Overview

Epiphone's history and association with Les Paul dates way back to the days when Les, working at the Epiphone factory on 14th St. in New York, created the world's first electric guitar. Over the years, Les continued to work closely with Epiphone by reviewing new product ideas and offering suggestions. The Epiphone Les Paul Quilt Top PRO electric guitar combines the best of Les Paul's original design with new features that set this Epiphone guitar apart. Case sold separately.

Professional Electronics
The Les Paul Quilt Top PRO uses Epiphone's 4-wire, nickel/silver base humbuckers with newly tooled, USA-style bobbins. In the neck position is Epiphone's chrome-covered ProBucker 2 with warm, thick vintage tone. It's uniquely paired with a chrome-covered ProBucker 3 humbucker, an inspired by version of Gibson's BurstBucker 3, that features unevenly wound coils and Alnico-II magnets that replicate that "Patent Applied for" airy tone. To top it all off, both volume controls feature push/pull potentiometers allowing you to coil-split each pickup for single-coil sounds. Combined with the 3-way toggle, you get 6 unique sounds from one great Les Paul guitar.

Premium tone woods
The Epiphone Les Paul Quilt Top PRO guitar has a solid mahogany back with a stunning, carved quilted top. Its solid mahogany neck is hand-fitted and glued into the body for excellent neck-to-body contact and resonates almost like one continuous piece of wood.

Loaded with add-ons
Other features on the Epiphone Les Paul included quality Grover tuners, a traditional cream-colored pickguard, and LockTone tune-o-matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece.

Features
  • Mahogany body
  • Carved quilted maple top
  • 24.75" Scale set-in mahogany neck
  • Rosewood fretboard
  • 22 Medium jumbo frets
  • ProBucker 2 humbucking neck pickup with coil-split

I bought the translucent blue version of this it is amazing! So much cooler than flametop! If you are wondering what the difference between this (a PRO) and just a Standard, it means that you can pull the volume knobs up to turn the pickup the knob you pulled up represents to a single-coil instead of a humbucker. I love it! It makes the guitar so much more versatile. Almost never comes out of tune, looks really shiny, don't have to polish it very often. Overall a great guitar. Best in its class

I received this guitar yesterday after having to order it in. I don't have much to say just yet except when I opened the case I was surprised to see a guitar that didn't look like the picture. I'm not sure of the correct term but the guitar above has tiger stripes which is not what I unboxed. The "quilt top" has a cloudy finish on the main body. Whether this looks better or not is up to the beholder but I have to say I was disappointed when I opened it up. It's still a beautiful guitar but I'm not sure what my next steps are just yet. I got what was advertised but I feel I was mislead by an inconsistent photo.

        Bought this as my "step-up" from entry level LP and what a huge difference there is! Sound quality, feel, ease of playing, not to mention the beautiful quilt top, all make me wish I hadn't waited so long to upgrade!

          Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Quilt Top PRO Electric Guitar:

          I was looking for my first les paul type guitar. I am usually a fender guy, however, this Les Paul just struck me as beautiful. It was set up right out of the box. I had little to no work to do setting it up properly. Again, it is strikingly beautiful, and it plays just as good as it sounds. It handles higher-gain setups well, and it is absolutely stunning with a clean setup as well. The push-pull coil split feature is interesting, and I like the tonal differences that it allows when I'm searching for a particular type of sound. The split-coils don't sound like a strat, but the sound is definitely different than non-coil-split options. Lots of tonal possibilities.

          Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Quilt Top PRO Electric Guitar:

          This thing sounds as good as my 4x more expensive Gibson LP. It's a blast to play, super comfortable, and I can't get enough of it. I'm blown away at the build quality, the appearance; the entire package is just perfect.

          Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Quilt Top PRO Electric Guitar:

          I have the trans blue model. I have only spent a few days with it so far but I had to post some comments. Must say that the setup was perfect. Much better than some more expensive USA made guitars that I have purchased in the past. It played like a dream right out of the box (which I must also note, it was triple boxed, wrapped, and had bubble wrap packing also. This was the best packaged guitar that I have ever had delivered). Great job by the US setup crew. The finish is also perfect. The top on mine is actually nicer and better matched than the one that they chose for the "stock" photo. I am not a professional player, and I have never owned a $5,000 guitar, but I have and currently do own ones that cost much more than this Epiphone, but I would put this up against any of them. The classic Les Paul sound with a beautiful finish at a great price. You won't be disappointed with this one.

          Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Quilt Top PRO Electric Guitar:

          I have had mine for 1 1/2 years. After recently buying a gibson les paul melody maker that I am NOT happy with, I decided I should review the GOOD guitar. I also own a 2011 gibson les paul studio gold top. This Epiphone is a wonderful instrument! The best of the bunch. The fit and finish: EXELLENT, really! The probuckers with the coil split is amazing. You can squeeze out tones that will pleasantly surprise you. It stays in tune very well after the initial set up. No, it was not set up perfectly upon delivery but very few are. I notice the price has gone down since I bought mine. This is a great chance to buy a great guitar for a very low price. This thing is heavy compared to my Gibsons. I play it every day and it still looks as new. Buy one! You wont be sorry.

          High quality Import Les Paul

          By Matthew Ackerman

          from San Jose, Ca

          Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Quilt Top PRO Electric Guitar:

          This Epiphone LP has an AMAZING looking finish with the quilt top. From what I can tell it's just about flawless. Everyone I have showed it to goes "wow!" This is the same as the 'Standard Pro' but with a higher quality veneer. Grover machine heads are great, pickups sound amazing, controls are solid and well placed. I really can't find anything to complain about. The 'out of the box' setup needed a little work but I haven't found a guitar yet that didn't. I adjusted the relief, string height and intonation and it has been rocking for me ever since. The guitar has a terrific bluesy sound clean and can play just about anything heavy with the distortion cranked up. Is it the same as M.I.U.S.A. Gibson quality? Of course not, but it's very close. I can nit-pick about a few things but for the money this is a terrific guitar. If this is your budget and you are looking for an Epiphone Les Paul that is a little bit unique finish wise, give this one a go. I think you will be pleased with the results. I haven't been able to put this thing down it sounds so good. The coil split feature in the Pro line is also very cool. You can make some really unique sounds with that feature. The guitar is the perfect weight and the neck fits like a glove to me. Seriously. I love this thing.

          I am in love with this guitar. Amazing quality and value.

          from San Jose, CA

          Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Quilt Top PRO Electric Guitar:

          The quality, fit and finish of this guitar are really something else. Epiphone is coming out with some really REALLY high quality first rate guitars. Go down and look at this thing. You will be impressed I guarantee it. I sat at guitar center and played a large number of the Epiphone Les Pauls and this particular model, and the plus top pro sister, are fantastic. This is the top of the line of the Les Paul standard type design for Epiphone. The tone and sustain are amazing. I paired this with a great 100 dollar off coupon and left the store with a giant smile. Thank you Guitar Center and Epiphone! This guitar will give me years of enjoyment. I got the 'faded burst' design and there is nothing faded about it. The color pops and the quilt top wood looks simply amazing. So what it is veneer? The body it one solid piece of mahogany, nothing is glued like old designs. It has an ivory binding ( no it is NOT painted!) The finger board is rose wood and it looks great. If this is your budget ( and even if its below ) and you want a great Les Paul take a hard look at this model. I love it! The 'burstbuckers' sounds great! The split coils are really cool and allow a much different sound. The guitar needed some serious setup but what guitar doesn't? They are wood and must be adjusted for your climate.
