Here is the info on the guitar:

A classic instrument made with vintage specs.
The Epiphone Limited Edition 1959 Les Paul Standard brings back the legendary guitar that shaped the sound of rock and roll, now updated with period-correct hardware and electronics. Its mahogany body capped with gorgeous AAA flame maple provides the rich, resonant tone Les Paul is known for. The mahogany neck has a rounded medium-C profile for comfort and classic feel. With Gibson Burstbucker humbucking pickups, CTS potentiometers, Mallory capacitors and '50s wiring, the Epiphone 1959 Les Paul Standard nails the iconic sound of the original, ready to unleash screaming leads and crunchy riffs.

Gibson Burstbucker Pickups Capture the Essence of 1959
The Epiphone 1959 Les Paul Standard comes loaded with Gibson Burstbucker pickups for authentic PAF-style humbucking tone. From warm, rounded lows to articulate mids and singing highs, these pickups recreate the sound of vintage '59 Les Pauls in all their glory. The bridge Burstbucker provides plenty of bite for searing leads and aggressive crunch, while the neck Burstbucker delivers smooth, mellow tones perfect for blues and jazz. With Alnico II magnets and uneven windings, Burstbuckers bring you closer than ever to the powerful, nuanced tone of the late '50s.

Vintage-Style Components Bring Out the Guitar's Voice
To complete the vintage vibe, the Epiphone 1959 Les Paul Standard features '50s wiring with CTS potentiometers and Mallory capacitors. This recreates the original electronics configuration for dynamic, interactive tone shaping compared to modern wiring schemes. Whether you want to fatten up the neck pickup or brighten the bridge pickup, every turn of the volume and tone knobs brings noticeable changes. Vintage-style deluxe Tulip keys provide precise tuning stability. The LockTone tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece anchor strings solidly for rock-solid intonation.

Bound Mahogany Body and Neck Looks Stunning
The Epiphone 1959 Les Paul Standard comes exquisitely bound in top-grade materials for good looks to match its impressive tone. The body's mahogany back is topped with a carved maple cap with gorgeous AAA flame maple veneer. The mahogany neck has a comfortable rounded C medium profile, topped with an Indian laurel fingerboard. Aged binding on the body, neck and headstock completes the vintage appointments. Available in Aged Dark Cherry Burst and Aged Heritage Cherry Sunburst gloss finishes, this Les Paul looks as good as it sounds.

Includes Period-Correct Hardshell Case
The Epiphone 1959 Les Paul Standard comes protected in a vintage-style hardshell case. With a pink-lined interior and brown tolex covering, this "Lifton style" case safely transports your guitar to gigs and sessions. The case's latches, handle and bumpers are built to last, keeping your prized Les Paul safe during travels near and far.
