Epiphone and Mr. Les Paul
The idea for the “Les Paul” guitar was born at Epiphone and Les’ spirit of innovation still inspires us everyday. Epiphone’s long friendship with Mr. Les Paul dates back to 1940 when Les, working after-hours at the original Epiphone factory in Manhattan, created one of the world’s first solid body electric guitars which he nicknamed “The Log”.
It wasn’t long before “The Log” evolved into the legendary Les Paul. And over the years, Les continued to work closely with Epiphone reviewing new products and offering suggestions, often doing his own mods at home. The new Epiphone Les Paul Traditional PRO-II combines the best of Les’ original design with an array of modern features Les himself might have made.
Classic Les Paul Styling…with a Twist
The new Les Paul Traditional PRO-II has the classic build and profile of all Les Pauls with a solid mahogany body and a traditional carved top. New color finishes include Ebony, Desertburst, Ocean Blue, Vintage Sunburst and Wine Red. The solid mahogany neck has a 1960's SlimTaper “D” profile with a 24.75 in. scale and is hand-fitted and glued into the body so the entire guitar resonates as a single piece of wood. A "worn" type finish on the back of the neck and body add to the lived-in feel. The neck has a rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, single-ply cream binding, and mother-of-pearl trapezoid inlays.
Alnico Classic PRO and ProBucker Humbuckers - Plus Coil Splitting and Boost
The Les Paul Traditional PRO-II is powered by Epiphone’s most popular humbuckers featuring newly tooled, USA-style bobbins. In the neck position is an Alnico Classic PRO with Alnico-II magnets with open zebra coils for a warm, thick, vintage tone. The Alnico Classic PRO is paired with an Epiphone ProBucker-3 at the bridge. The ProBucker-3 is inspired by Gibson's classic BurstBucker-3 and features unevenly wound coils and Alnico-II magnets that replicate the tone of "Patent Applied For" humbuckers found in priceless vintage, '50s-era Les Pauls.
Controls use classic “Top Hat” Volume and Tone knobs which have push/pull potentiometers allowing you to coil-split each pickup for single-coil sounds. Combined with the 3-way toggle, you can get six unique sounds from one great Les Paul guitar. You can also pull up on the bridge pickup’s tone knob for an additional 15 dB boost. The active Boost control is powered by a 9-volt battery, which is easily accessible at the back of body.
The Les Paul Traditional PRO-II comes with legendary Grover machine heads with an 18:1 tuning ratio, a traditional cream colored pickguard, solid nickel LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, and Epiphone StrapLocks. An optional case is also available.
Like all Epiphones, the Les Paul Traditional PRO-II comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty and is backed by world-famous 24/7/365 Gibson Customer Service.
