Gibson Les Paul Custom Pro

VIEWS: 13 PAGES: 1

									The Les Paul Custom made its debut in 1954 after the initial success of the Les Paul Goldtop. Mr. Les Paul
himself wanted to convey to audiences that the solid body electric guitar was not a fad but a superb and
challenging instrument and that his signature axe, the Les Paul, was the king of all electric solid body guitars.
So, Les requested a Les Paul with a custom color finish in solid black and solid white with gold hardware that
would blend well with a tuxedo.

The result was the Les Paul Custom, or the “tuxedo” Les Paul, as it became known among fans. The Les Paul
Custom quickly became one of the most recognized guitars in the world and Les himself used his Les Paul
Custom in concert, on his weekly television show with wife Mary Ford and on his album covers, including his
famous duet with pal Chet Atkins, Chester and Lester.

Now with Epiphone’s superior ProBucker™ humbucker pickups with coil-tapping along with the Custom’s
classic gold hardware, fully bound body, neck and headstock, and pearloid inlays, we think you’ll agree that
the Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO is “dressed to kill.”
