If you've been wanting to get your hands on classic Les Paul design, tone, and playability, look no further than the new Les Paul Muse. This no-nonsense classically designed Les Paul comes at a great price point and with all the features that have made the Les Paul a sought-after solidbody the world over. The Muse features a lightweight, resonant chambered okoume body with a maple cap and a stunning metallic finish that lets the natural color tone really breathe. An okoume neck with Indian laurel fingerboard offers classic Les Paul playability and feel, and a pair of Alnico Classic Pro humbuckers delivers fat, warm humbucking tone.
The Muse takes you into the sonic wheelhouse of vintage Les Paul tone with the Alnico Classic PRO humbuckers. These traditional Alinco pickups have the tonal colorings of a vintage PAF but with a slightly higher output for a more modern sound. The Alnico-V magnets in these monsters drive the higher output and enhance the mids and highs while still letting plenty of low-end grit come through for when you really want to blow the doors open. And with 2 Volume controls with coil-splitting and treble bleed along with 2 Tone controls with phase switch, the tone-shaping world of these humbuckers is huge and a favorite here at Music Experience.
The Muse is an apt name since this fine electric features the appointments that guitarists recognize as earmarks of classic Les Paul design. Nickel-finished hardware, Clear Speed knobs, and nickel pickup covers give the Muse a spotlight-reflecting stage presence. A LockTone ABR bridge and stop-bar tailpiece provide outstanding tuning and sustain support, and Grover Rotomatic 18:1 tuners are onboard to make tuning smooth, consistent, and rock-solid. The laurel fingerboard is graced with 22 medium jumbo frets for easy chording and leads, and vintage trapezoid inlays provide a classic aesthetic!.
The new Inspired by Gibson™ Epiphone Les Paul™ Modern incorporates many contemporary updates that players have embraced such as a lighter-weight body and innovative SlimTaper™ neck with an asymmetrical profile. The neck/body joint features the new Modern contoured heel for effortless access to the highest frets as well as maximum sustain and stability. Upgrades include an ebony fretboard, Grover® locking Rotomatic® tuners, Graph Tech® nut, clear Top Hat knobs, and ProBucker™ pickups. The control assembly features the treble bleed circuit to keep your highs sparkling when turning your volume down, 3 push-pull pots to switch between the humbucker™ and the single-coil sounds, and phase switching for the most versatile and sonic variety. The new Epiphone Les Paul Modern is here to shape the sound for future generations. Available in Vintage Sparkling Burgundy, Graphite Black, and Faded Pelham Blue finishes.
