The legendary Les Paul in Chicago Blue Pearl.
Today, over 50 years after it was first introduced, the Les Paul Standard is still the king of electric guitars. Now, Epiphone' Ltd. Ed. Les Paul Standard Blue Royale brings you all of the œLP Standard' rock-and-roll mojo in an exclusive Chicago Blue Pearl color finish.
Les Paul, the Heart of Rock and Roll
The Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Les Paul Standard Blue Royale features a solid mahogany body and maple top that deliver the classic tone and sustain that can only come from a real Les Paul. Like all Epiphone Les Pauls (and unlike imitations), the Ltd. Ed. Les Paul Standard Blue Royale features a 14-degree headstock that gives you more pressure at the nut for more sustain with less tuning hang-ups caused by "string-tree" gadgets.
The mahogany neck has the legendary SlimTaper D-profile and is hand-set and glued for outstanding string-to-body resonance. The rosewood fingerboard has a 12 radius, a standard Les Paul 24.75 scale, a 1.68" nut, medium jumbo frets for smooth fretting and classic trapezoid inlays. The body and fretboard both feature the Blue Royale Collection' distinctive Silver Sparkle binding, as well as a beautiful metallic silver pickguard.
Alnico Humbuckers, the true Les Paul Sound
The Ltd. Ed. Les Paul Standard Blue Royale is powered by Alnico Classic humbucker pickups, each specifically voiced for the rhythm and lead positions, that deliver the warm, rich tone known the world over as the œLes Paul Sound. Epiphone-designed humbuckers utilize a double vacuum waxing process that ensures quiet operation free from microphonic hum.
After winding, the pickup is first placed in a 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, the pickup is given a second vacuum wax bath until the unit is completely saturated. Epiphone uses only the highest quality parts for our pickups including ABS plastic bobbins, 1010 Cold Rolled Steel pole shoes and pole screws, Alnico magnets (just like original hand wound and sought after vintage œPAF pickups) and the finest magnet wire available.
Legendary Epiphone Hardware
The Ltd. Ed. Les Paul Standard Blue Royale features Epiphone' legendary rock solid hardware including a locking LockTone Tune-o-matic fully adjustable bridge and stopbar tailpiece. And now, Epiphone' updated patent pending design auto-locks the bridge and tailpiece in place with no tools needed for even better and super fast and easy string changes. The Epiphone Les Paul Standard uses 1" diameter potentiometers for better "throw," longer life, and reliable service. Epiphone' all-metal toggle switches use rugged spring-steel contacts to ensure years of reliable service and performance. And Epi' proprietary output jack features an improved contact shape and heavy-duty spring steel to increase reliability. All Epiphone Les Paul Standards come with Grover Rotomatic machine heads with an 18:1 tuning ratio for quick-and-easy tuning that' responsive and reliable.
