  • Comments from customers who bought this item:

Being one of about ten retailers across Europe to be a designated Epiphone Club members Gear4Music have the pleasure of bringing you the Epiphone 1956 Les Paul Standard Chicago Blue which is a limited edition Les Paul only available for a limited time at exclusive Epiphone retailers.

The Epiphone 1956 Les Paul Standard Chicago Blue incorporates an innovative locking tune-o-matic bridge and tail piece system which eliminates a problem every guitarist who uses a tune-o-matic bridge will have encountered which is the lack of stability when the strings are removed which causes the bridge/tailpiece to fall off and minor unwanted adjustments to the bridge height to be made. However the Locktone tune-o-matic bridge and tailpiece makes that a thing of the past, with high tension springs fitted into the attachments the bridge now clips and locks into place without the use of tools and also increases sustain by up to twenty percent.

Constructed from a solid fully mahogany body for a deeper and fuller tone the Epiphone 1956 Les Paul Standard, Chicago Blue also incorporates a mahogany neck which has been carefully designed and hand fitted in a glued-in fashion to allow the maximum transfer of vibrations between the body and neck to produce larger sustain and resonance.
