The 1957 Gibson Les Paul Custom is one of the greatest electric guitars of all time. It modeled excellence for many future Les Pauls, as well as plenty of other guitars. Now, Gibson celebrates the legacy of this Les Paul by reissuing it with gorgeous ebony/pearl/gold design aesthetic, '57 vintage specs with a Bigsby tailpiece, and tremendous triple Custombucker pickups. This guitar is for the player that wants to own an incredibly beautiful vintage-designed Les Paul Custom.

Gorgeous Ebony/Pearl/Gold Design Aesthetic
The Gibson Custom Shop 1957 Les Paul Custom Reissue proves just how attractive a guitar can be. Replicating the famed "Black Beauty", Gibson put some real time into reviving all the original details of this '57 Les Paul Custom – from the dimensions, to the inlays. This Les Paul Custom features a 1-piece solid mahogany body draped in a glossy, ebony finish. The body is lined with multi-ply binding. Coupled with gold hardware and elegant mother-of-pearl inlays, Gibson has created a design aesthetic that can only be described as mesmerizing.

'57 Vintage Specs with a Bigsby Tailpiece
Every aspect of this guitar was pored over to make sure it was dead-on like the original. The neck is cut from solid mahogany into chunky C-shape and topped with a fretboard made from a gorgeous cut of solid ebony. It holds 22 frets and 1950s pattern mother-of-pearl inlays, true to original form. The bridge is a no-wire ABR-1 paired with a Bisgby vibrato tailpiece. The Bigsby is a gleaming gold that not only catches your eye, but allows you to create delicate vibrato sounds. Just beneath that are very cool butyrate black top hat knobs, which almost go unnoticed against the ebony finish. The headstock sports the one-of-a-kind Gibson logo, surrounded on each side with vintage-styled Kluson Waffleback tuners with pearloid tips. Every inch of this guitar is worthy of worship. It even comes complete with a brown/pink Lifton reissue 5-latch hardshell case.

Tremendous Triple Custombucker Pickups
It doesn't just look like the original Black Beauty, it sounds like it too. Gibson's Custom Shop outfitted this '57 reissue axe with three amazing Custombucker Alnico III pickups. They left them unpotted to be totally true to the original and obtain an accurate vintage sound. The volume and tone controls are wired with CTS 500K audio taper potentiometers and paper-in-oil capacitors. All of these intricate design features give the electronics on this '57 Les Paul Custom a blistering, genuine sound you'll fall head over heels for.
