Gibson Les Paul Custom EB CH · Electric Guitar

Custom Shop

The Gibson Custom Shop was founded in 1993 with only five employees. Initially the purpose was to take care of individual orders, the endorser and special models.
The Custom Shop's first spectacular action was the revision of the '59 and '60 Les Paul Flametop Reissues. A lot of changes were to be made, to make the reissue as authentic and close to the old originals as possible.
Today around 80 experts are working at the Custom Shop, who cover all areas ranging from "one-off" instruments to limited runs and R&D. The first spectacular Custom Shop event was the revising of the '59 and '60 Flametop reissues. In order to adapt the reissues as close as possible to the old originals, about 25 changes were made in order to reach the target gradually. The first two prototypes went directly into the hands of Slash and Bryan Adams, whereupon the demand for such exclusive models increased explosively.

Gibson Les Paul Custom
The Gibson Les Paul Custom was introduced in 1952 as a "Top of the Line" model from the Les Paul series. The early versions were equipped with P90 and alnico V pickups, later on with PAF humbuckers. This luxury version of the Les Paul was preferably painted in black (hence the nickname Black Beauty), body, neck and headstock are provided with a 5 ply binding, the hardware is gold plated. The fingerboard is made of ebony and is provided with very flat dressed frets hence the name "Fretless Wonder". The Les Paul Custom 50s have a solid mahogany body. The Maple top first appeared on the reissued Customs in the late 60s. The Les Paul Custom is available in various versions and still the "special" Les Paul.
