EPIPHONE ANNOUNCES ‘LTD. ED. JARED JAMES NICHOLS ‘OLD GLORY’ LES PAUL CUSTOM OUTFIT’

Epiphone has announced the worldwide release of the Ltd. Ed. Jared James Nichols “Old Glory” Les Paul Custom Outfit, the premier Epiphone Signature model by the phenomenal guitarist from Les Paul’s hometown of Waukesha, Wisconsin who Music Radar named their Top 5 “Upcoming Guitar Players in the World” citing Jared’s “wild, untamable solos.” The Jared James Nichols ‘Old Glory’ Les Paul Custom features a classic 1950s style Les Paul Custom body with a single Seymour DuncanTM P-90, an Ebony fretboard, GroverTM Rotomatic tuners, and an EpiLiteTM Case along with a signed Certificate of Authenticity.

“I’ve been playing the prototype of ‘Old Glory’ on stage since the day I got it,” Nichols told Epiphone.com. “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. I can’t put it down. I’m so honored and grateful. Thank you, Epiphone!”

During the past five years touring with his trio and supporting his critically acclaimed album, Black Magic, Jared has been making fans around the world while also earning the admiration of legendary artists like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Zakk Wylde, and Aerosmith for his deft fretwork (without a pick!) and deep love of the blues. And when your hometown is Waukesha, WI–the birthplace of Les Paul–you really have no choice but to take up guitar. Fans can see the Jared James Nichols “Old Glory” Les Paul Custom Outfit, live in action as Jared will make special appearances for demos and jams in the Music EXP Tent for Gibson during the Welcome To Rockville (May 3-5), Epicenter Festival (May 10-11) and Sonic Temple Festival (May 18-19). Jared James Nichols entire 2019 U.S and European tour dates are listed below.

The Ltd. Ed. Jared James Nichols ‘Old Glory’ Les Paul Custom Outfit is modeled after Jared’s favorite stage guitar and features a 50s style Les Paul Custom with an Ebony finish, historic binding, and an Ebony fingerboard, but with the striking look of a single Seymour DuncanTM P-90 and a Gibson-style ‘Custom’ plaque inscribed Blues Power. ‘Old Glory’ also comes with an EpiLiteTM Case and a signed Certificate of Authenticity.

“Jared epitomizes what our Epiphone and Gibson brands are all about,” said Cesar Gueikian, a longtime fan and Chief Merchant Officer of Gibson Brands. “He is a true student of the guitar and takes commitment and performance to a level I have only seen in the greatest musicians. The Epiphone ‘Old Glory’ we are unveiling today pays tribute to JARED and his favorite stage guitar and we hope it will inspire new generations of players, too. All of us at Gibson and Epiphone are proud of Jared and excited to see how he shapes sound with the Old Glory. Jared’s future is bright and we are honored to be part of his journey.”
