Overview

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard PlusTop Pro sets a new standard for guitars in its price range. Two Epiphone ProBucker humbucking pickups with coil-splitting deliver big slabs of the fat, warm tones, transcontinental sustain, and deep, soulful distortion that made this guitar famous. Crafted with a solid mahogany body and flamed maple carved top, a set mahogany neck, 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, cream body and fingerboard binding, and chrome hardware. The Tune-o-matic bridge and LockTone stopbar tailpiece add seemingly unending sustain and make string changes easier. Case sold separately.

So, I'm a novice guitar player who had been trying to learn on an acoustic I picked up a couple of years ago and only half practiced on from time to time. About 6 months ago, I got really serious about wanting to play, but have always wanted an electric!

I did a lot of research before going to Guitar Center and thought I wanted the Slash AFD Guitar package. In all fairness, it did not sound bad, but as I began to try more and more guitars my ear started to gravitate to a more expensive guitar. The tone just sounded better, the feel of the instrument just seemed more comfortable, etc.

Well, I had all but settled on an older Epiphone Les Paul Standard that I loved the sound of, unfortunately it felt like it weighed a good 25 pounds or so. I told the salesman I would take it if he had a new one in the back. He did not, but he said he had something better. That's when he showed me this Epiphone Les Paul Plus Top Pro. It was the same beautiful Desert Burst design as the heavier/older Epiphone, but it was far more vibrant and rich in its overall color and luster! Additionally, it was lighter and felt easier to work my fingers up and down the neck.

I instantly fell in love with it!

It was only about $115 more than the older Epiphone I initially wanted and it plays like a dream!

If you are looking for a solid guitar with a beautiful sound, look and feel, look no further, this is the instrument for you.

Trust me!

I find the finish on the guitar flawless, it is absolutely beautiful. The neck is wonderful and action was great right off the rack. My issue is that the pickups sound terrible. They are weak and do not produce that creamy lead tone I was looking for and overall just sound cheap. I am an Ace Frehely fan and will replacing the pickups with dimarzio super distortions. Overall it's a beautiful instrument but I hate the pick ups. I also find that the G-string is difficult to keep in tune. I have read other reviews where people experienced the same issue, but replaced the cheap nut and had no other issues.

      Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard PlusTop Pro Electric Guitar:

      This guitar will get compared with the PRS SE 245 most often. In my opinion this guitar flat out plays better than a 245. I had a 245, and while it was pretty, barre chords never rang as clear as they do on my plus top pro. I can't emphasize how much easier this guitar is to play. I doesn't fight you. The 24.75 length isn't as cramped either and the slim taper D neck is noticeably thinner.
      The coil splitting doesn't sound exactly like a Fender, but it is another sound that you can get out of this guitar which gives it some versatility.

        Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard PlusTop Pro Electric Guitar:

        Well I'm kinda a newb, I played my acoustic for a couple years until the dog knocked it off the stand and broke off a tuner, yes I still have the dog, A good friend of mine works at GC he was always telling me about what was on sale, last week he was telling me about the entry level Epiphone Les Paul's that were on sale, so I decided to drive over and have a look see.
        They were nice and I'm sure they play as good as they look. But then my eyes fell upon a cherry plus top standard pro, it has everything, I wanted, probucker humbuckers, coil splitting fit and finish is gorgeous, I chose that one as mine, being my first electric guitar I also bought an amp, a cord, a tuner and a strap, and a Epiphone Les Paul hard case, the whole nine yards.
        I'm 62 and this is a guitar I can relearn on and will do all the styles that I have yet to learn.
        OH and the sound is fantastic, I'm playing the Eagles stuff and it sounds just like the album.
        If I had bought the entry level Les Paul I feel as though in a short time I would have needed to upgrade to a better guitar, but with the plus top standard pro I don't ever see having to upgrade
        And the staff went above and beyond to assist me....
        Thank you Gibson/Epiphone

          Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard PlusTop Pro Electric Guitar:

          I purchased this a few months ago, because I was getting tired of my previous instrument, and needed a new look. I played some of the lower-end Gibson LPs, but the aesthetic on them was not to my taste. This, on the other hand, is a beautiful guitar. Little to no flaw in the finish. Let's face it, looks matter with guitar.
          Playing wise, this guitar did not disappoint. I came in skeptical of Epiphone's quality, but I was wrong in a great way. Feels nice, came set up decently well (some fret buzz on low E string, intonation wasn't great.) My only gripe with this guitar is the pickups. They sound fine at low volume, but the covers and wax potting was lazily done. At higher volume and gain, the covers become very microphonic and screech all over the place. Unacceptable at a gig. Had to remove covers. Other than that, this is one of the best guitars out there at this price range.

            The best crafted newer epiphone I have played recently. I do not own this but have played 2 on 2 separate occasions both I noticed "crafted in indonesia" WHAT? I owned a Squire Vintage Modified that was beautiful beyond expectations and this is the same.
            The knobs are smooth and don't feel cheap and the flame top is beautiful.

            Would def recommmend this guitar

            Good, well built guitar. Great finish good sounding pickups. This is my opinion only and I'm sure it depends on the player but I've found its not great for punk/metal, my Ibanez RG is much better for that. The coil split is a nice feature too. I'm certainly happy with my purchase as the guitar performs as advertised but I was hoping I'd love it more than I do. The Low E and A string buzz like crazy even after intonation set up.

            Great Les Pual

            By John

            from Oregon

            Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard PlusTop Pro Electric Guitar:

            I don't know if this guitar needs another great review, but here goes. This is my 3rd Epi LP. I have a Tribute plus and a Black beauty. This guitar is another great LP. the finish, hardware and construction are great. Plays well. I was thinking that I may change the pickups for some Gibsons, but I honestly can't hear any difference between the three different pickups. This guitar has probuckers. the tribute has Gibson USA 57 classics and the BB has Epi alnico classics. They all sound very good. The probuckers are supposed to be a little hotter. Maybe someone with a better ear can, but I can't.

            If you do not care about the name on the head stock I totally recommend this tone full beauty.The pickups and finish are what sold me. Setup was easy for me. I dress the frets. Change strings. Loosen the trust rode for more relief. Adjust bridge hight and intonation. Adjust pickup hight for even out put volume. But would recommend to have a professional do it if your not in the know how. I have been playing for 30yrs and I have to say epiphone knock it out the park with the probuckers . They sound great through my collection of fender blackface and silverface amps. The probuckers let me switch between tele's and les paul with out having to change EQ. That is important when switching guitars on stage. I could have bought a Gibson for $1200+ and would end up with a resale value of $800. Or buy the Epiphone with resale value around $350-400.
