Phil Hunger with the our Epiphone Les Paul Standards

We’ve always got room on the wall for more Paul, and we’re happy to announce two brand new additions from Epiphone. These CME Exclusive Epiphone Inspired By Gibson Series Les Paul Standards come complete with period-correct specs and components, like wider Kalamazoo-style headstocks, and AA-grade flame maple tops that make our CME Exclusive ‘60s Maple Burst Fade and ‘50s Transparent Cherry colorways really pop! A freshly-cut Phil plugs in, taking us through a wormhole in time to where these models began.
