With its premium, elegant vibes and sleek, upscale aesthetic, there's no question why they dubbed the Les Paul Custom as the "Black Beauty". With this Historic '57 Les Paul Custom, Gibson Custom is honored to offer a stunning, spot-on replica of the 3-pickup version of the top-of-the-line Les Paul Custom from 1957. With vintage-spec construction and appointments and painstakingly replicated hardware and plastics, this '57 Les Paul Custom goes above and beyond what you'd normally expect from a reissue. With a trio of Custombucker pickups, this Les Paul Custom offers the perfect blend of vintage tone and unparalleled sonic versatility. Guitarists and vintage Gibson lovers will truly appreciate the time and effort that Gibson Custom has put into making this '57 Les Paul Custom as authentic as possible.

Vintage-Spec Construction and Appointments
A sleek nitro lacquer VOS ebony finish and multi-ply bindings grace a solid mahogany body and authentically-carved medium chunky mahogany neck to ensure that this reissue offers the genuine Gibson look, sound, and feel that made the originals so famous. The long tenon neck joint and hide glue construction remain faithful to vintage Gibson design while other period-correct appointments such as an ebony fingerboard with historic medium-jumbo frets, a nylon nut, and a '50s Tubeless truss rod assembly bring you even closer to the originals. Of course, what would a Les Paul Custom be without pearl block fretboard inlays, a pearl headstock inlay, and gold hardware?

Painstakingly Replicated Hardware and Plastics
With Gibson Custom's exclusive True Historic plastics and parts that have been chemically and structurally re-engineered using actual vintage examples, this '57 Les Paul Custom really exudes vintage vibes even down to the smallest detail. From the multi-ply black pickguard and black top hat knobs down to the gracefully aged Kluson Waffleback tuners, ABR-1 bridge, and lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece, this '57 Les Paul Custom is a true piece of vintage-inspired art.

A Trio of Custombucker Pickups
Triple the vintage tone, this '57 Les Paul Custom comes loaded up with three Custombucker pickups to provide a healthy serving of incredible PAF-inspired tones. With that signature vintage growl and bite, you can dial in an even wider range of tones thanks to the additional middle pickup.
