Weight-relieved Les Paul Custom

With its sonic punch, fluid playability, and classic "tuxedo" appointments, the Les Paul Custom is equal parts elegance and brute strength. Fitted with a matched 490/498 humbucker set that takes you from mellow jazz tones to full shred with a pinky twist, this majestic beast is ultra-responsive to your touch. Its fast-action neck, smooth-as-silk Richlite fingerboard, and medium-jumbo frets facilitate the speedy, dexterous fretwork we've heard across prog, fusion, and hard rock genres from guitar virtuosos like Robert Fripp, Al Di Meola, and Zakk Wylde. Gibson's Custom Shop luthiers selected premium mahogany for the body (weight-relieved for comfort), capped it with a 2-piece carved maple top, and spec'd a long neck tenon for greater mass at the neck joint. It's a classic recipe for rich, sustaining, articulate tone that'll slice right through the mix. This Les Paul Custom is a limited-edition run of only 200 guitars worldwide. Better get yours while you can!

A tradition of effortless playability

The Gibson Les Paul Custom is well known for its playability; many guitarists use the word "effortless" to describe it. Soon after its 1954 introduction, players (and Gibson literature) started referring to it as the "Fretless Wonder." It wasn't fretless, of course, but Gibson had fitted the Custom with flat, low-profile frets, which allowed your fingers to fly over the fingerboard. Today's LP Custom is equipped with medium-jumbo frets more suited to contemporary playing styles, but ultra-playability remains a hallmark of this iconic solidbody electric guitar.

Carved maple + weight-relieved mahogany = sustain + comfort

Although the original Les Paul Custom had an all-mahogany body, today's Custom features a carved, 2-piece maple top over a mahogany back. This combo serves up the density needed for massive sustain. For increased playing comfort, Gibson has strategically created chambers within the mahogany body to relieve weight while retaining the characteristic Les Paul sustain. So you can gig all night with this axe, and not have to visit a chiropractor the next day. Gibson's tone recipe also happens to look amazing when the maple top is visible under a translucent finish. The result is a highly playable instrument that looks and sounds incredible. Gold hardware provides a crowning finishing touch for the Les Paul Custom.

Matched humbucker set delivers a universe of tone

This limited-edition Custom is spec'd with a matched pair of 490/498 humbuckers. Naturally, these pickups really shine when pumping out the classic fat, snarling tone that is the Les Paul's stock in trade. They are delightfully responsive, though — simply roll back the volume, and they clean up beautifully. Whether you're delivering your musical message with mellow jazz tones, bone-rattling crunch, or a blistering liquid inferno — the Les Paul Custom rewards your touch with world-class responsiveness.

Gibson voiced the pickups on the Les Paul Custom for tonal characteristics similar to their '57 Classics, but with a slight increase in the upper mids for a more contemporary humbucker sound. The neck-position 490R gives you the tonal characteristics of an original PAF, albeit with a slight upper mid bump, which delivers clarity and definition that complement the wonderfully warm sound of this pickup: great for tasty, chimey rhythm work. Gibson's 498T Alnico Humbucker is the ideal bridge pickup if your playing requires an emphasis on mids and highs. A high-output version of the 490T, this pickup combines a slightly hotter Alnico V magnet with a specially wound coil combination. The result is increased crunch and sustain — a potent sonic elixir for heavier music styles. Each pickup's pole pieces are aligned to match the string spacing at the neck and bridge, respectively.

Nitro finish, for the look and feel of a classic

This Les Paul Custom Limited wears a gorgeous nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Nitro finishes — standard back in the day — are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to "breathe." Nitro finishes not only look vintage-y wonderful, but they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities. This guitar has the look (and feel) of a lovingly cared for classic — one that will only improve with age.

- Your local "luthier" is not God. We have received -numerous- false claims by a customer's local "luthier" (aka Youtube specialist / self-proclaimed master of the universe) that a guitar has a bad neck set, has a warped neck, broken truss rod, looks at them funny, or is just generally not good to them because they want to sell them their own service work or guitar. These claims will not be considered valid and you'll have to take the issue up with the manufacturer that covers the instrument under their warranty policies and procedures. Once the instrument is inspected or evaluated by another "luthier", the instrument is considered altered and void of return. Period. No exceptions.

- All damages incurred during shipment will be the responsibility of the shipping company which delivered the item (USPS or UPS). A claim will be filed immediately and claim number confirmation issued to the recipient. The recipient will hold on to the damaged item and all of its packing contents / materials until the claim has been resolved in one of the following manners: the item is picked up by the shipping company for salvage and the recipient will then be reimbursed in full; the claim is rejected at which point we will seek further evidence to appeal and issue refund upon the case outcome; the shipping company advises us the damages are not their responsibility (at which point we will appeal and seek return of the damaged item for refund / replacement). Any attempt to return the item immediately and not follow these procedure voids any refund / return remedies. Please be advised that all of our outgoing packaging is high-definition video-recorded to avoid claims of damages occurring prior to shipment
