Limited Edition 50th Anniversary "1960" Les Paul Standard Outfit (Version-3)

Initially, the 1960 Les Paul initially carried over the same basic specifications as its predecessor from 1959. However, by the latter part of the year the specifications were changed. The most significant change was the new "SlimTaper" neck profile that was slimmer and considered "more modern" than the fatter 1959 profile. The "new" SlimTaper neck profile can be found on Epiphone's new "Version-3" 50th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul and went on to be the neck used on Les Pauls throughout the 1960's. As with the 1959 and all Les Paul's thereafter, the Version-3 is equipped with flatter, wider frets that allow more dramatic bends. The impact of that change was not truly realized until the 1960's when rock and blues players discovered the magical fat, warm voice and feel of the Les Paul Standard. And with a history going back to the 1940's when Les Paul himself would visit the Epiphone factory in New York and work on what has come to be known as the FIRST electric guitar, this Limited Edition also pays homage to not only the beginning of the 1960's but also to the man that started it all. Premium Components and Authentic Features: Epiphone's Les Paul Standard has been a favorite guitar for years and years. Starting with the same successful recipe, Epiphone significantly "steps it up" on this Limited Edition "1960" reissue. True to it's heritage, the neck features a (Version-3) authentic, SlimTaper(tm) neck profile. Often considered the standard for a slim and fast yet comfortable neck, the SlimTaper soon became a favorite for rock and blues players of the 1960's. Epiphone hand fits this solid Mahogany neck into the body with an historically accurate "deep-set" long neck tenon that extends well into the neck pickup cavity creating even more tone and sustain. As is traditional with Les Paul Standards, the back of the body is solid Mahogany while the...
