One of the hottest electric guitar launches of the past year or so has undoubtedly been Adam Jones' Gibson Les Paul Custom, and while an Epiphone model will eventually arrive, there are great Black Friday guitar deals to be had on Silverburst Les Paul Customs right this very second.

If you're a Tool fan and can't hold on for that Adam Jones Epiphone, this Les Paul Custom has the all-important Silverburst finish, and an almighty $100 chopped off its asking price. The PAF-voiced ProBucker pickups, Grover tuners and classy bound body are just the icing on the cake.
Part of Epiphone's Inspired by Gibson collection, this Les Paul Custom's Silverburst finish is topped off by a fully bound body, neck and headstock, completing the high-class visual vibe.
The classic mahogany body and neck pairing is present and correct, complete with an ebony fingerboard and SlimTaper neck profile – if you're looking for sustain, you certainly won't have to, ahem, Pushit.
Tone-wise, Epiphone's ProBucker 2 and ProBucker 3 humbucking pickups are onboard, promising lower-output PAF-style tones via Alnico II magnets. Of course, if you're a die-hard Adam Jones fan, all it takes is a quick bridge pickup swap for a Seymour Duncan Distortion to team Tool tones with Adam Jones looks.
Elsewhere, Grover's ever-reliable Rotomatic tuners are onboard, while a LockTone ABR bridge and stopbar tailpiece keep those drop-D riffs in tune.
