Ready to plug in and rock on.
Since the beginning of rock’n’roll, the Les Paul has been considered the ultimate electric guitar and Epiphone’s Les Paul Melody Maker E1 electric guitar continues that long tradition of innovation with a lightweight poplar body that’s slimmer than a vintage Les Paul making it easy to hold for new players.
The bolt-on mahogany neck has a traditional 24.75" scale with an easy-to-play SlimTaper-D profile. Even the headstock of the Les Paul SL has the look of a classic Les Paul with Epiphone’s trademark “Clipped Ear” design, the same “Bell-Shaped” truss rod cover seen vintage models, and '60s era Epiphone logo and a “2017” Edition logo on the back of the headstock.
