Celebrate Les Paul's 100th Birthday

The limited-edition Epiphone Les Paul Custom 100th Anniversary Outfit solidbody electric guitar celebrates everything that is iconic about the guitar's design and the man who is responsible for the way we play and hear music today.

And the two ProBucker humbucking pickups offer PAF and coil-split tones for sonic variety. The Les Paul Custom 100th Anniversary Outfit honors 100 years of a true icon.

About Les Paul

Much of what we enjoy about modern music and guitar playing can be traced back to Les Paul. His recording career as a solo artist, and as a duo with Mary Ford, generated multiple hit records. He invented the use of multitrack recording and guitar looping and was an early pioneer in the use of reverb and delay. But his most iconic work was done with the solidbody electric guitar. And the sound of music changed forever when Gibson put the Les Paul into production in the early 1950s.

Beautiful appointments

The Les Paul Custom 100th Anniversary Outfit is dressed up for a birthday celebration. Its truss rod cover, Tune-o-matic bridge and tailpiece, and Grover Imperial tuners are decked out in 24K gold for a regal look. The headstock and fretboard are inlaid in a combination of abalone and pearloid for an attractive contrast to the mahogany top. And this attractive instrument is capped off with a sparkling Zirconium stone inlaid in the dot of the "i" in the Epiphone logo.

ProBuckers

The two ProBucker humbucking pickups in the Les Paul Custom 100th Anniversary Outfit are designed at Gibson's pickup factory in Nashville, Tennessee. These pickups are re-creations of the classic Gibson PAF pickups that are so sought after. Sweetwater players immediately noticed that they offer the same powerful midrange and crystal-clear top end of great vintage Les Pauls. And push-pull pots allow you to split the coils to access bell-like single-coil tones.

Surprise!

Purchased the Natural finish for the ascetics just to add to the collection...and was very surprised at the sound quality and fit and finish of this guitar. I have many Les Paul's to include Customs, signatures, and Deluxe's, and this guitar stands toe to toe with most. (Not All!) but brilliant just the same. I have not played any guitar in this price range that rivals this axe...Period! Case is awesome too! Just purchased the Cherry one to have the set!!!

Are you sure this isnt a Gibson?

It sounds great and plays great, I only have one gripe. I fear playing it because of the gold plateing, wearing this off would spoil a fantastic guitar.

Les would be proud

I have always wanted a LP guitar, but have never had the means to afford a Gibson LP. I don't play professionally, so spending 2 or 3 months pay was totally out of the question. I do, however, like special editions, and upon seeing this guitar, I decided to take the plunge. Epiphone has improved leaps and bounds from my early experience with them in the 80's, and after seeing the build quality of this LP, I can say that they now rival, and, in almost all cases, surpass any of their competition in quality for the price. The finish is virtually flawless, the binding and inlays are very, very nice, the hardware is better than I expected, and the tonal combinations that I have been able to coax out of this guitar have been nothing short of eye opening. I learned to play on my fathers' 1957 Gibson Les Paul JR, and the neck on this guitar reminds me of that feel. I like it even more than the slimmer neck on my Epi Dot. Sweetwater's setup was excellent, and I know this because I was able to show off my new guitar to a couple of very accomplished players that I know. They were both very impressed with the instrument as a whole, and with the playability out of the box. So much so, that one of them (a die hard Fender guy), is actively looking for an Epiphone to add to his arsenal. And told me that, once he finds the model he wants, he is going to purchase from Sweetwater just for their setup and inspection process. To me, that speaks volumes. If you are looking for a LP, but, like me, can't spend a small fortune on a Gibson, look to Epiphone. This is essentially a special edition LP Pro, so, even if you don't like the gold, or don't care for the added goodies, (the hard case and included extras are very nice), these are excellent instruments that deserve a better reputation than they sometimes get. Try one.

100th Anniversary Les Paul epiphone

I never write reviews but this time I must I live in the islands and dealing with sweetwater was a pleasure the way they look after people is from a time gone by. So first thanks for that. The guitar I was blown away with the finish set up weight and sound of this guitar. I play blues just for my self and enjoyed the sounds I get out of this guitar. Everything about the process of buying shipping even the way it was packaged with care and attention. Icant thank sweetwater enough just to say I will be ordering other music gear in the future you guys and girls have made my day, thanks.

Beautiful machine...

Love the cherry, it just has one flaw; those hideous knobs. Put the black speed knobs on it like the Antique Natural has, and then we're talkin'. The binding color also needs to be black. I DO like the rectangular inlays versus the trapezoidal ones that you see on most Les Pauls. I also like the inlay on the first fret, whereas on most LP's, the first fret doesn't have one.
