    I was watching Darrell Braun Guitars YouTube video on “Building the Ultimate Epiphone” , his project guitar was a regular Epiphone Les Paul Standard with a Root-Beer Burst finish over a Quilt top (Limited Edition Epiphone Custom Shop) that was only available from one retailer in Canada (he did not say which retailer), there was not a lot of them made so i would guess its legitimately rare.

    I have been looking for one ever since I watched his video, I have no idea what Canadian retailer sold them, how many were made but would love to buy one to mod myself.
    Thank you

    Try Long and McQuade, or as I call it, "Guitars, eh." :D

    Most Epiphone have that Limited Edition Epiphone Custom Shop stamp in the bak of the headstock. Epiphone doesn't have a Custom Shop, it's all marketing.

    Like this guy ?

    If it was a limited run for a store, you'll have to scan Canadian ad sites like Kijiji and Craiglist.

    Confession - I found this online community as a result of doing a search on literally the exact same thing the original poster was curious about. That Root Beer Quilt Top LP Standard is just d-o-p-e. Was it ever confirmed/etc that these were a one year one one to a Canadian retailer?

    The plot thickens:

    I chatted with someone at Epiphone via their official page Facebook page. Using the same example/source as the original poster, per Epiphone this would have NOT been an exclusive to a singular retailer. The EpiWiki page does cite that the 2003-2011 Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Top was available in 3 quilted finishes, of which one was Root Beer.

    To be continued...

    Ahhh ... the famous Custom Shop Epiphone Les Paul :rofl:
    And when you do a demo video, could you please tune your guitar first ? (at 3:17 ...)

    Epiphone never ever had any 'Custom-Shop' in the last 4-5 decades....
    made side by side with all the remaining 'non Custom Shop' models in the same factories by the same employees......

    it is just a sticker they put on ~70% of their guitars
