Epiphone Les Paul Standard Pro
The Epiphone Les Paul Standard Pro features Epiphone's premium Pro-Bucker 2 and Pro-Bucker 3 Pickups and a whole host of beautiful, new, trans finishes that show off its AAA flame maple veneer top perfectly. The Plustop Pro even features coil-taps, for ultimate tone versatility.
Sitting behind the maple top on a solid mahogany body, to delivers the classic tone and sustain that can only come from a "real" Les Paul. The body is wrapped in simple, 1-ply cream top binding for a great vintage look. The mahogany neck has a 24.75" scale with a 12" radius and a 1960s SlimTaper "D" profile glued-in neck. The rosewood fingerboard has the Les Paul classic pearloid trapezoid inlays, 22 medium-jumbo frets, a 1.68" nut, and 1-ply cream binding.
The new Pro-Bucker pickups give you that one-of-a kind Les Paul sound. With Alnico II magnets - as used in sought-after vintage PAF humbuckers - these pickups provide a rich, warm tone with a sparkling high end and a solid low end. The Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO features a Pro-Bucker-2 in the neck position and a Pro-Bucker-3 TM in the bridge position. Both are a little overwound, compared to the original PAFs, to give a hotter, higher gain tone. And both the neck and bridge pickups now also feature coil-tapping, controlled by push/pull volume controls. Epiphone uses only the highest quality parts to make these pickups, such as ABS plastic bobbins, 1010 Cold Rolled Steel pole shoes and pole screws, Alnico magnets and the finest magnet wire available.
