A menacing limited edition Paul.
There's nothing cooler than wielding a limited-edition axe like the Epiphone Limited Edition Midnight Les Paul Custom. Now you don't have to be a rock star to own one. Each month of 2005 will see the release of a different, unique guitar that will only be made in limited numbers. While based on legendary past models, each instrument will be customized with special finishes, hardware, pickups, and other choice trimmings to make them genuine collectibles.
Based on the original Les Paul Custom design, this Midnight version has an ebony finish, 2 EMG 81 pickups, and black hardware to create a particularly dark visage. Construction is all Custom Paul: mahogany body with a maple top, set mahogany neck, a rosewood fingerboard with block inlays, and body, neck, and headstock binding. 2 volume and 2 tone controls with a 3-way toggle switch. The EMG pickups provide ultrafat tone with brain-shredding distortion. The white binding and pearloid inlays add some flash to the inky look.

This guitar is purely amazing. First of all, right out of the box I didnt have to set up the action. The EMG's tonal response well exceeded my expectations. The neck feels so good and its perfect for fast riffs and screaming solos. The body with the black hardware is just stunning. I would have never expected this good of a guitar. The quality and craftsmanship put into this beauty is superior to half the gibsons ive played. This is my new jem, I just can't put it down. If you want a screaming les paul, get this one!! It's well worth the money. Very Well Done Epiphone!!!!
This guitar is amazing. EMGs are insane. Switch out the strings as soon as you get this though. I play with GHS ZWs and they really sing through those EMGs. Craftsmanship is great. I highly recommend this guitar, you won't be disappointed.
The guy below is an idiot. Gibson owns Epiphone. Not everyone an drop a grand on a low quality Gibson. Thats why Epiphone is here. To provided good guitars for minimum price.
I just got this guitar and it is awesome. The EMG buckers are increadible. This guitar is great for playing all kinds of music. The clean tone is excellent and when plugged into distortion you can easily sound like Metallica or any metal group. Overall this guitar looks and sounds great. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a solid ax without spending a fortune.
Great guitar. The looks, sound, and playability of this guitar is outstanding. Seems like these guitars coming out of Korea are getting better and better. The Emg's really make this guitar an outstanding value. Grover tuners, tuneomatic bridge, and the multiply binding really set this ax off.
This guitar is exactly what i wanted to see out of epiphone... a Les Paul with EMG's thats affordable. Epiphone's quality compared to their price is very good. Adding EMG's to an already solid instrument was definetley the way to go. Definetley good bang for your buck.
Very nice guitar for the price. I have a transparent black sunburst les paul that I put zakk EMGs in and I would say I prefer the 81, 85 combination over the two 81s, but still this guitar is smoking hot and the easy access battery door that they put in on the back cover was a brilliant idea. The playability of the neck and fretboard is awesome, and intonation was perfect straight out of the box. Don't waste your time on the regular epiphone les when you can get this one with the EMGs for the same price.
This guitar is no con as described in previous reviews... This guitar lives up to its name and stands equally to any high end les pauls. This guitar is armed with two high powered emg pickups made to shred and is built with flawless quality. Don't allow your decition to come down to the fact it's not a Gibson, this guitar is so much more than something that should be judged by brand over quality. Honestly, this guitar has everything anyone could want in Gibson for a fraction of the cost not to mention a rare find of a modern metal look in a classic guitar. This guitar is great although, the only thing I recommend is to change the bridge pickup to an 85 emg, to have the classic 81 85 emg combo.
For one, my job consists of trying out every piece we get in our store. Checking for flaws. I do this so I can use it as a selling point and I am honest in my reviews. This guitar is built like a TANK. The EMG's are absolutely one of the most powerful sounding pickups that I've played. The frets are nicley dressed. The rosewood is extremely dark and smooth. I have always hated the sound of a clean Les Paul. The clean pure sound of a Strat is in my opinion way better But with these EMG's it's not all that bad. Beautiful sound not as chimmy as a single coils but this has some of the punch of a Strat. Through a Dirty amp this thing has a great blues tone. Infinite sustain. Through a High gain amp this baby Screams. The bridge Has that crunch that's chunky yet holds it's brighntess. The neck Pickup sounds like Zakk's Grail dead on. Perfect Guitar for the price. The only reason I didn't give it 10 stars on overall this would be better with an ebony fretboard.
My friend owns this guitar and it plays like a dream. The action is perfect and has no buzz anywhere. It has great treble levels as well as bass levels....very well balanced. I would get this guitar before the price goes up.
