You are looking at a Gibson Custom Limited Run Les Paul Custom Scorpion Electric Guitar Red Scorpion, serial number CS703548. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (9 lbs, 0.8 oz.)

The ultimate blend of signature Custom elegance and edgy looks, the Gibson Custom Limited Run Les Paul Custom Scorpion takes the classy, upscale Les Paul model to all new aesthetic heights. With a distinctive finish, a popular pairing of Gibson 490R/498T pickups, and classic gold hardware, the Les Paul Custom Scorpion is a beautiful, but deadly creature.

A Custom That's Dressed to Kill
Featuring a mahogany weight-relieved body beneath a stunning two-piece maple top, the Les Paul Custom Scorpion comes dressed to kill in a trans top stain that sports bold alternating red stripes. An awesome complement to the stripes on the top, the smooth-playing richlite fingerboard shows off elegant split block inlays instead of the standard block inlays.

Unsurpassed Gibson Tones
Loaded up with a 490R neck pickup, a 498T bridge pickup, and a hand-wired classic 4-knob control layout, the Les Paul Custom Scorpion produces that legendary bite and power that Gibson humbuckers are famous for. Gibson's 490R embodies the tone of their classic PAF pickups, but it offers additional response in the upper mid frequency. In the bridge position, the 498T is slightly hotter and emphasizes the mids and trebles, allowing you to deliver some of the most brutal, scorching hot leads and solos.

Gold Standard
What's a Les Paul Custom without the gold hardware? Just as the earliest models, the Les Paul Custom comes decked out with all gold hardware, which includes accurate Grover tuners, a Tune-O-Matic bridge/stopbar tailpiece combo, and gold pickup covers.

  • 2pc. Figured Maple Top with Weight-Relieved Mahogany Body
