The Gibson Les Paul Custom is based on the model from the mid-1950s, but features several modern appointments.
The Gibson Les Paul Custom features a hand-carved maple top with a solid mahogany body. The 24 -inch scale length neck is also made from one solid piece of mahogany then topped by a 22-fret Richlite fingerboard outfitted with pearl block inlays and given Gibsons traditional rounded profile.
The Les Paul Custom features Gibsons 490R pickup in the neck position, which offers the tonal characteristics of the original PAFs, and the 498T pickup in the bridge position, which swaps the 490Rs Alnico II magnet for an Alnico V, making it slightly hotter with emphasis on mid-ranges and highs.
Other appointments include Gibsons legendary Nashville Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, metal tulip tuners, multi-ply white and black binding on both the top and back, gold hardware and a 1 11/16 nut width.
The Les Paul Custom guitar comes with the standard Gibson Custom case and certificate of authenticity.
