The Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Inspired by "1955" Les Paul Custom™ is an historic reissue of the “tuxedo” Les Paul that Les designed to be the most beautiful electric guitar ever made with a striking Ebony finish with gold hardware that would not only look great with a “tux” but would also convince skeptics that the new—and controversial--“solid body” electric guitar was a refined and classy instrument.
The “1955” reissue has the same profile of 50s era Les Paul Customs with a Mahogany body in an Aged Gloss Ebony finish and a 5-layer (black &white) pickguard. The Mahogany neck has a 50s style Rounded “C” profile and 24.75” scale length, a 14” radius, 22 medium jumbo frets, and vintage style Split Diamond Pearloid inlays. The top of the body has 7-layer Ivory and Black color binding while the Ebony fingerboard has single layer Ivory color binding.
This classic reissue is powered by Gibson USA Soapbar P-90 pickups with gold pole screws. P-90 pickups are recognized as the most powerful and versatile single-coil pickups ever made and were Les’ favorite style of pickup for his personal Les Pauls. Each pickup has individual tone and volume controls with Black “Top Hat” knobs with metal pointers. The 3-way Pickup Selector switch has an Amber colored toggle cap.
Gold hardware includes a LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece, Epiphone "Deluxe" machine heads with an 18:1 ratio. The dual action truss rod has a 2-layer black & white cover with "1955 Les Paul Custom" in white. A vintage style hard case and certificate of authenticity case are included.
