Overview

The Epiphone Nightfall electric guitar features a smooth, satin-finish hard maple neck with Epiphone's thin SpeedTaper "D" profile. The hard maple neck is fitted with a premium ebony fingerboard for smooth, long-lasting performance, while providing more clarity and pop than a weasel in HD.

The sturdy Epiphone Nightfall guitar neck makes it the perfect companion for the black, double-locking Floyd Rose® Special tremolo. The body is routed out beneath the tremolo, allowing you to raise the pitch up to 2-1/2 steps or dive-bomb until your strings go slack. It's combined with an R4 locking nut for improved tuning stability.

With the raging duo of an EMG-HZ-4A in the bridge and an HZ-4 in the neck, your solos will melt faces and your rhythms will be as chunky as homemade peanut butter. The passive pickups on the Epiphone Les Paul Nightfall do an incredible job of emulating their active counterparts”the EMG-81 and 85”yet require no batteries, so you'll never have to worry about showing up to a gig with dead pups. Each of these nearly silent 'buckers is wired to allow coil-splitting via push/pull potentiometers on both volume controls. This gives you a total of 8 tones when combined with the 3-way toggle”from shrieking, eyebrow-piercing freq-outs to chest-caving bass blasts.

Other features on the Epiphone Les Paul guitar include Grover machine heads, abalone inlay on the 12th fret, and Epiphone's own StrapLocks.

This is a beast

By The Crowing

from Sacramento, CA

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Nightfall Electric Guitar:

This may look like a Les Paul, but it sounds like a monster. The EMGs give it a very sharp and heavy bite. I play everything from Led Zeppelin to Metallica, and it does the job fine. Coil tapping is a nice touch, but I don't think I'll use it that often. The double locking tremolo works very well when dive-bombing or raising the pitch. It does not fall out of tune. The included strap locks are very secure. I like the satin finish on the neck. It's way faster than anything I've played. And the all-black finish is very menacing. A nice touch... I do have a few gripes. The screws on the locking nut are made of somewhat soft metal, making it very easy to strip out the heads. Also, I think my pick-up selection switch was some how wired backwards (up is bridge, down is neck). I don't mind this, but it's not the way it was supposed to be made. All in all this is a very good guitar. It has high-end features at a relatively low price. You can bet that I'll be playing this for a long time. If you're looking for an affordable hard rock/metal guitar, buy this. You won't regret it.

Just Amazing

By Israel

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Nightfall Electric Guitar:

This is an amazing guitar, its the first epiphone les paul that i̴��ve ever seen that has an amazing floyd rose tremolo and also a pair of emg pickups that makes it rock. It also has coil tapping in both pickups that makes a great variety of tones in just one guitar. It̴��s like the amazing gibson axcess , at a cheap price, it just needs another two frets to be the perfect guitar.

Amazing

By Stephen

from Sacramento CA

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Nightfall Electric Guitar:

I was in Guitar Center the other day looking at guitars. My current rock/metal guitar is a black Epiphone G-310, which is a great guitar, but also more of an entry level and so I'm looking to upgrade. I had seen on the Gibson website a Les Paul Pro/FX with a Floyd Rose, and thought that would be a nice guitar. However, in Guitar Center I immediately noticed this guitar with its killer looks. It's all black finish gives it a sophisticated look. The neck feels really smooth and fast. After a quick tuning, i plugged it into a Marshall 30W MGFX amp and was blown away. The pickups really do sound like 81/85s. The coil tapping is an added bonus, in case you weren't sold already. The floyd isn't original, it's some new special model, but seems incredibly sturdy. Overall, I was really impressed with this guitar and think its actually superior to the Pro/FX for less $$$. I am definitely saving up for this.

Best Les Paul So Far !

By Eric Hill

from davie , fl

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Nightfall Electric Guitar:

the world has waited for a les paul with a floyd rose! Plays like a fast Ibanez but its a les paul. with coil splitting on each pickup and a maple neck u can even sound like a strat! the EMG's are ok, and its definatiy a metal guitar! Very low action on the neck, nice set from factory, exept it was tuned to Eb. hassel to tune the FR , but worth the time in the end.

The Best Guitar I Have Ever Owned

By Jacob

from Dumas,Texas

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Nightfall Electric Guitar:

I'm a heavy metal player, and the licks and riffs that you can play with this guitar are amazing. It has great sound quality and a beautiful appearance. Not to mention that fact that Epiphone is a brand that you can trust. The EMG's on the guitar are a really nice touch, along with the coil tapping. My only concern would be tuning. I've had my share of problems with keeping the guitar tuned over a small period of time. Occasionally, turning the knobs on the headstock doesn't even change the pitch at all, it just stays the same. But the quality that you get from such a low priced guitar makes it all worth while. I've had this guitar for about four months. I own five other guitars, and this one is without a doubt the best one I've ever had.

Yep... she's a go-er.

By Hue

from New Haven, MI

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Nightfall Electric Guitar:

I was originally shopping for a strat-sounding guitar... after trying a few strats, I started to include guitars that had split-coil pups in my search. This guitar had all the snap and pop of a strat, but in an LP format. I was impressed. The original factory set up was 'close', but it took a bit of adjusting here and there to get her where she needs to be. That done, this guitar is very versitile, and plays easily. The trem stays in tune very well, and the pups have a useable tone to them. The guitar looks pretty-killer, too. It really could be, "none more" black. = )

The Nightfall Les Paul is AMAZING!!!

By Eli Mullins

from Grasonville, MD

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Nightfall Electric Guitar:

I have been playing guitar for 17 years now and this guitar is by far the best guitar I have ever played. Everything from the Floyd Rose bridge to the play action on the neck is perfect. You won't need to look at higher priced guitars if you want superior sound and quality.

Fantastic Les Paul

By John Marzich

from arroyo grande, ca

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Nightfall Electric Guitar:

This is as good as any other out there. The pickups to me are better than the emg active for more tones and plenty of drive. The tapped ability is great and like any tapped pickup there is noise since you loose the ground cancellation of humbuckers. The neck is just incredible and longer compared to my gibson sg. The headstock is so unique also. The sustain is as long as you want and not that big and heavy compared to other traditional lesl pauls own. The paint is perfect. The quality just shoes all over the thing. The tremelo stays in tune and have not even locked the nut for it. The frets are near perfect finished wise not sharp. No way is this anything but a great deal and epiphone shows it as "OUT of Production" so if your thinking of it ....get going. A+++++++++
