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.

Features
  • Mahogany body
  • Carved mahogany top
  • 24.75" Scale set-in mahogany neck
  • Rosewood fretboard
  • 22 Medium jumbo frets
  • ProBucker 2 neck humbucker with coil-split
  • ProBucker 3 bridge humbucker with coil-split
  • Tune-o-matic bridge with LockTone™ Stopbar tailpiece
  • Grover tuners
  • Block inlay

    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".

    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.

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

    I bought a used level 3, in Pelham blue, it was beautiful except for a slight inperfection which I knew it had. The guitar plays very well, it was set up just like I liked, it sounded very well with all the settings you can use through the pups. It took me a while to get used to the thick laquer coating on the neck, but a rag for my hands and neck did the trick. This is one amazing guitar by Epiphone! It plays as well as my Gibson Studio (which I love), I will keep it in my arsonal from now on. I suggest you get one while you can.

      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.

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

            This was my first les paul and I do not regret buying it. I performed with it live once in front of a couple hundred and it was great. It has a decent clean sound and an amazing distorted sound!
            Though there are two main issues in the guitar:
            1. The truss rod feels loose and give a buzzing sound. But it doesn't shown when the guitar is amped up.
            2. When switching from rhythm to treble the switch may not happen sometimes in certain situations. I caught it happening 2 to 4 times in the past 3 months that i had it. It happens when the pick up volume/tone are at extremely different values.

            Though, these problems can be fixed easily and for not a lot of money. And if the pickups are changed it would make for an amazing live guitar.

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

            This a great deal. I bought an alpine white Epi custom in 2002. I bought it instead the Gibby version because I was at the Gibson Gallery at the mall on the old grounds of Opryland and compared the two side by side. There was absolutely no difference in the feel or playability of the two. Only difference was the pickups and electronics. Back then there was quite a difference in the Epi pickups, they just didn't have the power or tone of the Gibsons. \I paid five and a half bills for the guitar and hardshell case. It had to be special ordered as alpine white was not very common but was still offered. It took six months to get it, then that was after a lot of pressure by my local dealer. The guitar actually ended up being built in the Nashville factory but still had the Epi logo and electronics. One year later I purchased Burstbucker 2 pickups, Gibson switches and pots and had them installed by my Lead guitarist who is also our tech as he is very talented in that area. So for eight and a half bills total investment, compared to over three G's,I have the perfect guitar with climax inducing tone and feel/playability. But the current Epi "PRO" pickups are excellent and virtually identical to the Gibby's in tone. I have the "Alnico Classics" in my Epi white pearl Dot Royale that I just got out of layaway two weeks ago. Sounds like a Gibson to me, with great lows, sparkling bell like highs and midrange bark to fool the best blues players when you want it. Paid four and a quarter compared to 3000 + for a custom shop limited editon guitar. Love My Epis

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

            Epiphone hits the nail on the head again! Hands-down; they produce some of the finest guitars that I have ever owned and played. The fit, form, and finish on this guitar is flawless. Out of the box- the set-up is near-perfect. The ProBucker PUPs sound excellent coming through either my new Blackstar ID-260 or my Line 6 Flextone amps. Fretwork is clean and comfortable. Tuners are top-shelf. The Silverburst color coupled with the immaculate binding from Headstock to Fretboard and around the body is simply beautiful. The output jack is tight and feels very durable. Overall weight- neck to body ratio feels good and comfortable to play whether sitting or strapped on. The black volume and tone dials look great against the Silverburst color and again feel very durable. For the price- this is a fine instrument. I already own 2 other Epi's as well a couple Gibson LP's. Glad that I made the choice to add this guitar to my arsenal! Keep up the good work Epiphone!
