A seductive imagining of a landmark Les Paul with a Heather Ploy finish.
This 1957 Les Paul Custom Reissue Prototype from Gibson Custom starts with all the historically accurate appointments and legendary tone of the original including a solid, non-weight relieved mahogany body with carved mahogany top. However, on this prototype, the finish is a non-traditional Heather Ploy that makes this '57 Les Paul Reissue Prototype even more alluring. The headstock is made from Holly head veneer, as opposed to fiber, just like it was in 1957, and the vintage-style kidney tulip tuners are mounted in a straight line, also as they were on the original. The 24 ¾-inch scale length neck is made from one solid piece of mahogany, and attached to the body using a long neck tenon one of the Les Pauls more distinguishing characteristics of the 1950s. The neck is topped by a 22-fret ebony fingerboard outfitted with pearl block inlays matching the size of color of the originals.
Of course, two of Gibsons legendary Burstbucker pickups deliver all the subtle variations of true, classic humbucker tone by using historically unmatched bobbin windings and Alnico II magnets. The guitar's ebony finish also matches the hue of the earliest versions, giving this Gibson Custom model the accurate and distinct appearance of the original model.
Other historical appointments include CTS potentiometers, bumble bee capacitors, multi-ply white and black binding on both the top and back, gold hardware, period-correct Switchmaster jack and jackplate and Gibson's traditional early '50s rounded neck profile. Each guitar also comes with the standard Gibson Custom case
