OVERVIEW

A thinner, lighter body and versatile electronics.

Part of Gibson USAs 120th Anniversary celebration, the Les Paul Custom Classic Light pays tribute to the timeless elegance of the Custom, while nailing classic Les Paul tone”all in a light, comfortable guitar thats superbly easy to play. A thinner mahogany body with traditional 9-hole weight relief secures an ergonomic experience in the hand, while a solid carved maple top assures that legendary maple/mahogany sound. Add a pair of Gibsons most popular humbucking pickups, coil splitting for single-coil tones, and that sweet Custom trim, and its a guitar that covers all bases.

The Les Paul Custom Classic Light begins with a Grade-A mahogany body with a Grade-A maple top finished in high-gloss nitrocellulose in Vintage Sunburst. Seven-ply binding, a multi-ply pickguard, and gold hardware and pickup covers make it a Custom through and through, as do traditional pearloid block inlays on a bound Grade-A rosewood fingerboard. The mahogany neck is carved to a fast, comfortable profile that measures .818 at the first fret and .963 at the 12th, while a œ120th Anniversary banner inlay at the 12th fret marks this guitar as something special. A 490R humbucker in the neck made with an Alnico II magnet and a hotter 498T in the bridge made with Alnico V take you from smooth to mean and everywhere in between, while modified wiring offers individual volume controls, a master tone, and mini-toggle switch for coil splitting. A Tune-o-matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece lock it all down for solid sustain, while a set of Grover keystone tuners on the decorative Custom headstock offer smooth, precise tune-ups. Pack it in an Historic Brown Gibson USA hardshell case and youre ready for the gig.
