The Epiphone Goth Series lends a dark, mysterious look and superhuman feel to three favorite Gibson solid body models. The Goth Les Paul Studio/FR, Goth 1958 Explorer/FR and Goth 1958 Flying-V/FR have an optional licensed, double-locking Floyd Rose tremolo system for added moves and grooves, and '57N Hot-B humbuckers.

The Epiphone Goth Collection is based upon Gibson's successful 2000-2002 "Gothic" line of guitars. The Epiphone Goth Series was introduced in 2002 with certain models still in production today. In 2013, Epiphone released a limited edition Goth SG Special as part of a Performance Pack.
