This is by far the nicest guitar I've ever owned! Really you cant buy a better guitar than this. This thing plays and sounds soooooo good! Amazing sustain and control. Love the Ebony with Chrome hardware look as well:) It also came setup just the way I like it!! Thank you Gibson and Sweetwater!!

Update to previous review

Holy ******* ****!!! I wrote a review in 2013 after receiving a brand new Les Paul Custom identical to the Black w/ Chrome hardware guitar you see here. I needed to get my Les Paul adjusted and setup better than it was when I received it. I've been blown away since then! I don't feel worthy of this guitar! Lol! S guitar like this should have a master rocking it! Seriously, this LPC is every bit the sustain God my 70's- 80's models were. There is a reason these guitars are so highly revered and mine is no different. I'm proud to own this guitar. Also, I needed to dial in my amps before I wrote that review. I wish I could back and delete that ****! This guitar is just sexy to me! It has the look of a slender beautiful woman! I also have a high-end ESP that I doesn't compare to my LPC. The ESP is a nice guitar and has some features I like, but it isn't a LP! There just isn't a comparison there! If this is any indication of how I compare the 2: the ESP is for sale, the LPC is on the stand in my greatroom. My family members are well aware that LPC is not to be touched by anybody, at anytime, for any reason, by risk of death! I hope to get another LPC after I sell the ESP. There's just nothing else like a Gibson LP!


The 2014 ebony custom is a true "Black Beauty"! The uncanned Humbuckers look and sound perfect. I don't' care for the looks of the older models. This is in my opinion , not only a dream come true. But the essential Les Paul ( R.I.P.) model. The Customs are underrated. I find them the most receptive to my versatile playing. I've had several Les Pauls, this "Fretless Wonder" rules! (\m/).

Sustain !!!

This is absolutely the very best guitar made. The variations in tones are amazing. You will experience the most control over your music with the most incredible sustain. If you want to be taken seriously, this is the one.

This guitar is...

...this guitar is everything I've ever wanted in a Les Paul Custom... I'm not particularly fond of gold hardware, and the uncovered pick-ups just scream rock and roll!!! An absolutely beautiful guitar and Sweetwater was great as usual... I'd buy it all over again in a heartbeat.
