Epiphone Les Paul vs. Gibson Les Paul


Gibson Les Pauls have become pricier every year-way out of reach for many players, which paved the way for the cheaper Epiphone version of the Les Paul. Watch the video to find out the differences and similarities of the Gibson and Epiphone Les Paul guitars.

Epiphone Les Paul Standard Specs:

  • Mahogany body
  • Maple veneer over carved top
  • Chrome hardware
  • Grover tuners
  • Rosewood fretboard with trapezoid inlays
  • 24-3/4″ scale
  • 1-11/16″ nut width
  • Set mahogany neck
  • Slim-tapered neck profile
  • Alnico Classic humbuckers

The Epiphone version of the Les Paul standard is a great buy. It’s tone is not quite that of the Gibson, but almost as nice.

    Gibson Les Paul Studio Specs:

    • Carved maple top and mahogany back
    • Rosewood fingerboard
    • 2 volume and 2 tone knobs, 3-way switch
    • Tune-O-Matic bridge with stopbar
    • Chrome or gold hardware
    • 490R (neck) and 498T (bridge) Alnico 2 magnet humbucker pickups, 2 of Gibsons most popular pickups

    The most noticeable difference between an Epiphone and a Gibson Les Paul is the price tag. Believe it or not, the Epiphone is a real Les Paul, not a bad Les Paul shaped imitation
