A retro-inspired double-cut Les Paul fusing vintage charm with modern enhancements.

The Gibson Custom Les Paul Special Double Cut Figured Maple Top VOS takes you back to the golden era with its vintage-inspired design, while incorporating modern upgrades for enhanced tone and playability. Whether you're a traditionalist or a modern player seeking classic vibes, this iconic double-cut will inspire you with its premium look, feel and sound.

Striking Vintage Looks With a Figured Maple Top

This Les Paul's stunning AAA figured maple top immediately catches the eye with its mesmerizing grain patterns. The beautiful top sits over a resonant mahogany body, recreating the classic tonewood combination that made the originals so revered. Vintage-style fingerboard binding adds an extra touch of elegance. A nitrocellulose lacquer finish not only looks phenomenal but allows the guitar to breathe and age gracefully over years of playing. Every inch of this instrument's aesthetic exudes vintage vibe while retaining modern playability.

Comfortable Vintage Neck Profile and Playability

Rounding out the vintage-meets-modern appeal is the neck profile and overall playability. The hand-rolled vintage fingerboard binding provides a broken-in feel right out of the case. The '60s-style neck profile offers a familiar, comfortable grip that's ideal for chording while still allowing effortless string bends. Vintage Tall frets let you bend strings with ease. From the first time you pick it up, this guitar plays like a well-loved classic while offering modern levels of resonance, sustain and tuning stability.

Custombuckers Deliver Articulate, Dynamic Tones

At the heart of this guitar's tone are a pair of Gibson's highly regarded Custombuckers. These premium humbuckers stay true to the PAF heritage while offering increased clarity and articulation. You'll notice an enhanced dynamic response as you dig in, with the ability to go from warm, rounded rhythms to wailing leads with ease. The Custombuckers also have an airy, three-dimensional quality that breathes life into your playing. Plugged straight into your favorite amp, these pickups will make you feel like you're transported to a 1960s recording session.

Precise Tuning and Sustain With the ABR-1 Bridge

Contributing to the guitar's vintage-inspired yet modern feel is the ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece. This hardware setup pairs the tone and sustain of a vintage Tune-O-Matic with the tuning stability of a modern design. Intonation is easy to set and stays locked in place even with aggressive string bends and tremolo use. The solid ABR-1 bridge transfers string energy straight into the body for enhanced resonance and singing sustain. It's the perfect bridge for everything from warm jazz tones to wailing rock leads.
