| |Dressed to Kill! designed with the help of Adam Jones from ToolThe 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 his Les Paul because it looked "classy" and went well with a tuxedo on stage. From that point on, the Les Paul Custom has often been referred to as the "tuxedo" Les Paul. Now, the Les Paul Custom gets a new suit with a stunning one-of-a-kind Silver Burst color finish! Great Tone Woods While all Les Pauls share common design features, the Les Paul Custom differed from the Les Paul Standard with a solid mahogany body but without a maple cap. Epiphone's LP Custom Silverburst follows that tradition by using a solid, carved mahogany body which gives the guitar a slightly mellower tone. Like the originals, the Les Paul Custom Silverburst is fitted with a solid mahogany neck, hand-fitted with a glued-in joint for optimum neck-to-body contact which allows it the body and neck to resonate like one continuous piece of wood. The neck features a very comfortable and fast SlimTaper™ profile that has become the most popular profile found on today’s Les Pauls. 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. Classic Electronics At the heart of the Les Paul Custom is a pair of Epiphone Alnico Classic™ humbucker pickups. Patterned after Gibson '57 Classics, these pickups combine Alnico-V magnets with enamel wire to give you a tone that is both warm and subtle with a 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 for a higher output without sacrificing any of its rich, vintage tone.
Epiphone’s Award Winning Hardware! Other premium features include Epiphone's LockTone™ Tune-o-matic/Stopbar combination bridge for increased sustain and easy string changes, 16:1 ratio Grover® machine heads, a 7-layer bound body, a 5-layer bound headstock, and a comfortable single-layer bound rosewood fingerboard. Add in the awesome Silver Burst finish and you have a classic in-the-making.
