Epiphone Les Paul Express

The Epiphone LP-Express electric guitar captures the look, sound, and feel, of their famous Les Paul guitars but in a slightly smaller package that is perfect for travel use, for guitarists more comfortable on a small guitar, even younger players. The neck has the same basic dimensions as a full-size guitar but the scale length is only 22" as compared to 24-3/4" on a full-size Les Paul. The result is an incredibly comfortable electric guitar that maintains good string tension when tuned to standard E.


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.

Premium Additions
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.
