You are looking at a Gibson Custom '57 Les Paul Custom VOS Electric Guitar, serial number 78767. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (9 lbs, 4.5 oz.)

The '57 Les Paul Custom is one of the most legendary guitars in Gibson Custom's Historic Collection. Nicknamed "Black Beauty" for its dark, gorgeous, gold-gilded aesthetics, this '57 Les Paul Custom perfectly replicates the original model. Featuring Gibson Custom Historic Collection Series construction, captivating aesthetics, and blistering electronics, the '57 Les Paul Custom VOS is a guitar that every serious collector needs in their stable.

Gibson Custom Historic Collection Series Construction
This incredible axe was built with two things in mind: complete vintage accuracy and peak quality. Gibson has achieved both. Every aspect of this guitar employs Gibson Custom's True Historic specifications, with parts reengineered from vintage samples. The Black Beauty is built with a 1-piece solid mahogany body and has an ABR-1 bridge with lightweight aluminum tailpiece. The solid mahogany, medium-chunky neck is secured with a long tenon, hide glue fit, for unmatched sustain and resonance. It's topped with a solid ebony fingerboard sporting 22 frets for an unbelievably comfortable feel and smooth playability all the way up and down.

Captivating Aesthetics
Finished with that brilliant Ebony that's Gibson Custom's VOS process, the '57 Les Paul Custom is a stand out axe with a gracefully aged appeal. Its old-school-style multi-ply binding highlights the dark finish in a way that's almost intimidating, and looks amazing coupled with the jet black multi-bound pickguard which stealthily blends in and the almost unseen control knobs. The gold pickups, bridge, and tailpiece all add an incredible touch of elegance that gives this guitar a regal presence. Kluson Waffleback tuners gleam on the headstock, with their bold, golden vintage look while the classic Pearl Block inlays pay tribute to the world-class Gibson family of instruments.

Blistering Electronics
When you're done staring at it, you can then be wowed by how it sounds. The vintage tones emanating from the two Custombucker pickups are the stuff you dream about. The bridge and neck are both outfitted with these beautiful humbuckers, which are controlled by two 500K CTS Volume and Tone pots, sporting a hand-wired harness with premium Bumblebee capacitors. A Switchcraft toggle switch takes you from bridge, to both pickups, to solo neck pickup easily, so you can adjust your tone however you like.
