Epiphone Les Paul 100
Cut From the Same Cloth as the Les Paul 1952 Original
The Les Paul 100 is a superb instrument for players looking for an affordable but reliable electric guitar that has the classic look, sound and feel of a Les Paul. The Les Paul 100 is cut to similar specs as Les' 1952 original and has everything new and professional guitarists look for in a quality instrument.
The Les Paul 100 is all you need to get that great Les Paul sound. The all-mahogany body includes a maple top which is lighter and slimmer than full size Les Pauls, making it easy to hold for long practices and gigs. The bolt-on mahogany neck features the "Les Paul" classic scale length of 24.75" with a 1.68" nut width, rosewood fingerboard, and dot inlays. The Les Paul 100 also comes in four stunning colors including ebony, Heritage Cherry, Sunburst, and Vintage Sunburst.
The tone of the Les Paul 100 comes from two Alnico V Humbucker pickups with tone and volume controls for each. The all-metal hardware includes the output jack and a LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge, all made to the same standard of excellence as all other Les Pauls.
Quality Epiphone Hardware
The Les Paul 100 features Epiphone all-metal hardware that can last for the lifetime of your guitar including a patented LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and StopBar tailpiece and premium 14:1 die-cast machine heads.
Epiphone is one of American's oldest and most revered instrument makers and since 1873, Epiphone has made instruments for every style of popular music. The name evokes both history and the spirit of invention. Epiphone has been an audible presence in every great musical era from the mandolin craze of the early 1900s to jazz age guitars of the 1920s. From swing-era archtops through post-war pop, jazz, R&B, and early rock n' roll. From the "British Invasion" to heavy metal, punk, grunge, and thrash. And now, in the 21st century, new Epiphone technical breakthroughs such as the ProBucker pickup, series parallel switching, built-in KillSwitch pots, the Shadow NanoFlex and NanoMag pickup systems, and premier acoustic/electric guitars with the eSonic preamp have brought the historic name to a new generation.
