Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to present this 2011 Gibson Les Paul Classic Custom! The votes are in and all accounted for and the verdict is... this LP SLAYS! This really is one mean playing SOB. The neck is super fast, tight and well controlled feeling. I immediately was able to land a bunch of my fastest playing that I know I can't pull off on just any guitar. The tone is terrific too - great for Rock, Blues, Metal and even some Jazz. Everything is dialed in perfectly right now on the set up - the action is set low, there's no buzzing, the intonation is right on, the neck is straight, etc. We'd say that this guitar plays like it's brand new but actually, it probably plays better than that. Classic!

Item Details

This Limited Edition Gibson Classic Custom Les Paul was manufactured in 2011. It's still a baby practically and waiting to be broken in by the right set of hands. The Natural high gloss nitrocellulose finish is breathtaking. A chambered mahogany body is fitted with a carved maple top ensuring the powerful and complex tone we have all come to love from a Les Paul. The pickups have been swapped and replaced with Gibson 496R & 498T humbuckers. The only other replaced parts to note are the Dunlop big strap buttons that have been installed.

This guitar’s resonance and sustain are only further enhanced by the deep-set quarter-sawn mahogany neck with 17-degree back-angled headstock. Optimum playability is ensured by a slim, comfortable neck profile. The Les Paul Classic Custom’s 22-fret fingerboard is made from Baked Maple, a heat-treated hardwood that offers a clear tone and extreme durability, and inlaid with acrylic block markers, enhanced by a mother of pearl Gibson headstock logo and acrylic split-diamond inlay. The Grover kidney bean tuners work with the Tun-o-matic bridge and stop bar tailpiece to make tuning stability and proper intonation a non-issue. This Les Paul comes with a black Gibson hard shell case.

Overall Condition

This 2011 Gibson Classic Custom Les Paul is in excellent condition. This guitars shows only the most minimal signs that it has been played. By that we mean there are a few light pick marks on the pickguard and a very low number of faint finish scratches that can't be seen unless you really go looking for them. There is no buckle rash or anything of the like to worry about. The frets are excellent as well. This guitar has maybe been played for a few hours.

This is a great chance to buy a gently used Gibson Les Paul from a limited edition run. If you are a Les Paul owner already, this will likely become your go-to LP. If you don't own one right now, you may have to tell your other guitars that they're not allowed to get jealous when this one comes home. This is top shelf playability and tone.
