The new Jared James Nichols "Gold Glory" Les Paul Custom, is a limited edition take on the Black-finished "Old Glory" signature model by the rising star who is originally from Les Paul's hometown. The Jared James Nichols "Gold Glory" features a classic 1955 style Les Paul Custom body with a distinctive Double Gold Aged finish, a single Seymour Duncan P-90 Dogear pickup, an ebony fingerboard with traditional block inlays, Grover Rotomatic tuners, and an EpiLite case.


"'Gold Glory' is an ICON of a guitar," says Jared James Nichols. "Between the beauty of the tone, and glitter of the gold, it is breathtaking and bold. It's simplistic, and powerful, a complete classic, yet rooted in today. I am honored to continue my 'Glory Days' with this incredible new signature model. I cannot wait to get this guitar out into the world and into the hands of players looking to find their own unique voice. Simply put, 'Gold Glory' inspires me to play, create, and perform at my very best." "2021 is going to be a big year for Jared James Nichols," says Elizabeth Heidt, Vice President of Cultural Influence at Gibson Brands. "We are so inspired by Jared's artistry and can't wait to hear and support his new album. Jared James Nichols embodies everything that we are about at Epiphone and we are proud to have him as part of our family, and to bring the next evolution of Jared's guitar to his fans."

A deep dive into faux amps, futuristic setups, and how to use modern technology’s powers for good.

The jump between analog and digital gear has never been more manageable. It no longer takes a rack full of outboard gear with a six-figure price tag to help realize not only the tone you have in your head, but the expansive workflows that started to pop up in the early ’80s. We’re now about a decade into the modern era of digital modelers and profilers and it seems like the technology has finally come into its own. “This is really the first time in a while where you can have bar bands playing the exactsame gear as stadium acts,” says Cooper Carter, a Fractal Audio Systems production consultant who has done sound design and rig building for Neal Schon, James Valentine, John Petrucci, and others.
