« Super fat and organic »

The Gibson Custom Shop Historic 1957 is a replica of the original guitar made back in 1957. The guitar has a mahogany body with a maple top, mahogany neck with a rosewood fretboard, Tune-o-matic bridge, 22 frets, block/trapezoid inlays, a pickguard, two humbucker pickups, two volumes, two tones and a three way switch.

UTILIZATION

This is the Les Paul that most of us know and love. It has the familiar tune-o-matic bridge, and it has humbuckers in it. This year is probably my favorite just because it solidified what Gibson Les Paul really is. The neck on this thing was pretty chunky, so if you're not a fan of thick necks, stay away. The upper heel access is the same as any other Gibson out there. The fretwork was really good on this. The frets were properly crowned, and it had some nice binding nubs going on. The nut was also properly cut on this model.

SOUNDS

This is basically what the Les Paul should sound like. It's got this awesomely fat and thick PAF tone going on. The bridge has just enough bite to cut through, but it's super thick and vintage sounding. The PAF is extremely clear and clean, which I love. The neck pickup was especially cool. It had some bite to it, which I generally am not a fan of, but the vintage vibe was just oozing out of this guitar. I'm more of a metal player, but this guitar really brought out some of the best playing in me.

OVERALL OPINION

This is easily my favorite out of the entire lineup of the Historic bunch. It's what solidified the Les Paul design, and it's the guitar we all know and love today. The guitar comes with a premium price, but it's definitely worth it once you realize how much attention was put into this guitar. Definitely go and check this out.
