Gibson Custom Shop '74 Les Paul Custom VOS Electric Guitar Ebony
This is a great replication of a '74 Les Paul Custom with a VOS ebony finish, and period-correct details such as a headstock volute, small dot fretboard markers, pancake-style body, and witch-hat knobs. The neck has a slim profile, great for playing leads, and the 1974 Super Humbuckers pump out a loud and bright tone that responds very well to your picking dynamics and the volume knobs, going from an overdriven crunch to full-out "three Marshall stacks on 10" blast.

Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar Aspen White Gloss
Today’s 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 ¾-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 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 Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar Ebony
We're huge fans of the Les Paul Custom, one of the classiest guitars out there. With its ebony finish, multi-ply body binding, Richlite fretboard, and split-diamond / block inlays, it's like the tuxedo of the electric guitar world, except you don't have to wait for special occasions to break out this looker. We're really digging the way the black speed knobs and uncovered black humbuckers blend in with the ebony finish, and add an extra contrast to the chrome hardware. The traditional rounded neck profile isn't too thick or thin, and the Gibson 490R/498T humbuckers combined with the Richlite fretboard give you that creamy tone that only a Les Paul Custom has.

Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar Silverburst
A store favorite, Silverburst Les Paul Customs were originally produced for a few short years in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, and we are very happy the Gibson Custom Shop has brought back this distinctive finish in limited numbers.

Two years after the introduction of the iconic Les Paul Model in 1952, Gibson president Ted McCarty and the guitar’s namesake, Les Paul, sought to introduce a new “deluxe” version of the model with “increased power, greater sustain, and a clear, resonant, sparkling tone.” The final design for the Les Paul Custom was completed in early 1954 and introduced at the Chicago NAMM show in July of that year.

This Les Paul Custom is based on the model from the mid-1950s but with several modern appointments for today’s player. The body has a hand-carved maple top with a mahogany back and features strategically routed holes to lessen the weight and enhance the tonal qualities. The 22-fret richlite fretboard has acrylic block inlays to complete the Les Paul Custom look and a traditional rounded profile for smooth playing. The pickups are Gibson 490R and 498T humbuckers. The neck position offers the tonal characteristics of the original PAFs while the 498T in the bridge is slightly hotter, with emphasis on mid-range and highs. The Les Paul Custom was also the first Gibson guitar to feature a true pioneering achievement in guitar hardware, the adjustable ABR-1 bridge.

Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Custom Quilt Electric Guitar Indigo Blue
From our friends at the Gibson Custom Shop! Here we have a very cool Quilt Maple Top guitar in Indigo Blue! This one has nice tight and small clouds to it, very strong from most angles. You'll note some deeper blue areas in addition to some strong cross grain. This one also features a matching trans-blue back. Even though this one looks amazing, 8lbs 11oz really says it all in terms of comfort, feel and tone. It's a winner through and through!

Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Custom Single Pickup Electric Guitar Aspen White
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.

Gibson Custom Shop Limited Run Les Paul Custom Florentine Electric Guitar Grape Sparkle Top
At The Music Zoo we were stunned when we pulled out this custom Gibson Florentine with a Grape Sparkle top that demands attention, yet remains classy all at once.

If these Limited Run Les Paul Custom Florentines were athletes, there would be some serious allegations against them, because they are just that awesome. We're incredibly happy that this Music Zoo-Exclusive run came out the way it did, it seems that every ingredient we threw into it with Gibson culminated in a guitar that plays, looks, and sounds like nothing else out there.

The guitar has a maple top that has been hollowed out and given "F" holes on the sides like you would find on Gibson semi-hollow models, and we gave it Les Paul Custom accouterments such as block inlays with a split-diamond headstock inlays, Richlite fretboard, multi-ply binding, Grover Kidney tuners and gold hardware. The neck has been shaped to be reminiscent of a '60 Les Paul, but with a bit more girth to the shoulders; we think it's a great shape for someone who wants something that gives you a little more to hold on to than that super-slim '60 feel.

What we think makes the guitar so special are a few key factors; TonePros long studs and inserts that interact with the Underwound Custom Buckers and semi-hollow body to give a guitar that has the biggest, most well-defined tone we think we've ever heard out of a Les Paul.
