Epiphone Les Paul Black Beauty 3 Electric Guitar, Ebony

Epiphone Les Paul Black Beauty 3 Electric Guitar, Ebony

Product code: epienbbebgh1

The Les Paul Custom made its debut in 1954 after the initial success of the Les Paul Goldtop. Les Paul thought his namesake guitar needed a new look and suggested a classy ebony finish would go well with a tuxedo on stage. But Les also knew that the 'Les Paul' guitar had to keep up with the competition, so this instrument also got an additional pickup, making the Les Paul 'Black Beauty' one of the most striking guitars of its time.

    Great Tonewoods
    While all Les Pauls share common design features, the Les Paul Custom differed from the Les Paul Standard with its solid mahogany body without a maple cap. Epiphone's Black Beauty 3 follows that tradition by using a solid, carved mahogany body which gives the guitar a slightly mellow tone. Like the original, the Epiphone Les Paul Custom Black Beauty 3 is fitted with a solid mahogany neck, hand-fitted with a glued-in joint for optimum neck-to-body contact which allows the body and neck to resonate like a single piece of wood. The neck features a very comfortable and fast SlimTaper™ 'D' profile, a 24.75 inch scale, and a 1.68 inch nut. The result is a tribute to Les' timeless design with the sound and feel that you can only get from a real Les Paul.

    Classic Electronics
    At the heart of the Les Paul Black Beauty 3 are three Epiphone Alnico Classic™ humbucker pickups. These pickups, patterned after Gibson USA '57 Classics, combine Alnico-V magnets with enamel wire to give you a tone that is both warm and subtle with a full and even response that doesn't hold back when you need that classic humbucker crunch!

    Loaded with premium add-ons!
    Other premium features include Epiphone's LockTone™ Tune-o-matic/Stopbar combination bridge for increased sustain and easy string changes, 16:1 ratio Grover® machine heads, a 7-layer bound body, a 5-layer bound headstock and a comfortable single-layer bound rosewood fingerboard.
