From the Manufacturer

Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO

With ProBucker Pickups and Coil-Tapping

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 pearloid inlays, we think you'll agree that 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 originally 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 pearloid 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 SlimTaper "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" 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. 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. ProBucker pickups recreate the sound of the original hand-wound "PAF" humbuckers made by Seth Lover at the Kalamazoo factory in the late '50s. Epiphone ProBuckers feature all the same ingredients as original PAF and BurstBucker pickups, including Alnico II magnets, Elektrisola wire, and 18% nickel silver unit bases and covers. 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 Ω 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 machine heads with a 14:1 ratio.

About Epiphone

Epiphone is one of American's oldest and most revered instrument makers and since 1873, Epiphone has made instruments for every style of popular music. The name evokes both history and the spirit of invention. Epiphone has been an audible presence in every great musical era from the mandolin craze of the early 1900s to jazz age guitars of the 1920s. From swing-era archtops through post-war pop, jazz, R&B, and early rock n' roll. From the "British Invasion" to heavy metal, punk, grunge, and thrash. And now, in the 21st century, new Epiphone technical breakthroughs such as the ProBucker pickup, series parallel switching, built-in KillSwitch pots, the Shadow NanoFlex and NanoMag pickup systems, and premier acoustic/electric guitars with the eSonic preamp have brought the historic name to a new generation.

Color Name: Ebony
I have a $2000 GIBSON Les Paul Standard and I totally love it. That being said, I love this $549 Epiphone Custom Les Paul just a little bit more. Not only does it look better, but it plays just as well as the Gibson and sounds remarkably close, so close that it's negligible. Epiphone quality has always been good in my experience but has REALLY stepped up lately. This particular guitar excels all my expectations on many levels.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

Color Name: Ebony
Pros: Solid construction, great fretboard, great hardware, great pickups, good volume and tone knobs in not loose or cheap.

Cons: none what so ever- I played all types of Gibson's costing $1000+ in price and this Custom Pro was just as good and in fact better in some cases.

Bottom Line: I could afford any of the Gibsons costing thousands and instead chose the Custom Pro from Epiphone- it was just as good or better in some aspects and it is built right and plays great / feels great / is a work of art ready to be put to use. Only other thing I might do to it is some Slash Seymour Duncans- and that is a maybe if I wanted to do that because it just sounds phenomenal as it is and sometimes you shouldn't mess with something that doesn't need fixed.

If you can't afford a Gibson, you owe it to yourself to try this guitar- it out performed a lot of Gibsons I played and was considering. When I went guitar shopping - money wasn't an object for me. If I wanted to spend a couple of thousand for a main name brand proven model- the option was there and I played and tried those models just to see certain aspects. My opinion past a certain point- you are paying for the name and just throwing money away. The real talent comes from the user and he needs a great platform to extend that skill. This Guitar- just was outstanding and I was shocked that it was better than a lot of the name brand guitars costing $1000+ more. Do not buy a LP "standard" or "Traditional Pro" until you play the Custom Pro. It is the Rolls Royce model and out performs the lower models hands down for only about $100 more. It's neck is like silk, it's finish- mirror smooth- hardware quality, pickups- outstanding tone / sound / clarity vintage.

Color Name: Ebony Verified Purchase
I am a guitar beginner and have used this guitar for a month. I ordered mine from American Musical Supply via Amazon. The first guitar I received was a dud and only worked on the treble setting. To their credit, American Musical replaced the defective guitar quickly and at no extra cost.

The second guitar works perfectly and holds its tune unlike the previous guitar. This Epiphone Les Paul is a work of art. A black finish wraps a sleek body and elegant gold hardware pops from the guitar. This guitar's style reminds me of a grand piano.

My new guitar not only looks good, but sports excellent performance. Here is a list of reasons I love my Epiphone:

- Holds its tuning for days
- Pro Buckers produce a rich sound
- The coil split feature augments sound variety
- Neck is glued in and not bolted (personal preference)
- Glossy finish is easy to clean

Possible Cons:

- The gold plating on certain parts may wear off with time
- The guitar is heavier and thicker than cheaper guitars such as the Les Paul Junior, Special II, etc.
- It's Chinese so quality control is an issue (buy with a good return policy)

Hopefully this review clarified your buying decision. If you buy this guitar, I suggest getting an Epiphone Les Paul case. Meanwhile, I am off to play more Rocksmith while I await Rocksmith's 2014 edition.
