Gibson Les Paul Classic Custom Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Solid combination of tonewoods
The Les Paul Classic Custom features a combination of tonewoods that's set the bar for rock guitars - and for good reason! The tried-and-true combination of a genuine mahogany body topped with beautiful carved maple practically define the Gibson Les Paul. You can count on the Les Paul Classic Custom to deliver the rich and tone with a well-balanced top end you crave.
Baked maple fretboard looks sharp and adds spank
Here's something you don't see every day, a baked maple fretboard. Why does Gibson use baked maple? The answer's simple. Baking removes the water from the Les Paul Classic Custom's maple fretboard, adding a snappier attack to its natural spank. What's more, baked maple is both environmentally friendly and it gives the Les Paul Classic Custom a cool, original look.
Perfect pair of PAF-style pickups
Nothing beats the sound of classic PAF humbuckers like the ones found on the Les Paul Classic Custom. That's why Gibson brought back the original PAF sound, when they created their '57 Classic humbucker, which perfectly capture the sound of the original dual-coil model. Warm, full, and beautifully balanced, these amazing pickups give the Les Paul Classic Custom that instantly recognizable Les Paul sound.

by David from Minneapolis, MNStunning guitar! The best of both worlds, you get Les Paul Custom features for aesthetics like split-diamond headstock, block pearl inlays and triple layer binding....and then Standard features like ... read more [+]the transparent back and neck finishes and chrome hardware. Then the '57 classics (favorite pickup Gibson makes) plus the innovative baked maple fretboard does add just the right amount of brightness to make a Les Paul much more versatile and rocking guitar. If they only would have added coil taps!!! Don't shy away from this one folks because it's not totally "traditional"...it really will surprise you and blow you away. close [-]

Best "Les" money can buy!
by Barry from Red Bank, NJI own or have owned every Gibson model "Les Paul" ever made and up until now my favorite was the "Les Paul" 2008 Standard, this new LP truly and honestly puts that very fine axe to shame. First, for ... read more [+]any of you folks that are concerned this maodel has a "baked maple neck" instead of rosewood, we've run into dumb luck. I tell you hands down, the Baked Maple Neck is 1000 times smoother in terms of its' action then rosewood, you'll be shocked at action this axe has. Bottom line, we all know the price of this LP is very reasonable compared to the higher line LP's but the finish and the action make it a truly great buy. If you buy it, you be glad you did, no jive. close [-]
