Epiphone Les Paul Custom Black Beauty · Electric Guitar
He’d spend every weekend at the empty factory halls of Epiphone in order to work on the realisation of his concept of the ideal guitar. Around in 1941 Les Paul built “The Log” which was his first prototype of an electric solid body guitar. He used a block of maple wood which he fitted with a bridge, pickups, tailpiece and a normal Gibson guitar neck. He then cut along one his Epiphone guitars and glued both halves of the body to the back and front of the block and finished was his first solidbody electric guitar.
Incorporating extraordinary features such as two Humbucker Pickups, gold hardware, high-gloss finish, split diamond headstock, block inlays, and bound top, back, neck and headstock, the Les Paul Custom undoubtedly is a “Queen” among the guitars. It was launched in 1954 as the top model in the Les Paul family and fans quickly nicknamed it “ Black Beauty” or “Fretless Wonder”.
