Elegance and performance in one.

The Les Paul Custom made its debut in 1954 after the initial success of the Les Paul Goldtop. Les Paul himself suggested his namesake guitar needed a new and classy finish that would go well with a tuxedo on stage. From that point on, the Les Paul Custom Blackback was referred to as the "white tuxedo" Les Paul. And with its gold appointments, fully bound body, neck and headstock, and pearloid inlays, you'll agree that the Epiphone Les Paul Custom Blackback is "dressed to kill." Case sold separately.

Great Tonwoods
While all Les Pauls share common design features, the Les Paul Custom Blackback differed from the Les Paul Standard with a solid mahogany body but without a maple cap. Epiphone's LP Custom Blackback follows that tradition by using a solid, carved mahogany body for a slightly mellower tone. Like the originals, the Epiphone Les Paul Custom Blackback is fitted with a solid mahogany neck that is hand-fitted with a glued-in joint for optimum neck-to-body contact, which allows the body and neck to act like one continuous piece of wood. The neck features a very comfortable and fast "SlimTaper “D” profile that has become the most popular profile found on today’s Les Pauls. 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.

Classic Electronics
At the heart of the Les Paul Custom Blackback is a pair of Epiphone Alnico Classic Open-Top humbucking 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, 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.

Loaded with premium add-ons
Other premium features include Epiphone's LockTone Tune-o-matic/Stopbar combination bridge 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.
