Epiphone Les Paul Standard
The Epiphone Les Paul Standard is a nice take on the classic LP guitar, under the Epiphone name and aimed at those who might not be able to afford a Gibson Les Paul. It’s got all of the same features and make up that you’ll find on a Gibson Les Paul Standard, but it’s made of lesser parts and I don’t believe it’s made in America. The guitar has dual humbucker pick ups, each with their own independent volume and tone controls and a three way selector switch for choosing between the pick ups or blending the two of them together. This is a pretty standard electric guitar configuration, which the Les Paul has impacted no doubt. I don’t really know what kinds of woods this guitar is made out of, but it doesn’t feel incredibly cheap unless you compare it directly to a Gibson LP.


UTILIZATION

Playing the Epiphone Les Paul Standard is no trouble at all. The neck is pretty round as you’ll find with most Les Pauls, although I can’t say that this one feels as fluid as a Gibson Les Paul in my opinion. Controlling your sound with the pick ups is really easy, as anyone who has ever had an electric guitar should be able to use this no problem. I don’t think that a manual is necessary for this guitar, although I haven’t seen one myself.



SOUNDS

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard absolutely has the sound of a true Les Paul. I haven’t had a chance to shoot out this guitar and a Gibson Les Paul, as it’s been a while since I’ve played this guitar. A friend of mine that I grew up playing up with has this guitar, so it was always around and I was always playing it, but never really did any recording with it. It’s certainly going to give you that creamy Les Paul sound, which anyone who has ever used one before will tell you works incredibly well for both rhythm and lead parts. I’d be curious to see how the sound of this stacked up against a Gibson Les Paul Standard, but from what I can tell it’s going to be closer than you think.


OVERALL OPINION

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard is a great way for beginning and intermediate guitar players to get a great axe at a great price. If you’ve only been playing a short while and are looking for a guitar to bring you up a notch without having to spend the money it would take to get a full on Gibson, the Epiphone Les Paul Standard is the perfect guitar. While some will say that this is cheaply made and all that, which I guess it is compared to the Gibson version, this is no doubt a bona fide electric guitar.

Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Epiphone is Gibsons lower price line of guitar. They have pretty much the same specs as the Gibson models. The electronics are not as good but they are made from the species of wood but the wood may not be the best quality. The Les Paul standard guitar was introduced in 1958. They came with the first PAF pickups and when people talk about the Gibson tone they are talking about these. They have the standard Les Paul setup with mahogany body with a maple top and a mahogany neck with a 22 fret rosewood fretboard. Two humbucking Alnico Classic pickups with dual volume and tone controls with a 3 way toggle switch pickup selector. The up position on the switch selects the neck pickup. The middle position on the pickup selector selects both pickups. And the down position on the pickup selector selects the bridge pickup. It has a tune-o-matic bridge and stop tail piece.

UTILIZATION

The Epiphone Les Paul standard has all of the same advantages and disadvantages in playability that every Les Paul has. If you are use to modern guitars with thin necks the Les Paul neck will be very big for you. Because of the set neck design there is a large neck tenon and joint. This can make the upper frets hard for some people to reach because the body essentially joins the neck at the 17th fret. After the 17th fret you are reaching around the body to get to the frets. The tuning stability is good because there is no tremolo. The quality of hardware Epiphone uses is not that great. I have had problems with the input jack unscrewing itself and things like that.

SOUNDS

The pickups Epiphone uses are not that great. They are pretty muddy and dead. You do not get much attack with these pickups. Since these pickups do not have much definition the neck position can get really muddy. These guitars are chambered like the Gibson Les Paul standard guitars. This takes away some of the thickness from the tone. With a high gain amp the sound might get muddy due to the lack of definition. With some types of music these pickups are great. If you want a bluesy sound these pickups will do really good and you will be able to get a smooth tone out of them. With a pickup swap this guitar can sound great so I would recommend to anyone who has one of these Epiphones to try it out with some after market pickups.

OVERALL OPINION

If you are looking for a cheap Gibson Les Paul alternative there are better guitars out there. Epiphone makes the only official Les Paul copies but there are some other copies that are of a lot better quality. I would recommend looking at an Agile Les Paul copy. You can get a guitar half the price of the Epiphone but with better quality, and for the price you pay for this Epiphone you can get an Agile with an ebony fretboard and Gibson quality hardware.

La opinión de Steve_Boudreaux (content in English)"Replace The Pickups, And This Guitar Is As Good As A Les Paul Gets- Bar NONE"

Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Don't believe those who say the Epiphone Les Paul is not top-notch, or nearly so- the only thing that disappoints are the pickups, and even they are decent. I upgraded the pups to Gibson Burstbucker Pro's- nothing else was needed. I upgraded the tuners, but only because I had a set of Gibson bell-knob tuners that looked cooler- the original Grover tuners (branded, not copies) were as good as the ones I put on. I decided to wait to see how the pots, switch, caps and wiring, and the nut, performed, and now, three years later, with considerable play, they are all working just fine.

Don't let anyone tell you Agile, SX, or anybody else's LP is better- it just is not so. If these were not made in Indonesia, they would be perfect.

UTILIZATION

Exact copy of the Gibson Les Paul in body and neck shape- easy to play, if a bit heavy.

SOUNDS

Works fine with any amp I have played it with.

OVERALL OPINION

Black, ivory and chrome color scheme avoids glitch and flash. This is what a Les Paul should look like.

Epiphone Les Paul Standard
The Epi standard is made in Korea. The 2 vol and 2 tone controls allow for easy tone variation at your fingertips.

Mahogany body with a thick maple cap
thick mahogany neck
rosewood board with 22 meduim jumbo frets
stoptail/tune-o-matic bridge

UTILIZATION

I'm more of a strat guy, so LP's have never had the best upper fret acess for me. The coupling of a beefy neck defineily hinders speed on an LP neck, but that doesn't mean it can't be done, just look at John Sykes!

The lack of comfort cuts might bother players more comfortable with strats, but that's also part of an LP's charm, that large mass of wood.

Although I've played many LP's that didn't sound or play that great, one thing that you can be sure of is that an LP will sound big, and have a low mid emphasis, just because of the wood mass and body/neck construction.

My Epi is about 9 lbs. Pretty hefty!

SOUNDS

I go for a Marshally, Modded Plexi type tone with most of my guitars, but I find that my Epi performs better under lower gain settings, where the fat LP tone can take over.

The pickups are OK. Nothing spectacular about them, but at the same time, they aren't horrible. The bridge delivers on 70s hard rock ala Thin lizzy, but it get's muddy under high gain applications. The neck is a bit better for that, but it still tends to have too much lows. Cleans are quite warm, if a bit characterless, and safe.



OVERALL OPINION

An Epi LP is a good introduction to Les Pauls, if you're on a budget. With a good setup, and new pickups, you can definetly find keepers, unfortuantely mine was not one of them. One of the best LP's I've ever played was a Zakk Wyled sig, though, so it can be done at a lower price point.
