Gibson's Les Paul Custom is Gibson Custom Shop's flagship model, and for good reason. The Les Paul Custom more than lives up to the high standards set by the archetypal 1950s Les Paul Customs, yet is fully evolved to meet the needs of the modern player. The guitar's exceptional gloss Ebony finish, gold hardware, mother of pearl block inlays, and "tuxedo" vibe all contribute to a striking overall aesthetic. Beneath its surface, you’ll find a pair of matched 490R/498T humbuckers which dish out crisp, clear, yet powerful tone, whether you’re playing jazz, hard rock, or anything in between. And with a 9-hole weight-relieved mahogany body, solid mahogany neck with a long tenon joint, and a two-piece maple top contribute to a resonant, lively in-hand feel where the notes really jump off its 22-fret fretboard, with loads of sustain and tonal vibrance. Gibson’s Les Paul Custom is the absolute cream of the crop when it comes to solidbody electric guitars!
