Following hot on the heels of the three 50th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul Standard models is the sister solidbody, the 50th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul Custom.   Only 200 are being made for worldwide distribution.  Aside from a new serial number sequence and a correct one-piece mahogany top, the real meat and potatoes of this edition is the presence of a 1960 slim taper neck.  Black Beauty fans who would prefer the slimmer ’60s style neck, rejoice: this is your guitar.  Our inside sources tell us that this neck will be most similar in feel to the “type 2” profile neck featured on the 50th Anniversary ’60 Standard, which Gibson describes as a “transition” shape between the chunkier ’59 profile and the very slim late ’60 shape.  It’s a gloss finish only, 2-pickup configuration, and it comes in any color you like as long as you like black.

The Music Zoo will be a stocking dealer, we expect to have them in the store within 60 days.  Retail is $7,059 with the MAP price coming in at $4,999.  Want to pre-order?  Let us know.
