The Les Paul Custom is patterned after Frampton's "Phenix" model.
Nashville, TN (September 5, 2018) -- Epiphone proudly announces the Ltd. Ed. Peter Frampton Les Paul Custom PRO and the Ltd. Ed. Peter Frampton "1964" Texan acoustic/electric, incredibly accurate recreations of two of the most legendary guitars in rock ‘n’ roll, overseen by GRAMMY winner Peter Frampton and designed by Epiphone’s luthiers in Nashville. Both the Ltd. Ed. Peter Frampton Les Paul Custom PRO and the Ltd. Ed. “1964” Texan are also available as Premium Outfits featuring hand-signed Certificates of Authenticity and a Premium Hard Case.
“I’m honored,” said Frampton. “I played the prototype Ltd. Ed. Texan on a British TV show and it sounded incredible. And we’ve been working together for quite some time on getting this Ltd. Ed. Les Paul Custom PRO as close as possible to my original “Phenix” Les Paul, which is on the front cover of Frampton Comes Alive. It’s just a really well made true representation and I’m thrilled.”
The Ltd. Ed. Peter Frampton Les Paul Custom PRO Premium Outfit is limited to only 200 guitars worldwide and includes a Hand-Signed Certificate of Authenticity and a Premium Hard Case. A guitar-only version of the Ltd. Ed. Peter Frampton Les Paul Custom PRO is also available with the same specifications and is limited to 900 guitars worldwide.
Both Les Pauls feature ProBucker and CeramicPRO Open-Coil Humbuckers, an Ebony fretboard, and gold Grover Rotomatic machine heads. The Les Pauls are based on Frampton’s legendary 1954 Les Paul—now known as the “Phenix”-- that helped power his rise to fame in the 1970s before it was presumed lost in a plane crash in Venezuela in 1980 and then rediscovered in 2012.
The Ltd. Ed. Peter Frampton "1964" Texan Premium Outfit is limited to 100 guitars worldwide and includes a Hand-Signed Certificate of Authenticity and Premium Hard Case as well as the same L. R. Baggs DS-ELE 2- pickup system Frampton uses on stage. A cd copy of Frampton’s critically acclaimed album Acoustic Classics will also be included with the Premium Outfit. A guitar-only version of the Ltd. Ed. Peter Frampton "1964" Texan features the L. R. Baggs EAS-VTC pickup system and is limited to 500 guitars worldwide.
Both Peter Frampton Texans feature a Solid Spruce top, Schaller M6 machine heads, and the same rare Vintageburst finish found on Frampton’s original. “My Texan was made 3 month's apart from Paul McCartney's,” said Frampton. “His was a blonde one and mine is a sunburst. He wrote "Yesterday" on his and I wrote "Baby I Love Your Way" on mine!”

Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters are designed to offer a fat midrange and a smooth top end.
Billy Corgan was looking for something for heavier Smashing Pumpkins songs, so Joe Naylor designed the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One pickup. Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters have a fat midrange and a smooth top end. This pickup combines the drive and sustain of a humbucker with the percussive attack and string clarity of a P90. Get beefy P90 tone plus amp-pummeling output with the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One.
Patented Railhammer Pickups take passive guitar pickups to a new level with rails under the wound strings lead to tighter lows, and poles under the plain strings offer fatter heights. With increased clarity, the passive pickup’s tone is never sterile.
