August 3, 2011
|<img alt="img" src="/Portals/0/lesuke.jpg" style="width: 348px; height: 141px; float: left; margin-right: 9px; margin-bottom: 9px;" />The ukulele has long been a favorite instrument of guitar players and singers alike, whether it's traditional Hawaiian musicians or rockers like Tom Petty, Eddie Vedder, and George Harrison. Long known for its history of making great Les Paul guitars, Epiphone expands upon that knowledge and experience with the NEW Les Paul Acoustic/Electric Ukulele Outfit. Like a traditional Les Paul Standard, it features a solid mahogany body combined with a AAA grade flame maple top for great tone and great looks. The mahogany neck features a comfortable “D”-profile shape and is bolted onto the body with four-recessed screws for rock-solid stability. The rosewood fingerboard features a concert length 15" scale with 19 silver nickel frets and a 16" fingerboard radius. <br />
Plug it In and Turn It Up! Unplugged, this Les Paul Ukulele has great natural acoustic tone and volume. But plug it in and it really comes alive! It’s equipped with a high-quality, piezo film pickup that’s located under the saddle so both the natural tone of the strings as well as the sound of the body are accurately captured and routed to a durable, all-metal, rim-mounted 1/4" output jack. Plug it into a PA system or amplifier and you get true acoustic tone that can keep up with a band on any stage. <br />
Other Bonus Features! For accurate tuning stability, the Les Paul Ukulele features 14:1 geared machine heads. Unlike traditional "friction" tuners, these tuners have fine-tuning capability and won't slip. The Les Paul Ukulele comes with premium black nylon strings as well as a gig bag with an accessory pocket for easy and safe transportation. And to top it all off, it comes with a classic Les Paul style pickguard that not only looks cool but protects the beautiful flame maple top. <br />
Limited Lifetime Warranty! As with all Epiphone instruments, you can rest assured that your investment is protected with Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Warranty backed by Gibson Musical Instrument's 24/7/365 day Customer Service.
