Lefty's need a great guitar, too.

The age-old adage says that left-handed people are the only ones in their right minds. There must be some leftys at Epiphone, because this left-handed Les Paul Standard rocks! With a mahogany and alder body, maple veneer over carved top, and set neck, you can wail away 'till the cows come home. The LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece provide more sustain and string changing easier. Two Alnico Classic humbucking pickups take the great sustain and tone of your Les Paul and fire it straight to your amp, and the world rejoices - or at least the neighborhood. Case sold separately.

  • Save Money--Don't Buy The Gibson, This One's The Same

    As reviewed by VintageGuitarGuy on 3/7/2011

    Got this Les Paul a few years back as a gift and have really gotten to know it. Here's the breakdown: Pickups: I'm more of a P-90 man, and the neck pickup sounds a little bland, so I usually crank the treble on my amp to compensate. The middle and bridge positions sound great, though. Hardware and Electronics: Tuners, nut, and stoptail are very good and feel solid. Two knobs were set so low that they dug into the body and two knobs were set 1/4" off the body, so this was a little concerning and needed to be adjusted (not a job for beginners). The tone controls (esp. the bridge) do almost nothing, so I would suggust replacements. The interior electronics and input jack are all very good quality. The plastics do feel cheap, but for this price... I'll take 'em. Neck and Body: The neck is a good standard Gibson-style neck. I like thin Epiphone (Casino-style) necks, but this one feels okay. I probably will never own another black guitar because this finish shows every fingerprint, nick, and grease mark and requires frequent cleaning. Neck joint is very solid. Overall Feel and Tone: Good guitar for classic rock and even jazz. Since its a Les Paul, it is heavy, but sometimes while playing live I don't even feel the guitar. Good Les Paul tone. The volume controls respond very well to your amp and vice versa. Bottom Line: If you are a beginning or advanced player, don't spend the unnessecary money and buy a Gibson. You are paying for the name. Epiphones are great guitars and anyone who says they aren't is a fool. They are built with the same standard and level of workmanship as American Gibsons. If you close your eyes, they sound the same. Please consider this guitar if you want a Les Paul.

  • Exactly the same as the right handed Epiphone Les Paul.

    As reviewed by Spencer Loftis on 12/29/2011

    I'll start by saying that I own two Epiphone Les Pauls. This one and a right handed standard. They're the same guitar. This one is just left handed. Both are excellent guitars with a great sound. There don't seem to be any quality control issues. I'd recommend this to any lefties out there.
