Gearank Recommendation

The Epiphone Les Paul Studio 2011 appeared on our recommended list for Solidbody Electric Guitars Under $500 from March 2019 until June 2020.


The Epiphone Les Paul Studio is a streamlined version of the Gibson Les Paul, used by greats like Slash, Jimmy Page, Zakk Wylde and many more - only this one is lighter and cheaper.

Gone are the fancy bindings and metal pickup covers, but it retains essential Les Paul specifications, including its single-cutaway body, arched top design, and dual humbucker setup.

For improved tuning accuracy and stability, this guitar comes with 18:1 ratio Grover machine heads.

It was available in three colors allowing you to choose between Ebony, Wine Red and Turquoise finish.


  • Body: Mahogany
  • Finish: Ebony, Wine Red and Turquoise
  • Bridge: Locktone Tune-o-matic and Stopbar Tailpiece
  • Pickups: Epiphone Alnico Classic Open-Coil Humbuckers
