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 Tonewoods
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.

Added Vintage-Vibe
Epiphone has reproduced the beautiful faded look of vintage Les Paul Customs with an œAntique Ivory finish that looks just like a well-preserved vintage Les Paul Custom. Plus, Epiphone has also reproduced the œBlackback, a common feature in '70s-era Les Paul Customs. Finally, Epiphone equips this Limited. Edition LP Custom with classic "open-window" ProBuckers, each voiced for maximum response for lead, rhythm or any combo you choose. The Limited Edition 1970's Inspired Les Paul Custom Blackback PRO sounds like the real thing because it is the real thing! And at fraction for what youd pay for a vintage original.

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.

    Comments about Epiphone Les Paul Custom Blackback PRO Electric Guitar:

    I love the guitar. It is just what I expected. It looks beautiful, everything works fine, and it sounds great. It may not be a Gibson, but for the price, I don't think you can beat it.
