About the Epiphone Les Paul Standard

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard is the most popular model in the Epiphone Les Paul range. It is based on the Gibson Standard and features the same outline, body thickness and set-neck construction. It offers a more affordable way of owning a Les Paul Standard while still offering excellent quality and playability.

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard has a mahogany body with a maple top and two humbucker pickups. This stays true to the core aspects of what makes the Standard so great. It is well suited to many styles of music but most players choose it for its excellent ability to produce big rock tones. It is available in a wide variety of colours including Heritage Cherry Sunburst, Metallic Gold and Ebony.

Whether you are looking to upgrade from a beginner model or want a reliable guitar for performing live, the Epiphone Les Paul Standard will do a great job.

  • Frequently Asked Questions about Epiphone Les Paul Standard

    Question: Does the Epiphone Les Paul Standard have a solid body?
    Yes. The Les Paul standard has a non-weight relieved Mahogany body with a Maple cap.
    Question: What is the difference between an Epiphone Les Paul Standard and an Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Top Pro?
    There are a few notable upgrades to the Plus top Pro model which separate it from the regular Epiphone Les Paul Standard. Firstly, the Standard is available only in solid finishes. The Plus top Pro has a AAA grade Flame Maple top. It is available in a range of translucent burst finishes including Heritage Cherry Sunburst and Honeyburst. This puts it visually much closer to most people's idea of a Les Paul Standard. The hardware is also different. The Standard model has a pair of Alnico Classic humbuckers. The Plus Top Pro has a set of upgraded Probuckers, each with coil-splitting controls. The Plus Top Pro model also has an upgraded Graphtech nut.
    Question: What does PAF mean?
    PAF stands for Patent Applied For and refers to the stamp on the back of special Gibson humbucking pickups from the 1950s. These units provide what is arguably the most sought-after electric guitar sounds ever. Many third party companies strive to provide their own versions for after-market retrofitting. Epiphone's ProBuckers, which are stock pickups on the Les Paul Standard Plus Top Pro, are designed to get as close to the PAF tone as possible.
