The Epiphone Adam Jones Silverburst Les Paul Custom has been released early by some dealers and new owners are posting pictures of the guitar all over the web. This model is apparently not due until 6 December 2022.
They are now live on the Epiphone site with all the details.
Epiphone Adam Jones Silverburst Les Paul Custom
Epiphone’s new Adam Jones Silverburst Les Paul Custom signature model has been released a bit early by some Epiphone dealers and there are now photos and comments all over the internet about the guitar.
Manufacturers generally aren’t pleased when shops sell stock ahead of their releases and so this may annoy Epiphone. The brand is part of the Gibson family and so someone will be getting an earful this weekend.
The Tool guitarist already has had many releases under the Gibson brand of his famous Silverburst guitar, but this Epiphone version is a bit cheaper. These new ones are made in China where labour is a lot cheaper than in America.
What is also very interesting, is that there are supposedly special limited runs with various graphics coming for this model. These include 8 versions of this guitar.
Veil of Bees
Supposedly, the first batch of Adam Jones Epiphone Silverbursts are coming up for pre-order and there will be 8 iterations, 7 of which will have a “cool ” artwork graphic on the back called the ‘Custom Art Collection’ and there will be 800 of each graphic selling worldwide.
The Mark Rydon Veil of Bees is the official name for the model below.
The MSRP appears to be £1149 in the UK for the standard edition including an Epiphone Chainsaw case. Though, I guess we will have to wait for the official information to be announced on the Epiphone website from 6 December 2022 onwards.
Custom Art Collection Price?
The Custom Art Collection version appears to retail for $1299.00 in the USA. Let me know in the comments section below if you have managed to order yourself one yet.
