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 �-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.
