Black Beauty is one beautiful beauty!

By BCRich

from Belfast, Norhern Ireland, UK

This guitar is probably the best guitar I possibly own. It has great classic Gibson pickups, very versatile with virtually all effects, The neck is very good, and the sound is very classical on bypass. The value of this however could be dropped, I have found this same guitar for $3,999. But, it was a rare find. So, it is worth it for this price.

The Gibson Custom Shop 57 Custom Les Paul Black Beauty Electric Guitar with Bigsby Gold Hardware is my dram guitar. With the three burstbucker pickups, it has to be amazing. I swear that i shall one day purchase this guitar and then perhaps write another review.
