Product Description

Epiphone's Les Paul Express captures the look, sound and feel of their famous LP's but in a slightly smaller package that's perfect for younger players or for travel use. The neck has the same basic dimensions of a full-size guitar but the scale length is only 22 inches as compared to 24.75 inches on a full-size Les Paul.

The result is a guitar that's more comfortable to play - especially for smaller players - while still maintaining good string tension when tuned to standard E.

Great Design Features!
While the new LP-Express is a real Les Paul, Epiphone has incorporated in some unique design features to this small powerhouse. First, while the body is still Mahogany the neck on the Express is Hard Maple as opposed to the traditional Mahogany neck. This gives the guitar a little more high-end bite or brighter tone which effectively offsets the slightly looser string tension due to the shorter scale length.

Additionally, the combination of the fully-adjustable fixed bridge design fits well on the smaller size body while adding sustain and making string changes a breeze. Finally, the neck is bolted in place securely using 4 recessed bolts set making upper fret access easier and very comfortable.

Classic Les Paul Sound
The Les Paul Express features an Epiphone 650R humbucker in the neck position and an Epiphone 700T in the bridge position. Both pickups share the same qualities as Seth Lover's original PAF humbuckers of the late '50s and feature Alnico pickups that give you an infinite variety of tone colors and sounds.

Premium Additions!
With the slightly looser string tension, its even more important to have great machine heads. Epiphone designed the new Express with premium, 14:1 ratio die-cast machine heads to give you excellent tuning accuracy and stability.

Perfect for my "recliner rig"
What is your opinion of this product?
I bought this to play when sittng in my recliner paired with a Zoom G1on and a set of headphones. Worked out great - nice size and light. Fit and finish is about what you would expect in a guitar in this price range with a little fret sprout although not uncomfortable. The weak spot seems to be the tuners, I am going to replace these with kluson style soon, the supplied tuners don't seem to operate very smoothly even after adjusting the tension. A good setup yielded reasonably low action and intonation was in the range of the saddles. I do recommend heavier strings, I'm not sure what guage was supplied but it was quite sensitive to finger pressure altering the tuning, I used a set of D'Adarrio XL 49-11 and that seems to have solved the problem for me. Nice guitar after a couple of minor tweaks and a keeper. Tone is great as well. If you are looking to set up a travel or recliner rig I would recommend this as well as the Zoom G1ON (built in drums and looper).

Well worth the money
What is your opinion of this product?
Even though getting it in "perfect tune" is practically impossible, it is the best sounding, easiest playing and most awesome Slide Guitar(E-Tuning) I have ever played. Love it!

Great little guitar for the price and easy for my Grandson to play
What is your opinion of this product?
With just a little adjustment, on the intonation, it was ready for my Grandson to play. It's the right size for a 9 year old and easy enough to play, that he brings the Les Paul Express and my guitar to me so I can teach him chords. He says it doesn't even hurt his fingers to hold the chords. I would recommend it for any child to learn on, and it's fun for me to play around with also. It stays in tune pretty well.

Good value, for an excellent guitar built for moderately sized persons
What is your opinion of this product?
A very nice guitar for the price. I had thought that this was a 24 inch scale, but it is barely more than 22 . Those inches can mean a lot in terms of the best sound for some music; but apart from a bit of ; typical; string buzz from the low string tension, and a less harmonic-rich tone; add a couple pedals and crank it up, this little guy is fun, and a hell of a deal for such an historic instrument. Nay-sayers can say nay; I say, my shorty Paul does just fine. Very happy, thank you, Epiphone

GREAT LITTLE GUITAR!
What is your opinion of this product?
I bought this guitar to play while sitting in my recliner at night while I watch TV and I couldn't be happier! I knew it wasn't going to be like my other Les Pauls, but I was actually surprised at what a nice quality little guitar it is. it is just a small bodied Les Paul special with the same neck pickups and hardware. It is also very light weight so I find self grabbing it and walking playing it rather than my much heavier full size Les Pauls. Bottom line I would definitely recommend this guitar to anyone looking for a small, light weight, great sounding and playing guitar.

"Not as great as I hoped" bad neck
What is your opinion of this product?
not even one star for this... the neck was bent right out of the box. i know you don't get much for $120.00 but they should make sure the guitar has a straight neck on it... can't stay in tune . impossible
