Product Description

Played on some of Peter’s greatest hits, his distinct Les Paul is one of the most heard guitars ever made! Epiphone now presents the incredible Limited Edition Peter Frampton Les Paul Custom PRO, a recreation of one of the most legendary guitars in rock ‘n’ roll overseen by Peter Frampton and designed by Epiphone’s luthiers in Nashville, TN. Featuring a classic Les Paul with a weight-relieved Mahogany Body and Hard Maple Cap, Epiphone ProBucker and CeramicPRO Open-Coil Humbuckers, Grover Rotomatic machine heads, and an Ebony fretboard. Available for a limited time with only 900 guitars being built!

The Les Paul Heard ‘Round the World’
Peter Frampton was already admired as a guitarist for his work in Humble Pie and for his studio sessions when he became a worldwide superstar in 1976 with the release of his best-selling classic, Frampton Comes Alive. As Frampton’s star rose, so did the legend of his guitar, a unique 1954 Les Paul that was customized as a one-of-a-kind Les Paul Custom with three humbuckers.

Frampton’s prized Les Paul was presented as gift from friend Marc Mariana in 1970 after a Humble Pie concert at the Fillmore West in San Francisco. “Marc said, I have a Les Paul that I just had refinished by Gibson. I just got it back, would you like to try it tomorrow? It was very light for a Les Paul. I tried it that night and I don’t think my feet touched the ground the whole night. It was one of those spectacular moments where I realized this guitar is just incredible. Afterwards I gave it back to him and I said, do you think you’d ever think about selling it? He said, No, I’m going to give it to you.”

From that moment on, Frampton’s Les Paul was his go-to instrument on stage and in the studio until 1980, when the guitar was thought destroyed in a plane crash in Caracas, Venezuela carrying instruments and other tour cargo. But in 2011 in a surprise and emotional reunion, Frampton’s long lost Les Paul was returned to him by Donald Valentina, a Curacao customs agent and amateur guitar player who discovered that the instrument had survived the crash and arranged for it to be returned to Frampton. Gibson’s world famous repair shop in Nashville painstakingly repaired Frampton’s Les Paul and returned it to him, scars and all. Now Epiphone’s luthiers, with the help of Frampton, have recreated his trademark Les Paul as it looked when it was given to him at the Fillmore West in 1970!

Weight Relieved Mahogany Body
The Limited Edition Peter Frampton Les Paul Custom PRO features a 50s Les Paul profile with a Hard Maple Cap and a weight relieved Mahogany body with a beautiful Ebony gloss finish. The Mahogany neck has single-ply white binding and a Custom ‘Phenix’ profile designed with Frampton and is glued to the body with a traditional Long Neck Tenon.

The Ebony fretboard has Pearloid ‘Blocks’ inlays, a 24.75 inch scale, 22 medium jumbo frets, and a 12 inch radius. The two-way adjustable truss rod has a classic ‘bell’ cover and the traditional Epiphone headstock has a replica of Peter Frampton’s signature in gold on the back. The body has traditional Les Paul Custom style 7-ply White and Black binding on the body top and 5-ply white and black binding on the body back and headstock along with a ‘2018’ Edition logo.

Show Me the Tone!
Frampton’s original Les Paul was customized with three open-coil humbuckers and his new Limited Edition Les Paul Custom PRO recreates the look and sound of Frampton’s vintage original with Epiphone ProBucker pickups in the neck and bridge positions and a CeramicPRO pickup in the middle position. The critically acclaimed ProBucker series accurately recreates Epiphone and Gibson’s most famous pickups with historically accurate wire, winding techniques, bobbins--and most importantly--Alnico and Ceramic magnets.

Product Review

I was hesitant spending this much on an Epi, but I am extremely pleased with this. Neck was straight right out of the box and the action only needed a slight adjustment. I was VERY surprised. I play through a reissue JTM45/MXcab and a 1973 SLP 100W/1960TVcab and man what a sound! I think this is a great price on a very cool guitar.

You can change the Graphtech nut to an original of the '54 to a bone nut easily.

Product Review

I love this guitar but I am a traditionalist. I'm not a fan of Graphtech nuts but I fell on to a bone nut that I already had for acoustic guitars. Perfect specs. I never used them because my Martins have 1 3/4" nuts. The nut I purchased from Amazon a couple of years ago fits perfectly. I just had to file the nut at the low E with a .042 nut file and that was it. They are Blistine Ox bone acoustic nuts. 2 nuts and saddles for $8. 43mm L x 6mm W x 8.5mm H. Also check the fret leveling of the Frampton. It was minor and off in a few areas. I expected that. I do my own fret leveling so no big deal.

One Flawless and Great Guitar

Product Review

Have had for a few months now and I still cannot find one thing wrong with it. Once it arrived I scoured it for manufacturing flaws and could not find one thing wrong with it. It is well built and beautifully put together. It looks so good I want to hang it on the wall instead of playing music with it. It was setup right and screamed beautifully right out of the box. The reason I purchased it was because of the three pickups and the many different tones and style of music sounds it can emit. With the right strings it can perform well in any genre. One other thing that is awesome about it is it’s weight. It is very lightweight and easy on the shoulders as it weighs less than any guitar I have ever owned. There is one thing that might concern someone. If you are a digger when you pick, you might have to learn an easier touch as the pickups are very close to the strings and if you go deep, you might hit them. Other than that, it’s an awesome instrument. You can’t go wrong with it.

I Absolutely Love This Guitar!

Product Review

This guitar is smooth! I’ve always wanted a Les Paul but couldn’t shell out $$$$ for a Gibson. Now I’m glad I couldn’t. I can’t imagine a nicer guitar. The tones are gorgeous with no effects at all. Add some distortion and this baby screams! I’ve been a Peter Frampton fan since I was a kid. I’m so happy to have this guitar!

Product Review

This was purchased as a supposedly minor cosmetically damaged guitar,I was hard pressed to find the damage if any on it.It Plays,Sounds great for substantially far less than the original price.A great addition to the arsenal for far less than what a similar Gibson would cost.
