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 Traditional Pro electric guitar combines the best of Les Paul's original design with new features that set this Epiphone guitar apart.

Professional Electronics.
The Les Paul Traditional Pro uses Epiphone's 4-wire, nickel/silver base humbuckers with newly tooled, USA-style bobbins. In the neck position is the Alnico Classic Pro humbucker with Alnico-II warm, thick vintage tone and open zebra coils. It's uniquely paired with Epiphone's ProBucker-3 humbucker. An inspired by version of Gibson's BurstBucker-3, the Les Paul guitar features unevenly wound coils and Alnico-II magnets that replicate that "Patent Applied for" airy tone. You'll love the way they sound! 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.

Tone Woods with Great Feel!
The Epiphone Les Paul Traditional Pro guitar has a solid mahogany back with a carved top and a solid mahogany neck that's hand-fitted and glued into the body for excellent neck-to-body contact and acting almost like one continuous piece of wood. The guitar neck features a SlimTaper D profile with a smooth and fast "worn" type finish on the back of the neck and body.

Loaded with premium add-ons!
Other features on the Epiphone Les Paul included quality Grover tuners, a traditional cream-colored pickguard, LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge/stopbar, and Epiphone's own StrapLocks. Like every Epiphone, the electric guitar features their Limited Lifetime warranty backed by world famous 24/7/365 day Gibson Customer Service.

I do a lot of research before I buy an instrument. I spent about two months studying before I settled on this guitar. It came down to either a Schecter Solo6 custom or the Epiphone trad pro. I also played the Gibson counterpart for a fair comparison. In my mind the only real difference in the Gibson model and Epiphone model is from top of the nut up and the $$$$. I'm pretty much a nit picker also but I don't have a problem paying the bucks to get what I'm looking for. This was a no brainer. I can't say how consistent quality is from one guitar to another but I can tell you what I got. My Epiphone trad pro came from Guitar Center in Avondale, AZ. This ax doesn't have a single flaw in it. The neck set up was near perfect. The intonation on three strings was slightly sharp. The neck is a little fat but comfortable and fast. The binding, inlay work and detail is superb. All the electronics are first rate. The pups are just what you should expect. The neck pup has that rich creamy sound you would expect from quality buckers. It has plenty of mid range crunch and it shreds preamp tubes beautifully. The coil split feature won't disappoint you either. I would describe the sound as a cross between a tele and a strat depending on what amp you play through. I like the sound better than my 1970 Fender tele. I bought the ebony model and it is gorgeous. I had to warm up to the satin finish on the back but I'm OK with that now too. I've had this ax for about two months now and the more I play this guitar, the more I like it. It doesn't seem all that heavy to me either. It has become my hands on favorite and I have three others. I'm so taken with what I got that I'm tempted to go back to GC and buy the Epiphone solid walnut SG. If you are looking for quality at good price you owe it to yourself to check this guitar out. Remember that an Epiphone Les Paul is not a copy or a clone. It's a model authorized by Gibson and this one without a doubt has my endorsement.

It's a fairly decent guitar and sounds good. Although you can tell it's not an expensive guitar, the details aren't too bad. I bought by mistake the pitch black (thought it was a regular black) but it's pretty cool, different at least. It's probably more delicate than the regular ones, since you are in direct contact with the wood, and it's a thin layer. The back and the neck are satin but a bit rough. After some days the satin neck gets glossy with the use. The neck is chunky but comfortable. The electronics work good and it's shielded with paint, so it's fairly noiseless. The knobs came all misaligned, but with patience and care you can take them off and place them back correctly. Be careful with the tap coil knobs! I broke one of the pots and it was a headache getting a standard replacement to work properly. The pickup selector is not as silent as I would like it to be, but works fine. One thing I find as a disadvantage, is the frets. They are too tall for my taste. If you press hard on the strings they will get out tune, because you are stretching them a lot. You have to play gently. Also they came without polishing. Very harsh. I polished them myself with kitchen stainless steel wool (protecting the fretboard with tape) and they improved a lot. Another thing I'm experiencing, is that when you hit hard on the string on chords it may sound out of tune. Specially the low E string. I replaced the plastic nut with a tusq, but it didn't change that. Maybe it's the bridge. Tuners work fine and feel solid. The bridge may buzz a bit, depending on the strings you use and the adjustment of the screws. Nothing crazy anyway. Not sure, but the woods in the body seem maple, with a thick layer of mahogany in the back and a thin layer of pitch black maple on top. It's lighter than a regular les Paul, but heavier than a strat. The neck is a two piece wood, joined in the headstock. If it's done correctly it supposed to be stronger than a single piece but cheaper. Mine is well done. It has a good sustain and sounds good at high volume. I haven't use it live yet, but I'm pretty confident about it. I'm using it with a tone bender style fuzz and sounds very good.
I would recommend this guitar to someone who's starting and has the money or someone who just has the money but it's a bit experienced. Not the pro, of course.

