You are looking at a Gibson Custom Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar Silverburst, serial number CS600697. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (9 lbs, 5.9 oz.)

The Les Paul model was first introduced in 1952, and provided the fundamental template for the design of what would eventually become the most highly coveted stringed instrument in the world. In addition, Gibson president Ted McCarty and Les Paul also sought to introduce a "deluxe version" of the Les Paul. Although the initial goal was to introduce the "deluxe" version of the Les Paul in conjunction with the original Les Paul in 1952, Gibson's strive to achieve excellence resulted in several unexpected delays. Just two years after the introduction of the original Les Paul, the final design for the Les Paul Custom was completed, and in July 1954 , the Les Paul Custom made it's official debut at the Chicago NAMM show.

Today, the Gibson Custom Les Paul Custom is made in the image of those mid-1950s models, but have been updated with several modern appointments, giving you a perfect blend of both classic and contemporary features. Crafted from a traditional pairing of tonewoods, a hand-carved maple top is fitted to the body of the Les Paul Custom. Just as the original, the body is made from a solid piece of mahogany, but the body of this Les Paul Custom features strategically routed holes to provide players with a lighter in the hand feel while enhancing the guitars' acoustic qualities and improving its resonance and sustain. Catering to the top-shelf aesthetic, the top and back are both adorned with a stunning Silverburst finish and boast multi-ply white/black binding. The neck is carved from a solid piece of mahogany into the Gibson traditional rounded profile and has a scale length of 24 3/4". The bound Richlite fingerboard houses 22 frets and is outfitted with elegant pearl block inlays.

The Gibson Custom Les Paul Custom comes loaded with a set of perfectly matched Gibson pickups. A 490R pickup sits in the neck position to faithfully emulate the tone of those sought after original PAF pickups, while the 498T in the bridge position swaps out the 490R's Alnico II magnet for an Alnico V magnet, making it slightly hotter with emphasis on the mids and trebles — perfect or lead riffs and solos.

Aside from its aesthetic enhancements, the Les Paul Custom was the first Gibson guitar to offer the groundbreaking ABR-1 bridge, invented by McCarty. Today, this Gibson Custom Les Paul Custom comes equipped with the legendary Gibson Nashville Tune-O-Matic bridge paired with a stopbar tailpiece. The multi-bound headstock flaunts the prominent, genuine mother of pearl five-piece split diamond inlay and a set of Grover tuners. A Certificate of Authenticity is included with your purchase of the Gibson Custom Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar. This finely crafted instrument also comes with the full protection of a hardshell case.
