1968 Les Paul Custom

By Rudy

from El Paso Texas

I own the Triburst color and I have had it for 2 yrs. I am real happy with the feel of the neck and playability and the sound of the 57' humbuckers specially when overdriven.

Gibson Custom 1968 Les Paul Custom

By Dave Morse

from Saline, Michigan

There's a lot of guitars out there playing Rock and the Blues, but they just don't have that bite and warmth of a Les Paul Custom. This is not to say that the Les Paul is not just as at home playing Jazz or Country, because it is. From slide to finger picking to flat picking the Les Paul sounds rich and full. If you're looking for your signature sound you owe to yourself to strap one on and give it a try it might open the door to a whole new world of musical expression, it did for me.
