Epiphone Jared James Nichols ‘Old Glory’ Les Paul Custom
Details on this new signature model guitar are scarce, but we know for sure it launches on Thursday. The new Epiphone Jared James Nichols ‘Old Glory’ Les Paul Custom looks, in my humble opinion, stunning!
I’m a huge fan of stripped back guitars and I love Les Paul Customs, so to see a single P9o style pickup in the bridge of a black Custom, has me salivating.
Jared is one super hot player and is known for playing Epiphone and Gibson guitars stock, just with the neck pickup removed. This new Old Glory model, just screams cool as f**k and I have a feeling it will sell really well.
I’m a huge fan of Epiphone guitars and love my Brent Hinds Signature Custom Flying V, especially its huge fat neck. So if this new Jared James Nichols model has a big neck, my wallet will be taking a hit.
Hardware and specifications wise we know nothing official yet, but I have found that Epiphone is using better quality hardware throughout their signature models the last few years. Just look at any of the recent Joe Bonamassa models for example.
I’m liking the wrap-around bridge and the Blues Power plaque where you would normally see a stop tail. This signature guitar looks like a stripped back tone monster and you can get a teaser of Jared playing it on his Instagram post below.
The official Epiphone video is now available online, so you can check that out below as well and here Jared describing how Old Glory came into existing.
