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.

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.

Fairly inexperienced with guitar playing however I really wanted to get back into practicing and this guitar really caught my eye. Feels very comfortable to play in and sounds great. Little bit of fret buzz however but I believe that may be due to my bad customer service so far.

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO Electric Guitar:

This was my first real decent guitar and ive loved since ive gotten it. ive had no problems with it. If you buy a cheap $5 strap it will feel heavy but if you get a more expensive strap it wont. Overall its a great guitar and more people should buy it.

Love the sound! Love the look!

By John K Jones

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO Electric Guitar:

I went into my local GC looking to buy an Epiphone Les Paul model. They didn't have the guitar in that I wanted and I didn't feel like waiting a couple of days for the guitar to come in. So I tried some of the other guitars that were there and I really liked the Les Paul Custom Pro. I love the split coil feature, I love the Probuckers (I had thought I would change these out, but after playing for a couple of days, I decided that I really liked the sound. I did get the guitar set up (it sounded good "out of the box") but sounded even better after a proper set up was done. The guitar tech was really impressed that it was an Epiphone and that sounded so good. It is a great looking guitar. I am a beginner player and I look forward to playing this guitar for a long time!

Perfect Les Paul!

By Andrew TerEick

from St. Paul, Minnesota

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO Electric Guitar:

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.

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

By THOMAS

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:

    Great guitar. It's beautiful and has a lot of nice features and I can tell it's got a great sound, esp with the quality pickups and option of coil splitting. I would give it 5 stars based on the quality of manufacture and the value for the money.

    I am knocking off a star because I picked mine up in store and was surprised that they don't do any setup at all. My guitar came in clearly needing it as there is significant fret buzz on the three thicker strings. I asked and they said nope, they don't do that. For the money I spent, I am disappointed that guitar center doesn't think a proper set up should be included.

    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!

    Quality 4 times the cost

    By David Brown

    from Port Washington, WI

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO Electric Guitar:

    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!
