OVERVIEW

In pairing a lightweight mahogany body with a spanky maple top, the Epiphone Les Paul Studio builds on the same DNA as its more-expensive cousins. This no-frills musician's tool is equipped for great performance and all the right visual beats. Its '60s-profile SlimTaper "D" mahogany neck and trapezoid-inlaid pau ferro fingerboard afford great playability and price-defying luxury. The Les Paul Studio features Alnico Classic and Classic Plus humbucking pickups — enhanced by push-pull volume pots for coil splitting — to yield rich, no-compromise tone. High-quality tuners and a LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge pour rock-solid intonation into every soulful strum and sultry melody you unearth in this all-occasions axe. Black Speed Knobs give you quick access to those coveted Les Paul tones.

Select woods exhibit classic tone

The Epiphone Les Paul Studio's classic tonewoods present a combination of clarity, definition, and fullness.

Whether you're after bell-like cleans or fire-breathing gains, you'll love the full-range sound, tonality, and playability you get in the Epiphone Les Paul Studio.
