A Piece of Art and History

By Sam

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Gibson Custom Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar:

Les Paul was a genius. When he passed away, I ordered this guitar immediately. It's pure bliss to play and sounds as beautiful as it looks. Worth every penny. I hope to one day to either pass this guitar on to my grandchildren, or be buried with it!

I HAVE FOUND "THE ONE"

By Jim

from Twin Cities

Comments about Gibson Custom Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar:

First to be fair I must say that my playing does not deserve such a great instrument. My obsession with the Gibson Les Paul started as a kid but has only materialized in mid life. My Limited edition Black Beauty with uncovered pickups is the best guitar I have ever played or owned. The guitar was perfect in set up, fit, finish - absolutely perfect. The tone and playability are superb. The weight is excellent not too heavy, not too light. The volume and tone controls are precise. I cannot say enough great things about this instrument other than my other Gibson Custom shop models are jealous.

Love the Guitar but changed the pickups.

By Betancourt

from Miramar, FL

Comments about Gibson Custom Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar in 2009 and wasnt totally happy with the sound. Not a big fan of the 490r sounds too muddy. I changed the pickups for Burstbucker pickups 2 and 3 and now it sounds amazing. It is very important that you try the guitar or similar to make sure it is the sound you are looking for. Otherwise amazing guitar.

THE BEST

By david schumacher

from Portland Oregon

Comments about Gibson Custom Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar:

I just started out playing the guitar and bought this as part of a strange deal to help out a friend and I had no idea just how good this guitar really was. I later bought a 2012 LP Standard and played it for a while but when played next to the Black Beauty, it sounds like a "good" guitar and not a "great" one. Later I did extensive blind testing against the GC 1960 LP VOS and even that one sounded OK but just could not hang. I am totally convinced that this is the most bang for the buck you are going to find. Test it yourself...but get the chrome pick up covers.

This Custom Shop Les Paul Model has wonderful Tones Thanks to the 490/498 Humbuckers. The Body is aged perfectly for great resonance with high quality electronics. Makes thi Axe a Super Buy but remember that the price tag will set you back a bit.
