Ltd. Ed. Les Paul Custom PRO KOA

Les Paul Power With a KOA Top

The Ltd. Ed. Les Paul Custom PRO KOA features a warm, KOA top with a Natural finish along with a traditional solid Mahogany body. Both the body (top and back) and the traditional "Custom" headstock have 5-layer black and white binding. The bound solid Mahogany 24.75" scale neck is hand-fitted and glued-in for optimum neck-to-body contact so the Les Paul Custom PRO KOA resonates as a single piece of wood. The Rosewood fingerboard has pearloid block inlays, a 12" radius, a 1.68" Graphtech® nut, and 22 medium-jumbo frets.

ProBucker™ Power With Coil-Splitting

The Les Paul Custom PRO KOA is powered by Epiphone's critically acclaimed ProBucker™ pickups, a 4-wire design with coil-splitting inspired by Gibson's legendary BurstBuckers™. Epiphone ProBucker™ pickups recreate the sound of the original hand-wound "PAF style" humbuckers designed by Seth Lover in the late 1950s at Gibson's factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Epiphone ProBuckers™ feature all the same ingredients as original "PAF style" and BurstBucker™ pickups including Alnico II magnets, Elektrisola magnet wire, 18% nickel silver unit bases and covers, and pole screws, slugs and bobbins manufactured to Gibson's original specifications. Both pickups feature coil-splitting via a push/pull control at each pickup's volume knob, which gives the Les Paul Custom PRO KOA the ability to be any guitar you can imagine. All volume and tone controls feature full-size 500K potentiometers matched with Epiphone's rugged, all-metal, 3-way toggle pickup selector switch for long-lasting performance.

Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Wildkat KOA

Featuring a Bigsby® B70 Vibrato

The Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Wildkat KOA features a solid KOA top, a legendary Bigsby® B70 Vibrato, and a Mahogany body in a beautiful Natural finish that's computer-routed to create a perfectly tuned acoustic guitar-like body but with a "center block" just like the Sheraton II PRO and ES-335. The Mahogany neck has dot inlays, a 24.75" scale, and a 1960s style SlimTaper™ profile that's easy on the hands for long hours of performing and rehearsing. The classic Rosewood fingerboard has a 12" radius and a standard 1.69" nut. The Wildkat's headstock features Epiphone's early 60's "bullet" badge, seen on rare models from the early 60s including the very first Casino in 1961. Grover® Rotomatic™ machine heads with an 18:1 ratio make for fast and accurate tuning. An optional hard case is available.

P-90 Pickups, King of the Single Coils

The Ltd. Ed. Wildkat KOA features a P-90R Dogear Classic in the rhythm position and a slightly hotter P-90T Dogear Classic in the lead position. For generations, artists like The Beatles, Gary Clark Jr., and Radiohead have revered P-90 pickups for their wide tonal range. The Wildkat KOA's P-90R Dogear Classics are powered by a master volume control, individual volume controls, and a master tone control with 500K potentiometers and black "Top Hat" knobs.
