Epiphone Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar
A classic solidbody at a working guitarist’s price.
While all Les Pauls share common design features, the Les Paul Custom differed from the Les Paul Standard in that it’s body was solid mahogany without a maple cap. Epiphone’s Les Paul Custom follows that tradition by using a solid, carved Mahogany body giving it a slightly mellower tone. Like the originals, attached to the body is a solid mahogany neck with a hand-fitted, glued-in joint for optimum neck-to-body contact and acting almost like one continuous piece of wood. The neck features a very comfortable and fast “SlimTaper” neck profile that has become the most popular profile found on Les Pauls today. The result is a tribute to Les’ timeless guitar design with the sound and feel that you can only get from a real Les Paul. Based on the original Les Paul design that, since 1954, has been shaping rock history with its powerful tone and prolonged sustain, the Epiphone Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar has 2 Alnico Classic humbuckers, set mahogany neck, and a rosewood fingerboard with block inlays.
At the heart of the Les Paul Custom is a pair of Epiphone Alnico Classic humbucking pickups. Patterned after the original Gibson ’57 Classics, these pickups combine Alnico-V magnets with enamel wire to give you a tone that is warm and subtle with full, even response that doesn’t hold back when you need that classic humbucker crunch! The neck pickup is an Alnico Classic while the bridge pickup is an Alnico Classic Plus. The “Plus” is slightly over wound to give it a little bit higher output without sacrificing its rich, vintage tone. Other time-honored Custom features include gold hardware and body, neck, and headstock binding. A classic solidbody at a working guitarist’s price. Get an Epiphone Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar and add your own chapter to the story of rock guitar.

This guitar has been refurbished by MIRC. It is lightly stamped “used” on the back of the headstock and a new serial number applied to prevent the guitar from being sold as new factory stock. That being said, this guitar is about as close to new as ‘used’ can get! Everything works, plays, and sounds as it should. There have been no structural repairs. I can find no obvious blemishes. There is a very slight deformation of the binding on the back that can be seen in the last pic. This guitar is in beautiful condition and plays perfectly! You WON’T be disappointed!
