Les Paul Custom Guitars
Les Paul Custom Guitars
From Jimmy Page and Ace Frehley to Randy Rhoads and Zakk Wylde, the amount of iconic guitar slingers who cut their teeth on Les Paul guitars is seemingly endless. Today, the Les Paul continues to inspire guitarists of all tastes with its solid feel and powerful, biting tone. In fact, the new Les Paul Custom guitar is based on the iconic six-string from the mid-50s, but also features several modern appointments that make it a favorite among contemporary rockers who like to play at high volumes.
In this catalog you'll discover that Les Paul Custom guitars are manufactured by both Gibson and their more affordable sibling, Epiphone. Les Paul Customs from Epiphone are ideal for value-concious guitarists who want a high-quality guitar without the hefty price tag. There are many top sellers here, including the Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO Electric Guitar; and for southpaws, the Les Paul Custom PRO Left Handed Electric Guitar. Epiphone even offers a Custom Signature Model: the Lee Malia Signature Les Paul Custom Artisan Electric Guitar is inspired by the '70s vintage classic Les Paul Artisan used by Lee Malia of Bring Me the Horizon. Sporting a unique pickup combo of a Gibson P-94 in the rhythm position and the Gibson 84-LM humbucker with coil tapping in the bridge position, you can bet that this signature model delivers the goods when it's cranked to 10.
Of course, no one would blame you for wanting to go all out on a model from Gibson. For those of you who really want to go all out on an axe, take a look at the Gibson 2015 Peter Frampton Les Paul Custom. A popular seller, this guitar is based on the guitar Peter played on his legendary 1976 live album. Boasting a mahogany back with weight-relief chambers, slim neck profile and three Gibson humbuckers ('57 Classic at the neck, '57 Classic Plus in the middle and a 500T at the bridge), simply not enough can be said about this musical masterpiece.
Considering how long the Les Paul has remained a staple in popular music, it's pretty safe to say that its reputation will remain as solid as the guitar itself for many years to come. Les Paul Custom guitars are designed by a passionate team of luthiers who take pride in upholding the Les Paul name, and any one of the models in this section would make that obvious from the moment you hit the first chord.
