The Epiphone Les Paul Modern takes everything you love about the Les Paul and kicks it up a notch. Featuring a weight-relieved mahogany body, ripping pickups, and versatile switching options, there are tons of reasons to like this guitar. The Asymmetrical SlimTaper neck profile will please you with its comfortable shape and contoured heel joint, while a pair of ProBucker pickups with coil-splitting and phase switching abilities unlock a wide variety of classic and modern tones. Completed by locking tuners, the Epiphone Les Paul Modern is perfect for the player who enjoys the classic look of a Les Paul but demands modern versatility.
The Epiphone Les Paul Modern is outfitted with a mahogany neck with an Asymmetrical SlimTaper neck profile. Guitar players around Music Experience note that the neck has a "D" shape on the bass side and a flat "C" shape on the treble side. It will comfortably fill your hand no matter whether you play thumb-over or thumb-behind. As you work your way up the neck, you'll have total access to the upper frets, thanks to the contoured heel joint.
The Epiphone Les Paul Modern is outfitted with two Epiphone ProBuckers. These pickups are a modern re-creation of the legendary PAF humbucker and feature the same Alnico II magnets. Characterized by their rich, warm tones and tight bottom end, Epiphone ProBuckers are sure to meet almost any player's need. The Les Paul Modern also has extra switching options that make this an axe of all trades. You get coil splitting, phase inversion, and treble bleed, controlled by push-pull volume and tone pots. These extra options give you a nearly infinite amount of sounds to choose from. From single-coil spank to high output humbucker shred, the Epiphone Les Paul Modern has the tone for you.
