Gibson Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar (with Case)

From the carved maple top to the pearl block fretboard inlays, Gibson's Les Paul Custom has a build quality and beauty that other guitars can only aspire to.

What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Carved maple top Impeccable feel, enhanced body contours
Tune-o-matic bridge Adjustable action and precise intonation
490R and 498T humbucking pickups Sweet, vintage tone with crystal-clear character
Ebony fretboard Dark color, tight grain; premium fretboard wood

As the flagship model from Gibson Custom Shop, the Les Paul Custom lives up to the high standards set by its 1950s archetype while evolving to a level of tone and performance more suited to today's musical demands. Beneath the layers of its "tuxedo" appointments lies the crisp, edgy voice of a matched 490/498 humbucker set, a solid Ebony fingerboard, a long neck tenon for maximum sustain and a two-piece maple top over a solid mahogany body which adds the perfect amount of sonic bite to everything from jazz to hard rock. It sounds as good as it looks, and it looks as good as it sounds!

The 498T is bright compared to the PAF of yesteryear. I like the 498T though. The quality is there, those who rate it down don't know how to set up a guitar or just have an axe to grind (no pun intended). They are made of wood, made by human hands and hey guess what...THE ARE ADJUSTABLE FOR A REASON!
Timeless design.
Ease of Use
Ebony fretboard plays like butter
No issues. 2004 and newer are made in Gibson's Custom Shop.
Yes they are expensive but you will have a real instrument designed to out live you!
