OVERVIEW

A professionally upgraded Les Paul Custom in a limited edition Silverburst.

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 originally suggested black as a great color for a new Les Paul because it looked "classy" and went well with a tuxedo on stage. Now, you can own this Les Paul Custom in a limited edition Silverburst finish. And with its chrome appointments, fully bound body, neck and headstock and mother-of-pearl inlays, we think you'll still agree that the Limited Edition Epiphone Les Paul Custom is "dressed to kill." Now featuring ProBucker 2 and ProBucker 3 humbucking pickups, chrome hardware, multi-binding on body (top and back), neck and headstock as well as split-diamond mother-of-pearl headstock and block fretboard inlays, it's as gorgeous as it is deadly. Case sold separately.

Went to the music store for a tuner and saw this on the wall. Always wanted a Gibson LP Custom Silverburst but the cost was a bit much. I really looked this one over for any flaws or faults as it is made in China and I couldn't find any. I was impressed with the binding,tuners,finish,coil tap,and weight. I have quite a few guitars and two of my favorites are my '99 Gibson LP Studio Plus w/ebony fretboard, and my '82 Electra Workingman X280, so as you can see this Epi had some high standards to meet. I bought it on my way to our practice session and intended on bringing it right back if it turned out to be a flop. Plugged it into my Line 6 Flextone II with a M13 effects board for flavor and I was very impressed with the action,tone,high end,crunch factor,and weight. Our band leader was impressed as well and remarked on the sounds that came from this beautifully constructed axe. There is no thought of returning it and I would say that it ranks up there with my favorite players. The coil tap function is a nice addition for flexibility and I like the sound of the pups. Nicely done Epiphone, nicely done!

This is for SKU - H79044000001000 (Silverburst)

This guitar got very positive reviews and I have a Gibson LP Studio in Silverburst so I thought I'd give the Epi a try to see the differences.

Night and day on this one - buy the Gibson. Someone in Epiphone's quality control department is sleeping.

The finish is very good and there don't seem to be any nicks or dings like others have mentioned. However, I've got fret buzz all over the place and the neck isn't straight. I'm guessing someone adjusted the truss rod in an attempt to get rid of the buzz. FAIL. In addtion I get a little noise from the strings and I'm guessing it's because of the massivly deep slots in the nut. No reason for them to be THIS deep. To top it off the knobs sit very high up on the pots. They all sit pretty high off the guitar (you can easily see the nut and threads on the pots). But on in particluar looks like it is on the very tip of the pot. It looks like you have it pulled up for the coil splitting when you actually don't. Epic fail on quality control here.

I recently purchased an Epi LP Special for a fraction of the cost of this one, but the Special's neck feels great to play. This one does not.

The pick ups on this guitar are ok, but no where close to the Gibson.

I'll take this one to a luthier to get the issues resolved and a new nut (likely new pickups too) and I'm sure it will be great. But for this kind of money, my first upgrade shouldn't be spending a decent amount of cash to get factory problems corrected.

Roll the dice. I have purchased some really great guitars from Epiphone in the last few years, but it seems like a crapshoot as far as a "good one" or a "bad one".

    Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Custom PRO Electric Guitar:

    After ordering the new Gibson Les Paul Studio SR in Wine Red I got to looking around the site and came across this one. I have always wanted a Gibson Les Paul Custom, but the price was quite out of reach. From all I have read in reviews, Epiphone appears to have really raised the bar on quality in the past few years. So I decided to take a chance with this.

    What an absolutely gorgeous guitar! After looking it over quite closely, everything appears to be perfect. Contrary to some reviews I have read, this one came set up perfectly. I plugged it into my Fender Mustang II amp and tuned it up and began to play. The neck profile is quite comfortable, and the guitar is easy to play. The pickups sound great, with very good tone. The split coils sound good too, and are very reminiscent of the Strat sound. I ended that session totally impressed!

    It's kinda hard to believe that all this guitar comes at such a low price, but it does!

      guitar is everything I expected
      but you can't just plug into an amp and expect great sound
      without some conditioning there is a sound kind of like a duck on some chords

        Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Custom PRO Electric Guitar:

        This guitar is priced way too low. It is worth 3 times the current selling price. Epiphone has stepped up it's game and is hard to beat by any named brand guitar. I mean any named brand guitar. If you want to treat youself to an exciting experience and you love music, then go to your local music store and play one. Then call MF and order one( they have the best prices as well as the best stock)

        Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Custom PRO Electric Guitar:

        This guitar is definitely a beauty. The finish is nice, the probucker pickups are decent sounding. When I got the guitar, the action on the strings was really high and the neck wasn't straight. I tried lowering the action by lowering the bridge, and I got a lot of fret buzz and the action was still a little high. Quality control in the guitar set up department at epiphone is definitely lacking. There's a sticker on the guitar that says set up and inspected in the USA, however the guitar wasn't set up properly. (This is the 2nd epiphone les paul I bought with the same problem) I had to take it to a guitar shop to have the neck straightened out and the action lowered without causing fret buzz. After installing high grade wiring, switch, pots, and 57 classic pickups, this guitar is now a beast. The guitar shop I brought it to had Kirk Hammet's back stage Gibson les paul that he rehearsed on before shows, and we compared my guitar and his, and the owner and a few other guitar players in the store said mine sounded just as good if not better :) Overall I'm pretty happy with the purchase, but I wish epiphone would step up their quality control.

            As soon as I plugged this guitar in, it cut right through with stunning clarity. In overdrive, it has a nice thick crunch, without being muddy. I got this to replace a vintage 1979 Gibson Les Paul. With this Epiphone, I don't miss the Gibson at all.

            Nice guitar for the money. Not its Gibson cousin but still quality built. Pelham Blue is beautiful. Slight neck and bridge adjustment were required. Pickups are good not great. The knobs are a little high. Fretwork is good. Inlay work is good. Overall look is very good.

              I know multiple musician snobs will go out of their way to slam Epiphone guitars, but I have to say, this one honestly breaks the mold. Being intrigued by the fantastic silver burst, I picked this guitar up recently and was impressed. Of course, it's not a two grand Gibson, but it sure as heck beats paying for one. Completely worth every penny.

                I LOVE this guitar!!! This is my third or fourth experience with Epiphone and I love their work. I have an acoustic Epiphone and a Schecter diamond series bass. I have been playing stringed instruments for over 20 years. This guitar has a wonderful sound and easy playability. Kudos to MF customer service. The first guitar I ordered started splitting from the head behind the nut down the neck lengthwise. They replaced it no questions asked.
