The Roots of the Les Paul begin at Epiphone: Les Paul in the House of Stathopoulo.

Throughout 2015, Epiphone proudly celebrates the 100th birthday of Les Paul, the Wizard of Waukesha, the Thomas Edison of rock n' roll, and a life long fan and friend of the Epiphone and Gibson families. Les was a regular visitor to Epi Stathopoulo's factory in Manhattan where Les made the first prototypes of the Les Paul guitar, The Log. "I knew Epi Stathopoulo and the Epiphone people very well and loved their instruments," Les recalled in Les Paul, In His Own Words, “Working on Sundays, I took a length of 4x4 Pine, put an Epiphone neck on it, wound a couple of homemade pickups, and mounted them on the wood. Then I added a bridge and Vibrola tailpiece, strung it up, and I had The Log. I was looking for volume, tone, and sustain that could be controlled, still chasing the idea that started with stretching a guitar string over a section of railroad rail.”

Les continued to be an Epiphone fan for the rest of his life and the beautiful new Ltd. Ed. Les Paul Custom 100th Anniversary Outfit is a suitable and dazzling tribute to the most popular rock & roll guitar in the world and its equally revered inventor.

For over 50 years, Les Paul encouraged and cheered on Epiphone to keep Les Pauls on the cutting edge of electric guitars.

“I tell you they are damn fine instruments!” Les said of Epiphone Les Pauls. “A kid can get an Epiphone and have something worth something, not a hunk-of-junk like the other brands. He can learn well on one and have it and play it the rest of his life. Just that they need a good guitar like an Epiphone so they won't get discouraged…so they will practice and work hard and enjoy their music.”

And remember like all Epiphones, the new Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Les Paul Custom 100th Anniversary Outfit comes with Epiphone’s time honored Limited Lifetime Warranty and world-famous 24/7/365 Gibson Customer Service.
