Legendary rocker Vivian Campbell has been a driving force in the world of rock since the early '80s. Proving himself as a true rock icon, Campbell has worked with countless world-famous bands, most notably with Def Leppard for over two decades and Dio at the start of his career. Through close collaboration with Campbell himself, Gibson Custom is excited to introduce the Vivian Campbell Les Paul Custom. This unique Les Paul Custom boasts distinctive Campbell-approved features along with a pair of high-output DiMarzio humbuckers. Classic "tuxedo" Les Paul Custom appointments round out this fine limited edition package. If you need a hard-rockin' axe that oozes class, performance, and playability, this Vivian Campbell Les Paul Custom is the answer.

Distinctive Campbell-Approved Features
The Vivian Campbell Les Paul Custom showcases a selection of unique limited appointments that were carefully selected by the artist himself. The two-piece figured maple top is adorned in an Antrim Basalt Burst that looks brilliant along with the rubbed-patina black-and-grey color scheme inspired by the coastal rock formations found in Vivian's hometown in Northern Ireland. The uncovered pickups and the hardware, which are normally finished in gold on Custom models, are finished in satin chrome to complement the finish exquisitely. The neck is shaped into a high-speed '70s C-shaped profile while the richlite fingerboard carries 22 Dunlop jumbo frets for superb playability across the entire neck.

High-Output DiMarzio Humbuckers
Also selected by Campbell, this Vivian Campbell Les Paul Custom comes fitted with a pair of passive, high-output DiMarzio humbuckers. With plenty of midrange grind and ultra-smooth trebles, the DiMarzio Super 3 neck pickup works wonders for players who crank up the distortion and scoop out the mids on their amps. In the bridge position, this Les Paul comes equipped with the replacement pickup that changed the world in the '70s—the DiMarzio Super Distortion. Powerful and toneful, the Super Distortion will drive your tube amp into complete overdrive, giving you thick, boosted mids, massive lows, and chunky trebles. The electronics are wired by hand and come complete with Orange Drop capacitors and a Switchcraft toggle switch.

Classic "Tuxedo" Les Paul Custom Appointments
Although this signature limited model is very different from your typical Custom, this guitar just couldn't be called a "Les Paul Custom" without those timeless "Tuxedo" appointments. With multi-ply bindings, mother-of-pearl full block fretboard inlays, and that classy mother-of-pearl headstock inlay, this Les Paul Custom still remains true to its predecessors while offering a unique style that's unlike any other Custom.

Beauty and a BEAST!


I have wanted a LP Custom for many years. I have considered lots of them over the years but this one finally made me pull the trigger. Besides being beautiful it has a great neck, not skinny but not fat either. You'll know right away it's not a 60s Les Paul. The solid body gives this guitar tons of sustain. The lack of binding on the back makes this guitar slightly more comfortable but it's a Les Paul... if you're looking at this guitar you know comfort isn't it's first priority. Bottom line is, it has looks, tone and playability!
