This Epiphone Les Paul 1956 Pro is a fantastic, economical alternative to the Gibson Custom Shop VOS '56 Les Paul. Besides being close to only 1/10 the cost of the Gibson, this Epi 56 Pro also serves up the same heaping gobs of fat, greasy, vintage P-90 tone as its big brother. I've heard P-90 powered Les Pauls described as fat Telecasters. Sure, if your Tele has a membership to Gold's Gym, is nicknamed "The Siberian Express" and took Rocky the full 15 rounds. The primary difference between the Tele and the Les Paul is that the Epi 56 would have tap danced all over Rocky's ass and played the Sandman by putting him to sleep in the 1st round. But, I digress. Besides being an "Ivan Drago" sized heavyweight in the tone department, it's a virtual lightweight on your shoulder. How about 8.0 lbs. even? It also has a 60's slim taper "C" neck profile and low, slinky action built for welterweight speed. This guitar shows some light play wear in the form of swirling, light clear coat scratches (hey, it's black) and some impressions. There's only some light fret wear evident.  This is a great, great guitar. Fun with attitude!
