What we say:
Regarded by many as one of the most wonderful electric guitars ever made, Gibson's Les Paul Custom in Ebony with Gold Hardware is a huge sounding beauty that looks and feels exquisite.
Triple binding on the top, bound back, larger headstock with a split-diamond pearl inlay, gold hardware...The Les Paul Custom is just unspeakably cool. The flat 12" radius fretboard makes playing and bending notes a breeze and the 490n and 498t pickups deliver the grunt and sustain that sets the Custom apart from even its other Gibson Les Paul stablemates.This Ebony-finished beauty is made of solid mahogany with a two piece maple top. There are a few strategic weight relief holes drilled into the mahogany before the top goes on but in our experience it doesn't affect that gorgeously thick tone at all. The neck has medium jumbo frets and luxuriously large pearl block inlays. Grover tuners keep things in check and 500k pots in the controls allow for some real burn as well as some welcome top end.
The playability is just so easy and encouraging: you find yourself looking at your watch and 45 minutes have passed without you even noticing, such is the easy pleasure of playing this guitar. The 24.75" scale length certainly plays its part, as does the pitch of the the neck and headstock: it's specifically designed to be an absolute dreamboat to play.
For many guitarists, a Les Paul Custom is the Zenith of guitars and the Ebony finished model the greatest of those. As Gibson themselves say, it is simply 'incomparable'. If people listen with their eyes, this will make them stop mid-step and pay you their full attention.
