2022 Gibson Les Paul Custom

2022 Gibson Les Paul Custom

First of all, PLEASE WATCH MY WELL DETAILED, 4K, LONG REVIEW / DEMO VIDEO about this beauty: https://youtu.be/6nbKhFllAC0

First of all let’s start with a bit of history before I go into details about this guitar: The Gibson Les Paul first appeared in 1952 with a mahogany body, mahogany neck, rosewood fretboard and two P90 single coil pickups. In late 1953, a more luxurious version was introduced, most likely at the specific request of Les Paul himself, as he wanted a more luxurious and classy looking guitar. He asked for a black guitar as he wanted it to “look like a tuxedo”. The iconic Les Paul Custom was born…

Nicknamed the “Black Beauty”, the guitar had gold-plated hardware, a mahogany body and neck, mother of pearl block markers inlays in the fretboard. The “Split Diamond” inlay on the headstock was taken from the carved archtop Super 400, which was the top of the Gibson line. The frets were low and flat for maximum speed, as opposed to the usual medium jumbo frets found on other Les Pauls. As a result, the guitar soon was given the nickname “The Fretless Wonder”. In mid-1957, Gibson began to equip the Les Paul Custom with the new PAF (Patent Applied For) pickup designed by Seth Lover…

Anyway, enough of the history lesson…this is a wonderful guitar! It’s really classy, luxurious looking with the black finish and gold hardware…also the TRIPLE binding makes the contour amazing!

This is a 2022 built VERY NEW, 70th Anniversary (collectible) guitar!  You can’t find any issues at all. Perfect finish, perfect sound and playability (just check my video with it)

The action is very low, it’s really super easy and smooth to play everywhere on the neck.

And the sound? That is HUGE! Have a look at my demo! The sound is massive! So warm, so sweet!!!! Yes I love it so much!!!! Big sustain as well as you can imagine from a top end, Custom Shop made Les Paul!

These “Customs” are amazing guitars, these are built with none chambered, non weight relieved mahogany body, one piece mahogany neck…even from Mother-of-pearl it has triple amount….and it’s REAL Mother-of-pearl not celluloid plastic than on the Standards and cheaper models….

It’s in ABSOLUTE MINT condition (just take a look at the pictures and the video!), no buckle rash, dings, dents or chips.  It’s got a professional set-up so it plays beautifully. The guitar is totally original, only a few years old, comes with its original hard case (in MINT condition) and certificate etc…

This model sells new for £4700. This one is mint, nearly zero use, for much less.
