      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!

    Quick background - I've played guitar for roughly 50 years, but haven't owned an electric since the early 70's. I've been playing a Taylor acoustic for the past 10 years, and decided for my retirement to splurge on a new electric. I play with a "hobby" band - serious musicians, but just for fun - and decided we needed an electric to better cover some of the stuff we're doing. Long story longer, I went through 4 other guitars before I finally tried the Les Paul Custom Pro. The other either had intonation issues, or I didn't like the tonal qualities. Street-price-wise, this guitar was actually somewhat cheaper than the others I tried, plus Epiphone doesn't have a great rep in some circles. So I was a little leery about this purchase. However, I couldn't be more pleased. Fit and finish were excellent. Intonation was great, right out of the box. Tone-wise... well, it's a Les Paul, and the Probucker pickups have a good sound to them. You can also split the Probuckers individually into single-coil pickups. I'm not completely sold on the tone they produce this way (it's certainly not a strat), but it does add another color to your crayon box. The neck is thicker than some of the other guitars on the market these days (e.g, PRS, Hagstrom), but I actually prefer it. There's more room for my stubby little fingers. :) I can't comment on reliability, as I've only had the guitar for two weeks now. However, it does come with a Gibson limited lifetime warranty. (Here's hoping I'll never need it.) The only negative comment I'll add is that I find the neck to be a tad slow. Not fully sure if it's the finish on the back of the neck, or the fretboard, but there seems to be some drag moving up and down the neck. I may yet try some polish wax to see if that improves things.
