Les Paul Features in an Economical Package.
Unlike cheaper designs, all Epiphones feature a 14-degree headstock that gives you more pressure at the nut and so you get more sustain with less tuning hang-ups caused by “string-tree” gadgets.
Alnico V Humbucker pickups and the industry-standard Tune-O-Matic bridge.
Rosewood fretboard with dot inlays.
Epiphone utilizes a double vacuum waxing process that ensures optimum performance. The pickup is first placed in the specialized wax vacuuming system before the cover is put in place to ensure that the wax fully penetrates to the very center of the pickup and solidifies all parts. After the cover is placed on, it is again given a second vacuum wax bath until the unit is completely saturated with wax.
To increase reliability and ensure consistent performance, Epiphone’s proprietary output jacks feature an improved contact shape and heavy-duty spring steel.
All Epiphones feature our all-metal, USA designed switches for reliable contact and longer life.
Fully adjustable, the tunomatic remains a classic after over 50 years. Unlike guitars fitted with tremolos, there are no tuning or re-stringing difficulties. Plus, tone and sustain are improved because all string vibrations are transferred directly to the guitar.
Epiphone is passionate about performance. That’s why their instruments use one-inch diameter potentiometers for better “throw,” longer life and reliable service.
For unequalled reliability as well as ease of service, Epiphone wiring harnesses feature quick-connectors.
