Based on the look of a late ‘50s Les Paul Standard with open-coil zebra style pickups, the Les Paul Classic boasts retro flair in the bucketloads. Epiphone’s Inspired by Gibson collection takes iconic features and advanced construction techniques and applies them to genuinely accessible instruments.
Incredibly accurate to vintage design, the Classic consists of a trusty mahogany body and neck combination with a maple cap to lay down the sleek gloss finish. Any guitarist’s dream.
The neck is shaped into a Gibson original Slim Taper – styled after the late ‘50s performance update and known for its flatter pattern. Paired with the 12” fingerboard radius and medium jumbo frets, the Classic feels like a true original. Hardware specs include a LockTone ABR bridge and Grover 18:1 ratio tuners for admirable stability.
Alnico Classic PRO humbuckers are inspired by legendary PAF pickups, characterised by their low output and sweet sustain. Open coil pickup styles tend to sound hotter than covered counterparts and add more heat, attack and directness to any tone.
