Epiphone Inspired by 1955 Les Paul Custom P-90 Electric GuitarEpiphone
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.
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.
Condition: When this guitar came in from the factory, the only issue found by the authorized refurbisher was a few finish imperfections on the face of the headstock and back of the body (see photos). No repairs or modifications were made to the guitar - they simply gave it a set-up and left it alone. When we received the guitar, we set the intonation and got it perfect. Action at the 12th fret is currently set to 6/64" (bass side) / 5/64" (treble side). Aside from the minor cosmetic flaws, guitar is mint and still has the factory plastic on the pickguard and "Gibson pickups" sticker over the volume knob. Back of the headstock is stamped "2nd" and original serial # has been replaced with a new one.
