|When you're looking for a guitar that will last for years and help you tackle a wide variety of music styles, turn to Epiphone. A favorite among musicians as far back as the Les Paul Custom's launch in 1968, this black Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar lends the perfect sound and clarity to any player. Fitted with a Tune-o-matic fixed bridge and featuring a conservative 24.75-inch scale length, this instrument's earthy hues and laminated top are sure to dazzle. The 22-fret mahogany wood neck is well-suited for creating a diverse range of sounds.Made in Korea and equipped with two Alnico Classic humbucker pickups with coil-splitting capabilities, this solid-body electric guitar is versatile enough to handle everything from gospel and rockabilly to punk rock and heavy metal. The crunchy, gritty sounds you can create with the neck pickup are perfect for harder sounds, making them well-suited to rock and roll, while the bridge position of the guitar makes the tone clear and clean enough to dip into gospel or even country. With volume and tone knobs and a three-way toggle switch for the pickups, you'll find that the roof of the venue is no longer the limit when it comes to unleashing vibrant and professional music from your strings.The humbuckers can also be switched to single coils on the Pro model design, allowing easy alterations to your tones that make this one axe an incredibly diverse tool in the world of electric guitars. This Epiphone Les Paul guitar is also decked out with gold hardware, Grover tuners, a rosewood fretboard, maple veneer top, and a beautiful mahogany head. A relatively wide body and evenly spaced frets ensure that your pick or fingers will have plenty of room to maneuver and create amazing audio, from deep bass sounds to screaming melodies. With absolutely no humming when played correctly, the Les Paul Custom will exceed your expectations for electric guitars.Known as the Tuxedo Les Paul design by Epiphone enthusiasts and collectors, this black electric guitar is the same model used by Les Paul throughout decades of many televised and historic performances. It's hardy enough to take a tumble or be used at a gig without a backup, and the set-in neck provides a much better body-to-neck connection than the typical bolt-on guitar. You can give this guitar a workout, and it'll keep up with you without faltering.Plug this beautiful Les Paul Custom Pro into your favorite amplifier and enjoy the sweet sounds for yourself. This black Les Paul Custom is the kind of instrument that suits the high-octane sound of a live gig while allowing easy shifts to any genre or style if you're recording in a studio practicing in a small rehearsal space. Its high level of quality makes it a fitting guitar for a beginner or an expert musician.|

EPIPHONE LES PAUL CUSTOM PRO GUITAR, BLACK AND GOLD, WITH A BUSTED HEADSTOCK....
What could be sadder? Or better? Man, I got a $600 guitar for a little over $150, and all I have to do is pin and glue the headstock back on, add a little bit of wood filler, then finish the neck to my desired shape. A few coats of airbrush black paint and clearcoat, and it's gonna be cherry. Right now I'm just waiting for the glue to dry. The guitar itself is a thing of beauty, with quality abounding. The fit and finish are spot-on, and it just stands out beautifully. The ProBuckers should have an awesome sound, and I can't wait to try the coil-switching and phase reversal options. Man, if you're not afraid to take a chance on your personal abilities and get one of these, you'll save a ton of money, get a killer guitar, and have the pride of knowing you saved a dead axe. There's tons of info on the internet to help you with getting the headstock back on. Just my opinion, though. Hope this helps. Thanks for reading! edit

Used Epiphone Les Paul Custom Review
Well, after playing a Fender Squire with a Frontman 25r for so long I finally had it and got myself a Les Paul. Not a Gibson, but an Epiphone les Paul. Its the same but made with different, cheaper materials. That is not to say that this guitar is cheap and poorly made. Regularly this is a $700-800 guitar( i got mine for $350), and for good reason...The neck feels silky smooth, and is insanely enjoyable to play on. I have had nothing but a Massive smile on my face since Ive bought it. The hardware is topnotch however i did notice some tarnish on the neck pickup ring, but thats not surprising for used equipment. The knobs and switches all work seamlessly and the tune-o-matic bridge is wonderful. Its a Heavy guitar, but If you like Gibsons, you LIKE that heaviness. The Grover tuners are nice looking, but have a tendency to untune easily. The fit and finish of the guitar is much like Gibson, and black gloss finish is beautiful(AND Tough). For Sound: the pickups are Classic Alnico II Humbuckers. The sound much better than any Squire pickup and I enjoyed plying with them clean. Distorted, they play power chords and Riffs wonderfully and I All in all sound heaps better than most guitars Ive played. They do however sound "milky" if you could call the tone that. They have a lot of lows and mids, but lack in upper tone. If you know the stock Gibson Les Paul usually come with 498t and 490R pickups, which sound much"hotter" and edgier than these pickups. WHats great about this Epiphone is that you can easily use Gibson hardware and pickups on it since their identical in fitting and body. Thats always a great plus! I plan to install Gibson pickups in mine soon. All in all, its a great guitar and i feel soooo happy when i play it. It can make a crappy amp sing as well! If your a musician on a budget, get this guitar, used if you can. It's the best investment you can make in a guitar.
Great Practice Amp....I mean Practice Guitar
A great practice amp makes it fun to practice, but it won't replace the glorious sound you get from your rigging/recording amp and pedal board. But that's OK. This EPI is like a great practice amp in terms of it's purpose, for me anyway, which is to be ever-available whenever I'm in the mood to practice. I leave it out without worrying too much about damage like I would a high-end model. The fact is that the build quality is simply excellent, the playability beats my Gibsons (with their silly nibs) but the sound (even with ProBuckers) is not quite as sparkly (at least compared to 490s, SD JBs, or Classic 57s) . It could be that I don't care for BurstBucker-type pups (which I had once and didn't care for them). Still, I'm pleased to own my EPI LP Custom Pro particularly for the value it represents with the playability it offers. HIGHLY recommend for anybody,...novice or serious hobbyist like me. Its a good 'beater' for a pro or even a decent gigging backup.

