“This is a stunning guitar, it’s beautiful and it sounds great to play,” says Alex Lifeson. "You have got to plug it in and play it, it sounds great. You can create a lot of different tones and sounds, and a player at any level can make use of this guitar. Playing guitar takes you to that place in your heart and your soul to express yourself creatively and to just have fun, it is just fun to play, it always has been and always will be.”
Created through extensive work with Alex Lifeson and Gibson, Epiphone’s Les Paul Custom Axcess in Ruby redefines the boundaries of the classic Les Paul in an accessible, versatile package. This guitar carries all of the traditional tones that have made the Les Paul legendary, along with unprecedented levels of sonic and performance agility.
