Throughout the Gibson has issued Les Paul Customs in a paint box worth of colors (like those crazy pastels of the 1980sófuschia, anyone?). Weíre simply in heaven over this heavenly Gibson Custom Les Paul Custom finished in heavenly Pelham Blue, and with VOS nickel hardware for a slightly oxidized, been-played-a-bit look.
Todayís Les Paul Custom is based on the model from the mid-1950s, but with several modern appointments. It is crafted with a hand-carved maple top fitted to a body made from a solid piece of mahogany with strategically routed holes to lessen the weight of the guitar, resulting in a Les Paul with enhanced acoustic qualities and improved resonance. The 24 ĺ-inch scale length neck is also made from one solid piece of mahogany topped by a 22-fret richlite fingerboard outfitted with figured acrylic block inlays and given Gibsonís traditional rounded profile. The pickups are Gibsonís 490R in the neck position, which offers the tonal characteristics of the original PAFs, and the 498T in the bridge position, which swaps the 490Rís Alnico II magnet for an Alnico V, thus making it slightly hotter with emphasis on mid-ranges and highs. Other appointments include Gibsonís legendary Nashville Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, metal tulip tuners, multi-ply white and black binding on both the top and back, gold hardware and a 1 11/16Ē nut width.
