The Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro is a tribute to one of the best loved guitars of the last century: the Gibson Les Paul Custom. And they've released a Limited Edition version with a Koa Top to make the guitar really stand out!
If you have always wanted a Gibson Les Paul Custom but couldn't quite afford the hefty price tag, then go for the classy Epiphone Custom Pro. It still has the ProBucker pickups for superb gain tones with the versatile coil-splitting for singlecoil sounds, as well as the all-gold hardware. It wouldn't be a Custom without that!
The top wood on this guitar is what really makes it so special. Koa is only found in one place on Earth, in Hawaii. So as you can imagine, the wood is quite difficult to source because Koa trees have to fall down naturally before they can be used ot make guitars.
This is why Koa guitars will often be limited edition as this Custom Pro is. The Koa looks stunning and will compliment the traditional mahogany back and neck beautifully! Topped off with a rosewood neck for lush, warm sounding Les Paul.
The Epiphone ProBuckers are highly regarded as the best pickups that Epiphone have made. Not because of the fantastic humbucking sound that they achieve, but because of the versatility of the pickups when you split them. You get real, useable singlecoil sounds that make the guitar capable of doing any genre of music. They're warm PAF-style pickups with a bit more bite in the top-end so you can really cut through the mix.
