Epiphone Introduces Custom Adam Jones Art Collection on Guitars

The first model released through the Adam Jones Les Paul Custom Art Collection features Mark Ryden’s “The Veil of Bees.”

“Mark’s work is instantly recognizable, uniquely his own,” Adam says, “While he started in fine art, he has expanded into music and theatrical productions. What a perfect partner to kick off the series with.”

Each limited-edition guitar comes with a marquee back plate showing the name of the artist and artwork, a headstocks featuring an additional design by Koran Fought, and a Protector hardshell case.

The Epiphone Adam Jones Art Collection consists of seven Silverburst Les Paul Custom models, each featuring reproductions of different works of fine art on the back. Adam curated the featured artwork, and additional artwork, designed by artist Korin Faught, adorns the back of the headstock of each model.

Five distinguished artists are featured in the collection, and only 800 guitars of each model will be produced. This unprecedented limited-edition collection brings Adam’s love of art and music together.

This model from the Adam Jones Les Paul Custom Art Collection features Mark Ryden’s “The Veil Of Bees” on the back. It is also an exceptional instrument for your next musical masterpiece. It has a bound mahogany body with a maple cap, a three-piece bound maple neck with an Adam Jones Custom profile, and an ebony fretboard.

It is equipped with a reverse-mounted Epiphone ProBucker Custom Humbucker in the neck position and a Seymour Duncan Distortion in the bridge; both are wired CTS potentiometers and Orange Drop capacitors. A Marquee Back Plate with the artist’s name and the name of the artwork is also included. Finished in Antique Silverburst as a homage to Adam’s beloved original Silverburst 1979 Gibson Les Paul Custom, a Protector hardshell case is also included.
