For 150 years, Epiphone has been a leading innovator in instrument design. By leveraging its iconic past and leaning into the future, the brand has set the stage for the next era of sound for present and future generations.
This year, Epiphone is proud to announce the Adam Jones Les Paul Custom Art Collection, an unprecedented, limited-edition collection curated by Adam Jones of TOOL, which brings the artist’s love of fine art and music together with seven, iconic and unique Les Paul Custom Silverburst masterpieces featuring the artwork of five distinguished visual artists handpicked by Adam himself.
The Epiphone Adam Jones Les Paul Custom Art Collection is now available worldwide in limited quantities at authorized Epiphone dealers – including, of course, Lauda Central Europe.
The seventh and final guitar to debut in the Adam Jones Les Paul Custom Art Collection unveiled this month features Mark Ryden’s “Queen Bee” on the back of the guitar. Blending themes of pop culture with the techniques of the old masters, Mark Ryden blurs the traditional boundaries between high and low art in a new genre of “Pop Surrealism.”
An exceptional instrument for your next musical masterpiece, this Epiphone Adam Jones Les Paul Custom has a bound mahogany body with a maple cap, a three-piece bound maple neck with an Adam Jones Custom profile, and an ebony fretboard. It is equipped with a reverse-mounted Epiphone ProBucker™ Custom humbucker™ in the neck position and a Seymour Duncan® Distortion in the bridge; both are wired to CTS® potentiometers and Orange Drop® capacitors. A Marquee Back Plate with the artist’s name and the name of the artwork is also included. This Epiphone Silverburst Les Paul™ is finished in Antique Silverburst as an homage to Adam’s beloved original Silverburst 1979 Gibson® Les Paul Custom, a Protector hardshell case is also included.
