Available to only selected European Retailers, the EpiClub 1956 Les Paul Standard Pro is now available in a gorgeous Chicago Blue finish.
The original 1956 Les Paul Standard was unfortunately discontinued, now resurrected in the form of this Epiphone re-issue!
Retaining the classic solidbody mahogany tone that Les Pauls are renowned for, the '56 special edition sees the addition of a pair of P-90 pickups which deliver punchy, hot rodded tone that cuts through any mix with ease. A plain maple top offers vintage Les Paul sustain and gives the Standard Pro a stripped-back, uncluttered vibe with single ply cream binding.
Epiphone P-90 PRO pickups feature Alnico V magnets, the same magnets used in sought-after vintage Les Paul with P-90s from the early 1950s. Alnico V magnets provide a rich, warm tone with a sparkling high end and a solid low end which makes the “1956” Les Paul Standard PRO one of the most versatile guitars around.
A rock-solid hardware package consists of a LockTone Tune-o-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece - used on most Les Pauls for its ease of use and stable, consistent tuning. The “1956” Les Paul Standard PRO also uses 1” diameter potentiometers for better “throw,” longer life, and reliable service.
