Epiphone Les Paul Studio LT - Heritage Cherry Sunburst
The Les Paul Studio E1's classic Les Paul power comes from two Zebra Coil Ceramic Humbuckers. Owners of vintage Les Paul's often remove their pickup covers for a better bass response and magnetic pull, revealing the black & white (zebra) bobbins underneath. Ceramic pickups have a higher output than vintage Alnico magnet pickups and are designed to provide a tight low-end response with both a smooth mid-range and a slightly more pronounced top end tone. Ceramic magnets have been a favourite of metal and hard rock guitarists for decades. The Les Paul Studio LT has a 650R in the rhythm position and a 700T in the lead position. Controls include volume and tone for each pickup and an all-metal 3-way pickup selector.
