By means of its koa-topped mahogany body, the Epiphone Les Paul Custom Koa delivers a massive helping of warmth and richness. The Koa’s ProBucker humbucking pickups share their lineage with Seth Lover’s iconic PAF (Patent Applied For) humbuckers, which defined the golden age of rock ’n’ roll and are a perennial favorite of six-string slingers. Enjoy effortless playability by virtue of this guitar’s mahogany SlimTaper neck with its ebony fingerboard and Graph Tech nut. And, thanks to gold hardware, premium Grover tuners, and a LockTone Tune-o-matic/stopbar system, the Les Paul Custom Koa exudes a high-end attitude.
A tonewood combination that delivers beautiful warmth and resonance
The Epiphone Les Paul Custom Koa takes the tried-and-true tone you’ve come to expect from a Les Paul and ups the resonance factor dramatically. When we gave this guitar a test drive, we found that the mahogany body yields a warm, full-bodied sound that’s further enhanced by its koa top, which also adds a touch of brightness to its overall sonic signature. You can surely count on the Epiphone Les Paul Custom Koa to deliver an immensely rich tone with the perfect amount of high-end bite.
Epiphone’s acclaimed ProBucker pickups
The key ingredient to the Les Paul’s early success was the PAF humbucking pickup. The first of its kind to hit the mainstream, the Patent Applied For humbuckers defined the sound of a generation with their fat tone and clear response. With the price of vintage PAFs skyrocketing, Epiphone set out to create their own PAF-style pickup. Thus, the ProBucker humbucking pickup was born. Inspired by the original PAF sound, these pickups pump out full, overwound tones with incredible clarity. When you plug in, you’ll instantly recognize the signature Les Paul punch.
Classy looks that make people stare
Trust us, the classy appointments of the Epiphone Les Paul Custom Koa will make everyone stare. Well, at least the guitar players. Adorned with shiny gold hardware, this Les Paul is ready for the swankiest of gigs. A gorgeous, figured koa top provides a distinct appearance that’s impossible to ignore. You’ll also find multilayered binding on every outside inch, from body to neck to headstock.
