Overview

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 pearloid headstock and fretboard inlays, it's as gorgeous as it is deadly. Case sold separately.

    Top shelf quality & value-more when you hop it up

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO Electric Guitar:

    Okay...I've had my epiphone custom for a number of years. Love the guitar-love the neck, love the look, the sound. Once that has thrilled you for a while, here are a few ideas to trick it out and take this guitar to the next level: 1) swap out the bridge for a high mass roller bridge. This slightly improves tone but adds sustain. This is the easiest, cheapest mod. 2) Locking Tuners: Epiphone has been notorious for cheaper tuners and I didn't like the look of the grovers-I got some gold, tulip/kluson style locking tuners (wilkinson) and now this baby stays in tune thru ANY kind of aggressive playing. Love it! 3) pickups: I took the plunge and bought Gibson pro bucker pickups...what a difference. I did a comparison with a stock custom epi-huge improvement in tone, bright and bite. Nevertheless-this guitar is excellent quality and fun right out of the box!

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO Electric Guitar:

    I can't rave enough about this guitar! It is beautiful. The finish is spotless and the binding looks striking against the white finish. The neck is very comfortable and easy to play. It sounds great running straight through my fender frontman 25R. I play classic rock and this guitar is perfect for me since I have just started playing again after 20 years. I have not used the coil tapping much but it is a nice feature. I am sure I will use it more as I progress. If you want a Les Paul but do not want to pay for a Gibson do not worry about the quality. The quality is top notch. I highly recommend this guitar in any color and for any level of player. Rock on!

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO Electric Guitar:

    I'm just a beginner and research guitars for months. I was just hypnotized when I saw this beauty in Alpine White. I had to have ONE. I spent a couple hundred more than I intended but it is so worth it to me. Every time I see it I want it in my hands. So my playing is getting better as I'm practicing that much more. Can't put it down! hopefully my playing ability will soon be on a par of this awesome guitar.

    Awesome Guitar!

    By 

    from Lakeland, FL

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO Electric Guitar:

    This was my first big guitar purchase and I must say that I am totally blown away by the quality of sound and build. It's a gorgeous-looking guitar and it sounds just as good as its $4,000 Gibson equivalent. It also had an additional feature that might be new, in addition to the bridge and neck pickup coil tap it had a "Phase Shift" tap on the neck pickup tone knob. I really only have two complaints: A) I had to purchase a case separately, which is understandable but still annoying (by the way, I definitely recommend getting the matching Epiphone Les Paul case) and B) I had to order both the guitar and the case (as they weren't available in my store) and the guitar was shipped inside three boxes (box in a box in a box)along with the typical packing stuff and I was hoping they would ship it in some kind of protective case or even the case that I ordered. However, there was no damage to anything that was shipped, so I guess that's what matter in the end. All in all, this guitar is awesome and I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

    Epi LP Custom Pro

    By 

    from Clarksville, TN

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO Electric Guitar:

    I've owned two Gibson LP Custom's before this Epiphone model. The Gibson's are heavier and feel different...not bad, just different. I've really got no complaints on the Epi. I've read some negative comments on the paint work and binding, but, my guitar was great...maybe they had some bad luck with their order. Sounds like a LP...looks like a LP...must be an LP. I do like the split coil feature...Adds more variety of sounds. Set up arrived in order...stays in tune all the way up the neck...Like i said, no complaints. For my purposes I couldn't justify the $$ for the Gibson, even though I wanted to find a reason to...just not practical. One day I will get back into a Gibson, but, for right now the Ephiphone is the right choice even though it is harder to type on the computer.

    Epiphone Raises The Bar

    By 

    from Kurgan, Russia

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO Electric Guitar:

    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.
