Built around the original 1956 specification, the new Epiphone Ltd Ed 1956 Les Paul Standard Goldtop is heavily equipped with classic Les Paul appointments including gold top finish, traditional body shape, cream pickguard, single coil pickups, retro control knobs and many more.

Each pickup has independent volume and tone controls for achieving the perfect sound.
