Epiphone Les Paul Express
Great Design Features
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 with a string-through body 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 into a tapered heel making upper fret access easier and very comfortable.
With the slightly looser string tension, it's even more important to have great tuners. Epiphone designed the Les Paul Express guitar with premium, 14:1 ratio die-cast tuners to give you excellent tuning accuracy and stability. As a bonus, a custom Express-sized padded gig bag is included with every guitar making it the perfect travel guitar.
