Epiphone Joe Bonamassa "Black Beauty" Les Paul Custom Outfit in Ebony

Replica of Joe's Rare 1958 "Black Beauty" Les Paul!

Written by

Elliot Stent

Epiphone has collaborated with modern blues virtuoso Joe Bonamassa on a number of occasions, and their latest signature model for the New York-born rocker is based on one of his most treasured guitars - a 1958 "Black Beauty" Les Paul Custom.

Lovingly replicated at an affordable price-point, this stunning limited edition instrument has plenty of vintage charm and a versatile voice - thanks to its trifecta of Epiphone 'ProBucker' pickups. This guitar also comes complete with a Certificate of Authenticity and a hardshell case.

Epiphone Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Custom | Iconic Vintage Specs for Maximum Blues Power!

Joe's 1958 "Black Beauty" Les Paul Custom

Joe Bonamassa has one of the world's largest collections of vintage guitars, and he's constantly on the look-out for rare instruments to add to his renowned "Nerdville" museum. An original 1958 Gibson Les Paul Custom in black - otherwise known as the “Black Beauty” - is a prized acquisition of his, and is one of the most coveted electric guitars ever made.

As the eighth signature model from the pre-eminent blues guitarist of his generation, Joe Bonamassa and Epiphone’s luthiers collaborated for two years at the company's headquarters in Nashville to create this spellbinding tribute guitar.

A Stunning Replica

This beautiful recreation provides an era-correct feel with its fat '50s neck profile and non-weight relieved Mahogany body. Aged binding on the body and neck really adds to the old-school look, with unique vintage tuners, Orange Drop capacitors and CTS potentiometers guaranteeing top performance.

Powered by ProBuckers!

A trio of Epiphone's acclaimed ProBucker pickups give the Joe Bonamassa Black Beauty Les Paul Custom a potent sound. While the ProBucker 3 in the bridge position pumps out plenty of output with a barking mid-range, the ProBucker 2s in the middle and neck are much mellower with a rich and creamy tone that's perfect for capturing Joe's signature sound.
