Very pleased with my purchase. Chris @ MF knows Gibson and I appreciate his candor and expertise. Almost picked up a LP Jr.(sentimental should not make decisions)and glad I backed out of it. LP Custom DC has it all. Merry Xmas to me......and to all you Gibson peeps as well...rock away..rock away...rock away all!

Wanna buy a custom shop Gibson?

By jp-ak8OO

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Gibson Custom 1960 Les Paul Special Double Cutaway Electric Guitar:

I grew up worshiping this guitar. I picked it up NYC shortly after it came out. originally I loved the tone (or was it the Bogner Shiva?). I got it home and when I began to loosen up and really start playing, strings started snapping. The reason was the ends on the bridge were very rough and cut when an whole tone bend on the high E was attempted. As a result I began to not trust the instrument and started reaching for other guitars, my fix will be a tone pros bridge. The tone controls are useless they go from clear to mud with little in between. I really wanted to love this guitar and it is a lot of money for a reissue of an "entry level" style Gibson that I will have to spend more money on to make playable. On a good day the tone is great, but for over $2K there are much better guitars albeit without the nostalgia.

Rockin' little guitar

By Scary Uncle Gary

from Unadilla, NY

Comments about Gibson Custom 1960 Les Paul Special Double Cutaway Electric Guitar:

They don't get a lot simpler than this. A mahogany slab with two smokin' P90s and a simple bar bridge. The result: tone, tone, and more tone! Combine it with a great feeling neck, and you've got a great little guitar that you won't be able to put down.I wish I'd discovered this guitar years ago. It's a real sleeper in Gibson's Historic line.

1960 historic LP Special Double cutaway

By R Bolz

from Albuquerque, NM

Comments about Gibson Custom 1960 Les Paul Special Double Cutaway Electric Guitar:

Great find that is very true to the original 1960 guitar (which I played and I always wanted to own). The true predecessor to the 1961 SG shaped LP because of the pick-up spacing. A great Axe to play with the vintage sound you'd expect of it's lineage.
