Out of all of Les Paul’s many achievements—inventor, guitarist, hit recording artist—Les is most beloved among musicians for his Les Paul Standard, one of the most sought-after guitars in the world. And now, the Epiphone Ltd. Edition Les Paul Standard Quilt Top PRO gives the legend a fresh glow with Epiphone ProBucker-2™ and ProBucker-3™ pickups with coil-tapping, a AAA flame quilt maple veneer top, and beautiful new color finishes in Faded Cherry Sunburst and Trans Blue.
Epiphone’s history with legendary guitarist and innovator Les Paul dates back to the early 1940s when Les, working nights at the Epiphone factory on 14th Street in New York City, created his prototype solid body electric guitar, “The Log.” Over the next 15 years, Les continued to develop his dream guitar that would “sustain for days”. In the late ’50s, Epiphone’s historic Kalamazoo factory made that dream come true with the Les Paul Standard and its new pickup, the “PAF” humbucker. Players like Slash, Joe Bonamassa, Ace Frehley, Zakk Wylde, Jimmy Page, Alex Lifeson and countless others get their signature sound from the Les Paul Standard and now Epiphone gives you a chance to experience that one-of-a-kind tone at an affordable price with the Epiphone Ltd. Edition Les Paul Standard Quilt Top PRO. The Les Paul Standard Quilt Top PRO features ProBucker™ “PAF”-style pickups with coil-tapping, new colors and a beautiful AAA flame quilt maple veneer top for a vintage look with all the modern appointments that players expect from Epiphone.
