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 with coil-split, gold hardware, multi-binding on body (top and back), neck and headstock as well as split-diamond mother-of-pearl headstock and fretboard inlays, it's as gorgeous as it is deadly.

Case sold seperately.

Best guitar I've had

By FERNANDO MARTINEZ

from Chihuahua/Mexico

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO Left Handed Electric Guitar:

Being lefty has been an obstacle as a guitarist my whole life so I decided to switch to left-handed and do it with style. Fell in love the moment I saw this guitar and saved to buy it. Best decision as a musician ever. It sounds deep, clean and beautiful, both metal and rock come out of it in a way I didn't know I could accomplish. Every note sustains for a long time and chords are rich. Its a bit heavy but not as heavy as others I've carried, makes me feel like I'm holding a real guitar. The pickups are really nice too, the only downside is it needs to be cleaned constantly. This is a really good quality guitar, if you're into les paul sound you can't go wrong with this one. It also has really nice colors and finish! Totally love the "custom" label, everyone compliments it.

amazing guitar.

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO Left Handed Electric Guitar:

if you are looking for a affordable les paul, this is the one to get, it has great sound quality and appears to be buit well. with the coil tapping feature you can really make this sound like a totally different type of guitar. it can go from classic fat les paul sound to that glassy smooth stratocaster like sound. I like this guitar better than I like my Gibson les paul studio or my other epiphone les paul one interesting thing is the phase switching, when using both pickups you can make so they are in or out of phase with each other. I do not care for the phase switching but its there if I ever want to use it, I just dont think it sounds good out of phase. the coil tapping sure is nice though. I hate black guitars but it is such a excellent guitar I can deal with it. your probably not ever going to find a better les paul for this kind of money, heck you might not even find a better les paul if you spend a good deal more.

Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO Left Handed Electric Guitar:

My first real guitar, stepped up from a little beginner strat to this and what a big difference. right out of the box the thing played and felt good. I love the sounds i can get out of this guitar, the only real modification i did was remove the pick guard, i kept hitting it and it felt like a flimsy piece of plastic but it looked nice. over all my biggest complaint is keeping it clean, i use it for just minor practice and jamming in my dorm room but in a short amount of time the black and gold show finger prints and dust. I don't think i'll ever buy another epiphone les paul however because i could find a used gibson or maybe new if i felt like eating ramen noodles and cheese for a couple months however if you're looking for a brand new les paul custom pro for less than 3000$ then this is your best bet.

      Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO Left Handed Electric Guitar:

      Wow, just wow! This guitar is wonderful. It has that beautiful full Les Paul sound, AND a strat sound with the pick ups split. The first time at practice, the guys freaked out. Oh yeah, I used all the tricks this guitar has built into it. The out of phase almost gives the guitar a Telecaster sound, but not quite. All in all, I am very pleased with this guitar.

        Currently in a band, bought this as an upgrade and I'm incredibly impressed. The sound quality is great, and as a unit we sound better at practice. It's also good for recording and gives great tone. Good for beginners or an experienced musician.

            I use this for practice and jamming mostly. The only issue i have found with it is that the dials don't really change the sound uniformaly. It's not as bad as it either being on or off, but its not as smooth of a transition as i would have liked. But the rest of the equipment is amazing.

            ***I own a right handed Custom Pro and ITS A BEAST!!!***

            *The tone and feel is the first thing and its a Ball and Glove Fit for me.

            *You can hear the night and day differences as you switch between the buckers with the toggle switch and the coil tapping and phase switch!

            *The ProBucker Pickups are REALLY underrated by the High end Cork Sniffers as I've read in reviews and in other LesPaul forums. These Buckers REALLY have a Awesome Chunky Punch when set to the rhythm and a Beautiful bright tone when set to the treble setting.

            I would put this guitar up against ANY 4 to 5 digit price Gibson OR Heritage because you get a HEAVY AMOUNT of Bang 4 Your Buck with this guitar sound and quality wise!

            THIS guitar is suitable for ALL and ANY uses and I would HIGHLY recommend it to those who are ready to ROCK OUT AND to those who wanna Price/Quality Compare!

              Plays, feels and almost sounds as good as as a real deal Gibson. I have an Epiphone LP Standard that I fell in love with so I got this one and once again, I wasn't disappointed. Such an incredible guitar for the money. If you want a well built guitar that feels and sounds great but don't want to spend Gibson money, get this and I guarantee you'll be happy.

              Being left-hand I've spent big bucks for a Srat and a Guild back in the 70's. But when I saw this, had to have it...and it is Really Beautiful too! The quality & appearance is equal if not far superior to the LH Gibson. Smooth frets, amazing pick-ups, no flays in the finish.

                  OK, you're left-handed, you're on the GC page, and you're looking at Epi LPs -- all in the low-mid price range. At this time of writing, there's the cheapest, the plus, and this the Pro. Not surprisingly for lefty models, black rules the color palette at either extreme, though the Plus has a nice flamed burst. If you don't want black, that's your choice [or of course some other brand entirely].

                  I'm not going to comment on whether it arrived in tune or if I liked the string action, because those things are really irrelevant to the instrument itself. I have other electric guitars, so I was mainly interested in what this guitar's unique qualities were & why this model was worth buying over the cheaper model. And the answer is mainly in the ProBucker pickups.

                  There are other qualities too: I expect the pots & switches are a grade better, and the gold hardware suggests higher quality before you even hear it. The ProBucker pickups have a nice warmth, and the neck plays pretty well.

                  While I was interested in the additional electronics, I don't know if I'll actually use them -- my stock Mexi Strat has a richer single-coil sound -- but perhaps I'll find some use for them. The fact that older versions of this guitar don't have coil-splitting or phase-switching shows you that it's not really an essential part of this guitar's value.

                  Now for the looks: well, all black really does go everywhere: church, club, stage. It's kinda nice to remember that this is what Les Paul himself chose.

                  The weight: I previously owned an SG [6 lbs vs 10 for this], but that didn't keep my shoulder from aching after three hours of playing. So lighter weight isn't as important as a good strap. The Epi LP's weight is part of what makes it feels solid, in every sense of the word.

                  Bottom line: IMO this guitar is the point of max value for the buck. Worth saving up a little longer for.
