OVERVIEW

A precise recreation of the Custom that rocked the '70s.

True Historic Spec Reissue Les Paul featuring reformulated plastics based on lab analysis of original vintage parts, double-carved and hand sanded neck and top profiles, standard nitro cellulose finish, custom-wound Custom Bucker pickups, hot hide glue joinery, historically accurate serial number.

The choice of world-beating rock stars like Lindsey Buckingham and Randy Rhoads, the evolution of the Les Paul Custom that arrived in 1974 is an all-time classic. The 1974 Les Paul Custom Reissue brings it back in intricate detail, including the period-correct three-piece maple top and solid mahogany back with ½" slotted weight relief, period-correct plastics and hardware, and two Alnico Super 74 humbucking pickups. Block markers, ebony fingerboard, split-diamond inlay on a multi-ply bound headstock“it's all there.

Available in very limited quantities in. The closest you can come to owning an original vintage Les Paul Custom without actually acquiring an original. Comes with COA and hardshell reissue Les Paul case.
