Electric Guitar Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop Pro VS
Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO: Now featuring Pro-BuckerTM Pickups with coil-tapping and new colours! Including a beautiful AAA flame maple veneer top and amazing transparent finishes.
The Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO delivers the classic tone and sustain that only a real Les can achieve.
It now features Pro-BuckerTM pickups for that one-of-a kind Les Paul sound. Pro-BuckerTM pickups feature Alnico II magnets, the same magnets used in sought-after vintage PAF humbuckers. Alnico II magnets provide a rich, warm tone with a sparkling high end and a solid low end. The Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO features a Pro-Bucker-2TM in the neck position and a Pro-Bucker-3 TM in the bridge position. The Pro-Bucker-3TM is slightly over-wound to provide balance with the neck pickup and a bit of edge for lead work. Pro-BuckersTM emulate the sound of original PAF pickups which were hand-wound with a few extra turns of wire. Both the neck and bridge pickups now also feature coil-tapping, controlled by a push/pull volume control, allowing players an infinite variety of pickup sounds from single-coil bark to full humbucker bite. When winding humbuckers, Epiphone utilizes a double vacuum waxing process that ensures quiet operation, free from microphonic hum.

He’d spend every weekend at the empty factory halls of Epiphone in order to work on the realisation of his concept of the ideal guitar. Around in 1941 Les Paul built “The Log” which was his first prototype of an electric solid body guitar. He used a block of maple wood which he fitted with a bridge, pickups, tailpiece and a normal Gibson guitar neck. He then cut along one his Epiphone guitars and glued both halves of the body to the back and front of the block and finished was his first solidbody electric guitar.Standard/Classic Collection
