    Scored this bad boy off of CL. 2006 model. Epiphone's last year of production at the Samick factory in Korea (or so I'm told) before moving operations to China. Beautiful Vintage Sunburst that's no longer in production. Not sure exactly what the pickups are (guessing Epi). I believe they didn't start installing the "ProBuckers" until the guitar model had "Les Paul Custom PRO" in the name. Sounds good either way. Love the feel and weight of these guitars without having to shell out a few grand for a proper Gibson. Two thumbs up! :beer

    Far out! Great looking axe.:) I don't think Probuckers would have been in production yet, so it's probable this Custom has the old design (Pre-2011) Alnico Classics. I like the updated ones, not sure how the old ones are. But if you dig it, play away!:)
