The Les Paul Heard 'Round the World Peter Frampton was already admired as a guitarist for his work in Humble Pie and for his studio sessions when he became a worldwide superstar in 1976 with the release of his best selling classic, Frampton Comes Alive. As Frampton's star rose, so did the legend of the guitar that Frampton was holding on the cover of the LP, a unique 1954 Les Paul that was customized as a one-of-a-kind Les Paul Custom with three humbuckers.

Frampton's prized Les Paul was presented as a gift from friend Marc Mariana in 1970 after a Humble Pie concert at the Fillmore West in San Francisco. "Marc said, I have a Les Paul that I just had refinished by Gibson. I just got it back, would you like to try it tomorrow? It was very light for a Les Paul. I tried it that night and I don't think my feet touched the ground the whole night. It was one of those spectacular moments where I realized this guitar is just incredible. Afterwards I gave it back to him and I said, do you think you'd ever think about selling it? He said, No, I'm going to give it to you."

From that moment on, Frampton's Les Paul was his go-to instrument on stage and in the studio until 1980, when the guitar was thought to have been destroyed in a plane crash in Caracas, Venezuela carrying instruments and other tour cargo. But in 2011 in a surprise and emotional reunion, Frampton's long lost Les Paul was returned to him by a Curacao customs agent and amateur guitar player, who discovered that the instrument had survived the crash and arranged for it to be returned to Frampton. Gibson's world famous repair shop in Nashville painstakingly repaired Frampton's Les Paul and returned it to him, scars and all. Now Epiphone's luthiers, with the help of Frampton, have recreated his trademark Les Paul as it looked when it was given to him at the Fillmore West in 1970!

Weight Relieved Mahogany Body Each Ltd. Ed. Peter Frampton Les Paul Custom PRO features a 50s Les Paul profile with a Hard Maple Cap and a weight relieved Mahogany body with a beautiful Ebony gloss finish. The Mahogany neck has single-ply white binding and a Custom "Phenix" profile designed with Frampton and is glued to the body with a traditional Long Neck Tenon. The Ebony fretboard has Pearloid "Block" inlays, a 24.75" scale, 22 medium jumbo frets, and a 12" radius. The two-way adjustable truss rod has a classic "bell" cover and the traditional Epiphone headstock has a replica of Peter Frampton's signature in gold on the back along with a "2018" Edition logo. The body has traditional Les Paul Custom style 7-ply White and Black binding on the body top and 5-ply white and black binding on the body back and headstock.

Show Me the Tone! Frampton's original Les Paul was customized with three open-coil humbuckers and each Ltd. Ed. Les Paul Custom PRO recreates the look and sound of Frampton's vintage original with Epiphone ProBucker™ pickups in the neck and bridge positions and a Ceramic PRO™ pickup in the middle position. The critically acclaimed ProBucker™ series accurately recreates Epiphone and Gibson's most famous pickups with historically accurate wire, winding techniques, bobbins--and most importantly--Alnico and Ceramic magnets. The Epiphone® All-metal 3-way Pickup Selector has a unique wiring scheme that selects between the neck or bridge pickups only, just like a regular Les Paul. The middle pickup is always "on" but has its own Volume control so it can be blended or turned off. The lead and rhythm pickups each have a master volume and tone control while the middle pickup has its own volume and tone pot. All volume and tone controls feature historically accurate Gold "Speed" Knobs.

Classic Epiphone Hardware Epiphone hardware is the best in the business and each Ltd. Ed. Peter Frampton Les Paul Custom PRO features a gold LockTone™ Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece for fast and accurate intonation along with gold Grover® Rotomatic™ machine heads with an 18:1 tuning ratio and Epiphone strap locks.
