Product Description

The left-handed Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro is instantly recognizable for its defining custom-line good looks and features. Underneath that gleaming outfit, however, is a guitar that can really let loose.

Elegant "Tuxedo" Les Paul Looks

Les Paul himself conceived the idea of a Custom line of his signature instrument back in 1954. With its classy looks, the Les Paul Custom guitar came to be known as the model that looked good with a tuxedo. Epiphone's Les Paul Custom Pro continues that tradition of elegance with appointments like the signature custom headstock inlay and binding around the guitar's body, headstock, and neck. The guitar is all-mahogany, from its body to its neck, with a maple veneer top. Its set neck is capped with a rosewood fretboard. The Les Paul Custom Pro has elegant nickel hardware to match its out-on-the-town vibe, including a unique all-metal 3-way pickup selector switch.

See and hear the right-handed version in this zZounds exclusive video:


A Dressed-Up Rocker

Sparkle and flash aside, a Les Paul Custom's sound has to set it apart from the pack. The Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro delivers on this front through its coil-tappable Epiphone ProBucker pickups in the bridge and neck positions. Inspired by Gibson's BurstBucker pickups, ProBuckers are constructed with unevenly wound coils and Alnico 2 magnets, to deliver a sound reminiscent of legendary Gibson Patent-Applied-For humbuckers.

Full of Modern Upgrades

The Les Paul Custom Pro does stray from its predecessors by sporting a slim taper D-profile neck. This is a more slender neck than classic Les Pauls and many prefer it for fast fretboard runs and easier chord changes. Epiphone tweaked the classic Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar design with the LockTone mode featured on the Les Paul Custom Pro. This combination improves sustain and tuning stability by locking the stopbar onto its posts.

Features:

- Mahogany body
- Mahogany slim taper D profile neck
- Rosewood fretboard
- 22 medium-jumbo frets
- Epiphone ProBucker pickups in bridge and neck positions
- All-metal 3-way toggle switch
- Neck volume, neck tone, bridge volume, and bridge tone controls
- Locktone Tune-O-Matic bridge/stopbar for improved sustain
- Gold hardware
- 7-layer body, 5-layer headstock, and 1-layer fretboard binding
- Grover 16:1 ratio tuning machine heads

Sling on a snazzy left-handed Les Paul Custom Pro and get ready to rock in style -- tuxedo optional.

Product Description

The Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro left-handed electric guitar brings you the dressed up looks of the Les Paul Custom with additional features including Epiphone's superior ProBucker humbuckers with coil-tapping for huge sonic possibilities! The lefty Les Paul Custom Pro also brings you classic gold hardware, fully bound body, neck and headstock, and pearloid inlays, for a look that is 'dressed to kill.'

Body

The left handed Les Paul Custom Pro from Epiphone features a solid mahogany body with the added twist of a maple veneer top, which adds a subtle 'bite' to the Les Paul Custom's legendary tone. The Epiphone Custom Pro lefty 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.

Neck

Just like Les' personal Custom, the lefty Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro guitar has a solid mahogany neck with a 24.75-inch scale that's hand-fitted with a glued-in joint for optimum neck-to-body contact, which allows the lefty handed Les Paul Custom Pro to resonate as one solid piece of wood. The rosewood fingerboard features pearloid block inlays and has a 12-inch radius, a 1.68 inch nut and 22 medium-jumbo frets.

The mahogany neck has a very comfortable and super fast SlimTaper D profile, the most popular profile found on today's Les Pauls. 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 pearloid inlay and, of course, a vintage 'Epiphone' logo in pearloid. The Kalamazoo-era bell-shaped truss rod cover features 'Les Paul Custom Pro' in white silkscreen in tribute to Les' timeless design.

Classic Electronics

The Les Paul Custom Pro features Epiphone's ProBucker pickups, a 4-wire design with coil-tapping inspired by Gibson's legendary BurstBuckers. ProBucker pickups recreate the sound of the original hand-wound 'PAF' humbuckers. Epiphone ProBuckers feature all the same ingredients as original PAF and BurstBucker pickups, including Alnico II magnets, Elektrisola magnet wire, 18 percent nickel silver unit bases and covers, and pole screws, slugs and bobbins manufactured to Gibson's original specifications.

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 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.

Loaded with premium add-ons!

Other premium features include Epiphone's LockTone Tune-o-matic/Stopbar combination bridge for increased sustain and easy string changes, 16:1 ratio Grover machine heads, a 7-layer bound body, a 5-layer bound headstock, and a comfortable single-layer bound rosewood fingerboard.

Les Paul Custom History

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.

Features:

- Solid mahogany body with a maple veneer top for a subtle 'bite'
- Solid mahogany neck hand-fitted with a glued-in joint for great neck-to-body contact
- Comfortable and super fast SlimTaper D neck profile
- Coil-tapping via a push/pull control at each pickup's volume knob
- Epiphone ProBucker pickups which replicate the original PAF style tone
- 16:1 ratio Grover machine heads
