What Epiphone say....
Dressed to Kill!
The Les Paul Custom made its debut in 1954 after the initial success of the Les Paul Goldtop. Mr. Les Paul himself wanted to convey to audiences that the solid body electric guitar was not a fad but a superb and challenging instrument and that his signature axe, the Les Paul, was the king of all electric solid body guitars. So, Les requested a Les Paul with a custom color finish in solid black and solid white with gold hardware that would blend well with a tuxedo.
The result was the Les Paul Custom, or the “tuxedo” Les Paul, as it became known among fans. The Les Paul Custom quickly became one of the most recognized guitars in the world and Les himself used his Les Paul Custom in concerts, on his weekly television show with wife Mary Ford and on his album covers, including his famous duet with pal Chet Atkins, Chester and Lester.
Now with Epiphone’s superior ProBucker™ humbucker pickups with coil-tapping along with the Custom’s classic gold hardware, fully bound body, neck and headstock, and pearloid inlays, we think you’ll agree that the Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO is “dressed to kill.”
Great Tonewoods, Classic Les Paul Sound
While all Les Pauls share common design features, the Les Paul Custom distinguished itself from the Les Paul Standard and Les Paul Goldtop with a solid mahogany body. The Les Paul Custom PRO carries on that tradition but with the added twist of a maple veneer top, which adds a subtle “bite” to the Les Paul Custom’s legendary tone. Just like Les’ personal Custom, the Les Paul Custom PRO has a solid mahogany neck with a 24.75” scale that’s hand-fitted with a glued-in joint for optimum neck-to-body contact, which allows the Les Paul Custom PRO to resonate as one solid piece of wood. The fingerboard features pearloid dot inlays and has a 12” radius, a 1.68” nut and 22 medium-jumbo frets.
The mahogany neck has a very comfortable and super fast SlimTaper™ "D" profile, the most popular profile found on today’s Les Pauls. The Custom PRO also features beautiful 5-ply (white/black) binding around the maple veneer top and the back along with single-ply white binding around the body. The fingerboard is bound in white and the ‘60s era classic Epiphone clipped dovewing headstock features 5-ply (white/black) binding along with a Custom-style “split diamond” pearloid inlay and, of course, a vintage ‘60s/Kalamazoo era “Epiphone” logo in pearloid. The Kalamazoo-era bell-shaped truss rod cover features “Les Paul Custom” in white silkscreen in tribute to Les’ timeless design. The Les Paul Custom PRO comes in Alpine White and Ebony.
ProBucker™ Humbucker Power
The Les Paul Custom PRO now features Epiphone’s ProBucker™ pickups, a 4-wire design with coil-tapping inspired by Gibson’s legendary BurstBuckers™. ProBucker™ pickups recreate the sound of the original hand-wound “PAF” humbuckers made by Seth Lover at the Kalamazoo factory in the late ’50s. Epiphone ProBuckers™ feature all the same ingredients as original PAF and BurstBucker™ pickups, including Alnico II magnets, Elektrisola magnet wire, 18% nickel silver unit bases and covers, and pole screws, slugs and bobbins manufactured to Gibson’s original specifications. The result is a phenomenal pickup that, over time, will develop the subtle, one-of-a-kind characteristics that you can only get from vintage humbuckers. And best of all, those unique pickup characteristics will give your guitar a unique “voice.” No two vintage Les Pauls sound alike and ProBuckers™ give your Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO a one-of-a-kind sound that will get better the more you play. So plan on playing your Les Paul Custom PRO a lot!
The Les Paul Custom PRO includes a ProBucker-2™ humbucker in the neck position that is slightly overwound for greater definition at higher volumes. The bridge pickup is a ProBucker-3™ humbucker, which is also slightly overwound to give your solos a wide tonal range. Each pickup features coil-tapping via a push/pull control at each pickup’s volume knob, which really gives the Les Paul Custom Pro the ability to be any guitar you can imagine. All volume and tone controls are Black Speed knobs and feature full-size 500K ? potentiometers matched with Epiphone’s rugged, all-metal, 3-way toggle pickup selector switch for long-lasting performance and an Epiphone ¼” non-rotating output jack.
Unbeatable Epiphone Hardware
Epiphone’s reputation for great guitars extends to its unbeatable hardware and the Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO delivers with a standard-setting gold LockTone™ Tune-o-matic bridge and a gold Stopbar tailpiece for superb tuning stability. Both the Alpine White and Ebony models feature gold hardware, including gold Grover® machine heads with a 14:1 ratio. A hard case is optional.
