This is a stunning "as-new" guitar. Literally a few weeks old and still has the stickers around the tone pots etc. Tobacco Sunburst and looks very much like Slash's axe. Came as a trade in on a Baja Tele.
This top of the line Les Paul has all the bells and whistles. A stunning triple-A grade flame maple top, Grover locking tuners, a SlimTaper neck, high quality electronics, cream binding and a superb Epiphone hard case; this guitar is hard to beat in terms of quality and bang for buck at this price point.
Here's what Epiphone say about it.
Tributes feature a solid Mahogany back with a solid, carved hard Maple cap with Flame Maple veneer to create the ultimate combination of warmth and bite. Everyone knows that set-neck guitars provide the best rock tone and sustain and the Tribute PLUS takes that to the next level featuring the original "deep set" neck joint. The solid Mahogany neck with hand-fitted, glued-in joint extends well into the neck pickup cavity creating maximum neck-to-body contact and acting almost like one continuous piece of wood. Combined with the Mahogany/Maple body, the result is a tribute to Les' timeless guitar design with the sound that you can only get from a Les Paul.
SlimTaper Neck Profile
The new Tribute PLUS features the "1960's" SlimTaper neck with a comfortable "D" shape that was introduced and made famous on many 1960's era, Kalamazoo-made guitars from Gibson and Epiphone. This profile is thick enough to provide the stability and tone you want but thin enough to provide you with the comfort and speed you need. In other words... it feels just right!
But quality construction, premium woods and choice are only part of the equation.
Capturing all the power and nuances of the Tribute PLUS is a pair of authentic Gibson USA '57 Classic humbucking.
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 huge pallette of tonal possibilities - from full-on, in your face humbuckers to quacky singlecoil-like sounds and everything in-between.
Loaded with premium add-ons!
Other upgrades include a U.S. Switchcraft(tm) 3-way toggle, Mallory-150 tone capacitors, Epiphone StrapLocks, 16:1 ratio premium Grover(tm) locking tuners and a premium hard case. Like every Epiphone, it features their Limited Lifetime warranty backed by world famous 24/7/365 day Gibson Customer Service. This guitar is not only a tribute to Les Paul; it's a tribute to just how good a guitar can be...TODAY!
This is one heck of a Les Paul and £250 saving off the new price. I haven't been able to find a mark on it.
