The Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Standard Lite gives you authentic LP style and performance in an affordable, lightweight package. Featuring a chambered body and boasting a set of Epiphone's versatile Alnico Classic humbuckers, the Les Paul Standard Lite would serve as an excellent live performance workhorse. Finished in a gorgeous Heritage Cherry Sunburst colour and featuring time-honoured Nickel hardware - the Les Paul Standard Lite certainly looks the part too!
The legendary Les Paul formula remains intact with the Standard Lite, with its signature all-Mahogany construction. Giving the instrument its rich, signature sound; the Standard Lite's weight-relieved chambered body not only makes the guitar lighter and more comfortable to play onstage, but also enhances resonance for an airier sound with a broader frequency response.
A glued-in, set neck construction ensures brilliant sustain, and the Standard Lite's neck is carved to the ever-popular "SlimTaper" D-shaped profile that modern players simply love. Adorned with a stunning Pau Ferro fingerboard, this material adds plenty of warmth to the guitar's overall tonality and feels great under the fingers.
Electronics & Hardware
The Limited Edition Les Paul Standard Lite is powered by two of Epiphone's critically-acclaimed Alnico Classic humbuckers. Made with Alnico-V magnets, these models provide a slightly higher output than vintage pickups, with livelier mids and highs. The bridge humbucker is a Classic Plus, which has a hotter sound that is able to handle large amount of gain without breaking a sweat!
Hardware appointments on the Les Paul Standard Lite are also top-notch. With a non-rotating, heavy-duty output jack; this thoughtful addition ensures firm contact between your instrument cable and the guitar's electronics for reliable operation. The classic "LockTone" tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece combination guarantees sublime intonation, while the Grover tuners enable precise tuning with their 18:1 ratio.
