Les Paul Standard 50s – Heritage Cherryburst
The long friendship between Epiphone and Les Paul began in 1940, when Les Paul built one of the world’s first full-body electric guitars while working nights at Epiphone’s original factory in Manhattan. Les’ first full-body guitar, nicknamed the Log, was to inspire the Les Paul Standard, which many consider to be the greatest electric guitar ever made.
The Les Paul Standard 50s models are part of Epiphone’s new Inspired by Gibson Collection and recreate the sound of the Les Pauls of the 1950s. Featuring a classic mahogany body with maple top and mahogany neck with long tenon. Equipped with ProBucker™ humbuckers with 50’s style wiring and CTS electronics.
