Gibson Custom

Description

Dressed for a formal occasion, this Firebird is a gorgeous assembly in black, white and gold. Taking the classic style of a Les Paul Custom and fitting it to one of Gibson's most iconic, streamlined designs is a stroke of pure genius. And the 490R/498T humbuckers make it a serious rock-and-roll machine, too.
