Here is without equal in a great body guitar The Incomparable Gibson Les Paul Custom, Gibson catalog, circa mid-Nineteen Fifties. Nowadays’s Gibson Les Paul Custom is in line with the model from the mid-Nineteen Fifties, however with a number of up to date appointments.
The body is crafted with a hand-carved maple most sensible, which is suited for a body produced from a great piece of mahogany with strategically routed holes to minimize the load of the guitar, leading to a Gibson Les Paul Custom with enhanced acoustic qualities and improved resonance.
The 24 ¾-inch scale duration neck may be produced from one forged piece of mahogany then crowned by a 22-fret Richlite® fingerboard outfitted with pearl block inlays and given Gibson’s traditional rounded profile.
The pickups are Gibson’s 490R within the neck position, which provides the tonal characteristics of the unique PAFs, and the 498T within the bridge position, which swaps the 490R’s Alnico II magnet for an Alnico V, thus making it quite warmer with emphasis on mid-ranges and highs.
Different appointments come with Gibson’s mythical Nashville Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, metal tulip tuners, multi-ply white and black binding on each the highest and back, gold hardware and a 1 eleven/sixteen” nut width.
