Epiphone Les Paul Classic Worn ENLPCWVPNH1 Guitar Worn Violet Purple

Vintage tone - but louder

The late '50s was a seminal era for the Les Paul. It's when it really began to make its name in music. Rock 'n' roll was quickly becoming everyone's favourite genre, and the Les Paul helped forge the sound of some of the genre's most iconic tunes. This Epiphone Les Paul Classic Worn is infused with that sound. Featuring a pair of specially designed Alnico Classic Pro humbuckers, it'll let you play with the classic tone of the past. But it packs an extra punch, too. Wound to produce a higher output than standard vintage pickups, you can be certain that your audience will hear every note you play.

The purest clarity

It's in the name: humbucker. They buck the hum often associated with guitar electronics. But you've not played with humbuckers this clear before. They've been through Epiphone's special double vacuum waxing process. Before the covers have been added, the pickups are put into a wax vacuuming system that gets to the heart of the pickup and solidifies every component and part. The covers are then put on, before the pickups are submerged in the wax vacuum for a second time.

All very technical. But what it means is that the pickups are completely sealed, resulting in totally noise-free operation. So crank up the gain all you like - you won't be suffering from any unwanted interference with these humbuckers in your guitar.

A stunning playing experience

Effortless. Riffs and solos will flow naturally from your fingertips when you're playing the Epiphone Les Paul Classic Worn. Its neck has been engineered to provide top level playability. It's got an easy-to-play SlimTaper "C"-shaped profile. This is designed to fit comfortably into the palm of your hand. So you'll never need to worry about cramp preventing you from playing at your best. And the slick quality of the mahogany wood used for the neck will let you smoothly glide from fret to fret at speed. Playing hasn't ever felt this natural.

Out of the box and tuned, this guitar was completely unplayable with the neck so bent that pressing the strings at anywhere beyond the 8th fret fouled the frets higher up the neck, this also meant the action (measured at the 12th fret) was over 6mm. Fortunately I’ve a good understanding of how to set-up a guitar so adjusted the neck to have minimal relief with the truss rod – as a point of interest there was no truss rod allen key in the box, so just as well that I have my own tools. Once the action was set to my preferred settings (and by no means not as low as many like it) I had loads of fret buzz all over the place. So resetting the neck flat and using a ‘fret rocker’ I found 17 of the 22 frets (at various points across the neck) in need of remedial work to get them level. However as the guitar was new I decided initially to just add a bit more neck relief & set the action a shade higher, while I decided if I should just send it back or spending some hours sorting the frets in the near future? There are some positive points! I really liked the ‘worn’ (satin) finish although I feel there should have been a higher discount over the gloss finished versions as this must have saved loads of time during the finishing process. The Alnico Classic PRO pickups sound powerful with loads of variation between the neck and bridge and support coil-splitting. With the coils split option, with push/pull volume pots, there is (as expected) a significant drop in output but they do sound good, verging on P90 territory, rather than Strat/Tele sound ‘alikes’. One of the areas that lower cost guitars usually fail on is the quality of the tuners, here they have fitted Grover Rotomatics with an 18:1 ratio. They are smooth and easy to operate with the large kidney button heads, holding tune very well. The nut, a Graph Tech, was superbly cut, but unfortunately this was completely wasted with the poor quality of fret levelling from the factory as several of the strings would buzz when played open when set at a reasonably low action! The trapezoid neck inlays are very well fitted and although acrylic, do a very good impersonation of mother of pearl. Visually the guitar look stunning with its unusual colour and matt (worn) finish, but I do find the inclusion of gold knobs a bit of a clash with the all Nickel hardware and at the back cream control plate covers just don’t look right and should have been black. But both of these last two issues are a really cheap to resolve at about £12 for both black cover plates and 4 clear knobs. Overall both positives & negatives to consider and if I’d been unable to adjust the guitar myself, there would have been no option but to just send it back for a refund/replacement (hence 3 stars which I think is quite generous) as it is I’ll be keeping this. If I could have bought this locally it would have been great to try before I bought, but my local Epiphone dealer (90 mile round trip) didn’t have any in stock and was unlikely to get one, so I went the mail order route. The guitar is now playing well and will be even better when I get the time to sort out the frets and put a set of 9-42 gauge strings on.
