A tonally versatile electric guitar with premium Gibson Custom Shop appointments.

The Gibson Custom Les Paul Custom represents the pinnacle of this iconic guitar's evolution. As the flagship model from Gibson's acclaimed Custom Shop, it honors the revered 1950s original while optimizing every element for contemporary players' needs. Whether you crave searing leads, chunky rhythms or nuanced jazz tones, the Les Paul Custom delivers in uncompromising fashion.

Premium Tonewoods Cultivate Rich, Resonant Sound

The foundation of the Les Paul Custom's seductive voice lies in its exquisite tonewoods. The two-piece maple top and weight-relieved mahogany body form a potent combination—the maple injects brightness and articulation, while the mahogany lends warmth and depth. Together they produce a harmonically rich, dynamically responsive tone ideal for any genre or playing style. The solid ebony fingerboard furthers the sustain and crystalline note attack.

Uncompromising Construction Maximizes Resonance

Every aspect of the Les Paul Custom has been meticulously engineered for unparalleled resonance and sustain. The solid quarter-sawn mahogany neck tenon extends deep into the body, increasing vibrational transfer between the neck and body for notes that seem to ring forever. Vintage tall frets and the rounded '60s neck profile make expressive bends a breeze. From the Custom Bucker wiring to the period-correct Kluson tuners, the Les Paul Custom leaves no detail unaddressed.

Dual Humbuckers Unleash Vintage-Inspired Versatility

To harness every ounce of the Les Paul Custom's tonal capacity, Gibson has outfitted it with a potent duo of humbuckers. The 490R neck pickup excels at thick, liquid leads and meaty rhythms, while the hotter 498T bridge humbucker conjures searing, cutting tones perfect for solos that need to slice through a dense mix. With these pickups' vintage-inspired voicings, you can seamlessly transition from warm, buttery jazz lines to scorching rock fury.

Elegant Finishes Evoking Les Paul Legacy

In keeping with the Les Paul Custom's storied heritage, Gibson has appointed this rendition with several upscale cosmetic touches. The multi-ply body binding and classic acrylic trapezoid inlays add visual flair, while options like AAA flamed maple tops elevate the elegance even further. With its timeless tuxedo black or antique burst finish, the Les Paul Custom makes a bold statement on any stage.
