The Worlds Most Beautiful Electric Guitar: 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 electric guitar was not a fad but a superb and challenging instrumentthe king of all electric solid body guitars. So, Les requested a Les Paul with a custom finish and gold hardware that would look sophisticated on any size stage. The Les Paul Custom quickly became one of the most recognized guitars in the world and Les himself used his Les Paul Custom in concerts, 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 a stunning figured KOA top with a Natural finish and Epiphones superior ProBucker humbucker pickups with coil-splitting, we think youll agree that the Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO KOA is indeed one of the worlds most beautiful guitars.
Les Paul Power With a KOA Top: The Ltd. Ed. Les Paul Custom PRO KOA features a warm, tone rich figured KOA top along with the Customs traditional solid mahogany body in a rare Natural finish and 5-ply white and black binding on the KOA top and Mahogany back as well as the Custom classic headstock. Just like Les personal Custom, the Les Paul Custom PRO KOA has a solid Mahogany 24.75 scale neck with white binding thats hand-fitted and glued-in for optimum neck-to-body contact so the Les Paul Custom PRO KOA resonates as single piece of wood. The Rosewood fingerboard has pearloid block inlays, a 12 radius, a 1.68 Graphtech® nut, and 22 medium-jumbo frets.
ProBucker Power With Coil-Splitting: The Les Paul Custom PRO KOA is powered by Epiphones critically acclaimed ProBucker pickups, a 4-wire design with coil-splitting inspired by Gibsons legendary BurstBuckers. ProBucker pickups recreate the sound of the original hand-wound PAF humbuckers made by Seth Lover at the Kalamazoo factory in the late 50s. Epiphone ProBuckers feature all the same ingredients as original PAF and BurstBucker pickups, including Alnico II magnets, Elektrisola magnet wire, 18% nickel silver unit bases and covers, and pole screws, slugs and bobbins manufactured to Gibsons original specifications. The result is a phenomenal pickup that, over time, will develop the subtle, one-of-a-kind characteristics that you can only get from vintage humbuckers. And best of all, those unique pickup characteristics will give your guitar a unique voice. No two vintage Les Pauls sound alike and ProBuckers give your Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO KOA a one-of-a-kind sound that will get better the more you play. The Les Paul Custom PRO KOA includes a ProBucker-2 humbucker in the neck position that is slightly overwound for greater definition at higher volumes. The bridge pickup is a ProBucker-3 humbucker, which is also slightly overwound to give your solos a wide tonal range. Each pickup features coil-splitting via a push/pull control at each pickups volume knob, which really gives the Les Paul Custom PRO KOA the ability to be any guitar you can imagine. All volume and tone controls feature full-size 500K ? potentiometers matched with Epiphones rugged, all-metal, 3-way toggle pickup selector switch for long-lasting performance.
All-Metal Epiphone Hardware: Epiphones reputation for great guitars extends to its unbeatable hardware and the Epiphone Les Paul Custom PRO KOA delivers with a standard-setting gold LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and a gold Stopbar tailpiece for superb tuning stability. Plus gold Grover® machine heads with an 18:1 ratio for fast and reliable tuning. A hard case is optional.
