The Epiphone Les Paul 100 (LP-100) is a solid body electric guitar first produced in 1993[2] and is based on the Gibson Les Paul. This budget priced, Gibson-authorized version of the Les Paul model, originally introduced with a carved maple top by Jim "Epi" Rosenberg at NAMM 1993, is made as a guitar with beginner and value minded consumers in mind.[3] The Les Paul 100 is outwardly very similar to the original Les Pauls. It has a traditionally shaped, single cut mahogany body, thinner than most Les Paul models, with two tone controls, two volume controls and the three position Rhythm/Treble switch. It also sports a stopbar tailpiece and Tune-o-matic bridge, like the higher end models.[1]

The main difference with the Les Pauls is the guitar's mahogany bolt-on neck, as opposed to the set-in neck normally found on Les Pauls and other Gibson guitars. The fingerboard also sports dot inlays instead of the Les Paul's Trapezoid inlays.[1]

The LP-100 currently comes with open coil 700T & 650R Ceramic humbucker pickups.[1]

There have been several variations of the LP-100 model, Including the LP-100 Studio, Standard (Japan), Studio-Standard (flame-top) and Deluxe (gold hardware).
