The above guitar is the one I got in '96. Epiphone Les Paul Custom "Black Beauty". Mine, however has a third pickup. The guitar sounds great. It has a very deep, mellow sound that can be appreciated by Blues and Classical listeners. Now if I can learn to play it well, I'll feel a lot better about paying what I did for it. Here are some links to music that I like. The epiphone page is linked to the guitar.
