The undisputed King of Solidbody Electric guitars since 1952, the Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain-Top has all the features of an LP Standard, but preserves the understated, "plain" top that pays homage to some legendary guitarists' axes. Legendary guitarist and inventor Les Paul lends his signature to every real Les Paul guitar, authenticating his soveriegn design standards, so you know you are getting "the real thing". From the tone-rich, bound, Mahogany body with preffered "plain" Maple top to the set, Mahogany neck and Rosewood fingerboard with traditional trapezoid inlays, to the rich, vintage tone provided by a pair of high-output Alnico Classic Humbuckers, this guitar is the standard for all others. It also features Chrome hardware, Grover™ tuners, with our new Epiphone LockTone™ locking Tune-o-matic bridge and Stop-bar tailpiece that gives you even more sustain and lasting Les Paul warm tone that you dream about.
Now, the classic look of the "plain" Maple top is available to go with the classic Les Paul Sound. This understated look is preferred by many Les Paul fanatics. It still has everything you need in a Les Paul: the solid Mahogany body, Maple top, Alnico-V Humbucking pickups and the Tune-o-matic bridge/Stopbar tailpiece combo for monstrous sustain.
The Classic Look of the Plain Maple Top.
Unlike cheaper designs, all Epiphones feature a 14-degree headstock that gives you more pressure at the nut and so you get more sustain with less tuning hang-ups caused by "string-tree" gadgets.
Alnico Classic humbuckers and the industry-standard Tune-O-Matic bridge.
Rosewood fretboard with trapezoid inlays.
Epiphone utilizes a double vacuum waxing process that ensures optimum performance. The pickup is first placed in the specialized wax vacuuming system before the cover is put in place to ensure that the wax fully penetrates to the very center of the pickup and solidifies all parts. After the cover is placed on, it is again given a second vacuum wax bath until the unit is completely saturated with wax.
To increase reliability and ensure consistent performance, Epiphone's proprietary output jacks feature an improved contact shape and heavy-duty spring steel.
All Epiphones feature our all-metal, USA designed switches for reliable contact and longer life.
Fully adjustable, the tunomatic remains a classic after over 50 years. Unlike guitars fitted with tremolos, there are no tuning or re-stringing difficulties. Plus, tone and sustain are improved because all string vibrations are transferred directly to the guitar.
Epiphone is passionate about performance. That's why their instruments use one-inch diameter potentiometers for better "throw," longer life and reliable service.
For unequalled reliability as well as ease of service, Epiphone wiring harnesses feature quick-connectors.

Top customer reviews
The guitar is easy to play and sounds great. I did have a cheap strat knock-off that I bought in the late 80s for $40 but the Les Paul is in a different league than the strat in terms of feel and sound. The Les Paul stays in tune for a long time and has a great sound... these are just two of the many features that Gibsons and Epiphones are known for. Anyone who plays guitar and buys a Les Paul will know exactly what I mean when they read that comment. You will NOT be disappointed with this guitar.
Now, I have started playing again after not doing so for almost 20 years... and I picked right up from where I left off.
I don't know if it is an issue in shipping (no dents in packaging, but it might have), or at the factory (most likely), but I've already sent it back and will be buying it in person so I can make sure everything is in working order.
In conclusion, if buying this as a gift make sure to open it and do a quick test of things as there is a lot that can potentially go wrong in shipping guitars on top of factory defects/lemons which seems to be the case in my situation.
Not related to the product, but Amazons' return policy is excellent and swift.
After returning and talking to more knowledgeable guitar folk it turns out what I described (and commenters confirmed) is that this happens every so often. The humidity, temperature, storage, loading, shipping, delivery... so very many ways for a guitar to go out of whack. In my particular case, in this one instance, the neck was completely bowed and no way of adjusting to a playable state - it was just a lemon. My original review score was based off the assumption of poor quality control, but I purchased this exact model in store and it is a marvelous guitar, well worth the price (and I've updated my score to reflect that).
I love it! This is an awesome guitar for the money!
It has great tone, nice fretboard, and wonderful looks.
