OVERVIEW

A Custom Shop take on a classic that might-have-been.

This unique Les Paul brings together elements from several historic Gibson electrics to create one killer mash-up guitar. The Custom Shop at Gibson started with a '57 Standard Reissue, a re-creation of the first Paul to feature a pair of those glorious Gibson humbuckers. They then gave it a historically accurate gold bullion-finished maple top, they the quintessential Les Paul at its finest. It's Custom Shop crafted to be accurate to '57 specifications in every detail including the CTS pots and bumblebee capacitors. It was the first Paul to feature humbucking pickups, and this one comes equipped with BurstBuckers. Carved maple top, mahogany back, and one-piece mahogany neck with the '57 profile and the original extended tenon joint. It features binding on body and neck, nickel hardware, an original ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge, and a gorgeous iced tea burst finish. Includes Gibson Custom Shop hardshell case.

Not figured maple top!

By gillymon

from Los Angeles, CA

I just received mine today.The maple top is not "fabulously figured", as the description states. It is just a plain maple top.Everything else is correctly described, and the guitar is of the usual Custom Shop quality.

Nothing Extraordinary!

By Soulhunter

from CA

The old Les Paul, always being liked due to its tone and playability.However I do not recommend getting a custom Les Paul, it's simply not worth the extra dollars!It does have a nice tone but so do other guitars that are less known, which are built at least as well and for half the price! Definitely overrated!
