The Lightest, Most Comfortable Les Paul Ever?

The Gibson Les Paul Custom Lite solidbody electric guitar will go easy on your back, thanks to its thinline mahogany body with traditional weight relief. It's designed to bring you the elegance and rich tone of a Les Paul Custom, without the back strain. You'll find everything you expect from a LP like a maple top, set-in mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard, and a roaring pair of humbucking pickups. And with a coil split switch in place of a second tone control, you've got all manner of single-coil tones too in the Gibson Les Paul Custom Lite.

Gibson Les Paul Custom Lite Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Classic Les Paul with a thinner, lighter design
  • Dual humbucking pickups can be coil-split for extra tonal versatility
  • Quartersawn mahogany neck enhances your tone
Classic Les Paul with a thinner, lighter design

The Les Paul Custom has always been the cream of the LP crop, but many are considerably heavier than even their LP Standard brethren. To give your back some relief, Gibson created the Les Paul Custom Lite with a thinner body profile with traditional weight relief. You get the classic look, feel, and tone of a Les Paul, without the poor posture. If you play long gigs with your Les Paul, you owe it to yourself to try out the Les Paul Custom Lite.

Dual humbucking pickups can be coil-split for extra tonal versatility

When you're talking about a Les Paul, you're talking about that big, fat, smoky humbucker sound. You've got that nice chunky neck in your left hand and you're grabbing big fat power chords and soloing all up and down the fingerboard. So Gibson put two huge-sounding humbucking pickups on this baby with hot Alnico magnets - a 490R in the neck position and a 498T in the bridge position. And for extra versatility, this LP's sports a coil-split switch in place of a second tone control. Flip the switch, and you've got access to a world of single-coil tones too.

Quartersawn mahogany neck enhances your tone

The neck is one of the most important aspects of any instrument, which is why the Gibson Les Paul Custom Lite features a quartersawn mahogany neck. Besides looking good, the straight grain of quartersawn necks is about 50% more rigid than plain-sawn necks, and less likely to warp, twist or shrink over the years. The Les Paul Custom Lite is one instrument you can count on enjoying for a lifetime.

Gibson Les Paul Custom Lite Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Thinline, weight-relieved version of the classic Les Paul Custom
  • Thinner, lighter body is incredibly comfortable to play over long gigs
  • 490R and 498T humbucking pickups serve up classic LP tone
  • Coil-split switch lets you access single-coil tones too
  • Quartersawn mahogany neck is more rigid than plain-sawn necks, for more sustain and durability
  • Bound rosewood fretboard feels and plays smooth
  • Chunkier '50s-style neck profile satisfies Les Paul purists
The Gibson Les Paul Custom Lite may be the lightest, most comfortable Les Paul ever!
