'57 Classic humbuckers give you amazing tonal versatility, power, and sustain

Gibson Custom's Les Paul Ultima is fitted with a pair of PAF-style '57 Classic humbuckers. These pickups sport authentic Alnico II magnets, and are wound with 42-AWG enamel-coated wire - just like the originals. The coils are wax potted to ward off microphonic squeal, making them the perfect pups for your high-gain excesses. Classically routed through independent volume and tone controls, this dynamic duo serves up articulate, warm voicings from the neck position, soaring liquid bridge tones, and a broad range of sweet crunch in between.

Nitrocellulose lacquer finish, for the look of a lightly aged classic

The Gibson Custom Les Paul Ultima wears a gorgeous lightly aged 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 gently aged classic.
