Epi 59 LP Standard vs LP Standard


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I love the looks of the 59 anniversary model of the Les Paul Standard that I've seen on this site and on others. And, it's a good price for a good playing, well-made instrument with a bit of historical mojo thrown into the mix. At least that's the way I see it!


Has anyone compared a '59 model with a 'normal' LP Standard by Epiphone? I have a 1996 model in Honeyburst which is rather gorgeous and plays well, though I think the pups are a bit weak. In all other areas it shines.


Would there be noticeable differences between it and the '59 model, and if so, where would they be? Sound quality? Finish quality? Material quality?


Just looking for info. Thanks in advance,
