This 2021 Epiphone 1959 Les Paul Standard is in excellent, virtually unplayed cosmetic condition. The neck profile on this instrument is that of a chunky “late 50s” carve with rolled fingerboard edges and a 1 11/16” nut width. This neck is very nice feeling and Epiphone has done a great job recreating a classic neck profile while retaining comfort. This is certainly one of the nicest Epiphone necks that I’ve experienced. The frets are in virtually unplayed condition and show no wear. This Les Paul plays great up and down the fingerboard. The Gibson Burstbucker 1 and 2 pickups sound tremendous in this guitar and really take this Epiphone to the next level. The bridge pickup has a very articulate yet round tone that excels with an overdriven amp and has plenty of bite. The neck position is great for jazzy clean tones and thick overdriven leads. This Lester also features CTS 500k potentiometers, Malory Capacitors and a Switchcraft three way switch making this instrument rock solid in the electronics department and saving you from having to immediately upgrade these components. In addition, this Les Paul has an aged nickel Faber bridge and tailpiece which have been professionally installed and are very nice upgrades to this guitar. The figured maple top on this Les Paul is exceptionally nice and pairs well with the Aged Heritage Cherry Fade finish and the new Epiphone peghead shape. If you are after a really stellar Epiphone Les Paul, then this will not disappoint.
