Gibson Custom Les Paul Custom Shop Standard Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Amazing transparent finish
  • Select woods for killer tone
  • '57 Classic pickups deliver vintage PAF tone
Amazing transparent finish

One of the first things you'll notice about the Gibson Custom Les Paul Custom Shop Standard is the gorgeous transparent finish. Heavily flamed maple was used to create a stunning look, and it gives an added bite to your Les Paul's tone. Gibson Custom put a lot of time and work into this top giving it an almost 3-D look. The Gibson Custom Les Paul Custom Shop Standard will definitely let you stand out from the crowd.

Select woods for killer tone

The Gibson Custom Les Paul Custom Shop Standard's body woods present a combination of good clarity, definition and treble bite from the maple, and excellent depth and richness from the mahogany, elements found in the classic Les Paul Custom Shop Standard tone. The chambering adds a further dimension, increasing the complexity of this guitar's tone, while also increasing its acoustic volume. With hot looks and killer tone, the Gibson Custom Les Paul Custom Shop Standard is a force to be reckoned with.

'57 Classic pickups deliver vintage PAF tone

Gibson Custom paid just as much attention to the Les Paul Custom Shop Standard's electronics as they did to its aesthetics. Beginning with vintage CTS potentiometers and bumble bee capacitors, every part of its internal signal path is designed to give you absolutely dead-on '57 Les Paul tone. Of course, it's next to impossible to find genuine '50s PAFs (even for Gibson). Instead, the Les Paul Custom Shop Standard sports a pair of Gibson's '57 Classic humbuckers with historically unmatched bobbin windings. The Gibson Custom Les Paul Custom Shop Standard gives you great looks and classic tone.

Gibson Custom Les Paul Custom Shop Standard Electric Guitar Features:
  • Classic Les Paul tone with a gorgeous transparent finish
  • Highly flamed maple top for amazing looks
  • '57 Classic pickups for classic PAF sound
  • Custom Shop designed and built
  • Hardshell case included
