This has been a well taken care of Custom, the most wear is on the gold hardware. There is one small ding on top by the volume control that doesnt even show up in the pictures.
The Les Paul Custom made its debut in 1954 after the initial success of the Les Paul Goldtop. The Les Paul Custom has often been referred to as the "tuxedo" Les Paul. And with its gold appointments, fully bound body, neck and headstock and pearloid inlays, we think you'll agree that the Epiphone Les Paul Custom is "dressed to kill".
Epiphone's LP Custom follows tradition by using a solid, carved mahogany body which gives the guitar a slightly mellow tone. Like the originals, our Les Paul Custom is fitted with a solid mahogany neck and hand-fitted with a glued-in joint for optimum neck-to-body contact which allows the neck and body to resonate almost like one continuous piece of wood. The neck features a very comfortable and fast "SlimTaper™ profile. 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.
At the heart of the Les Paul Custom is a pair of Epiphone Alnico Classic™ humbucker pickups. Patterned after Gibson '57 Classics, these pickups combine Alnico-V magnets with enamel wire to give you a tone that is both warm and subtle with a full and even response that doesn't hold back when you need that classic humbucker crunch! The neck pickup is an Alnico Classic while the bridge pickup is an Alnico Classic Plus. The "Plus" is slightly over-wound for a higher output without sacrificing its rich, vintage tone.
Other premium features include:
Tune-o-matic/Stopbar combination bridge
16:1 ratio Grover® machine heads,
7-layer bound body
5-layer bound headstock
a comfortable single-layer bound rosewood fingerboard.
