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 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 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.
