Destined to be a collectible.

The feel and tone of Les Paul Classic Custom is enhanced by the baked maple fingerboard, which adds the snappy response of ebony, but retains a warm, traditional medium-brown look like pau ferro. Luxurious and toneful, the nitro lacquer finish makes all the difference in the world, especially as the guitar ages. All for tons of pure Gibson tone.

The Les Paul Classic Custom starts with the legendary tonewood pairing of a solid carved maple top glued to a mahogany body, strategically chambered to enhance resonance and reduce weight. Maple's clarity and definition teams with mahogany's richness and depth to produce a tonal complexity that no single-wood guitar has ever matched. Its resonance and sustain are only further enhanced by the deep-set quarter-sawn mahogany neck with 17-degree back-angled headstock. Optimum playability is ensured by a slim, comfortable neck profile. The guitar's 22-fret fingerboard is made from Baked Maple, a heat-treated hardwood that offers a clear tone and extreme durability, and inlaid with acrylic block markers, enhanced by a mother of pearl Gibson headstock logo and acrylic split-diamond inlay.

The Les Paul Classic Custom is fitted with a pair of '57 Classic humbucking pickups made with genuine Alnico II magnets and and wound with enamel-coated 42-AWG wire just like the hallowed PAF pickups of the late 1950s and early '60s. The '57 Classics yield creamy warm tones in the neck position and plenty of growl and snarl in the bridge, with funky, round tones in between. The Tune-o-matic bridge/stopbar tailpiece ensures solid sustain and accurate intonation, while a set of premium Grover kidney-button tuners keep your tuning rock solid.
