A visual and sonic Les Paul powerhouse.Gibson has always been known for the quality of their craftsmanship, and the Custom Shop '57 Custom Les Paul Black Beauty embodies that tradition through and through. Originally introduced in 1957, the Les Paul Custom Black Beauty featured Gibson' then-new humbucker pickups that revolutionized the sound of electric guitars. This Custom Shop masterpiece is loaded with three BurstBucker pickups for greater tonal variety than the traditional dual-humbucker setup. Also features the classic Les Paul carved mahogany top and solid mahogany body, one-piece set mahogany neck with 22-fret ebony fingerboard, ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece, and binding on the body, neck and headstock. Using only the finest materials and electrical components, Gibson's highly skilled Custom Shop luthiers create guitars that rise to the level of fine art, for players and collectors with an appreciation for unsurpassed craftsmanship and unequalled tone. NOTE: optional gold Bigsby tailpiece may vary with Bigsby script over gold background or over black background. Use the drop-down menu above to choose your options.
