Product Details

EPIPHONE Limited Edition Les Paul Custom Blackback Electric Guitar

The Les Paul Custom made it's debut in 1954 after the initial success of the Les Paul Goldtop. Les Paul said he suggested black as the color for the guitar because it looked "classy" and went well with a tuxedo on stage. From that point on, the Les Paul Custom has often been referred to as the "tuxedo" Les Paul. And with it's gold appointments, fully bound body, neck and headstock, and mother-of-pearl inlays the Epiphone Les Paul Custom Blackback is "dressed to kill."

Added Vintage-Vibe
Often, the original finish over Alpine White guitars aged over time and turned the true white color to an off-white, yellow. Epiphone reproduced this look on the Custom Blackback with it's subtle Antique Ivory color giving you the look of a vintage guitar, today. Also - during the 1970's some LP Customs were painting with contrasting black backs.

Classic humbuckers
Epiphone equips the Limited Edition Les Paul Custom Blackback with classic "open-top" humbuckers featuring authentic Alnico II magnets. Patterned after the original Gibson '57 Classics, these pickups combine Alnico-V magnets with enamel wire to give you a tone that is warm and subtle with full, even response that doesn't hold back when you need that classic humbucker crunch! The bridge pickup is slightly over-wound to give you a little more "crunch" when you need it while still maintaining great clarity and warmth. The combination is a unique, limited edition guitar that sounds great and is sure to attract the attention of both guitarists and collectors.

Tonewoods
At the heart of every Les Paul Custom is great tone woods. While all Les Pauls share common design features, the Les Paul Custom differed from the Les Paul Standard in that it's body was solid mahogany without a maple cap. Epiphone's LP Custom Blackback follows that tradition by using a solid, carved mahogany body giving it a slightly mellower tone. Like the originals, attached to the body is a solid mahogany neck with a hand-fitted, glued-in joint for optimum neck-to-body contact and acting almost like one continuous piece of wood. The neck features a very comfortable and fast SlimTaper neck profile that has become the most popular profile found on Les Pauls today. The result is a tribute to Les' timeless guitar design with the sound and feel that you can only get from a real Les Paul guitar.

Loaded with premium add-ons
Other premium features include Epiphone's LockTone Tune-O-Matic/stopbar combination for increased sustain and easy string changes, 16:1 ratio Grover machine heads, a 7-layer bound body, a 5-layer bound headstock and a comfortable single-layer bound rosewood fingerboard. And, as with every Epiphone, it features their Limited Lifetime warranty backed by world-famous 24/7/365 day Gibson Customer Service.
