EPIPHONE LES PAUL SIGNATURE GOLDTOP. This is a 1998 Epiphone Les Paul Signature that is based on the Gibson model that was made in the early/mid 70's.
It has a very unique look that combines the body of a hollow ES-330 (Casino) with a lower cutaway from a Les Paul. The body is semi-hollow with a very small center block that sits right under the bridge and stoptail.
This thing resonates like crazy. Great for blues, jazz or even rock.A more resonant Les Paul type of sound. The goldtop finish is flawless. Rear of the guitar is a lovely maroon color that also covers the back of the neck and headstock. This guitar was made in the very highly regarded Korean Peerless factory. The most notable user of the Gibson model is Michael Ward (The Wallflowers, School Of Fish). On the surface it looks like a 335 style guitar but because the body joins the neck at the 16th fret it feels more compact like a Les Paul. The overall length is extremely comfortable. Neck seems to be a bit larger than the typical 60's slim profile. Has a single master volume and tone control. The pickups are low-impedance and make use of a small transformer with multiple output taps with different impedances. There is a 3-way rotary switch to select 50, 250 or 500 ohm outputs which vary in output level and tonality. It works similar to a Varitone without the tone suck and weight. With all of these options there are loads of great tones available. Recently upgraded with Gibson Deluxe Tuners (as pictured). The guitar is in excellent shape, very clean with only 2 flaws that I noticed. There is a small chip at the top of the headstock towards the back. There is also what appears to be a very small chip that was repaired on the back of the neck. Hardly noticeable in the pics and not something you feel with your hand while playing. Very recently setup and intonated with Fender 11-49 strings for low action and excellent tone. Comes with original Epiphone hardshell case and Schaller style straplocks. If you're looking for a great playing, RARE and UNIQUE, yet affordable guitar, this is it.
