Epiphone's history with the legendary guitarist and innovator Les Paul dates back to the early 1940's when Les, working late at night at the Epiphone factory on 14th St. in New York City, created what might have been the world's first solid-body electric guitar, better known as "The Log." Over the years, Les continued to work closely with Epiphone by reviewing new product ideas and offering suggestions. “Epiphone always made a good guitar,” Les liked to say fondly.
The Les Paul Studio was an important innovation of Les Paul’s classic dream guitar. As the name implies, the Les Paul Studio was geared toward studio musicians who desired a basic, unadorned Les Paul that weighed less than vintage Standard models. Introduced in the early ‘80s, the Les Paul Studio instantly became a favorite for Les Paul lovers of all ages. The Epiphone Goth Les Paul Studio offers Les Paul fans a classic favorite with a fantastic dark Goth look.
