The "Frampton Comes Alive" guitar.

The Gibson Custom Shop has re-created the guitar that Peter Frampton played on his multiplatinum live album from 1976. Distinctive features include a mahogany back with weight-relief chambers, the Peter Frampton custom slim neck profile, and three Gibson humbuckers: '57 Classic (neck), '57 Classic Plus (middle), and 500T (bridge). The 3-way pickup selector is wired so the middle pickup is always on (with its own volume and tone) and can be combined with the front or rear pickups. Top-level Les Paul Custom features include the ebony finish, 22-fret Richlite fingerboard with pearl block inlays, single-ply white binding on top and back, kidney bean tuners,and gold hardware. Includes case.

    Comments about Gibson Custom Peter Frampton Les Paul Custom:

    I just bought this beauty. I have been playing for over 30 years now and have to rate this as the sweetest and most powerful guitar I have ever touched! What a combination. The electronics are amazing and the action is smooth as cream.

    Gibson did it again

    By Anonymous

    Comments about Gibson Custom Peter Frampton Les Paul Custom:

    This is by far the most extreme, variable, and tonally astonishing LP in Gibson's history! I can't believe an axe so remarkable would have ever have been built by anyone. stock or custom. when I first saw it, I was already taken aback by it's stunning finish. Then when I plugged it in, it's tonal range and ocean of sustain told me I would never see another Les Paul like it ever again. The Seymour Duncan Distortion humbuckers made the best overdrive sound I had ever heard. Even when it wasn't plugged into a tube amp. The middle pickup is specially wired to the way Pete likes it. With the special ability to fade, it changes the way you end a song while you play live for good.

    Well balanced ,responsive with solid feel.

    By Jaros

    from Empire State

    Comments about Gibson Custom Peter Frampton Les Paul Custom:

    The feel of this " PF " signature series Gibson Les Paul is solid and very comfortable.At the bigining I was a bit sceptical about weight of the guitar ,but weight is not excessive like some other Gibson Les Paul's. It is well balanced. The sound is simply speaking legendary.( just make shure You have good guitar amp )I particularly appreciate both the set-up and placement of 3 humbuckers and ( separate ) controls. This pick-ups are legendary '57- simply very responsive and flexible. You can get a great array of tones out of this instrument. It is the best guitar I have ever owned and played. Only the price is VERY steep. but Hey! this guitar come from Gibson Custom Shop not from Far East. ( For this price Gibson should include pick guard ,but guitar cable and cleaning clouth was a nice touch from producer)
