About the Epiphone Les Paul Custom

Epiphone's affordable take of the Les Paul Custom is very popular. With all the binding, inlay work and style of the Gibson version, the Epiphone Les Paul Custom is a mighty musical force.

The Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro model features upgraded ProBucker pickups. These are special units designed to give players that classic 'PAF' tone in a stock guitar pickup without the cost of a vintage guitar. These pickups have extra switching to allow for more tonal creation, making the guitar more versatile. The Epiphone Les Paul Custom has a thick Mahogany body and set neck with gold hardware for a timeless, elegant look and sound. As well as the iconic Ebony finish, the Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro is available in Alpine White.

Frequently Asked Questions about Epiphone Les Paul Custom

Question: What is the difference between an Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro and a Les Paul Standard Pro Plus Top?
The differences between these two Epiphone Les Paul models are largely cosmetic. The Custom model has gold hardware, larger block inlays on the fingerboard, muliti-ply binding and a split-diamond inlay on the headstock. The standard has single-ply binding over less of the body and has chrome coloured hardware. The fingerboard inlays are slightly smaller trapezoid shapes. Although the Custom is finished in a solid colour, it still has a Maple cap beneath the paint. However, this is not a piece of Flamed Maple like on the Standard Plus Top Pro. Otherwise, all woods and hardware are the same.
Question: What are the upgraded pickups on the Les Paul Custom Pro?
The upgraded pickups on the Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro are ProBuckers. These are specially designed units made to sound as close to vintage PAF pickups as possible. Epiphone have had these designed in Nashville using Alnico II magnets and Nickel Silver bases and covers. This helps provide their customers with pickups that are real contenders. There is no need to upgrade these pickups: they sound fantastic.
Question: Where are the extra switches located?
The extra controls for engaging the special coil tap feature are located within the Tone control knobs.
