This guitar has a beautiful finish; it’s covered in a Dark Tobacco Burst. It’s built with a mahogany back and a maple finish on the front. This guitar has two Seymour Duncan Alnico Pro II humbucker pickups and an exclusive feature not found on typical Les Paul’s a Fishman Powerbridge pickup. The guitar has a small toggle switch by the Volume and Tone Knobs that give the guitar an acoustic tone to it, if you want it. I have been playing this guitar for 2 years now and the sound is just killer. It's great for those classic rock leads and just gets the job done. It just needs to come with a Top Hat and then your set.

I picked this guitar up for my birthday with the help of family of course. I went to a local Music shop that special orders Gibson Customs and I paid about $3,750 for this one. I mostly fell in love with this guitar because the neck is a 59 les Paul neck and it just feels good to me. I love the color on this guitar it just stands out to me.

This guitar has a great raw sound to it, the tone is just excellent and the Fishman Powerbridge pickup just makes the guitar stand out. It's easy for when you’re doing a live gig and you need an acoustic sound, there is no need to switch guitars, just flip the switch and this guitar turns into a acoustic. The color of this guitar is just great; I always get great remarks about its color.

If I was to find fault in this guitar it would be some minor details, which could have been just in my case. The intonation was way off for the Low E string to the point where i had to take it to somewhere to get it adjusted. Also I noticed that the 'pointer' next to the Volume knobs and Tone knobs where kind of bent and very sharp, so if you by chance over shoot trying to adjust your volume you get this sharp pain in your finger that is not very pleasant during a gig.

As far as the guitar in a whole it is built like a typical Gibson! Very sturdy and well built. Besides the Intonation and Volume/Tone 'pointers' this guitar is practically perfect. Everything feels smooth and is just great. But if you’re paying a large amount of money then it should be.

If you’re a big Slash fan then this guitar will not disappoint you. As for practically any Gibson Custom signature series you are probably paying a lot for the name but regardless this guitar is great and has yet failed to impress me. Great Sound, Great Look, Great Feel.
