The Les Paul Custom made its debut in 1954 after the initial success of the Les Paul Goldtop. Les requested a Les Paul with a custom color finish in solid black and solid white with gold hardware that would blend well with a tuxedo. The result was the Les Paul Custom, or the “tuxedo” Les Paul, as it became known among fans. Now Epiphone introduces the Les Paul Custom Pro in new sparkly TV Silver finish but it is still “dressed to kill”.

The Les Paul Custom became one of the most recognized guitars in the world and Les himself used his Les Paul Custom in concert, on his weekly television show with wife Mary Ford and on his album covers.
