Overview

The Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Custom Figured Maple Electric Guitar in Trans Blue has a beautifully figured maple top that was hand-selected to be shown off by a transparent finish. The mahogany back shares the same transparent finish. A one-piece mahogany neck and solid mahogany body provide plenty of warm tone. A maple fingerboard adds some bright attack while 490R and 498T Gibson humbuckers deliver warm rhythm and hot, solid lead sounds. Gibson also includes gold hardware in a tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, as well as a bound body, neck, and headstock.

Amazing Beauty, Playability and Tone

By Doug Wolfberg

from Harrisburg, PA

When I saw this guitar is was one of those things I "had to have." Everyone says they love the Les Paul sound but love maple fingerboards. Well, here you go. The maple board gives this guitar a feel and playability unrivaled in a Les Paul, and the maple top adds brightness, clarity and balance to the full-bodied growl for which the traditional mahogany LPs are famous. This guitar is breathtakingly beautiful, the figured maple top and transparent finish (blue, in my case), along with the usual LP Custom appointments (bound top, back, neck and headstock, gold hardware, etc.) make this a stunning guitar that will turn heads and get noticed. I play classic rock, usually on the heavier/distorted side, but even with a "dirty" tone, the sound of this guitar is great. The maple top adds a clarity and balance, while still retaining the ballsy, throaty sound that I love from Les Pauls. I've also found myself using the neck pickup more frequently than usual, because the tone is full but not too thick, as can sometimes be the case with other LPs. In short, I was a bit conflicted about spending this much money on a guitar, especially when I already own three other Gibson LPs (a 1960s LP "Traditional," a LP Axcess, and a LP Studio), but I am beyond pleased with it. My advice is to part with some of that disposable income and buy this guitar if you love Les Pauls...this will be the crown jewel of your collection.
