Tommy Thayer has been an Epiphone Signature Artist since 2014 and both his “White Lightning” Les Paul and Explorer were an instant success with fans and critics alike.
The new Tommy Thayer Electric Blue Les Paul features a classic Les Paul profile made from Mahogany with a Maple cap and finished in Electric Blue--from custom paint designer John Douglas--with Les Paul Custom style white and black binding on the top.
The Mahogany neck has a transitional neck profile with an Indian Laurel fingerboard and standard Les Paul trapezoid inlays. The neck has a 24.75” scale, a 12” radius, 22 medium frets, and a 1.69” Graph Tech™ nut.
The truss rod cover has a metal “bell” shape engraved with Tommy’s name and the back of the “dovewing” headstock features a “SpaceMan” logo and a reproduction of Tommy’s signature in silver.
For his Electric Blue Les Paul, Tommy chooses Seymour Duncan JB™ Humbuckers, the original archetype hot-rod humbucker and one of Duncan’s earliest and most revered designs. The neck pickup features a covered JB™ Humbucker while the bridge pickup features an open-coil JB™ Humbucker with blue bobbins. Volume and Tone Controls come with custom Blue Top Hat knobs with metal pointers.
For his signature Les Paul, Tommy chose the classic Lock Tone™ ABR bridge and Stop Bartail piece along with Grover™ Rotomatic tuners with an 18:1 tuning ratio for fast and reliable tuning and intonation. The Outfit comes with an Epiphone Electric Blue hardshell case and a Certificate of Authenticity.
