Epiphone just announced an Adam Jones (TOOL) 1979 Les Paul Custom Silverburst


Epiphone has become more than just Gibson’s more “affordable” line of guitars over the years. The company has actually been making some fantastic guitars that are just as good, and sometimes arguably better. One of my favorites is the Epiphone Les Paul Prophecy, but I digress. The new Epiphone Adam Jones (TOOL) 1979 Les Paul Custom Silverburst is also pretty amazing looking.
