Epiphone, the House of Stathopoulo, is celebrating Les Paul’s 100th birthday with the new Ltd. Ed. Les Paul Custom 100th Anniversary Outfit. The Les Paul Custom 100th Anniversary Outfit features a stunning one-of-a-kind Les Paul that combines Les’ favorite features with dazzling 24K Gold Plated hardware, Abalone and Pearloid inlay, a vintage Epiphone logo with a Zirconium Gemstone, acclaimed ProBucker pickups with coil-splitting, plus a 100th Anniversary hardshell case, vintage-style strap, Commemorative Picks, and more!
Les Paul was a lifelong friend to the Epiphone family, and with founder Epi Stathopoulo’s encouragement, Les used the Epiphone factory in New York to build his first solid body guitar. Les continued to be an Epiphone fan for the rest of his life, and the beautiful new Ltd. Ed. Les Paul Custom 100th Anniversary Outfit is a suitable and dazzling tribute to the most popular rock & roll guitar in the world, and its equally revered inventor.
“They are damn fine instruments, I swear by them,” Les said of Epiphone Les Pauls, “A kid can get an Epiphone and have something worth something, not a hunk-of-junk like the other brands. He can learn well on one and have it and play it the rest of his life.”
The new Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Les Paul Custom 100th Anniversary Outfit features a classic Mahogany body with the time-honored Les Paul profile in both a Cherry finish with a Mahogany veneer, as well as a Natural finish with an AAA Flame Maple Veneer. The Custom 100th Anniversary Les Paul includes a 24K Gold plated metal truss rod cover engraved with “Les Paul 100th Anniversary,” and powerful ProBucker™ Humbuckers with coil-splitting. Every Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Les Paul Custom 100th Anniversary Outfit also comes with a Hardshell Case featuring the 100th Anniversary Commemorative Logo, a vintage-style strap, three Commemorative Picks, and a Certificate of Authenticity in a presentation binder.
