Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar Alpine White
Today’s Les Paul Custom is based on the model from the mid-1950s, but with several modern appointments. The body is crafted with a hand-carved maple top, which is 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 ¾-inch scale length neck is also made from one solid piece of mahogany then topped by a 22-fret richlite fingerboard outfitted with figured acrylic block inlays and given Gibson’s traditional rounded profile. The pickups are Gibson’s 490R in the neck position, which offers the tonal characteristics of the original PAFs, and the 498T in the bridge position, which swaps the 490R’s Alnico II magnet for an Alnico V, thus making it slightly hotter with emphasis on mid-ranges and highs. Other appointments include Gibson’s 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 11/16” nut width.

Gibson Custom Shop Peter Frampton Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar Ebony
Do you feel like we do...about how sweet this Peter Frampton Les Paul Custom is? Lyrical quips aside, the Frampton LP Custom is a signature instrument with a ton of history behind it.

In 1970, while opening for the Grateful Dead at the Filmore West, Peter Frampton was having a ton of trouble with feedback coming out of his hollowbody guitar on stage. A fan offered his 1954 Les Paul Custom as a solution to the feedback problem for the second nights show, and Frampton liked the guitar so much he offered to buy it from the fan. The fan in turn decided to give the Les Paul away, free of charge. The guitar would go on to be featured on the best-selling live album of all time Frampton Comes Alive, and it's all history from there.

Sadly, Frampton’s original Comes Alive Les Paul Custom was lost in 1980 when a cargo plane crashed in Venezuela. But Gibson’s Custom Shop raised it from the ashes in the form of the Peter Frampton Les Paul, a guitar crafted in the image of the 1954/1960 Les Paul Custom, but with a few new twists to the artists specifications. Wearing a high-gloss ebony black “black beauty” finish, gold-plated hardware, multi-ply body and headstock binding, and the decorative mother-of-pearl “split-diamond” headstock inlay and block position markers in its ebony fingerboard, the Peter Frampton Les Paul is the spitting image of the original. At Frampton’s request, however, it benefits from a slim-carved neck profile for optimum speed, and a weight-relieved mahogany body and carved solid maple top that both lighten the load and enhance the tone.

With this piece, we decided to go with a unique gold finish over a figured maple top which we've dubbed Champagne Burst, and a natural back and neck to showcase the grain of the mahogany - but let's not forget the gold stinger headstock! The champagne finish fades out in the middle of the top to let some figuring show through, a very cool appearance that you don't see on many other guitars.

Used 2014 Gibson Custom Shop Robby Krieger '54 Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar VOS Lamp Black
Here's a pre-owned Custom Shop Robby Krieger '54 Les Paul - these guitars were a very limited run done in 2014 with the legendary Doors guitarist. This is a VOS model, and is number 34 out of only 150 guitars - in excellent condition.

If you thought Robby Krieger only played late '60s SG Standards during his time with the Doors, guess again. Krieger did much of his recording and songwriting with a 1954 Les Paul Custom Black Beauty that he acquired in 1968. Actually, he used that guitar to write the classic doors hit, L.A. Woman.

Over the decades, Robby has left the guitar as stock except for replacing the original Alnico 5 single-coil pickup with a Seymour Duncan mini humbucker. That mod makes excellent sense considering how Krieger's relied on the front pickup for that warm, throaty signature tone of his. It's a tone that you'll readily find with the Robby Krieger 1954 Les Paul Custom: the genuine L.A. Woman!

Used 2015 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Custom Single Pickup Electric Guitar Silverburst
One pickup, a bad ass finish, and ABR-1 / stopbar. This used Single Pickup Custom is in excellent condition with no major signs of wear to be seen on it. This Single-Pickup Les Paul Custom from Gibson Custom Shop is identical to the Shop's standard two-pickup model, the exception being the elimination of the front pickup. With one pickup, no toggle switch and half the control knobs, there is a lot of room on the top of the instrument, making the guitar lighter, more resonant, and a lot of fun to play. Tone-wise it is a lot more versatile than what you might expect from a one-pickup instrument, from great warm jazz tones to a classic distortion with lots of mid-range and attack.

Used Gibson Custom Shop Peter Frampton Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar Ebony
From Humble Pie to Frampton Comes Alive and beyond, Peter Frampton has been in the pantheon of great guitarists. This pre-owned signature Les Paul is based on Peter's original factory-modified 1954 Custom, where a customer back then wanted three humbuckers and a stopbair tailpiece instead of the P-90 and Bigsby configuration. This model carries over the three pickup scheme, with '57 Classic, '57 Classic Plus, and 500T humbuckers providing everything from silky smooth cleans to screaming overdrive with ease. The classic "Black Beauty" appointments, such as Pearl Block inlays, a Split Diamond headstock inlay, and Gold hardware, combine with a slim profile neck for the ultimate in looks and playability! This instrument is in overall very good condition with some markings around the body, and a chip on the treble side of the headstock. It includes the original case, however no certificate of authenticity.
