      Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO Electric Guitar (H79039)

A professionally upgraded Les Paul Custom with looks that kill.

The king of solid body guitars, 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. Now with its ebony or antique white finish, 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 mother-of-pearl inlays, we think you'll agree that the Epiphone Les Paul Custom is "dressed to kill". Now featuring ProBucker 2 and ProBucker 3 humbucking pickups, gold hardware, multi-binding on body (top and back), neck and headstock as well as split-diamond mother-of-pearl headstock and fretboard inlays, it’s as gorgeous as it is deadly.

Case sold separately.

  • Perfect Les Paul!

    As reviewed by Andrew TerEick on 11/28/2012

    I recently bought this guitar in Alpine White and I am simply amazed at sound coming from it! The ProBuckers give it a wide range of sounds just from a couple clicks. The coil splitting option also gives it that extra something. I was eyeing a Gibson Les Paul '70s reissue Goldtop that I was pretty set on buying, but it was about $250 more. After playing it in store it was nothing compared to this guitar in terms of sound and comfortability. I definitely recommend this guitar to anyone looking for solid Les Paul.

  • Quality 4 times the cost

    As reviewed by David Brown on 11/10/2013

    Although I am what you would call a beginner guitarist, I had to give up drums after 25 years due to injury/illness. I have been in bands since 1975, so I know what rocks and what is a poser. This is my third guitar, and it is the most comfortable to play(neck is super fast), and has tons of tone to die for. I have an American Standard Strat with Seymour Duncans, a DBZ with Seymour Duncan Blackouts, and both sound great, but I got my Epi home tonight and plugged it into my Budda Superdrive 18 and wholly s--t! This is the sound I have been looking for!!!!!! Make no mistake, this is a professional quality guitar. Nice set neck, gorgeous finish, solid electronics with coil split and phase reverse, top of the line pup, and Grover Tuners. Sorry Gibson, but you would have to fork over $2 grand more for this quality in your line. This guitar has impressed me so much that my next axe will probably be a Epi SG!

  • Epiphone Raises The Bar

    As reviewed by Phyllis Cuddy on 11/18/2013

    I have played for 32 years, and have owned many guitars, including 3 Gibson LPs and 1 Epi LP Standard. I don't just hand out glowing reviews like Halloween candy, but this deserves it. I needed a Les Paul to use while I am in Russia (since shipping one of mine here would be risky and costly) and so I tried a few at a shop in Saint Petersburg. I am quite familiar with LPs, so I knew what I was searching for. The white Custom Pro I ended up buying was definitely better than the two Standard Pros I tested. Something about its acoustic AND its electric tone was better, and the feel of it was superior. I noticed that the Custom was made in Indonesia, while the Standards were made in China (like the Standard I used to own). I also noticed that the Custom was a good weight -- about 9-9.5 pounds, which is right where it should be, IMO. After I got the guitar home, I measured the body. What I found was that this Custom Pro is just under 2 inches wide, which is exactly what my Gibson measures. The Epi Standard that I used to have measured only 1 3/4 inches wide. The sound of the ProBucker pickups is a giant leap forward from the pickups Epi had been using before. They are fat, bright, sweet, and crunch well. Not underwound and not over. The added tapping feature is a nice plus. So many tones! The overall look, fit & finish, hardware, and fretwork are all excellent. (though there is a small gap between the pickguard and the neck pickup bezel) I also love the neck profile, which I think would suit many other players too. My new Custom does everything a Les Paul should, IMO, and is a keeper - even with two Gibsons waiting for me back in the USA. I can honestly say that it holds its own with those guys. Of course it will never be exactly like an American-made Gibson, but I think that's beside the point: it gives a great Les Paul experience, does it with good quality and for a terrific price. Amazing.
