Description

This is the left-handed version of the Les Paul Standard ’50s guitar. 

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard ’50s model is part of the “Inspired by Gibson” collection. With a mahogany body, AAA maple top, set neck with block inlays and dual ProBucker pickups, this Standard looks like a time-traveler from Kalamazoo, straight from '58. If you want a vintage ’Paul without the exorbitant price, the Epiphone Les Paul Standard cops the vibe and sound, and may become your day-to-day player.

The Les Paul Standard '50s: Powered by ProBuckers
Epiphone’s ProBucker pickups are based on the most sought-after humbuckers in Gibson’s history—the mighty “Patent Applied For.” The left-handed Les Paul Standard ’50s features two ProBuckers with a similar warm and fat tone.

The Les Paul Standard '50s AAA maple top
A gloss finish highlights the flame on the guitar's AAA maple top. Don’t expect modern weight relief—this is a ’50s Standard. It’s made with mahogany. You'll feel it, and it's worth it.

Epiphone’s neck and updated headstock
The mahogany neck is set with a long tenon joint for increased sustain. It has a ’59 rounded medium C-profile—if you prefer a slightly thicker neck that’s not a baseball bat, you’ll feel right at home. The updated headstock gives the ’50s Les Paul Standard a new identity that fits with its vintage styling. The Epiphone logo is inlayed with mother of pearl.

Other ’50’s specs from Epiphone
The left-handed Les Paul Standard utilizes ’50s-style wiring, dual volume and tone controls with gold top hat knobs, trapezoid fret markers and vintage deluxe tuners.
