Since Gibson launched the Custom Shop Adam Jones 1979 Les Paul Custom in 2020, many players have sought a more affordable version. Understandable, given the guitar was originally available in two specifications: unrelic'd VOS and Aged & Signed, priced at $5,999 and $9,999, respectively.

Back in May last year, the Tool guitarist sent pulses racing when he shared a video teasing an Epiphone version of the guitar on Instagram, though information has since been limited and the status of such a model remains shrouded in mystery.
