Body Structure

The Epiphone Les Paul Plustop Pro has a single solid body cutaway which is made out of solid wood. The top wood is made of curved maple, and the body is made of mahogany. The neck is shaped like a slim tamper, and the joint is set-in with a length of 24.75 inches. The fret board is made of rosewood with a radius of 12 inches with 12 frets. It has the advantage of having a lifetime warranty backed by Gibson’s 24/7/365 customer service. So if one encounters a problem, they will have it attended to without fail.

The guitar is one of a kind. It is preferred by many musicians since it is comfortable to use especially while playing for long hours. The tone level is very excellent making its sound so glorious, which when strung, produces a brilliant sound that has a good feel. Its pickup is medium to low output which makes it excellent to use on any occasion. It has the best stability especially the neck which rarely goes out of tune, and it intonates well. It’s a perfect companion to the Classics. In this Epiphone Les Paul Plustop Pro review, I will state that it has overwound for a slightly higher output without sacrificing its rich, vintage tone. It takes advantage of the push/pull potentiometers on the two volume controls which combine with the 3-way toggle and gives the best eight killer tone in one model of the guitar.

Pros and cons of Epiphone Les Paul Plustop Pro

The fret board makes it so fun to play the guitar and also fun to handle the fret board. Whenever you play, it instantly transitions from medium to low. It is also easy to tune to your liking for easy playing especially while playing a variety of song genres. When it comes to the look, it’s amazing to a craftsman’s dream. With the mahogany and maple, this makes it stand out in a class of its own. The fret board itself is a work of art made of rosewood and finished with a shiny vintage look. The bridge pickup is fantastic which is a Probucker 3. It includes uneven wound coils which are slightly over the wound and has an A2 magnet. This makes the sound produced to be both crunchy and sweet, with the split being terrific.

Although the guitar is good, it cannot be perfect from the factory. Its intonation is not that good due to the uneven frets. The nuts too are not cut well which causes it to be uneven. The .32 string does not intonate well and may need replacement with a better string like, for example, .45.
