Your are viewing a 2006 Ebony Epiphone Les Paul Custom. It is in very nice shape. The paint is basically like new. The gold hardware has some where, but not much at all. I restrung it with GHS Boomer .010, which are my favorites for Les Paul's. It comes with a brand new gig bag.
This thing sounds really good. The Customs are pretty decent pieces. I upgraded the Caps (capacitors) from the little chip to a Vitamin Q .022 for rhythm and a .018 for treble to give it more edge. Upgrading the caps opened up the sound and gives what is typically called 'the traditional buttery Les Paul sound'. This may seem like a small change, but definitely a step up in sound quality. Contrary to what some sources say, the cap changes the sound even when the tone control is not in use. I tried A/B testing with one end soldered and the other just held in place and the cap does give a warmer sound with more depth. This is a major bang for the buck upgrade.
I have tons of guitars (many more coming to Ebay) and this change makes this Epi sound better then a $3-400 guitar should. I am on disability and plan on spend several hours per week upgrading Epiphone guitars and reselling them here. I manly have made in Korea models, but will also look at the brand new ones. I have read and believe that Epiphone has redesigned their pickups recently and made a huge improvement. Many of the Epi's made this decade have pretty week electronics. What I will do is change what