I was a staunch gibson man. My son said Dad try this guitar. Tell me what you think about it. OK.... I play Epiphones now But I am stil a gibson .
Epiphones have been played on Stage by many Professionals , for a long time. They are a sister Company to Gibson Les Paul ,Made by Gibson guitar Co.Les Paul actually wanted EPIPHONE to be THE Guitar of his choice. Gibson was going to keep its “name” Gibson. and was not going to produce Epiphone Guitars AT all .The Owners ,themselves thought Epiphone would cheapen the Gibson les Paul line.Then neither guitar would sell. One is to expensive ,the other is to cheap. The Fender would have s hayday out selling their guitars at a lower price. Beating out the leading guitar Comp.But as it fell... Gibson is still is the top guitar to own. Epiphone is right behind them. Fender is to ones own playing skills. But still a great guitar to play. Epiphone to me plays as great as all my Gibsons. Those Guitars sell for a exploded high price. It can make or replicate any and all sounds, required for music or everything sound , tone wise. LES PAUL didnt like the fact that Gibson was overpriced . He was an ordinary working joe.He wanted everyone to play and it be affordable to play one. People make so many mistakes about how Epiphones“sounds just like a Gibson”. With proper Anplification you can make any cheap guitar sound great. Epiphone IS NOT a cheap Guitar. Their prices are lower and gradually moving up every day,becomming more expensive . Rightfully so. They do kick well you know .but ..watch them go sky high durring the next year. The Eletronics are all Gibson. Everything even the dish Inlays Gibson at the top of the head. The Tuning Keys I love the pearloid tunners. So much like the old Guitars. Not a cheap Guitar. Looks great under a blacklight. Have you Ever looked at your Guitar under black light? Excellent beautiful. ... not only looks but changes colors as well. Inlays , Pearloid keys POP...... I recomend Epiphone over s Gibson. I own and play them both .My first choice! EPIPHONE. All the time. A players guitar! With a big A...amp (MARSHALL )will blow everyone off the block with sound. Intonations and creation of tones. Rock it. One Review , One person raving about how good it sounds after gluing the neck backed with a pin?and a slight airbrush refinish? The Intonation is not correct that is why it is humming or buzzing frets.. Another job for a Guitar Tech.Refinishing or even repairing a broken headstock is not just that simple. So much more you did not do. That is required for Intonation to be righr.. thats part of the issue that fella is having.It may sound good to him but I doubt your playing out somewhere. Somebody ,no everbody would walk out. The tone will be way out.of tune.You have no tone ,you cant hear it.Your also having problems with the tension rod, as well.Setting yout TOM. To Gibson factory sets. Then change them to you playing style then that will clear that up. Making sure the tension rod and TOM is correct. Otherwise all you have is a guitar that will not tune correctly ,never will. Until the Ussue is fixed. A pin and Glue? More than a PIN , more than GLUE.. It all hinges on Intonation. If you do not have all that correct dont play out in a Vinue . You will embarass your self. Take it to a profesdional tech. Let them do those adjustments unless you know exactly what your doing.?Many make that mistake. I have literally fixed a guitar in 5 minutes. Only because they dont know. I have seen guys riip and riff, a guitar but cannot set tonation A good Tech will charge you a heafty price if uou dont know.. Guitars are a precission Instrument and should be treated with very excellent care. Cleaning is neccessry keep frets clean. Or fingers will turn black. Fixing a cracked headstock is out of most anyones hands unless you know exatly what your doing.Hope this helps those that dont know. Its not that easy.Excellent care and cleaning is what makes a guitar last and keep its reziliant looks.
