    Epiphone Joe Bonamassa 'Lazarus' 59 Les Paul Standard Owners Thread

    I agree, nothing wrong with that guitar at all.

    Up and coming bands are choosing Fenders over Les Pauls (and other Gibson models).

    You got that right... I paid $600 for my first car and $700 for my second car in High School. The first car was a little 1970 Ford Capri foreign job, when Capri's were made for Europe and such. It got tipped over at a crazy party one night by the Football Players getting rowdy. Haha.

    Yep, Ace and Jimmy Page back in the late 70's early 80's for me!

    the 5 levels of Les Paul

    I do need to correct myself though and that is from listening to the video that he states that the Studio has the same pickups as the Tribute, which is close but off just a little bit. The Studio does come with the 490R/498T pickup combination which is a good combination of pickups. It is the...

    How much was a new Standard Les Paul 15-20 years ago?

    I was 15 years old in 1980 and a Les Paul Standard was $849. Too rich for my blood, I had a Hondo II Les Paul Standard copy in Wine Red for $200 and it was total bad ass. I was only 15 and had no idea about the Les Paul Standard being an Iconic guitar. I did know that Jimmy Page played a Les...

    Maybe they don't want to take their nice Les Paul to the Festival, use a nice light more inexpensive guitar to jump around on stage with. The festival crowds can get pretty rowdy and you gotta watch your gear.

    the 5 levels of Les Paul

    You are correct on that, but I don't think those are major enough to warrant $400. The Studio should really come with better pickups like the BB 61's or BB 2/3's. I think the Tribute is still definitely the better buy between the Studio and the Tribute IMO.

    the 5 levels of Les Paul

    I chose a 2022 Les Paul Classic Exclusive from Gibson, only $2299, very close to the Standard 60's specs, but with coil tapping and just an overall fantastic guitar.

    Epiphone Joe Bonamassa 'Lazarus' 59 Les Paul Standard Owners Thread

    I just scrolled up and looked at your guitar again, it is super sweet, I would take that all day long for sure. Such a great playing/feeling guitar, you got to give it a try. Mine was great and after taking it to the Luthier for a fret dressing/professional setup, it was just perfect, such a...

    Epiphone Joe Bonamassa 'Lazarus' 59 Les Paul Standard Owners Thread

    Nothing wrong with that one at all, very nice. Take the $200 off and run, you are very lucky. You can re-sell that if you end up not bonding with it, easily for $1000-$1200. We need more :photos: from all different angles.

    Looking for Lazarus

    I converted my Lazarus to a Slash AFD but can easily be switched back to a Standard Lazarus. What does it matter though, just an overall excellent guitar from Epiphone. The top does make for a good AFD though.

    Looking for Lazarus

    I am seeing that the $3000 Lazarus is not for sale anymore, it just states that the gear is no longer there, not sure if that means it sold. Haha I am also seeing that the Joe B. BB's from 2020 are going for $2500-$2800.
