Vintage look and classic Les Paul P-90 tone.

The Epiphone 1956 Les Paul Pro Electric Guitar is an incredible reincarnation of the guitar heard ˜round the world. When it was released in 1952, original advertisements for the Goldtop Les Paul read "designed by Les Paul and enthusiastically approved by top guitarists everywhere." Time has proven that to be an understatement.

The Les Paul Goldtop was a radical design for its time. Even Gibson was so unsure of the model that at first, they hesitated putting the company name on the headstock. Whenever Les visited Epiphone, he always got a kick out of telling that story, especially since the hard work and sweat that went into his design was originally done under the roof of Epiphone in New York City.

Case sold separately.

Classic Styling for the Ages
The ultra classic 1956 Les Paul Pro Electric Guitar starts with the iconic Les Paul shape, still cut from the same legendary tooling specs as it was in the early days with a mahogany body and hand-set mahogany 24.75" scale neck. Like the original, the 1956 Les Paul Pro Electric Guitar features a rosewood fretboard with pearloid trapezoid inlays, a 1.68" nut, 22 jumbo medium frets, and Les' iconic signature on the headstock and truss rod cover.

The Roar of the Original P-90
Over the years, Les Paul enthusiasts have become so obsessed with the ˜Burst they often forget that many players first fell for the Goldtop during the guitar's P-90 era. Just like the original, the 1956 Les Paul Pro Electric Guitar features two cream soapbar P-90 Classic pickups that when combined with the mahogany body, give the Les Paul a familiar yet still totally unique timbre.

Epiphone Hardware Can't Be Beat
Epiphone always uses all-metal hardware including a 3-way toggle switch, a nickel LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and StopBar tailpiece, full function volume and tone knobs using full-size 500Kohm potentiometers, and premium die-cast 18:1 tuners.

    Comments about Epiphone 1956 Les Paul Pro Electric Guitar:

    what a great guitar, excellent value and LIGHT! Les Pauls are known as being relatively heavy guitars, this one checks in under 8 lbs, incredible! the neck is larger which I prefer and the pick ups through my 58' tweed tremolux copy are amazing, straight neck, excellent workmanship. This is my 7th electric Epi and they all have been execllent guitars, amazing bang for the buck...kudos to customer service, they rock!
