There's Nothing Like a Les Paul Doublecut!

The Gibson Tak Matsumoto Doublecut Custom is an elegant beast. Working closely with Japan's superstar guitarist, the world-class luthiers at Gibson Custom gave this solidbody electric guitar Mr. Matsumoto's preferred double-cutaway Les Paul body shape - which you'll find incredibly comfortable - and armed it with a pair of Burstbuckers that'll take you from mellow to sonic annihilation in a heartbeat. This axe is ultra-responsive to your touch, and when you really want to tear it up, the lightning-fast neck and precision fretwork on the Gibson Tak Matsumoto Doublecut Custom give you the action you need.

There's nothing like a Les Paul Doublecut - and this ones a jaw-dropper

Gibson's Tak Matsumoto Doublecut Custom features Mr. Matsumoto's preferred (and very comfortable) double-cutaway Les Paul body shape, and is dressed in classic Custom livery, originally spec'd by Les and Ted McCarty in 1954. The Tak Matsumoto DC Custom wears a hand-sprayed, high-gloss nitrocellulose Ebony finish, with traditional Custom appointments such as mother-of-pearl block fingerboard inlays, multi-ply body binding, gold hardware, and a mother-of-pearl split-diamond headstock logo. This is a stunning guitar.

Burstbucker pickups deliver superb vintage PAF tone

Gibson Custom paid just as much attention to the Tak Matsumoto Doublecut Custom's electronics as they did to its aesthetics. The Tak Matsumoto DC Custom sports a pair of Gibson's Burstbucker pickups - two of the best humbuckers Gibson has ever produced. When you're chasin' down the voodoo with these pups, you'll appreciate how their tight low-end, complex midrange and sweet treble nails the essence of vintage "Patent Applied For" humbuckers. From mellow jazz tones to full shred (and everything in between), Burstbuckers have you covered.

Nitrocellulose lacquer finish, for classic look and feel

This Gibson Tak Matsumoto Doublecut Custom wears a gorgeous nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Nitro finishes - standard back in the day - are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to "breathe." Nitro finishes not only look vintage-y wonderful; they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities. This guitar has the look and feel of a perfectly preserved classic.

Gibson Custom Tak Matsumoto Doublecut Custom Features:
  • Doublecut Les Paul body shape is beautifully balanced and gives you unrestricted upper fret access
  • Mahogany body and carved maple top for maximum sustain
  • Sustainable Richlite fingerboard gives you the fast, snappy feel of ebony
  • Two Burstbucker pickups serve up classic PAF tone

The Gibson Tak Matsumoto Doublecut Custom: amazing tone, playability, and looks!
