collapse expand iconDescription

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard '50s Electric Guitar brings a legend back to life. Epiphone has recreated the look, sound and feel of the original 1950s Les Paul Standard that shaped rock music. The mahogany body and maple top provide the warm, balanced tone the Les Paul is known for. The '50s-style wiring and Alnico Classic PRO humbucking pickups deliver the crisp highs and growling lows that defined the early rock era.

Alnico Classic PRO Pickups for Vintage Tone

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard '50s features Alnico Classic PRO humbucking pickups for the authentic PAF tone of the 1950s. The neck pickup produces warm, rounded tones perfect for jazz and blues. The bridge pickup delivers a biting snarl for searing classic rock leads. With the included coil-splitting and phase switching, you have a full palette of vintage and modern sounds at your fingertips.

Mahogany Body and Maple Top: The Legendary Les Paul Sound

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard '50s has a mahogany body and maple top, just like the original. The mahogany provides depth, warmth, and resonance, while the maple adds clarity and articulation. Together they create the balanced, dynamic tone the Les Paul is renowned for.

'50s Rounded Neck Profile for Fast, Comfortable Playing

This Les Paul features Epiphone's '50s Rounded neck profile, which is thicker and rounder than most modern necks. It's extremely comfortable for chording and fast lead work. The neck is made from mahogany and topped with a rosewood fretboard with trapezoid inlays. 22 medium jumbo frets provide easy bending. The neck joint is set for maximum sustain and access to the upper frets.

Premium Appointments for Road-Ready Performance

Epiphone didn't cut any corners with the hardware and electronics on the Les Paul Standard '50s. It features Grover Rotomatic tuners, a LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge, and Orange Drop capacitors. The CTS pots are rated for higher output pickups. All together, these premium parts ensure your Les Paul will stay in tune and capture every nuance of your playing on stage and in the studio.
