Overview

Robby Krieger' 1954 Les Paul Custom became a constant writing companion, workhorse, performing partner, muse, and musical soulmate all rolled into one right from the time he acquired it used in 1968. Nicknamed œL.A. Woman after its use on that classic track by The Doors, it contributed to many unforgettable hits, and remains in Robby' possession to this day, a tried-and-true companion to a career that has continually evolved and inspired over decades.

Now, through a close collaboration between Robby and Gibson Custom, a very limited number of hand-crafted replicas of the Robby Krieger 1954 Les Paul Custom will be made available to discerning collectors and players. Full and unrestricted access to the original guitar has yielded Gibson Custom' luthiers the means of precisely recreating the feel, look and tone of this legendary instrument. One hundred of these hand-aged guitars will be produced

Every Robby Krieger 1954 Les Paul Custom is recreated based on hands-on examination, digital scanning, intimate photography, measurement, and study of Robby Krieger' 1954 Les Paul Custom to insure a playing experience that' as close to the original as humanly possible.

Notable details include the closely matched dish carve and neck profile carve, the accurate ebony fingerboard with aged pearl block markers, accurate vintage multi-ply binding, aftermarket Seymour Duncan neck pickup, and painstaking hand aging to match every ding, scuff and check line found in Robby' guitar. In short, the Robby Krieger 1954 Les Paul Custom puts a guitar that would normally be untouchable into the hands of a limited number of discerning players.
