A premium Epiphone Les Paul that's unlike any other in celebration of the 100th birthday of the late, great Les Paul: the Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Custom 100th Anniversary Outfit Electric Guitar.

Epiphone, the House of Stathopoulo, is proud to introduce the Limited Edition Les Paul Custom 100th Anniversary Outfit to celebrate the 100th birthday of the man that changed music history forever. This striking, unique Les Paul blends all of Les' favorite Les Paul appointments including beautiful 24K gold-plated hardware, elegant abalone and pearloid inlays, a vintage Epiphone logo with a Zirconium Gemstone, and a pair of Epiphone's acclaimed ProBucker pickups with coil-splitting. What's more? This stunning Limited Edition Les Paul comes complete with a special 100th Anniversary hardshell case, a bound Certificate of Authenticity, a vintage-style strap and commemorative picks!

Throughout 2015, Epiphone commemorates the 100th birthday of Les Paul, the Wizard or Waukesha, the Thomas Edison of rock 'n' roll, and a lifelong fan and friend of the Epiphone and Gibson families. For those of you who don't know, the Les Paul design can be traced back to Epiphone. Les Paul was a frequent visitor at Epi Stathopoulo's Manhattan factory, and this factory in Manhattan is where Les made the first prototypes of the Les Paul guitar, "The Log". "I knew Epi Stathopoulo and the Epiphone people very well and loved their instruments," Les stated in Les Paul, In His Own Words, "Working on Sundays, I took a length of 4x4 Pine, put an Epiphone neck on it, wound a couple of homemade pickups, and mounted them on the wood. Then I added a bridge and Vibrola tailpiece, strung it up, and I had The Log. I was looking for volume, tone, and sustain that could be controlled, still chasing the idea that started with stretching a guitar string over a section of railroad rail." Les remained an Epiphone fan for the rest of his life, and this Limited Edition Les Paul Custom 100th Anniversary Outfit is a fitting, eye-catching tribute to the world's most popular rock 'n' roll guitar and its equally esteemed inventor.

Now that you have some history behind this iconic model and its highly revered inventor, let's talk some more about the Limited Edition Les Paul Custom 100th Anniversary Outfit. Available in a Cherry finish with a mahogany veneer or a Natural finish with a grade-AAA flame maple veneer, this gorgeous Les Paul features the classic Les Paul body with a mahogany back. For added aesthetic appeal, the top and the back on both models showcase elegant 5-ply cream and black binding. The neck is carved from mahogany into a fast 1960s SlimTaper D-profile, and is glued into the body using a classic Mortise and Tenon joint. The rosewood fingerboard plays like a dream thanks to its traditional 24.75" scale length, its cozy 1-11/16" nut width, its 12" radius and its medium-jumbo frets. The fingerboard is also adorned with single-ply cream binding as well as pearloid block inlays featuring shimmering abalone triangles. The traditional "Sloped Dovewing" headstock boasts a 24K gold-plated metal truss rod cover engraved with "Les Paul 100th Anniversary", multi-ply bindings, the original Epiphone pearloid "Vine" inlay, and a vintage-style '40s-era Epiphone logo with the "I" dotted with a Zirconium gemstone. On the back of the headstock is a commemorative decal that reads, "The Legacy of Les Paul: 1915-2015". Other premium features include a set of classy Grover Imperial button tuning machines and a rock-solid LockTone Tune-O-Matic/Stopbar tailpiece combo.

For that classic vintage voice with modern versatility, the Limited Edition Les Paul Custom 100th Anniversary Outfit comes equipped with a pair of Epiphone's PAF-style ProBucker humbuckers with coil-tapping capabilities. First made in the late '50s in Kalamazoo, Michigan and designed by the legendary Seth Lover, the "Patent Applied For" pickups are considered by most to be the "Holy Grail" of guitar pickups. With the ProBucker pickups, Epiphone has faithfully re-created the distinctive sonic qualities of those classic humbuckers. In order to ensure that elusive tone of the originals, the ProBuckers utilize the same materials as the originals such as Alnico II magnets, Elektrisola magnet wire, 18% nickel silver unit bases and covers, and pole screws, slugs, and bobbins manufacturered to Gibson's original specs. The pickups are wired through a classic control layout that consists of a 3-way toggle and independent volume & tone control knobs for each pickup. Providing you with an extensive sonic palette, the volume control for each pickup features a push/pull pot that allows you to tap into single-coil tones on-the-fly.
