The Epiphone Les Paul Black Beauty has a truly elegant and classic look. It features 3 humbucker pickups with gold pickup covers. The Bridge pickup is an Alnico Hot Humbucker while the middle and neck pickups are Alnico Classic HBs, giving the Epiphone Black Beauty LP a wide tonal range. The three humbucker pickups are made to Epiphones specs and are double dipped in wax to reduce microphonic feedback. They have a rich creamy tone with plenty of output.
You're in control
The controls are in a standard configuration with two tone controls and two volume controls. The 3-way pickup selector selects between each pickup: Bridge, Middle, and Neck. The hardware is gold; giving the guitar a very elegant look. The 24.75" scale length neck is made of Mahogany with 22 frets. The fingerboard is rosewood with block inlays. The tuners are gold as well as the stopbar tailpiece and tune-o-matic bridge.
A build to behold
The body of the Epiphone Black Beauty is made of Mahogany and Alder with a black catalyzed finish. The neck is set into the body for a classic Les Paul design (as opposed to bolt-on or neck-through-body build). This gives the guitar great sustain and tone. The smooth and fast neck is a slim-taper, very similar to that of the gibson models. To increase the elegant look of the guitar the multi-binding is on the top and back of the body as well as on the fretboard and headstock. All these premium features, mixed with the gorgeous black beauty finish and gold hardware, make the Epiphone Black Beauty Les Paul a real work of art.
More pickup power
The Epiphone Les Paul Black Beauty 3 has 3 Alnico Classic Humbucking pickups whereas the Black Beauty Les Paul Custom version only has 2 pickups. This is an amazing guitar at an equally impressive price.
