Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro "2nd" w/ Hard Case, ProBuckers & Fresh Pro Setup - Gloss Ebony
Availability: In Stock
Condition: Seller Refurbished
This Les Paul Custom Pro is a striking beautiful axe, dressed in an Ebony finish. If James Bond were a guitar, this would be the new 007. Since it is based on the original Les Paul design, the Custom has a pair of Epi's great ProBucker pickups. These PUPs are scatterwound and completely capture the iconic PAF tone. Like its more expensive siblings, it has a set mahogany neck, and a rosewood fretboard with block inlays. The top and back of the body, and the headstock have multi-ply bindings. Of course, the neck is bound also.
Electronics are the time-proven 2 volume and 2 tone controls, with a 3-way toggle switch. What sets this guitar apart is the versatility that these pickups offer. Epi wisely added coil-tapping capability to the ProBuckers, opening up a whole new variety of usable sonic possibilities. Pulling up on a volume pot puts the corresponding pickup into single coil mode. But that's not all. Pulling up on the neck pickup's tone pot puts the two pickups out of phase! Now, in addition to the classic LP roar, you can access bright chiming single tone sounds...and even a bit of cluck! And since they are tappable individually, you have the ability to blend humbucking tones with single coil sounds...Very cool.
Tuning stability is excellent thanks to the smooth Grover tuners and Epiphone's LockTone bridge & tailpiece (a major improvement over the 1950's “Loose-O-Matic” design).
Included with your guitar is a new Gator hard case. Unlike many "LP Style" cases, this has the correct support beneath the guitar's shoulders, so the delicate heel area is correctly supported. The black Tolex exterior covering creates a moisture-resistant, rugged home for your prized guitar and the ergonomic handle offers a comfortable grip, perfectly balancing the weight of your instrument. Inside, a thick plush lining keeps your guitar cushioned against impact and includes a spacious interior accessory compartment to organize your favorite guitar accessories while providing additional neck support. A quartet of chrome plated lockable latches secure the case and keep prying eyes at bay.
This guitar needed no refurbishing and is 100% free of any player's wear. It has no dings or cosmetic blemishes and is discounted because the QC Crew at Epi marked it as a "2nd" due to the faintest of handling marks. They are invisible to the camera and cannot be seen by the naked eye from 2 feet away! Gloss black is the most unforgiving of finishes and you will put more marks on this guitar in your first gig together than it has now!
About Our Setup:
This guitar played "well enough to sell" when it arrived here at LightSpeed Music. Still, I have just given it a complete "post factory" setup. First, the truss rod was checked and adjusted. Then the frets were leveled crowned and polished. These first two steps allowed me to lower the bridge and nut, and yet, still keep it completely buzz free. The fretboard was conditioned and the nut slots were lubed and polished. The electronics were tested and then given a protective application of contact cleaner and lube. Everything was snugged up and the guitar was polished. It received a fresh set of S.I.T. Power Wound strings gauged .010" to .046" and then the intonation was set. Now, this guitar plays very well and will please even the most demanding professional.
