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.
