Gibson have a huge team of expert luthiers on board at their Custom Shop, and you can see the fruits of their most recent efforts in the Modern Les Paul Axcess Custom. Constructed from high quality woods and materials to improve comfort and the overall playing feel, the Modern Les Paul Axcess Custom has been redesigned to appeal to the masses. Plus, the Ebony finish of this model is complemented beautifully by gold hardware.

Classic Combination

As with many Les Paul guitars before now, the Modern Les Paul Axcess Custom features the conventional partnership of maple and mahogany. Two pieces of maple are used for the body top for a crisp, clear tone. Paired with the maple top is a solid mahogany body which features weight relief for a more lightweight feel, reducing fatigue when you play. There is also a comfort-carve belly scarf for improved playability and performance, while the redesigned back contours feel more comfortable than ever. Multi-ply white binding completes the Ebony body.


The Modern Les Paul Axcess Custom is firmly fitted with a 24.75 inch scale length solid mahogany neck. Access to the higher frets is facilitated by the quintessential single cutaway in the body. The neck is shaped to the Slim "C" profile for an optimal playing feel that is ideal for faster playing styles. The neck is topped with 22 medium-jumbo frets on a richlite fingerboard which offers a sumptuous playing surface beneath your fingertips. Block pearl inlays decorate the frets guiding each note or chord transition. The neck features rolled binding over the frets for an enhanced feel in the hand.

496R and 498T Humbuckers

Blistering, vivid humbucker tones can be achieved by means of the 496R and 498T pickups. These pickups are known for their incredibly hot tone from the neck and bridge positions offering a powerful responsive voice. Each of the pickups are powered by Alnico magnets which adds to their beefy output. Whether you're playing potent leads or thick rhythm, the Modern Les Paul Axcess Custom will duly respond.

At the lower bout of the body there are two 500K Push-Pull Pots for Tone Control and Coil Splitting, and two 500K Pots for Volume Control accompanied by a Switchcraft toggle switch.

Hardware and Finish

A new addition to the Modern Les Paul Axcess Custom is the Apex headstock. This new design adds strength and resilience to the guitar for a long-lasting lifespan. The headstock is fitted with Grover Keystone tuning keys in a gold finish which provide reliable, accurate tuning even after heavy use.

The body is also complete with gold hardware, including an ABR-1 bridge and stop bar tailpiece for exceptional sustain and tone. Keeping your new axe protected could not be more straightforward, as thankfully Gibson include a Brown/Pink Custom Shop hard case with each one.
