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.

This is my first online ordering experience with a guitar but I am so happy with it. I opened the box and was blown away with the beauty and craftsmanship of this guitar. Online pictures do not do it justice.
I picked the guitar up, tuned it, plugged it into a small peavey practice amp and started playing. The sounds were awesome and the guitar felt amazing and there was no fret buzz. The Humbucker/Single Coil pickup controls are great for a variety of sounds.
I am extremely happy with this purchase. I just don't want to set this thing down. It is amazing. I used to have a Gibson Les Paul Studio and this guitar is just as good or better. I will be playing guitar a lot more now.
The only problem with the online ordering is the 3 or 4 days I had to wait. It was killing me. I was like a kid waiting for Christmas morning.
I got it and now I am a Very Happy Customer...and it was worth the wait.

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:

    Loved this guitar right out of the box. I got the translucent blue and looked incredible. I've been playing guitar for about the past 6-7 years but the only electric I ever had was a squire stratocaster, so I was looking for that next step up to keep me going, and finally this Christmas had the time and money to invest in a new electric. I'm not extremely experienced or anything, but this guitar had the sound and feel I was looking for. Definitely a drastic change from the non-stop humming pickups on the squire. Would definitely recommend.

      Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard PlusTop Pro Electric Guitar:

      This is an awesome guitar. It is not quite a Gibson but the price is four times less also.
      The pickups sound great and the coil tapping gives a huge variety of tones. The appearance is classic and beautiful. I have the cherry sunburst and could not be happier. The flamed maple top is gorgeous. The Grover tuners work perfectly.
      My friend has a genuine Gibson LP a standard and is impressed that mine sounds comparable and cost less. I visit the Guitar Center frequently "just looking" and am yet to find anything that sounds or plays better than this.

        Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard PlusTop Pro Electric Guitar:

        This is not my 1st attempt of getting a decent Epi Les Paul, and it looks this time I got lucky. Previous guitars in a slightly lower price range had intonation problems, fret buzz, and in one instance, loud pickup hum.

        This guitar is aesthetically beautiful and sounds very nice. After normal adjustments of the action on the nut and the bridge and setting everything to the spec, the guitar's intonation is nearly perfect and I have no fret buzz whatsoever on any string and any fret. I have to mention that there is some num when I use coil splitting, that depends on my position in the house and guitar orientation. My understanding is that this is common for single-soil of split pickups. In the regular "humbucking" mode there is no hum to talk about.

        The neck is slim - much slimmer than the one on Les Paul Traditional Pro. This is a taste preference, but for me this is a big advantage as I have smaller hands.

        There is one very minor cosmetic oversight in this guitar: my the guitar is wine red with ivory-colored outlines, but the nut itself is just white and does not match the tone of the outlines.

        And finally, as far as craftmanship goes, there is one minor issue I have to mention: the strap button on the bottom of the guitar was screwed on at an angle. It became very apparent when I replaced it with a schaller strap lock: the crew did not go into the guitar's body at the right angle. I hade to fill the existing hole with a chip of wood and drill a tiny new hole straight.

        Despite the two minor imperfections, I definitely recommend this guitar.

          Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard PlusTop Pro Electric Guitar:

          Overall this has been a great intermediate guitar for me. Love the way it looks and presents. Plays very well in it's own right. I also own a Gibson LP Standard and it does highlight a few shortcomings of the Epi. The pots are a little bit odd on the Epi in that it's difficult to dial in a specific volume when you're on a distorted channel - it may just be my guitar though. In addition, the sustain isn't quite as good but hey, for the price, it's a great value. I may change out a few of the electronics and see how it plays. Overall though, a solid playing guitar and great looker.

          The weight is a factor, if you plan on standing for a period of time. The control knobs should have been better.

            This guitar is a Les Paul all the way around for less money. I played Gibsons and the Epi is right there with it for a lot less money. It has the look, feel, and sound. If you want to get critical change out the pups other than that its the real deal.

                It's my dream guitar. I don't feel the need to pay twice or thrice the price to duplicate the same quality found in "a more famous name" guitar. The quality of construction and the quality of components are not "second place".

                If bragging rights is the most important issue, not genuine product quality, then purchase the higher end
                instrument.
