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 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:

      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.

            Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard PlusTop Pro Electric Guitar:

            I've played for a little over 2 years now, and I bought this guitar a little under a year ago. I've personally experienced no problems with this guitar, and have used it in all gigging I've done, such as my high school's jazz ensemble concerts and local venue concerts. The quality is amazing for the price, and the glossed neck feels amazing while playing. I can confidently say that this is Epiphone's finest, and it works for many genres of music, from jazz, all the way to hard rock. The tone is amazing for the price! While there may be a very occasional fret buzz (very seldom), this is easily overlooked by everything else.

              Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Standard PlusTop Pro Electric Guitar:

              Used to be a vintage guitar snob. Was given this guitar as a surprise birthday gift from my son. Initially disappointed that it was an import and a blue guitar. I have been humbled by the craftsmanship and playability of this guitar. People compliment the appearance of the figured maple plus top under the translucent blue finish. It plays as nice as my '56 LP Custom! Once you get past the headstock snobbery you're appreciating the tone and excellent sustain of this guitar. It is not a Gibson! Pickups are "thinner" than humbuckers so you roll off the treble pot more. But mid-range and jazz sound is excellent and snarl from the treble pickup is fine. Remember, it is not a Gibson! I'm loving this guitar just fine.

                I've been playing for over thirty years. In the mid 80's I paid mucho dinero for a Gibson Les Paul Studio. I never got the hang of laying electric and reverted back to acoustic guitars. When we practice I usually use an Alvarez electric acoustic on the Fender Acoustic amp. All I need. Well, I won a Epi LP Standard Plus Top Pro and was just going to sell it and buy other equipment, however, my guitar buddy (has one of everything) that usually plays a vintage Gibson Les Paul told me I'd be crazy. He played with it a few minutes and his eyes lit up...so, the next day I used it during practice (through the Fender Acoustic amp-all I had available) and with a 'touch of chorus' that guitar amazed me. When I started pulling knobs he made a comment that it is the higher end Epi LP since it has the pull knobs to split the coils. After three hours of experimenting I changed my mind and decided to keep her. I'm anxious to do some recording to see if it sounds as good as I think it does...
