Up for sale, a 2011 Epiphone Custom Shop Limited Edition Les Paul Royale in near mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. Featuring a Pearl White gloss finish and gold sparkle binding, the Les Paul Royale is visually distinct with solid mahogany body and neck construction and a rosewood fingerboard. Loaded with Epiphone's Alnico Classic humbuckers, this Les Paul delivers plenty of growl, warmth, and treble-centric cut. The guitar weighs 8lbs 5oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.
The mahogany neck has a chunky C-shaped profile carve with generous shoulder and ideal heft, measuring .855" deep at the 1st fret and .999 at the 12th. The bound rosewood fretboard is a dark cut of this particular tonewood with medium jumbo frets which retain their full factory height and well-rounded crowns, showing just a touch of wear on the crowns of frets 1-4. The guitar plays cleanly up the 24 3/4" scale with a straight neck and responsive, optimally adjusted truss rod. The nut measures 1 11/16" in width, and the headstock has gold genuine Grover Rotomatic tuning machines.
The electronics function as intended, the hardware has bright gold plating, and the plastic parts are near mint including the thick one-ply transparent gold lucite pickguard. The custom color Pearl White gloss finish is framed by gold sparkle binding, and cosmetic wear is limited to just a few light finish scratches on the back.
The original Epiphone padded gigbag is included.
