The three-pickup 1957 Les Paul Custom, with its refined “tuxedo” looks, gold hardware and smooth, “fretless wonder” playability, was the flagship of Gibson’s mid-century run of legendary instruments.

This True Historic Series recreation gets it all right, from the double-carved top and neck to the superbly thin, hand-sanded nitrocellulose lacquer finish, including plastics made to the original formulas, recreated through exhaustive laboratory analysis of vintage pieces. You will never come closer to an original than this meticulous Gibson Custom version.
