Gibson Les Paul Custom WR GH · Electric Guitar

Like its sisters of the historic collection, also the "modern" Les Paul Custom is 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 Lews Paul Custom is favoured by many har/heavy rock or heavy metal players like John Sykes or the late Randy Rhoads.

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.
