Gibson Les Paul Custom EB GH · Electric Guitar

Like its sisters of the historic collection, the "modern" Les Paul Custom is also built at the Gibson Custom Shop. In contrast to historic reissues, the Les Paul Custom has a maple top, weight reliefs and fretboard made of richlite or maple instead of ebony.

The tight tone of the Les Paul Custom is favoured by many hard/heavy rock or heavy metal players like John Sykes or the late Randy Rhoads.

The Gibson Les Paul Standard Historic series replaces the CS-series and corresponds to the 2014 Historic series. This means that everything which made the 2013/2014 models so popular and successful (including Long Neck Tenon), is present.

The facelift includes therefore

  • No longer a rubber hose on the truss rod
  • Neck and body are connected with historically correct bone glue
  • Neck and fingerboard are connected with historically correct bone glue
  • The body back and sides are coloured with historically correct aniline dye
  • The colour scheme on the Goldtops (Top & Back) is historically accurate
  • The color of the bindings on the neck and body is historically accurate
  • The Kluson tuners are authentic
  • The guitars are equipped with Gibson Custom Humbuckers


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.
