Epiphone Exclusive Run Les Paul Custom Lite Guitar Ebony with Gold Hardware Features
The ‘Tuxedo’ Les Paul:
The Limited Edition Les Paul Custom Lite has the same look and feel of the original “tuxedo” LP Custom designed by Mr. Les Paul in the 1950s but with a chambered Mahogany body that makes the LP Custom Lite around three pounds lighter than a typical Les Paul without sacrificing the Custom’s legendary tone. The Les Paul Custom Lite is available in Ebony or Alpine White and has the same white and black binding as vintage models on the body top and back, fingerboard, and headstock. The Mahogany neck has a SlimTaper ‘D’ Profile with the LP Custom’s traditional Ebony fingerboard with Pearloid “Block” inlays along with a 24.75” scale length and a 12” radius.
Alnico Classic Humbuckers:
The Limited Edition Les Paul Custom Lite is powered by two Alnico Classic humbuckers with Alnico-V magnets, which provide a slightly higher output than vintage pickups and have enhanced mids and highs. The neck position has an Epiphone Alnico Classic and the bridge position has a slightly “hotter” Epiphone Alnico Classic Plus. Each pickup has a Volume and Tone control with vintage-styled Black "Speed" knobs plus Epiphone’s all-metal 3-way pickup selector switch.
The Les Paul Custom Lite comes with Epiphone’s critically acclaimed hardware including a gold non-rotating, Heavy Duty Output Jack, the classic LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece combo for superior intonation, and gold Grover machine heads with an 18:1 tuning ratio. An optional hard case is available at Authorized Epiphone Dealers.
