Classic Les Paul Features
The Epiphone Les Paul Studio features a solid mahogany body and delivers the classic tone and sustain that can only come from a "real" Les Paul. Like all Epiphone Les Pauls, the Epiphone Les Paul Studio features a 14 degree headstock that gives you more pressure at the nut for more sustain and less tuning hang-ups caused by "string-tree" gadgets. A rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays complete the classic Les Paul Studio look. A hand- set mahogany neck delivers outstanding string-to-body resonance while medium-jumbo frets add to the smooth and sustained tone.
Alnico Humbuckers and the Les Paul Sound
A pair of open Alnico Classic Humbucker Pickups deliver a vintage vibe with rich warm tone gives you that legendary Les Paul Studio sound. When winding our humbuckers, Epiphone utilizes a double vacuum waxing process that ensures quiet operation, free from microphonic hum. The pickup is first placed in the 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, it's again given a second vacuum wax bath until the unit is completely saturated with wax. Epiphone uses only the highest quality parts for our pickups like 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 Studio features our legendary rock solid hardware including our locking Tune-o-matic™/StopBar fully adjustable bridge which remains a classic after 50 years. And now, our updated, patent-pending design auto locks the bridge and tailpiece in place with no tools needed for improved sustain! The Epiphone Les Paul Studio uses 1" diameter potentiometers for better "throw", longer life, and reliable service. 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 and all our Les Paul Studios include Grover® machine heads on our tuners for stability and long life.
