Product Description

The Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro -- lovingly known as the "Tuxedo" Les Paul -- now comes dressed to kill in a limited-edition '60s TV Pelham Blue finish. Loaded with coil-tappable ProBucker Pickups, the Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro has never looked or sounded better!

Les Paul's Les Paul Custom

The Les Paul Custom made its debut in 1954 after the initial success of the Les Paul Goldtop. Mr. Les Paul himself wanted to convey to audiences that the solid body electric guitar was not a fad but a superb and challenging instrument and that his signature axe, the Les Paul, was the king of all electric solid body guitars. So, Les requested a Les Paul with a custom color finish in solid black and solid white with gold hardware that would blend well with a tuxedo. The result was the Les Paul Custom, or the "tuxedo" Les Paul, as it became known among fans. The Les Paul Custom quickly became one of the most recognized guitars in the world and Les himself used his Les Paul Custom in concert, on his weekly television show with wife Mary Ford and on his album covers, including his famous duet with pal Chet Atkins, Chester and Lester. Now with Epiphone's superior ProBucker humbucker pickups with coil-tapping along with the Custom's classic gold hardware, fully bound body, neck and headstock, and mother-of-pearl inlays, the Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO is "dressed to kill."

Great Tonewoods, Classic Les Paul Sound

While all Les Pauls share common design features, the Les Paul Custom distinguished itself from the Les Paul Standard and Les Paul Goldtop with a solid mahogany body. The Les Paul Custom PRO carries on that tradition but with the added twist of a maple veneer top, which adds a subtle "bite" to the Les Paul Custom's legendary tone. Just like Les' personal Custom, the Les Paul Custom PRO has a solid mahogany neck with a 24.75" scale that's hand-fitted with a glued-in joint for optimum neck-to-body contact, which allows the Les Paul Custom PRO to resonate as one solid piece of wood. The rosewood fingerboard features mother-of-pearl block inlays and has a 12" radius, a 1.68" nut and 22 medium-jumbo frets. The mahogany neck has a very comfortable and super fast SlimTaperTM "D" profile, the most popular profile found on today's Les Pauls. The Custom PRO also features beautiful 5-ply (white/black) binding around the maple veneer top and the back along with single-ply cream binding around the body. The classic rosewood fingerboard is bound in white and the clipped dovewing headstock features 5-ply (white/black) binding along with a '50s era/Custom-style "split diamond" mother-of-pearl inlay and, of course, a vintage "Epiphone" logo in mother-of-pearl. The Kalamazoo-era bell-shaped truss rod cover features "Les Paul Custom PRO" in white silkscreen in tribute to Les' timeless design. The Les Paul Custom PRO comes in Alpine White and Ebony.

ProBucker Humbucker Power

The Les Paul Custom PRO now features Epiphone's ProBucker pickups, a 4-wire design with coil-tapping inspired by Gibson's legendary BurstBuckers. ProBuckerTM pickups recreate the sound of the original hand-wound "PAF" humbuckers made by Seth Lover at the Kalamazoo factory in the late '50s. Epiphone ProBuckersTM feature all the same ingredients as original PAF and BurstBucker pickups, including Alnico II magnets, Elektrisola magnet wire, 18% nickel silver unit bases and covers, and pole screws, slugs and bobbins manufactured to Gibson's original specifications. The result is a phenomenal pickup that, over time, will develop the subtle, one-of-a-kind characteristics that you can only get from vintage humbuckers. And best of all, those unique pickup characteristics will give your guitar a unique "voice."

No two vintage Les Pauls sound alike and ProBuckers give your Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO a one-of-a-kind sound that will get better the more you play. So plan on playing your Les Paul Custom PRO a lot! The Les Paul Custom PRO includes a ProBucker-2 humbucker in the neck position that is slightly overwound for greater definition at higher volumes. The bridge pickup is a ProBucker-3 humbucker, which is also slightly overwound to give your solos a wide tonal range. Each pickup features coil-tapping via a push/pull control at each pickup's volume knob, which really gives the Les Paul Custom Pro the ability to be any guitar you can imagine. All volume and tone controls feature full-size 500K Ohm potentiometers matched with Epiphone's rugged, all-metal, 3-way toggle pickup selector switch for long-lasting performance.

Unbeatable Epiphone Hardware

Epiphone's reputation for great guitars extends to its unbeatable hardware and the Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO delivers with a standard-setting gold LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and a gold Stopbar tailpiece for superb tuning stability. Both the Alpine White and Ebony models feature gold hardware, including gold Grover(R) machine heads with a 14:1 ratio.

Lifetime Guarantee

Like all Epiphone instruments, the Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO comes with a Lifetime Limited Warranty and Gibson's one-of-a-kind 24/7/365 Customer Service. Go all out with a Les Paul Custom PRO.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Epiphone L.E. Les Paul Custom Pro"
Overall: I was concerned when ordering my new Les Paul because I had read such scary reviews online about the new "TV Worn" finishes, (Pellham Blue), but I took my chances and very very pleased that I did, I could not believe just how beautiful itis in person, the pictures do this finish no justice whatsoever! Upon receiving the guitar, I checked it for any damage....none, I was pleased with the feel of the neck, even the basic setup was adequate (for the moment). The coil-tapped/alnico II pickups are one of the main reasons I decided to buy this guitar. I normally play a Fender Strat, but this guitar truly is a Tone Monster!! Jazz, Blues, Rock, Metal, and yes....with the humbuckers in "split coil" mode, you even have a great Country Chicken Pickin' guitar. I couldn't be happier with my decision to buy the 'Custom Pro" model. Zzounds Customer Service dept. is above reproach in my book, they handled the shipping claim (2 guitars arrived damaged) immediately and without question, a great crew to deal with. I haven't needed Manufacturer support but I don't expect too either, but I feel confident in satisfactory results if the need presents itself, So I rated them 5 stars.
Style of Music: Country, Classic/Southern Rock, Blues.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "TV Pelham Blue Les Paul Custom"
Overall: The guitar played good out of the box. Had to adjust the saddle a little, it was slightly high on the top strings. That was a quick and easy fix. I had to change the strings right away because the one's that were on it sucked. Overall build quality was good, except for the truss rod sticks out of the cutout a little too high so it makes the cover bulge out a little. I can overlook that I guess. Pickups are just ok, the bridge doesn't sound as good as the neck does. The bridge pickup seems to be a little thin and weak. The coil taps are fine, they sound good so far. I'm sure I'll get some quality pickups eventually.
Style of Music: Rock, Christian
