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 originally suggested black as a great color for a new Les Paul because it looked "classy" and went well with a tuxedo on stage. Now, you can own this Les Paul Custom in a limited edition Silverburst finish. And with its chrome appointments, fully bound body, neck and headstock and mother-of-pearl inlays, we think you'll still agree that the Limited Edition Epiphone Les Paul Custom is "dressed to kill." Now featuring ProBucker 2 and ProBucker 3 humbucking pickups, chrome hardware, multi-binding on body (top and back), neck and headstock as well as split-diamond mother-of-pearl headstock and block fretboard inlays, it's as gorgeous as it is deadly.

I was looking to get into an LP model, being a Strat fan and player from eons ago when trying to learn guitar, learn music theory, get comfortable with a guitar and eventually try to master it, I stuck to the same guitars through all of that. So to that end I still have my Martin D28, and like most players, I've maintained it and still have it and play it. After that, delving into the electric market, I was a huge Pink Floyd fan, and that swayed me into the Fender Stratocaster purchase in 1986, and I still have that guitar as well as two more Fender Strats purchased along the way. Admittedly, I'm one of those people that become loyal to a brand that does me right, and Fender did that, as has Martin, and my investments have been minimal based on reliability and basically taking care of the guitars. Now, sorry for boring you all, but here's where I was headed. I was looking to buy a Les Paul model guitar, because anyone that is my age, grew up with the 70's and 80's music always prevalent, I knew I was missing that sound. I ventured into GC and was set with a $2,000 budget set aside to make the purchase. It wasn't one I was going to do by impulse, I was going to play many of the available guitars. I even dabbled with a Telecaster thought and trial during this purchasing process. I even made the purchase of a Gibson Les Paul Studio, took it home, and played it for nearly three weeks. Gibson is an truly an excellent guitar, loved the sound, and I was glad I added it to my modest, but reliable collection. So, as fate would have it, I ambled by the GC for some strings for the Martin and I saw this guitar. I loved the look, so I asked to play it a little and that was quickly arranged. I have to say the guitar was very comfortable, and while made in China, that actually was the last thing on my radar, because I just loved the look of the guitar, the triple binding that was real, not painted on and general feel was very smooth. The sound was incredible, and the potential to change it up by splitting the coils and also putting the pickups out of phase gave limitless options to work with. I wasn't very familiar with humbuckers like many Les Paul players, but the probucker 2 and 3 on this guitar were extremely good sounding. I played with the split coils and nearly got it very close to the sound of a Strat, then a push in of the volume controls and I was right back to that classic humbucker sound. The mother of pearl inlays are great in the fretboard and the guitar was setup perfectly right there in the store. I went home, researched it a little more, and realized at THAT TIME that this was an Epiphone. Okay, so I'm not a professional player, and I already stated that I was pretty much connected by all my experience to the guitars I owned, but I really was impressed with the sound, the versatility, the build, the little extras and I took my purchased Gibson back (was within the 30 days), purchased this guitar, caught it during a 15% sale, and now have in my possession this great sounding Epiphone guitar. It's a permanent addition, and will not be going back. I am not going to compare it to a Gibson, but I will say that exchanging the two guitars as I did had nothing to do with price. I was already committed and had shopped hard for the other LP and was happy with it. The fact is, this guitar, regardless of name on the mother of pearl inlay headstock, sounded great, let me expand my desire to play and is now having a couple of strats sitting on stands waiting their turn. It's a really solid guitar. Money wise, well worth the money, during the current sales this is a ridiculously affordable great electric for even the beginner, and for anyone that just wants to add a well built, great sounding and solid guitar, a great addition you will play and play often.

ok bought this guitar 2 weeks ago...look good, smelled good..I was excited. Call me crazy BUT...different from the reviews I read. Will not stay in tune. I tune it with a snark tuner, as I do my other guitars and 3 or 4 chords later. I get the outta tune blues. Nothing worse than the outta tune blues when you just paid a lot of money for a guitar. I'm going to see if I can take it to a Guitar Center store and let them advise me...very disappointing to have to do this.Hope I can get some satisfaction because right now " I can't get No......."

      Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Custom PRO Electric Guitar:

      Dollar for Dollar,.. 'easily' a better value than any of the entry level $8-900 Gibson's hanging above it that I was originally looking to buy. The Gibson's all had jagged frets sticking out - felt horrible! Fret board was not properly lined up with the neck where it joined the body or even trimmed to fit. Gritty frets. Cut cost with a really 'cheap' satin finish - which only seemed to be a description not an actual finish at all. Then there's this Epiphone Limited Edition Custom Pro Silverburst, it's gorgeous and quality made! Great tone, no flaws at all and I have looked with great scrutiny. It's worth mentioning that it's one of the most well done faded edge paint jobs in this silver burst that I've seen in a while. No variation or airbrush inconsistencies at all! I've seen these before & just never gave them a second look until I saw it in person and held it close enough to really appreciate it. I've heard people say that before, but figured it was bull,... it's not. Smooth pots. Tuners feel like a better quality than listed. The wood was very well sanded. The coating was fluid and beautifully glassy. Very resonate neck to body, a nice solid feel / weight with the sustain and tone dept we all expect form a Les Paul. Like most guitars we upgrade them and customize along the way where we can. If you're looking for a guitar that sounds and looks great NOW and you won't be in a hurry to upgrade or feel disappointed until you do, then here it is. I could go on and talk about it's tone and versatility - which is has - but someone else will do that. If you think it sounds muddy or so/so. Then you should look into buying a good amp. Go look for yourself. I'm not saying it's the best in the world. I'm saying it's shockingly well made for it's price range. A quality guitar that sounds great and is 'dollar for dollar' an incredibly good value. Epi's giving Gibson a good run for their money here. Good job guys!

        Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Custom PRO Electric Guitar:

        I had been looking at the guitar for almost 3 years when I first saw in at Guitar Center in MD. I was trying to decide on either the LP Black Beauty of the LP Limited Edition Custom Pro Silver Burst. I played both for several hours at G.C. and just could not resist the LP Silver Burst. I bought it a few weeks ago and have been playing it for hours each night since it was purchased. The fit and finish are beautiful and the pictures don't do it justice. The sounds and tones that can be had out of the Pro Humbucker pickups are incredible and just what I was looking for. The frets and fret boat are smooth and clean with no rough edges, the set up is almost perfect right off the shelf with only a couple of adjustments for action that I will take care of later. I also like how it stays in tune even after aggressive playing and with lots of string bending, only a minor adjustment has been required after a couple evenings of enjoyable playing. I played guitar back in my teen years thru my mid twenties then I stopped and sold all my equipment and have just started back playing again about three (3) years ago. I am in my early sixties so I grew up on Rock-Roll / R&B and Metal so this guitar totally fits the bill because it can reproduce all the sounds I enjoyed back in youth. I am glad I was finally able to picked up this guitar after wanting one for years.

          I bought this guitar used from my local Guitar Center. I always wanted a Gibson Les Paul Custom in a silverburst finish, but could never afford one. I saw this Epiphone on the rack and grabbed it immediately. It sounds awesome, though I might switch out the pickups for something with more low-end. All in all best guitar I've ever owned.

          Bought this guitar a few months ago and have had no problems with it. Quality, Chinese made guitar with excellent sound. Epiphone could charge a another $50 for this guitar and it would still be worth it. It is a beauty to both listen to and look at.

            Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Custom PRO Electric Guitar:

            Had been looking at the LP Black Beauty and the Limited Edition LP custom pro silver burst for almost two years. I would pick up one or the other every time I went in to GC to pick up strings sets for my guitars. I finally selected the silver burst limited custom pro and have been playing it for hours every evening. I play mostly classic rock , blues and this guitar covers all these venues perfectly. The numerous tones and sounds that can be had just from adjusting the knobs on the guitar are incredible and that is without even touching or adjusting the amp. The fit and finish on the guitar is beautiful and the fret edges areas smooth as silk. I played and owned mostly Fender guitars Strats and Teles when I was much younger and always wanted a Les Paul but just never owned one, now at 60 I finally have begun to really enjoy playing this awesome guitar. The guitar hold tunes pretty solidly unlike some of the other reviews I have read, and the action was set up pretty good right from GC. I will next put a set of Elixir Poly-Web strings on and just enjoy this really nice guitar.

                This is a Pro Guitar. If it said Gibson on the head it would be worth well over $1000.00. This Guitar kicks my Gibson 2013 lpj 's butt . It's not only a Beauty but it sounds and plays beautifully.The pick up's are great for any style of music. I play hard rock, Metal, Hardcore and this guitar is perfect for these styles! Epiphone have really stepped up their game. Their Custom Pro and Prophecy lines are top notch. I play this one everyday. I'll be buying the alpine white model soon.

                  Purchased this as a cheaper alternative for a Les Paul and to move away from a Strat. Don't get me wrong, I love the Strat, but wanted to try an LP. Great price for high quality instrument. I did restring it with Ernie Ball strings. I love the rich tones that this guitar produces.

                  Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Custom PRO Electric Guitar:

                  I use to own a Gibson LP Custom in silver burst when they first came out. I loved the sound but the quality in workmanship was something else. I'll be polite and leave it at that. Needless to say I swore off Gibson and never wanted to go back. Ever since then I pretty much have been a Fender Strat man for many years. Giving credit where credit is due, there is just something about the LP sound you can't get with anything else, so I thought. I went to GC expecting to pay nearly 5 thousand dollars to buy one that was claimed to be like, or even better, than my old one. There was no comparison. The new one didn't have the feel or sound of my old one, or any other LP for that matter. About ready to leave the salesman asked me to try this Epiphone LP in silver burst. I laughed, but thought what the heck, I was already there. When he handed me the guitar it totally blew me away in appearance. When I sat down to play it, that was the exact sound I looking for, plus more. I would have bought it on the spot but it was pretty heavily demoed. With them not having a new one in the box I went home and ordered one online. This is not something I would normally do with a guitar, but they said if it's not to my satisfaction in any way, I could return it to the store or send it back. Upon its arrival, I was amazed at how well it was packed. It was triple boxed and had padding all around it. I was again blown away by its looks, it's beautiful! The neck was perfectly straight, it was in tune, the intonation was spot on and there was no fret buzz what so ever. The only adjustment I made was to change out the strings. I have yet to find a new guitar I have not had to do this to. Other than that, it was ready to play right out of the box. For those looking for a Gibson LP, check out the Epiphone too and make the comparison. After all, they are a sister company to Gibson and they are a great guitar at literally a fraction of the price. I have no regrets and feel I made the right choice.

                  I have had this guitar for 8 months now and i can honestly say it has been my favorite guitar to play, i have had a squire strat in the past, it was nice, but not quite the sound i was going for. i picked up my friends Les Paul and loved it, i approached this one at the store tired it out for a couple of hours before deciding on this model. they heavy Tones in treble are awsome, with the right distortion set up it is a screamer, the clean setting in rythem is what really threw me off, for being an epiphone model, it has the best neck pickups stock right out of the gate. it doesn't have the sustain of active eMGs, but this guitar is one of a kind. i recommend it to anyone that likes Les Paul guitars.
