Les Paul Standard
Epiphone's history with legendary guitarist and innovator Les Paul dates back to the early 1940's when Les, working late at night at the Epiphone factory on 14th Street in New York City, created what might have been the world's first solidbody electric guitar, better known as "The Log." Over the years, Les continued to work closely with Epiphone luthiers reviewing new product ideas and offering suggestions. “Epiphone always made a good guitar,” Les often said.
The Les Paul Standard remains one of the most sought after guitars in the world 50 years since its first issue. Now, Epiphone's Les Paul Standard brings you the classic features and tone of Les’ invention with legendary Epiphone quality and value.
Players like Jimmy Page, Slash, Ace Frehley, Mark Knopfler, Zakk Wylde, Alex Lifeson and countless others rely on the unique tone of a Les Paul. And now, you too can experience the Les Paul Standard at a price that won't break the bank!

The Epiphone Les Paul Standard features a solid mahogany body and maple top that deliver the classic tone and sustain that can only come from a real Les Paul. Like all Epiphone Les Pauls (and unlike less costly designs), the Epiphone Les Paul Standard features a 14 degree headstock that gives you more pressure at the nut for more sustain with less tuning hang-ups caused by "string-tree" gadgets. A rosewood fingerboard with trapezoid inlays completes the classic Les Paul Standard look. The hand-set mahogany neck delivers outstanding string-to-body resonance while medium-jumbo frets add to the smooth and sustained tone.
the Les Paul Sound
A pair of Alnico Classic™ humbucker pickups deliver that warm, rich tone known the world over as the Les Paul Sound. When winding our humbuckers, Epiphone utilizes a double vacuum waxing process that ensures you quiet operation free from microphonic hum. The pickup is first placed in a specialized wax vacuuming system before the cover is placed on the unit to ensure that the wax fully penetrates to the very center of the pickup and solidifies all parts. After the cover is placed on, the pickup is given a second vacuum wax bath until the unit is completely saturated. Epiphone uses only the highest quality parts for our pickups including ABS plastic bobbins, 1010 Cold Rolled Steel pole shoes and pole screws, Alnico magnets and the finest magnet wire available.
Legendary Epiphone Hardware
The Epiphone Les Paul Standard features our legendary rock solid hardware including our locking Tune-o-matic™ StopBar fully adjustable bridge, a classic for over 50 years. And now, our updated patent pending design auto-locks the bridge and tailpiece in place with no tools needed! This also results in improved sustain. The Epiphone Les Paul Standard uses 1" diameter potentiometers for better "throw", longer life, and reliable service and our all-metal toggle switches use rugged spring-steel contacts to ensure years of reliable service and performance. Epiphone’s proprietary output jack features an improved contact shape and heavy-duty spring steel to increase reliability. All our Les Paul Standards include Grover® machine heads for stability and long life.
