    Product Description

    Epiphone continues its long history of innovation with the introduction of the 1956 Les Paul Standard PRO featuring Epiphone's P-90 PRO pickups made to the original specifications of vintage P-90s including bobbin shape, 18% nickel/silver base and Elektrosola wire. The 1956 Les Paul Standard PRO packs a powerful punch with classic P-90 tone to the bone.

    Classic Les Paul Features:
    The Epiphone 1956 Les Paul Standard PRO features a solid mahogany body with a maple veneer top that delivers the classic tone and sustain that can only come from a real Les Paul. The 1956 PRO has single ply cream binding on the top for a beautiful vintage look. Like all Epiphone Les Pauls—unlike cheap imitations—the Epiphone 1956 Les Paul Standard PRO features a 14 degree angled headstock that gives you more pressure at the nut for longer sustain with less tuning hang-ups caused by string-tree gadgets. The mahogany neck has a 24.75 scale with a 12 radius and features a beefier 1950s Rounded C profile with a glued-in neck joint for lifelong stability. The rosewood fingerboard comes with pearloid trapezoid inlays, 22 medium-jumbo frets, a 1.68 nut, and cream binding.

    Epiphone P-90 PRO Pickups:
    The Epiphone 1956 Les Paul Standard PRO now features P-90 PRO pickups for that one-of-a kind vintage Les Paul sound. 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. Epiphone uses only the highest quality parts for its PRO pickups, including ABS plastic bobbins, 1010 Cold Rolled Steel pole shoes and pole screws, Alnico magnets, and the finest magnet wire available.

    Hardware Guaranteed:
    The Epiphone 1956 Les Paul Standard PRO features Epiphone’s legendary rock-solid hardware including a LockToneTM Tune-o-matic fully adjustable bridge and a Stopbar tailpiece. And now, Epiphone’s updated, patent pending design auto locks the bridge and tailpiece in place with no tools needed for that one-of-a-kind Les Paul sustain. The 1956 Les Paul Standard PRO also uses 1 diameter potentiometers for better throw, longer life, and reliable service. And the all-metal toggle switch uses rugged spring-steel contacts to ensure years of reliable service and performance. Epiphone’s proprietary output jack features an improved contact shape and heavy-duty spring steel to increase reliability and Epiphone's Deluxe 18:1 ratio machine heads making tuning easy and reliable.

    Epiphone Peace of Mind :
    Like every Epiphone, the 1956 Les Paul Standard PRO features a Limited Lifetime Warranty backed by world famous 24/7/365 Gibson Customer Service. History repeats itself—only better--with the Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plustop PRO.

    Smooth and crunchy after a set up .
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    So cool. Binding and Chicago blue finish are perfect. Hardware and electronics are the best yet! After dropping the P90s down and tweeking the poles to sound like love, I balanced both so the middle position is an instant warm tone with volume and tones dimed. Action is like running your fingers across a marble counter top. Beware the factory does not set this up, I tuned mine out of the box and out came the tools but with a little effort this ones a keeper. The pu's love all your distortion pedals, add a compressor and a noise gate you lose track of time playing. Get one while you can.

    Pure Inspiration
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I was kind of stunned the first time I played it. Playing through a VOX 40 watt Valvetronics, this guitar sounds great. The guitar finish is beautiful and the tuners hold rock solid. It's hard to put this baby down. I like the extended treble of the P90's. I'm putting .009's and lowering the action. Everything about this guitar is first class. It sings through the VOX amp, what a combo. Epiphone makes some good looking guitars. A lot of times they make Gibsons look ugly. Well this is the 6th Epiphone I have added to my collection. They are a great value for the money and easy to own on AMS's easy pay plan. Thank you.

    Great guitar for a great price
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Well, the first one I got was damaged; stuff happens...but AMS was very cooperative, & shipped another as soon as they had confirmation that FedEx had received the damaged one. After I put a set of D'Addario Half Round 9's on it, it plays well, & sounds as good as it plays; no fret buzz, & no sharp fret ends. The setup was just right, but I tweaked the bridges a bit anyway, just to suit myself. The P90s sound great, clean and overdriven; especially overdriven. This is my 4th Epi, and I'm sold on the brand. all 4 are well-made, look great, and play & sound as well as I could expect of any guitar.

    Way beyond my expectations
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I currently own two Les Pauls and I have a very decent Fender American Strat as well as a Jem built Ibanez Super Strat. But this Epiphone 56 LP Pro is by far the best sounding guitar I have ever owned. All I had to do is tune it to get that sought after tone that quality P 90s are know for. It was already set up to factory specs. right out of the box. Yet beyond fact that this is a well built and great sounding instrument I just can't get over the price.

    How cool to get a 56 neck and P90s without paying thousands for a Gibson Historic!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    This guitar totally blew my mind! Sure it has a little 60 cycl hum, but the crisp, punchy sustaining tones are to die for. Fit and finish are perfect.mi have to say it, the Chinese are kicking major a$$ in Qingdao! Memphis ain't got much of them, except possible better woods and lacquers...

    Perfect classic Les Paul
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Just recieved my 56 Les Paul today. I love it so far. Ordered it friday and got it on monday. Thats the fastest shipping I have ever had. I also love the no credit check payment plan. American Musical has a new customer for life now after coming through with superior shipping and service. I used to shop at MF and $/;$water but after a few bad experiences there I will do all my business here. The guitar was set up perfect. I only had to tweak the intonation on my g string. When I buy a gibson in the spring I know where to come to order it. I have grown tired of the local music stores who treat you like garbage even after spending thousands of dollars at ther business, that and I love not having to interact with pushy sales people who try to talk down to you because you are not buying a $3,500 dollar guitar. The internet makes it easy to buy what I want without pressure or stress.

    Love this thing, and having fun tweaking it
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Worth the money. If the P-90's are too high, open them up and adjust them. My shims were way too high, but easily fixed. And the P-90's sound terrific. worthwhile purchase.
