But you can recreate them. Epiphone have partnered up with the Gibson Custom Shop to deliver a Les Paul that’s every bit as great as the 59’ original. From its iconic body shape to its hand-rolled neck profile, each element is period specific, giving you the exact feel and tone of the rare vintage classic. Discover huge sustain from a solid mahogany construction. Chosen for its sweet sound, the body minimises cross-talk between the strings, allowing for more clarity, even when driven.
Some genres never go out of style. With the ’59 Les Paul Standard, you can recapture the magic. Whether you love hard rock, swampy blues, or anything in between, two Burstbucker pickups bring chunky, biting tone to your favourite heavy licks. This is classic 50’s sound with more to offer. The Switchcraft selector offers improved versatility, allowing you to go from deep, thumping timbre to distinct, clear attack at the flick of a switch. Thanks to Mallory capacitors and CTS pots, you get premium tone in every performance.
Without ever straining your hands. The Les Paul Standard is sculpted for comfort. From top to bottom, the rounded ‘C’ shape helps you play chord shapes and complex solos - completely pain free. A choice cut of Indian Laurel gives character to your strings, improving sustain and resonance. So when you’re playing with unparalleled tone, you’ll never have to stop for a break.
