Product Description

One of Epiphone's most original and modern designs, the Epiphone Genesis was first published in the Epiphone catalog in late 1979 and was viewed as a great era in Epiphone instruments. The Epiphone LE Genesis Deluxe PRO Electric Guitar puts this collector's favorite back into the limelight with a beautiful AAA flame maple veneer top and solid mahogany body and Epiphone ProBucker pickups that utilize Coil-Tapping for a variety of tomes not previously offered on the Genesis of the past.

A bold instrument with a warm sound that can do anything from hard rock to fusion jazz, the Genesis was part of Epiphone's longstanding tradition of giving players more for their money at a level of quality and consistency other guitar makers can't maintain.

AAA Flame Maple Top and Futuristic Features

The Epiphone LE Genesis Deluxe PRO features a solid mahogany body with a AAA quilt maple veneer top that delivers the classic tone and sustain that made the Genesis stand out in a crowd. The double cutaway body features 1-ply cream binding on the top for a beautiful vintage look. The mahogany neck has a 24.75 inch scale with a 12 inch radius and features the player favorite 1960s SlimTaper D-profile along with a glued-in neck joint for lifelong stability. The rosewood fingerboard comes with pearloid trapezoid inlays, 22 medium-jumbo frets and a 1.68 inch nut along with single ply cream binding along the fingerboard.

Epiphone ProBucker Humbuckers with Coil-Tapping

The original Genesis model featured coil-tapping via a small mini toggle. However, the original Genesis did not allow for coil-tapping each individual pickup. Now, the Epiphone LE Genesis Deluxe PRO zooms into the 21st century with ProBucker pickups with coil-tapping on both the rhythm and lead pickups.

ProBucker pickups feature Alnico II magnets, the same magnets used in sought-after vintage PAF humbuckers. Alnico II magnets provide a rich, warm tone with a sparkling high end and a solid low end. The Ltd. Edition Genesis Deluxe PRO features a ProBucker 2 in the neck position and a ProBucker 3 in the bridge position.

The ProBucker 3 is slightly overwound to provide balance with the neck pickup with an added bit of edge for lead work. ProBuckers emulate the sound of original PAF pickups which were hand-wound with a few extra turns of wire. Both of the Ltd. Ed. Genesis PRO's pickups feature coil-tapping, which is activated by a push/pull volume speed knob control, allowing players an infinite variety of pickups sounds from single-coil bark to full humbucker bite.

When winding humbuckers, Epiphone utilizes a double vacuum waxing process that ensures quiet operation, free from microphonic hum. The pickup is first placed in the specialized wax vacuuming system before the cover is placed on the unit to ensure that the wax fully penetrates to the very center of the pickup and solidifies all parts. After the cover is placed on, it is again given a second vacuum wax bath until the unit is completely saturated with wax.

Epiphone uses only the highest quality parts for its pickups, such as ABS plastic bobbins, 1010 Cold Rolled Steel pole shoes and pole screws, Alnico magnets and the finest magnet wire available.

A Classic Made to Last a Lifetime

The Epiphone LE Genesis Deluxe PRO features Epiphone's legendary rock-solid gold hardware including a LockTone Tune-o-matic fully adjustable bridge and a Stopbar tailpiece. And now, Epiphone's updated, patent pending design auto locks the bridge and tailpiece in place with no tools needed! This also results in improved sustain. The Epiphone LE Genesis Deluxe PRO uses 1 inch diameter potentiometers for better 'throw', longer life and reliable service. Epiphone's all-metal toggle switches use rugged spring-steel contacts to ensure years of reliable service and performance. Epiphone's proprietary output jack features an improved contact shape and heavy-duty spring steel to increase reliability and gold Grover 18:1 machine heads on a classic '60s era Epiphone Sloped Dovewing headstock to ensure tuning stability and long life.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (9 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "For $499 you get a tremendous amount of guitar. An original Epiphone design well worth it's price."
Overall: The quality of this guitar is outstanding. The AAA top and Vintage Sunburst finish are gorgeous. The weight is pretty close to my Les Paul Standard, and access to the upper fretboard is as good as my G400 or Wilshire, where the body joins the neck at the 22nd fret, but this is much sturdier in the joint area. The neck is attached to the body at the eighteenth fret and sports a Slim Taper D Shape and a volute that strengthens the neck at the headstock. The body and neck binding and fret dressing are flawless. The fretmarkers are smooth and well fitted. The Probuckers are the best pickups Epiphone has ever made. Rich, round, throaty Humbucker tones. Thin, precise, barking tones in the coil split mode. I was slow to embrace coil splitting but I now have three guitars with the feature and find it a very useful tool for tone shaping, and this baby has bucketloads of tone and sustain, like a Les Paul. Hard to beat the combination of mahogany, maple and rosewood.
Style of Music: I play mostly blues, some rock.
