Epiphone Limited-Edition 50th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul V3 Electric Guitar w/ Case

Version 3

Epiphone is proud to introduce the Ltd Ed "1960" Les Paul Standard honoring 50 years of perhaps the most beloved electric guitar of modern times. The Epiphone 1960 Les Paul Standard comes in three distinct colors, Heritage Sunburst (Version 1), Cherry Sunburst (Version 3) and Heritage Darkburst (Version 3)

The 1960 Les Paul initially carried over the same basic specifications as its predecessor from 1959. Among these details were the full, rounded "D" shaped neck profile, top-hat control knobs, and Heritage Sunburst finish. These characteristics can be found in Epiphone's new "Version-1" of the 50th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul Standard.

However, by the latter part of 1960, several key specifications were changed. The most significant change was the new SlimTaper™ “D” neck profile that was slimmer and considered "more modern" than the fatter 1959 profile. The "new" SlimTaper neck profile went on to become the standard neck on Les Pauls throughout the 1960s and can be found on Epiphone's "Version-3" of 50th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul in both Cherry Sunburst and Heritage Darkburst.

Both versions were equipped with flatter, wider frets that allow for more dramatic bends. The impact of that change was not truly realized until the 1960's when rock and blues players like Fleetwood Mac’s Peter Green, Michael Bloomfield, Duane Allman, and Eric Clapton discovered the magical voice and feel of the Les Paul Standard. And since our history with Les Paul goes back to the 1940's when Les would work late hours at the Epiphone factory in New York to perfect "The Log", the first solid body electric guitar, we made sure our Limited Edition pays homage to the man that started it all.

Case included.
