A mahogany body, a hard maple top and Gibson's '57 pickups with series/parallel switching.
Epiphone's long friendship with innovator Les Paul dates back to the late '30s and early '40s when Les and fellow guitarists such as Charlie Christian and George Barnes were at the forefront of jazz guitar. Epi Stathopoulos and Les were good friends and Epi would let Les use the Epiphone factory on 14th Street in New York City at night after hours to experiment on guitar and pickup designs. This also was the era when Les, inspired by the stinging sustain heard in electric steel guitars, began dreaming of making a solidbody guitar. He built his first, the legendary "Log," at the Epi factory in 1941. Over the years, Les continued to work closely with Epiphone luthiers, reviewing new product ideas and offering suggestions.
Now, the Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus honors Epiphone's friendship with Les by combining his classic design features with legendary Epiphone quality and value with the added power of Gibson USA '57 Classic humbuckers. But this guitar is not just about recreating the "old," it's also about looking ahead, just as Les himself continued to do throughout his lifetime. Using 4-conductor pickup wiring, Epiphone has added two push/pull tone pots to allow for series/parallel pickup switching. The result is a Les Paul with all the standard sounds plus a huge palette of tonal possibilities at your fingertips. The Les Paul Tribute Plus also features Epiphone's famous built-to-last hardware and electronics including a U.S. Switchcraft 3-way toggle, Mallory-150 tone capacitors, Epiphone StrapLocks, 16:1 ratio premium Grover locking tuners, and a premium hardshell case.

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus Electric Guitar:
I placed my order on 2 24 14 at about 12:30 and on the 27 of same week it was at my back door. three days delivery. I was happy to see more than I though I would see. one beautiful guitar in black cherry I have looked it over several times and the only thing I could find was the fret board had some dark substance which came off on my fingers so I cleaned it off.all I had to do was tune it.i have a Gibson lpj about 6 months old an I like the epiphone better for feel sound and looks the Gibson is a great guitar but so is the epi.i gave it a 4 star only because of the black substance on the neck. also I had to have the Gibson set up but this thing came out of the box ready to play so if you are thinking about buying an epiphone don't think twice just do it.
