A Deep Chocolate Finish and Rosewood Fingerboard Meet a Classic Gibson GuitarAs conceived by guitarist and inventor Les Paul and Gibson President Ted McCarty in 1954, the original Les Paul Custom was all about the black-tie looks and elegant appointments, a "black beauty" through and through with a gloss black body, a jet-black ebony fingerboard and top-shelf features. While staying true to the original ethos, the new Les Paul Custom VOS Maduro from Gibson Custom also represents a historic marker in time: it's a true evolution of the iconic model to represent the needs both of players and of planetary resources at the dawn of the second decade of the new millennium, the culmination of a long path of alternative wood testing, and the result of extensive query among Gibson's global player base. In so being, it's also a killer-looking, sounding and playing Les Paul, and a new classic of the Custom line. To complement its rich chocolate-brown finish (inspired by the deep color of Maduro broadleaf, used in the making of fine cigars), the guitar carries a bi-layered Indian rosewood fingerboard rather than the traditional ebony fingerboard. This is one of the ways in which Gibson Custom is addressing the challenge presented by current limits in the global supply of ebony, while also keeping the Les Paul Custom Rosewood Maduro true to its designers' stylistic intentions. It enables the use of this new luscious brown finish without the jarring look of a black fingerboard. This model features a VOS finish with nickel hardware and vintage-styled '57 Classic pickups. Includes Custom inlays and binding, and represent sublime new looks to the Les Paul Custom range, with a nuanced twist on the tone which is nevertheless in keeping with tradition.
