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.

Peace of Mind

Like every Epiphone, the Ltd. Edition Genesis Deluxe PRO features a Limited Lifetime Warranty backed by world famous 24/7/365 Gibson Customer Service. Step into the future today with the Ltd. Edition Genesis Deluxe PRO.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "great quality guitar"
Overall: i'm a lefty and flip righty guitar to play. have spent a lifetime playing that way and feeling cheated out of the upper register on most of my guitars except my PRS ce 24. anyhow, i love les pauls but could never find a dc so i've played righty les pauls for years. enter the epi genesis. dual cut, total access for me. that alone would be enough, BUT........this $499 guitar is freakin' unreal. it sounds and plays as good as my $3000 gibby les paul. i kid you not. the fit, finish and tone are to die for. i run all my guitars through my eleven rack into the pa and you cannot tell the epi genesis from the gibson les paul. i did lower the action, change strings and set intonation out of the box. i do this to all my guitars. the pots are scratch free, frets, inlays, etc are PERFECT. how do they do it at this price?
Style of Music: rock, hard rock

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "My sapphire beauty"
Overall: Can't call myself a true guitar player. More of a "practicioner"-one who loves to practice. This Genesis has become the fave axe in my small stable of four (and counting...can't stop...it's a beautiful addiction collecting these here gitars). Played great right out of the box. I suppose I could take her to a tech and get her tweaked a bit; maybe one day I will if I can bear the separation. I haven't even explored the available sonic possibilities much. At present I'm enamored with my random volume/tone settings. I bought a blonde Epi Sheraton last year & I thought she was my true love. Not so. Ms. Genesis is more to my liking in touch & tone. Sorry Sheri. I love Epi's. I'd rather have 3 or 4 Epi's than one Gibson. Personal preference on my spending practices(more bang for the buck).
Style of Music: Rock, blues, jazz, classical. I love playing classical on electric. (Can't help it). My next project is a John Cipollina set up:
