Epiphone Les Paul Studio LT, Heritage Cherry Sunburst
Epiphone Les Paul Studio LT Overview by GAK:The Les Paul Studio LT™ has some classic “Les Paul” features including a Mahogany body with a carved top, powerful Zebra-Coil Ceramic humbuckers, and a Mahogany neck with an easy-to-play tapered neck joint. The Les Paul Studio LT™ has everything new players need to get that one-of-a-kind Les Paul sound without breaking the bank. The all-Mahogany body has a carved top and is slightly lighter and slimmer than full-size Les Pauls so it’s easy to hold for long practices and gigs. The bolt-on Mahogany neck has a “Les Paul” scale length of 24.75” with a 1.68” nut, a 2-way adjustable truss rod for a perfect setup, a Rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dot inlays, and a smooth tapered neck joint for easy reach to upper frets.
The Les Paul Studio LT™’s classic “Les Paul” power comes from two Zebra Coil Ceramic Humbuckers. Owners of vintage Les Pauls often remove their pickup covers for a better bass response and magnetic pull, which (with luck of the draw!) can often reveal the black & white (“zebra”) plastic bobbins underneath. Ceramic pickups have a higher output than vintage Alnico magnet pickups and are designed to provide a tight low-end response with both a smooth mid-range and a slightly more pronounced top end tone. Ceramic magnets have been a favourite of metal and hard rock guitarists for decades. The Les Paul Studio LT™ has a 650R™ in the rhythm position and a 700T in the lead position. Controls include volume and tone for each pickup and an all-metal 3-way pickup selector. The Les Paul Studio LT™ features Epiphone-designed rock solid all-nickel hardware including the classic Les Paul bridge combo of a LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, a non-rotating ¼” output jack, and premium die-cast 14:1 ratio machine heads.
