The Min-ETune system is a powerful new tool for guitarists at all levels. The compact battery-powered system tunes your guitar in seconds and can deliver 80-100 tunings on one charge. And now you can get in tune with the legendary Les Paul sound.
Body and neck
The Les Paul Classic-T in Black Cherry finish has a Mahogany body and a glued-in 3-piece hard Maple neck with a 1960s SlimTaper profile for easy transitions between chords and solos. The hand-set neck has the Les Paul’s legendary scale length of 24.75” with 22 medium jumbo frets and a Rosewood fingerboard with “trapezoid” inlays. The Clipped Ear headstock has a 60’s vintage style “Epiphone” logo in pearloid along with the iconic “Les Paul Model” signature in gold silkprint, the same signature that has appeared on every Les Paul since 1952. A special “2014” logo is also on the back of the headstock and the black truss rod cover has “Les Paul Classic-T” in white.
Pickups and electronics
Epiphone’s new CeramicPRO open coil humbucker pickups put a new twist on the legendary Les Paul sound providing the Les Paul Classic-T with a tone that is “tight,” articulate, and powerful, with tremendous strength and clarity that really shines through at high volume. The Min-ETune system is the proven system to keep your guitar tuned to standard pitch as well as open tunings quickly and accurately.
The new Epiphone Les Paul Classic-T gets in tune and stays in tune thanks to the Min-ETune system with vintage style keys with a 40:1 tuning ratio.
