On the 9th of June 2015 Les Paul’s incredible legacy reached 100 years of age and as you would expect came a treasure trove of anniversary new release Gibson Les Paul’s. To the surprise of many Epiphone would get in on the fun with a new, special edition guitar that’s simply stunning.
This 1955 inspired Les Paul Custom has the same profile of 50s era Les Paul Customs with a Mahogany body in an Aged Gloss Ebony finish and a 5-layer (black &white) pickguard. The Mahogany neck has a 50s style Rounded “C” profile and is glued deep into the body with Titebond glue so the entire instrument resonates as a single piece of wood. The top of the body has 7-layer Ivory and Black color binding while the Ebony fingerboard has single layer Ivory color binding. The neck has 24.75” scale length, a 14” radius, 22 medium jumbo frets, and vintage style Split Diamond Pearloid inlays.
This isn’t simply a fancy looking guitar, its been designed with a bounty of features and touches usually found on high end models so you end up with a guitar that feels, sounds and plays incredibly well.
