The Altitude Summary

Unveiling the Classic Charm: The allure of a black Les Paul guitar is timeless, embodying an elegance reminiscent of a formal tuxedo. A standout among its peers, this Custom Shop marvel distinguishes itself with its factory nickel hardware, masterfully blending traditional vibes with a contemporary flair. While the sleek ebony finish may reveal subtle surface imperfections upon close inspection, the overall integrity remains uncompromised, free from significant blemishes.  All electronics and parts appear to be original, although Custombuckers in a LPC is less usual than the 490/498 set that is typically seen.

Sonic Excellence and Playability: Equipped with Custombuckers and an ebony fretboard, this guitar delivers a resonant punch and a versatile tonal spectrum that aficionados will appreciate. The frets show barely any signs of wear, ensuring a smooth playing experience. The instrument comes complete with all original accessories, enhancing its appeal. The neck's profile strikes a perfect balance, offering a comfortable grip that neither mimics the robust dimensions of early '50s models nor the slender feel of '60s designs, residing in a sweet spot that players will find just right.

Craftsmanship at its Finest: Insights from the Gibson Custom Shop

A Testament to Legacy and Innovation: The Les Paul Custom stands as the Gibson Custom Shop's flagship model, a testament to the exemplary standards established in the 1950s yet evolved to meet the dynamic demands of contemporary music. This instrument's aesthetic, often likened to a "tuxedo" for its sophistication, conceals a vibrant and edgy tonal character, courtesy of a harmoniously matched Custombucker humbucker set. A solid ebony fingerboard, an extended neck tenon for unparalleled sustain, and a meticulously crafted maple top over a robust mahogany body come together to inject a crisp sonic bite into a wide array of musical genres, from the mellow tunes of jazz to the vigorous rhythms of hard rock. In both appearance and sound, this Les Paul Custom is an epitome of harmony between elegance and performance.
