22 frets
2 Seymour Duncan P90 pickups instead of the original Epiphone pickups (more than potato).
ABR-1 bridge type
Adjustments classic Les Paul tones 2 volumes 2 and 3 switch positions
Set neck profile thin enough for a les paul 56
Beautiful golden finish


Very nice rosewood handle.
Access to treble is a bit limited (LP format requires).
At weight I can not find it heavy tes, I want a trouble-free repeats of 2 hours without harm.
I prefer the Les Paul that forms strato and TV, so my opinion is somewhat biased.
It is very versatile and if we take care to properly adjust it just to have a very good sound


I mainly play blues and old rock, but I try to touch a little different styles.
I play on the marshall Souvant live or through a crybaby.
The sound is quite versatile. P90 mics sounds clear that both saturated. Its clear they permetent sonoritées of jazz and blues very pleasant. Saturation they spot the big rock.
The sonoritées of origin were not evil but the chorus rithmique, the microphone did not sound great acute, not to mention the background noise in saturation. I replaced the original pickups by Duncan P90 with more potato and less noise.


It was my first electric scraper, and I am very happy with my purchase. It's been a year and a half that I played with and it always made me happy. I think this is the best model of Epiphone Les Paul. I comparéavec other models and there is no comparison. Even with the lack of potato micro home, it sounds much better than a conventional or standard.
Meanwhile I was offered a Gibson, but my 56GT is listed. If it again, I repeat no doubt
