The Epiphone LP-Express electric guitar captures the look, sound, and feel, of their famous Les Paul guitars but in a slightly smaller package that is perfect for travel use, for guitarists more comfortable on a small guitar, even younger players. The neck has the same basic dimensions as a full-size guitar but the scale length is only 22" as compared to 24-3/4" on a full-size Les Paul. The result is an incredibly comfortable electric guitar that maintains good string tension when tuned to standard E.
Great Design Features
While the Epiphone LP-Express is a real Les Paul, it incorporates some unique design features to ensure that the guitar performs well. First, while the body is still mahogany, the neck on the Express is hard maple as opposed to the traditional mahogany neck. This gives the guitar a little more high-end bite or brighter tone which effectively offsets the slightly looser string tension due to the shorter scale length. Additionally, the combination of the fully-adjustable fixed bridge with a string-through body design fits well on the smaller size body while adding sustain and making string changes a breeze. Finally, the neck is bolted in place securely using 4 recessed bolts set into a tapered heel making upper fret access easier and very comfortable.
With the slightly looser string tension, it's even more important to have great tuners. Epiphone designed the Les Paul Express guitar with premium, 14:1 ratio die-cast tuners to give you excellent tuning accuracy and stability. As a bonus, a custom Express-sized padded gig bag is included with every guitar making it the perfect travel guitar.
Peace of Mind!
As with all Epiphone's, the Les Paul Express guitar includes Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Warranty and is backed by their famous 24/7/365 Customer Service.

Over 45 years of playing, I have owned at least 6 les pauls, both gibson and epiphone. Due to physical issues, I can no longer play a guitar that is heavy. I still gig 3-4 nights a week, and my main guitars are this and a squier mini. I feel just as confident in taking this on stage as any of the other LP's: it sounds as good, plays as good, and is very comfortable because of the small size and weight. Take a little time to set it up properly, and put 11's on it. You will find it will do anything the full size versions can do for a fraction of the price. This is one of the best values out there.
I dont own this amp but i have played my friends i loved it it sound great and feels great the price is amazing. I tried this amp with a line 6 spider III 15wt it made it sound even better i highly recommend it but since they dont sell spider III anymore you should get the spiderIV i am getting it for christmas i saw it in my moms closet i will write a reveiw on that soon
This guitar is not a full size guitar!!! It try's its best to make it sound like its not a toy but deep down thats what this is. I got this guitar for my first guitar as a gift on christmas of 2011. Ive never played until i bought this but i already knew basic's because guitar is a huge part in my family and i know how they should sound. I figured buying a smaller guitar was best just in case i didnt like guitar so i wouldnt spend to much. Here's the thing even if you use this logic i forgot about one thing a cheap guitar is going to need ALOT of fixing i spent well over 200 dollars fixing this guitar's problems it would have been better to have just bought a full sized guitar. Alright now for the problems... Where do i start... The guitar doesnt hold tuning very well. Alot of buzzing in every string. Drop D is terrible. And the worst part about it all is that the bridge uses what looks to be plastic or poor metal. Dont buy this guitar get a Studio Les Paul it cost more but you wont regret it i promise. Now here is the thing that is good about this guitar. IF you have enough money to replace these problems its an ok guitar. Its small and easy to take around places.