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Traditional PRO Electric Guitar:

so i went through all of the epiphone les paul and a few gibson les pauls. and this was the last one i tried and it within seconds i got the fat heavy sound that i was expecting. really happy with the purchase! plus it was way cheaper than i was expecting to pay for the same sound so i got to get a hardshell case, and a marshall amp. and some picks. do yourself a favor and buy this one quick.

Trad Pro really versatile

By Derek Belbin

from NL. Canada

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Traditional PRO Electric Guitar:

The Epiphone Traditional Pro is just a sublime guitar and the coil tapping feature also makes it a must for gigging musicians.You can get the raunch of humbuckers and sparkle of single coils without having to switch guitars between songs.The single coil sound is more like a Fender Jaguar than a Strat type sound-which is not a bad thing. The humbuckers sound so much like the old PAFs it's uncanny-just brilliant. The Trad Pro's action and neck are extremely comfortable-this is one guitar that every player should have in his/her arsenal.

Worth every penny!

By Corey Caso

from Carteret, New Jersey

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Traditional PRO Electric Guitar:

This is by far the best guitar I have ever played! It looks and feels like a gibson at a fraction of the price. From the moment I picked it up I could tell it was a very solid guitar. I play rythm guitar in a band and this guitar is definitely versatile enough to sound great in both rythm and lead roles. The best part of this guitar has to be that genuine ballsy rock and roll tone!

Epiphone Les Paul

By Justin Holthusen

from Mountainburg, Arkansas

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Traditional PRO Electric Guitar:

I own many guitars, some Gibsons, Jackson, Ibanez, and Epiphone. This guitar compared to my Gibson Les Paul Standard their is barely any comparison. The Gibson is a little heavier and the pickups are of a little better quality but the Epiphone is the closest thing you will get to it for this price. Id buy it again if i got the chance

Absolutely Wonderful

By Jon Leite

from East Haven Ct

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Traditional PRO Electric Guitar:

This guitar really is a beauty. Not only does it have this wonderful look but it gives a incredible sound for an epiphone. You are 100% getting more than your money's worth. It gived off such a great tone. You cant make this baby sound great for whatever genre you play. It not only gives the incredible gibson sound but even feels like a gibson. I would recommend this guitar to any player, young, old, beginner, or expert.

decent guitar

By A.Y.

from Chapel Hill, North Carolina

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Traditional PRO Electric Guitar:

I was playing with one of my friends who had this guitar and I noticed how great it looked. He let me try it out and it really felt amazing, the neck was perfect and it sounded great. The only two problems that I noticed with it were that it was hard to play notes near where the neck and the body meet, I'm used to SGs where access to upper frets is very easy. The only other problem was that the pickups weren't the greatest in the world but they were decent. I would say if you get this, you should change the pickups but thats it. This guitar feels and sounds better to me than the Gibson Les Paul Studio.

Amazing!

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Traditional PRO Electric Guitar:

This Epiphone Les Paul is one of the greatest out there.It has a great style and amazing sound quality. The bridge is ideal for palm muting. Also, the 3-way toggle and the two volume knobs allows for variety of sound. I like this Les Paul because it's not like the others. there's just something about it that'll make you fall in love with it. This guitar is defintely worth getting!

fat sounding and affordable

By steve hitler

from tucson AZ

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Traditional PRO Electric Guitar:

i played the wine red one at guitar center today. the finish was excellent. back and neck is matte, and not gloss. i happen to really like epiphones "worn" finishes. this guitar gives you the nice gloss top with the comfort of and smoothness of a non gloss neck. pickups are nice and fat sounding. the coil taps are a nice option. i was considering switching them out, but i think these stock ones are nice. im now seriously considering purchasing one of these. sounds great, looks, great, feels great. very versatile and totally affordable and no modification needed.

Best in price range

By Drew

from Mullica Hill, NJ

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Traditional PRO Electric Guitar:

Absolutely LOVE this guitar. I usually go for Fenders, but the feel and sound of this beauty changed my mind. I was wary of the flat/matte finish on the neck, but it actually comes in handy when your hands sweat. No sticking!. Also, the tonal capabilities of this guitar are fantastic. Also, with the Grover tuners, this thing stays in tune suprisingly well. I recommend this to ANYONE.
