Overview

This Gibson Custom Les Paul Axcess Custom solidbody electric guitar was designed to be played - and played, and played. It's a Les Paul like no other, with Floyd Rose, special neck joint for a "heel-less" feel, and coil splitfor chimey cleans.

This Custom Shop model is a unique Les Paul  that favours innovation over tradition - but, in the process, already starting a new tradition in its own right: This Les paul with Floyd Rose model has been a favourite of Alex Lifeson, Tommy Shaw and othergreat guitarists.

Gibson Custom Shop luthiers spec'd this axe with a "belly scarf." This way, your guitar hugs much closer to your body without that uncomfortable "digging in" sensation. No more bruised ribs after marathon gigs! What's more, the instrument's body is slightly thinner, comprising weight-relieved mahogany with a carved maple top, so the instrument feels refreshingly light - whether you're playing standing, or seated.

The "Axcess" in the Gibson Custom Les Paul Axcess Custom comes from its slight structural alteration - you get even easier access to those upper frets, thanks to the way the neck heel and portions of the back and neck joint have been contoured. As you run your hand up the neck, you'll get that "heel-less" feel, right up to the 22nd fret. Playing lead? No worries. Rip out a legato minor hexatonic run starting on the 15th fret and you'll see - and feel - what we mean. The Les Paul Axcess Custom is seriously playable.

It just wouldn't be a Les Paul without humbuckers, and this Les Paul Axcess Custom solidbody electric guitar features premium tone, thanks to courtesy of Gibson's 496R and 498T pickups. Naturally, these hot humbuckers really shine when pumping out the legendary fat, snarling tone that is the Les Paul's stock in trade. The pups are delightfully responsive, though - just roll back the volume, and they clean up beautifully. And for even greater tonal diversity, you can elicit chimey cleans via the push/pull coil split on the bridge pickup Tone knob.
