Epiphone unveils koa-topped Les Paul Custom and Wildkat guitars

It seems Epiphone can do no wrong at the moment, and the release of these koa-topped limited-edition Les Paul Custom and Wildkat models only hammers the point home.

Available via select Epiphone dealers for a short time only, both guitars feature a natural finish that shows off the koa grain in all its glory, and pack Epiphones ProBuckers and P-90 Dogear Classics respectively. The Wildkat also boasts a Bigsby B70 vibrato.

Sadly, there's no news on prices yet, but we'd expect something around £500 or below mark for these beauties. Until then, salivate over this spec…
