The Gibson Les Paul Custom has all the characteristics of the model from the mid-1950s, but also features several modern appointments.
A stunning hand carved maple top coupled with a mahogany body gives the Les Paul Custom is beautiful depth and snap that guitar enthusiasts love. This classic combination of tone-woods has stood the test of time and gives a superior sonic range in comparison to single wood bodies.
A 22 fret richlite fingerboard is bonded to the solid mahogany neck which is glued into the body and outfitted with pearl block inlays and finished in Gibson's traditional rounded profile for a superb playing experience and feel.
The Les Paul Custom features a Gibson 490R pickup in the neck position which gives the tonal characteristics of the original PAF's, and a 498T pickup in the bridge position, which swaps the 490R's Alnico II magnet for an Alnico V providing more emphasis on mid and high ranges. Each pickup has its own independent tone and volume control for fully customisable tones.
Other key components include Gibson's legendary Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, metal tulip tuners, multi-ply white and black binding on both the top and back, stunning gold hardware and a 1 11/16” nut width.
The Les Paul Custom comes complete with standard Gibson custom case and a certificate of authenticity, this really is a guitar for life that will bring you years of high quality feel and sound.
