Dressed to Kill!

The Les Paul Custom made its debut in 1954 after the initial success of the Les Paul Goldtop. Les Paul himself suggested black as a great color for a new Les Paul because it looked "classy" and went well with a tuxedo on stage. From that point on, the Les Paul Custom has often been referred to as the "tuxedo" Les Paul. And with its gold appointments, fully bound body, neck and headstock and pearloid inlays, Epiphone thinks you'll agree that the Epiphone Les Paul Custom is "dressed to kill".

And like every Epiphone, the Les Paul Custom features their Limited Lifetime Warranty backed by world famous 24/7/365 Gibson Customer Service. So put on your tuxedo and strap on an Epiphone Les Paul Custom today.

Great Tone Woods

While all Les Pauls share common design features, the Les Paul Custom differed from the vintage Les Paul Standard with a solid mahogany but no maple cap. Epiphone's LP Custom follows that tradition by using a solid, carved mahogany body which gives the guitar a slightly mellow tone. Like the originals, the Les Paul Custom is fitted with a solid mahogany neck and hand-fitted with a glued-in joint for optimum neck-to-body contact which allows the neck and body to resonate almost like one continuous piece of wood. The neck features a very comfortable and fast SlimTaper profile. The result is a tribute to Les' timeless guitar design with the sound and feel that you can only get from a real Les Paul.

Classic Electronics

At the heart of the read more Les Paul Custom is a pair of Epiphone Alnico Classic humbucker pickups. Patterned after Gibson '57 Classics, these pickups combine Alnico-V magnets with enamel wire to give you a tone that is both warm and subtle with a full and even response that doesn't hold back when you need that classic humbucker crunch! The neck pickup is an Alnico Classic while the bridge pickup is an Alnico Classic Plus. The "Plus" is slightly over-wound for a higher output without sacrificing its rich, vintage tone.

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 ebony fingerboard.

As a lefty my guitar selections over the 50 years of playing has been slim. The older guitars I played are always a struggle. Didn't matter who made them. I saw this Les Paul by Epiphone and well it's just beautiful, so I wanted one. I contacted Johnathan. I found him to be very helpful. Of course he said this make was out of stock ,that I could bet one in a year or so. 2 years later here is the call. Now that's a great feeling to be remembered. He sent the guitar. Now this is where the rubber meets the road. For the hundred plus lefthanded guitars I've played in my life. This is hands down the best. I dont care what the headstock says. Its balanced, feels as firm and sturdy. The electronics work beyond my expectations. I really started to believe a guitar couldn't e made without fret buzz. Theis Epiphone Custom is as pure and clear has I has always imagined. This is put simply the best musical, guitar transaction of my life.
