Product Description

Do you feel like we do...about how sweet this Peter Frampton Les Paul Custom is? Lyrical quips aside, this used and still in excellent condition Gibson Custom Shop Peter Frampton Les Paul 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 richlite 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.
