Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro (SOLD)


Old English White Top and ‘Black Back’

Gibson 490R & 498T pickups

Upgraded circuitry


Here’s a Les Paul you don’t see every day… in fact, you probably won’t find another one exactly like it as it started life as an Ebony Black Custom Pro, but the top has been refinished here at the workshop in Old English White – a recreation of the ‘Black Back’ model, you could say.

In addition to the refinish, it’s received a set of Gibson 490R & 498T pickups, Switchcraft Toggle & Jack Socket, CTS pots, Orange Drop caps, braided cable throughout AND phase switching in the middle position via a push / push neck tone control pot.

It’s also got a Gotoh Tailpiece and upgraded Bridge to replace the stock items. To complete this fantastic Custom, the frets have been fully levelled, re-crowned and polished. With a comprehensive set up completing the guitar, it also plays as great as it looks and sounds.
