With its koa-topped mahogany body, the Epiphone Les Paul Custom Koa delivers a massive helping of warmth and richness.

A tonewood combination that delivers beautiful warmth and resonance
The Epiphone Les Paul Custom Koa takes the tried-and-true tone you’ve come to expect from a Les Paul and ups the resonance factor dramatically. The mahogany body yields a warm, full-bodied sound that’s further enhanced by its koa top, which also adds a touch of brightness to its overall sonic signature. You can surely count on the Epiphone Les Paul Custom Koa to deliver an immensely rich tone with the perfect amount of high-end bite.
Epiphone’s acclaimed ProBucker pickups
The key ingredient to the Les Paul’s early success was the PAF humbucking pickup. As the first of its kind to hit the mainstream, they defined the sound of a generation with their fat tone and clear response. With the price of vintage PAFs skyrocketing, Epiphone set out to create their own PAF-style pickup. Thus, the ProBucker humbucking pickup was born. Inspired by the original PAF sound, these pickups pump out full, overwound tones with incredible clarity. When you plug in, you’ll instantly recognize the signature Les Paul punch.
