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 St. 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 liked to say.
Perhaps the most famous incarnation of Les' namesake solidbody, the Les Paul Standard, has remained the most sought-after guitar in the world for over 50 years. Now, Epiphone's Les Paul Standard Plus Top model offers the legendary Les Paul Standard sound with a stunning Flame maple top.
Players like Jimmy Page, Slash, Ace Frehley, Mark Knopfler, Zakk Wylde, Alex Lifeson, Neal Schon and countless others rely on the tone of the Les Paul Standard, and now you too can experience a real Les Paul Standard Plus Top at a price that won't break the bank!
