Overview

Joe Bonamassa has once again turned to Epiphone to recreate one of his most-prized guitars—his "Black Beauty" Les Paul Custom. The original instrument, built in Kalamazoo, Michigan, was sold in 1958 at a small music store in Ohio. Sixty years later, this Les Paul Custom found its way back to the exact same store. Bonamassa, recognizing its rarity, snapped it up instantly.

The Epiphone Joe Bonamassa Black Beauty borrows all of the specs from the original 1958 Les Paul Custom. The mahogany body is a solid piece of wood—no modern weight relief here, folks. The mahogany neck has a ’50s profile, round and chunky, perfect for muscular bends over the ebony fretboard. You'll love the look and feel; plug it in and you'll fall in love even more.

Bonamassa spec'd Black Beauty with a set of Epiphone ProBuckers. Made with 18% nickel silver bases and covers, sand cast alnico magnets and period-correct bobbins, ProBuckers are the real deal. In blind listening tests, they've fooled pros and vintage experts alike. Expect mounds of holy grail PAF-style growl.

A gold-plated tune-o-matic bridge and LockTone stop bar add more elegant icing to the cake. The Epiphone Joe Bonamassa Black Beauty Les Paul Custom comes with a classic black hardshell case with yellow gold plush lining and gold hardware.
