Contrary to popular belief, electric guitars are an instrument that requires you to master two very different things. One is, of course, the playing technique, but the other is utilizing the hardware of that guitar and that of the amplifier in order to dial in a great tone.

DetailsThe Epiphone Les Paul Classic Worn is part of the “Inspired by Gibson” collection of guitars. It combines early ’60s standard specs—mahogany body, maple top, mahogany neck—with modern updates. Alnico Classic Pro humbuckers offer vintage growl; the addition of a coil-tap switch gives the Classic a wider array of sounds. The Les Paul Classic Worn is perfect for the player who wants the allure of a vintage instrument in a new guitar. Les Paul Classic Worn Main Features Mahogany body with a maple top, worn finish Mahogany neck with SlimTaper C-profile, Indian laurel fretboard Dual Alnico Classic Pro humbuckers, coil-split, 3-way selector LockTone ABR bridge, stopbar tailpiece, Grover Rotomatic tuners Classic Tonewoods Before releasing the Les Paul in 1952, Gibson president Ted McCarty experimented with different body woods. The first version was solid maple, but McCarty felt that it sounded shrill. Next was solid mahogany. That sounded “too soft.” But when he put the two together—maple on mahogany—it was magic. The Epiphone Les Paul Classic Worn uses this same combination for its sonic base. Neck Construction The mahogany neck has a SlimTaper C-profile, unlike some of the “baseball bat” necks on ’Pauls of the past. An Indian laurel fretboard provides plenty of snap with a pick, or subtlety with fingers. Historic Hardware Epiphone outfitted the Classic Worn with a LockTone ABR bridge and stopbar tailpiece. The Grover Rotomatic tuners have kidney buttons and a modern 18:1 gear ratio. Other high-quality specifications include trapezoid inlays, gold top hat knobs and a Graph Tech nut.
