    Comments about Gibson Custom Alex Lifeson Signature ES-Les Paul Semi-Hollow Body Electric Guitar:

    I heavily researched this axe before I bought it in Nov 2017. This is the first Gibson axe to introduce the color-Antique White (not Alpine White like the regular Custom). There are only 200 of these guitars made-100 for the US and 100 for over-seas stores. The Orange-drop capacitors and the 550K pots, which are hand-wired, fuel the MHS (Memphis Historic Spec) pickups that are styled after the classic PAFs of the early 50's. (For further introduction, see the NAMM 2017 videos with Mike Volt of Gibson Guitars). The Historic truss rod is much thicker than the standard truss rod. (This is supposed to come with a user's manual and truss rod wrench which mine did not. So, verify before you order)...Also, this is the first Gibson Custom to be added to the Gibson ES Les Paul line...When opened, the accompanying black, decorative booklet shows a pic of Alex holding the ES on the left side and the CoA on the right side with the serial number & Alex's signature. Bottom Line: If you want a Gibson Custom with all the Custom appointments that's light-weight and you favor the ES style, this is your axe. As you can tell from Brian's demo that these MHS humbuckers make this sound like a solid-body Custom...AND this is already a collector's item...
