quality products, fast delivery and good customer service. Thanks Guys!!
