Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Inspired by "1955" Les Paul Custom™ Outfit
Featuring Gibson USA Soapbar P-90 pickups and a vintage style hard case

Epiphone presents the new Ltd. Ed. Inspired by "1955" Les Paul Custom™ Outfit, a historic reissue of one of the most popular Les Pauls ever made. Featuring Gibson USA Soapbar P-90 pickups, gold hardware, an Ebony fretboard, and a vintage style hard case.

Epiphone and Mr. Les Paul

Epiphone’s long friendship with Mr. Les Paul dates back to the 1940s when Les, working after-hours at the original Epiphone factory in Manhattan, created one of the world’s first solid body electric guitars which he nicknamed “The Log”. It wasn’t long before “The Log” evolved into the legendary Les Paul. Throughout his life, Les continued to work closely with Epiphone reviewing new products and offering suggestions. “They are damn fine instruments, I swear by them!” said Les.

The Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Inspired by "1955" Les Paul Custom™ Outfit is an historic reissue of the “tuxedo” Les Paul that Les designed to be the most beautiful electric guitar ever made with a striking Ebony finish with gold hardware that would not only look great with a “tux” but would also convince skeptics that the new—and controversial--“solid body” electric guitar was a refined and classy instrument.
