Made in the USA by GIbson, 2 tone controls , 2 volume controls just like a regular LP, 22 Frets, Ebony Board. 2 Humbuckers, double binding, Grover tuners...
50's Type neck, not too big, not too small, very beefy yet comfortable to play.

The guitar looks gorgeous in all black with gold hardware, a real black beauty!

UTILIZATION

In terms of design this guitar is very nice to play, it is a bit on the heavy side weighting in at 9.5+ pounds.

Very versatile guitar, especially considering I installed single coil mode via a pull pot on the tone control knobs. Also changed the wiring, upgraded electronics, and installed a set of Suhr Aldrich pickups.



SOUNDS

I use it with a Bogner Ecstasy 101B and a Diezel Einstein, it has the typical Les Paul trademark sound, long lasting sustain and a lot of power. The stock pickups were a bit lacking in my opinion, as do most Gibson pickups with the exception of a few. Replaced them and the guitar sounds much better, its a dark guitar in nature so keep that in mind if you are planning on swapping the original pup's.

Can do any music style with ease, especially Rock and Hard Rock and even metal. The Les Paul Custom is a workhorse and a terrific sounding electric guitar with the benefit that it is the nicest looking electric guitar that has ever been produced.

With the addition of the coil tap, it can do classic single coil Fender type sounds with ease for those bluesy moments

Turn down the tone control on the neck pickup and get insane "women tone" lead sounds...



OVERALL OPINION

This guitar will sure turn a few heads around in a club, its such an iconic guitar, you really can't go wrong, as they keep their value through the years.

This guitar will outlive you if you treat it right and give you a liftetime of great Rock N' Roll tones
