Certain models over the years have been weight relieved but current models like the Standard and the Custom are not chambered.
Not at all. Since Gibson have owned Epiphone (or rather, they were both bought by the same conglomerate) since 1957, an Epiphone Les Paul is very much a 'real' Les Paul. It is made in China to a specific budget rather than crafted in the USA but the outline and design is the same. This is why Epiphone are allowed to display Les Paul's name on the headstock.
All Epiphone Les Paul models have a scale length of 24.75". This is slightly smaller then 'standard', which is 25.5". The 24.75" scale length is extremely popular and is used on all Gibson guitars too.
A set neck, sometimes referred to as a 'glued in' neck is a method for joining a guitar's neck to its body. It is a more time consuming and expensive method than simply bolting a neck onto a neck pocket. Set neck guitars are known to have more inherent sustain due to the glued join effectively making the body and neck one big vibrating piece of wood. Lots of Epiphone guitars, including the Les Paul Standard, the Sheraton and many others are made in this way.
