Time-honored tonewoods, '57 Classic pickups and special inlays.
The Gibson Les Paul Classic Custom Flower Pot Inlay Electric Guitar starts with the legendary tonewood pairing of a solid carved maple top glued to a mahogany body. Marrying maple' clarity and definition to mahogany' richness and depth produces a tonal complexity that no single-wood guitar has ever matched. Its resonance and sustain are only further enhanced by the deep-set quartersawn mahogany neck with 17-degree back-angled headstock.
Optimum playability is ensured by a slim, comfortable neck profile that measures .800 at the 1st fret and .875 at the 12th. The guitar' 22-fret fingerboard is rosewood, inlaid with trapezoid markers and enhanced by a mother of pearl Gibson headstock logo and pot inlay.
To ensure that all of these constructional features translate to the purest, richest tone possible, Gibson loads the Les Paul Classic Custom with a pair of '57 Classic humbucking pickups, routed through the traditional four-knob and three-way switch control section.
Made with genuine Alnico II magnets and wound with enamel-coated 42-AWG wire just like the hallowed PAF pickups of the late 1950s and early '60s, the '57 Classics yield creamy warm tones in the neck position and plenty of growl and snarl in the bridge, with funky, round tones in between.
A pairing of tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece ensure solid sustain and accurate intonation, while a set of premium Grover kidney-button tuners make tune-up a breeze.
Each guitar comes protected in a black hardshell case with plush lining, and includes an owner's manual and adjustment literature.

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Classic Custom Flower Pot Inlay Electric Guitar:
These pictures do not do justice to this guitar. I have taken some better pics of my own that show mine it in a better light(feel free to ask me for them) The tone that comes from the classic Les Paul pick-ups get a great familiar classic rock sound and are versatile enough due to the bluesy pick-up spliting capability to approach jazz tone. If you are looking for a Les Paul, and appreciate this Natural Maple the way I do, this guitar has it all. The only CON that I found is the "Flower Pot" as it is a cop out from writing Les Paul model or custom(as it is a "classic custom" not from the custom shop) but you may find it to be a PRO
