Epiphone Jared James Nichols Gold Glory Les Paul Custom - Double Gold Aged Gloss
Old-school Goldtop for a Modern Guitar Icon
The Epiphone Jared James Nichols "Gold Glory" Les Paul Custom takes the rising star's black-finished "Old Glory" signature guitar and gives it the Goldtop treatment. Like its darker-hued stablemate, the Jared James Nichols "Gold Glory" combines '50s-era Les Paul playability with hot-rodded tone. Loaded with a single Seymour Duncan P-90 pickup, plus master Volume and Tone controls, this solidbody electric represents Nichols's dream guitar. In his own words, “I’ve been playing the prototype of “Old Glory” on stage since the day I got it. Ever since Joe Perry loaned me a '50s Les Paul Custom with a single pickup, I knew I needed one of my own. This is an incredible guitar." The Jared James Nichols "Gold Glory" can be your incredible dream guitar, too. Pick it up, and you won't put it down until — in true JJN style — you wear your fingers down to threadbare nubs.
Thanks to Joe Perry
As the guitar world took note of Jared James Nichols's rise to prominence, he was approached by Epiphone for ideas on creating a signature model. The design was an easy choice for Nichols — ever since having been loaned a '50s Les Paul Custom with a single pickup by none other than Joe Perry of Aerosmith, Nichols knew he had to have one. The Jared James Nichols "Gold Glory" Les Paul Custom is based on that loaner guitar, bringing you the feel of a vintage Les Paul at an amazing value.
Loaded with a vintage-style dog ear P-90 pickup
This Epiphone Jared James Nichols "Gold Glory" Les Paul Custom is fitted with a Seymour Duncan dog ear P-90 pickup. We have many fiercely loyal P-90 fans here. These guitarists know that the P-90 offers a unique tonal palette that is distinct from — and complements — humbuckers and traditional single-coils. One of the first successful single-coil pickups, the P-90 can be heard on countless iconic recordings. With its biting treble and high output, the P-90 cleans up nicely when you roll back your guitar’s volume pot. It’s an amazingly versatile pickup with its own brand of grit — a bit brighter, leaner, and less refined than a humbucker, and almost as hot. Hit your amp hard, and the P-90 really wails. P-90 pickups elicit grind, sizzle, bark, and bite that would be impossible with humbuckers — or with other single-coils, for that matter.
Substantial '50s Rounded "C"-shaped neck
Wrap your hand around the Jared James Nichols "Gold Glory" Les Paul Custom's '50s Rounded "C" mahogany neck, and you'll be primed for blazing-fast fingerpicking, monster bends, and wicked pinch harmonics. Full enough to remain comfortable all the way up and down its slick, 12-inch-radius fingerboard and fast enough for fleet-fingered blues licks, this solidbody electric guitar's neck plays for keeps. If you're a fan of that 1950s neck feel, the Jared James Nichols "Gold Glory" is ready to conjure some black magic.
