Epiphone Les Paul Standard 50s Electric Guitar in Metallic Gold
DescriptionEpiphone Les Paul Standard 50s Electric Guitar in Metallic Gold
A Classic, Reborn
Epiphone’s new Inspired by Gibson Collection proudly presents the Les Paul Standard 50s! This guitar lovingly recreates the feel and tone of 1950s era Les Pauls. Epiphone’s long friendship with Mr. Les Paul began in 1940 when Les built one of the world’s first solid-body electric guitars while working nights at the original Epiphone factory in Manhattan. Les’ first solid-body guitar, nicknamed “the Log”, would go on to inspire the Les Paul Standard, what many consider the greatest electric guitar ever made. The guitar is crafted with a Mahogany body, Maple cap (AAA veneer on figured tops), bound 50s shaped Mahogany neck with long neck tenon, Indian Laurel fingerboard with classic trapezoid inlay, Epiphone's new Vintage-Deluxe tuners, a pair of critically acclaimed Epiphone ProBucker™ humbuckers, and gold Top Hat knobs with dial pointers. Available in Metallic Gold, Vintage Sunburst, and Heritage Cherry Sunburst full-gloss finishes. This Epiphone Inspired by Gibson Original model also has the Kalamazoo headstock, rolled neck for a comfortable feel, GraphTech® NuBone™ nut, era-appropriate wiring, and CTS pots. Optional hardshell or EpiLite Case is available.
ProBucker™ humbucker Pickups - The classic "P.A.F" sound is closer than you think
Epiphone's ProBucker™ humbucker has quietly become one of the most talked about pickups in the industry. It has fooled experts, vintage purists, and even luthiers who have worked with the best vintage examples from the late 50s and early 60s. Epiphone ProBucker™ humbuckers are the real deal--made with 18% Nickel Silver unit bases and covers, the same alloy used by Gibson at the Kalamazoo factory when the humbucker was first invented. The use of Nickel Silver reduces the occurrence of eddy currents due to low conductivity and provides a more transparent and crisp output. The size and shape of the bobbins also has a great impact on tonal response. And the bobbins used on ProBucker™ pickups duplicate the size and shape of the gold standard in the industry, Gibson humbuckers. Epiphone ProBucker™ pickups also feature sand cast Alnico II magnets, high quality 4 conductor lead wire, and are vacuum wax potted to eliminate microphonics.
