Built Like a tank

By Shawn Meister

from Dresher, PA

Comments about Gibson Custom Limited-Edition Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar:

I own this guitar, and let me say that when I was shoping for a Custom Les Paul, This one beat them all. I was going to put in the Active EMG 81 & 85, Like Zakk Wylde has, put this guitar has the heavy bottom end with crisp highs, And the Harmonic Squels are dead on with the stock pick ups, Why mess with perfection. Grab one while you can

Close. . .

By Jason P

from Pittsburgh

Comments about Gibson Custom Limited-Edition Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar:

I do not own one but I have an original'82 Silverburst. While these are close, they do not have the same tone as mine. If you are looking for a vintage looking guitar with vintage sound, keep looking. But if you are looking for a fresh and tight sounding Paul in a cool color, negotiate on the price a bit if you can and you will have a guitar that almost no one else has!!!

FINEST GIBSON EVER!!!

By Ripps4-29

from Reno ,NV

Comments about Gibson Custom Limited-Edition Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar:

The silverburst lespaul is the rarest, but it is that way for a reason. That reason is because of the classy tone, the wonderfully crafted hardware, and the simply mezmerizing paint job. I thought my eyes had a problem when I saw it in person, and I thought the only had older pictures on the product. This guitar is EXTREMELY pricey, but who cares when you got a near-Jimmy Page tone? Besides, this axe will impress you when you set it in your lap and strike that B string. Buy it today!

The Best Les Paul Custom ever made!

By Niki Starr

from Gladewater, Tx

Comments about Gibson Custom Limited-Edition Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar:

I own this guitar and it is truely amazing. Just look at the finish. I could sit and stare at it for hours. The neck is so silky smooth and makes anyone play like a pro. If there is anyway you can get your hands on one of these custom Les Paul's, do it. You won't regret it. I didn't. I also own a '83 Silverburst just like my new one. While the new Silverburst is close on tone, it it just one click off. But to tell you the truth, I play the new Silverburst more. The 490R and 498T will make anyone a believer. Plug this baby into a 100 watt Fender Twin Amp, turn it up to 10 and rattle windows and pictures on the wall. This is the last Les Paul Custom I will ever buy. In your letter to Santa, beg him for this Les Paul! If you don't get it, just put it on a card. What are you waiting for? These guitars don't come along very often.

The Hottest Gibson Available

By Billfold

from Birmingham Alabama

Comments about Gibson Custom Limited-Edition Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar:

This is the Best Gibson Les Paul I currently own. I have several vintage Paul's and this one is a head of them all. Heavey like a Les Paul should be and has a world of tone. I bought this one over a Zakk Wylde and Im glad I did. The price tag may seem heavy but its all well worth it
