Guitar Of The Week:Gibson Custom - Silverburst Les Paul Custom Axcess - Exclusive Run!
The Silver Burst Les Paul Custom Axcess
A Musician's Friend Private Reserve Exclusive!
The next generation of the legendary Silver Burst Les Paul Custom from Gibson's Custom Shop, this Les Paul was made to rock out in full style and comfort! Built upon the highly popular Les Paul Axcess Standard series, this powerful-sounding Les Paul has all the traditional and upscale Les Paul Custom appointments including ebony fingerboard with pearl block inlays, split diamond headstock inlay, and multiple decorative bindings around the body. Additionally, it has all of the creature comforts of the Axcess including a slightly thinner and lighter body, the "ribcage" cutout that lets the body comfortably sit close to your body, and the smoothly contoured heel for easy access to the highest frets. All of these features add up to unprecedented comfort and playability.
Two uncovered, high-powered humbuckers (498T in the bridge and 496R in the neck) fuel the Silver Burst Axcess and give you the ability to easily drive your amp into the perfect crunch or scorching lead sound. You can also back the volumes off to get a full, rich sound that is cleaner and nicely defined. Available with either a Floyd-Rose vibrato bridge with locking nut, or a more traditional Tune-O-Matic Bridge with stop tailpiece, this guitar was designed to be a player's dream with the full sound that only comes from a Gibson Les Paul. The rare Silver Burst finish is the icing on the cake and will ensure you don't go unnoticed on stage.
