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:

    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.

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

    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.

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

    This guitar looks and sounds fantastic. The tone that this guitar produces is amazing and I have never played a guitar that has such a light action. I have no problem bending 1 1/2 steps on some of the higher frets. In fact I had to start being careful I wasn't bending to far. It is heavy but any les paul I have ever played has been heavy. The down side is that the model I purchased is now having issues with fret buzz. I purchased this guitar in March of 2015 and it is not July of 2015. I have had to re-straiten the neck 3 times since I bought the guitar. I have talked to a couple guitar tech's and they say that it has been typical of les paul's to take some time settling in but I am starting to question if it will ever settle in and stop needing to be adjusted once a month. I may end up returning it or trading it in.

    Epiphone vs. Gibson and the winner is.....

    By Andrew

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

    I bought my Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro in October 2014. As as returning Epiphone customer I pretty much knew what to expect as far as sound, quality, fit, and finish. Epiphone has always been a good balance of quality and function for the money. If you're willing to drop 2 or 3K on a Gibson, you won't be disappointed, but for the amatuer who can afford that? I was immediately hooked by the silverburst color scheme. I read up on the model via on several sites/forums; watched tons of youtube demos. The overwhelming opinion was that they are an outstanding guitar for the money. I got a hold of one at GC and right away was impressed. Very well put together. The color is awesome and the binding is a classy contrast. Fingerboard and fretwork is very good on mine, although I found the neck shape a bit flatter than I'm used to on my other guitars, but with a lot of things in the guitar world, it's what you like or what you are used to. When I plugged in, I wasn't sure what to expect from the Pro-Bucker pickups, but they gave that good old humbucker growl. I thought the pickups in the Gibson were hotter/dirtier, but not so much different/better to be worth the extra cash. The Custom Pro model comes with the coil splitting/tapping feature which allows you to approximate a Fender-esque sound, which I find is good for getting extra crisp highs for soloing, especially when using the bridge pickup. All things considered, I'm very happy with the Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro Silver-burst.

    This Guitar

    By NOAH

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

    Get this instrument if you really want something unique. The upsides to the guitar are that it, or at least mine, seems to be balanced weight-meaning the neck isnt too bad. Of course it is a Les Paul shape so its heavier than say a Strat, but a padded strap could help that. The pickups dont sound too bad out of the box, my favorite position being both pickups on for a nice clean tone. Inlay on the headstock is a nice feature and seems to save it from looking weird with that unusual headstock shape, plus the binding all around is pretty nice. Grovers work fine, maybe you'd change them for asthetic purposes?Pretty sweet guitar, but the downsides are as follows: the paint on the Pelham Blue model seems a little untidy with spots of wood grain showing through, the pickguard could have been polished a bit more to smooth out the edges, my model in particular has fret buzz at the 14th fret, and the knobs look like they could have been put on a little bit better, and the frets could use some smoothing out. Craftsmanship may be a little hit and miss, but i dont regret buying this at all, especially since its cheaper than the straight black or silverburst models. Oh by the way the pelham blue has coil tapping but no phase knob like the silverburst, which is still fine to me. One last thing is that the neck on this guitar, standing or sitting, feels pretty nice to play compared to the Epiphone Les Paul standard's neck for some reason.

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

    well... how can i start. I was at Guitar Center, and just put my eyes on this beautiful model. I asked to the salesman to show me a nice amp, which i could take everything of it. So i started to try this one. Even though it wasn't set up, i was able to realize that it has nice hardware, and sounds really cool. The pick-ups (good), tuning machines (perfect), body (perfect), paint job(awesome), everything in this guitar is great!

    Beautiful guitar, flawless performance.

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

    I've wanted an Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro in Silverburst for quite some time, and was finally able to buy one. The looks were stunning, even better than the pictures, and when I got it home it played perfectly right out of the box. I'm actually very surprised that it always stays in tune- even after two or three days of hard playing I check the tuning and it's spot on. The build quality of Epiphone is extremely high; they are all quality checked in the USA and are giving Gibson serious competition. I don't write reviews, but in this case it's warranted. Seriously, if you want an excellent value in a stage ready guitar, Epiphone has it. I am very happy with this guitar and plan on having it for many years to come.
