EPIPHONE Releases A (Mostly) Artwork-Less Adam Jones 1979 Silverburst Les Paul Custom

After months and months of Epiphone releasing Adam Jones Silverburst Les Paul Customs with artwork adorning the back of the body, we’ve finally just got a plain old Jones Les Paul with a boring back.


The Epiphone Adam Jones 1979 Les Paul – named by Jones himself as “one of my top favorite guitars of all time” – has a three-piece Maple neck with a custom Adam Jones profile, an Ebony fretboard, and a Mahogany body with a Maple cap. The guitar sports the infinitely Jones-styled Antique Silverburst finish and comes with an Epiphone LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and tailpiece.

One notable difference from the Jones Custom Art series is the reverse-mounted Gibson Custombucker in the neck and a Seymour Duncan Distortion in the bridge, instead of a Seymour Duncan DDJ in the bridge.

Interestingly, the Epiphone Adam Jones 1979 Les Paul also has a Gibson “open book” headstock profile with custom artwork on the headstock’s rear that was designed by Joyce Su and Adam Jones, and even comes with a replica two-inch convex mirror included in the Deluxe Protector Series hardshell case. Because listen man, there was gonna be artwork somewhere on this thing.

Get it here for $1,499.
