A Classic that's upgraded with coil taps, a rosewood fingerboard and Holly head veneer.

When guitarist and inventor Les Paul conceived the Custom model in the mid-1950s, he envisioned it as a œblack tie guitar suitable for the most elegant occasions. In the years since then, the Les Paul Custom has come to represent all of that and more. The most dressed-up of the Les Paul production line, the Custom is nevertheless a full-bore rocker, suitable for the heaviest riffs you want to throw at it, while still excelling on the blues, jazz, pop or fusion stage.

The Les Paul Classic Custom from Gibson USA stays true to its heritage, keeping the unique touches that make it stand out at a price players will appreciate. Featuring premium tonewoods and top-flight appointments, this is an instrument of astounding beauty and surprising versatility. With all the legendary power of the Les Paul Standard it has a Custom look that stands out from the crowd.

As with the best Les Pauls crafted since the early ™50s, the Les Paul Classic Custom starts with the legendary tonewood pairing of a solid carved maple top glued to a mahogany body. Marrying maple' clarity and definition to mahogany' richness and depth produces 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 that measures .800 at the 1st fret and .875 at the 12th. The guitar' 22-fret fingerboard is made from rosewood, and inlaid with trapeziod markers, enhanced by a mother-of-pearl Gibson headstock logo and Holly inlay.

To ensure that all of these constructional features translate to the purest, richest tone possible, Gibson loads the Les Paul Classic Custom with a pair of '57 Classic humbucking pickups, routed through the traditional four-knob with coil taps and three-way switch control section. Made with genuine Alnico II magnets 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.

A pairing of Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece ensure solid sustain and accurate intonation, while a set of premium Grover kidney-button tuners make tune-up a breeze. Each guitar comes protected in a black hardshell case with plush lining, and includes an owner's manual and adjustment literature
