Gibson Les Paul Custom Reviews
Love everything about the look and feel. For the price I got it for, it was absolutely perfect and worth the money. I would never pay the $3,999 price tag that usually comes with these as no guitar is worth that kind of money. Being that I got it for a fair price, I will say it was well worth it. Having played many Les Pauls in the past, thi... [read more on Audiofanzine]tonmazz rated this unit on 2012-08-08.
This guitar is the classiest solidbody guitar ever made, period. I don't think it's possible to compete in the solidbody realm in terms of sheer elegance mixed with simplistic design - this is a perfect guitar. Anyone that hasn't tried one out yet is committing a grave personal offense to themselves! [read more on Audiofanzine]heads on fire rated this unit on 2011-12-28.
These are some of my favorite Gibsons due to the extra bite they tend to have. Gibsons can be a bit too thick at times, and the ebony board really helps keep that in check.

All in all I think the Gibson Les Paul Custom is a guitar for the ages and is well worth considering if you want a great Les Paul to compliment a Standard or sound unique and cool on its own. At about $3,800 new they are not cheap, but you can find them quite easily used for about $2,400 without issue. They're great guitars that have a voice tha...

I tried several other styles of Les Pauls and other Gibson models before deciding on the Custom. I believe the ebony fretboard set it apart from the majority of the other models with rosewood fretboards. It adds a special ?snap? to the guitar?s tone. The Custom?s neck also felt the best in my hands. While $2500 is a lot of money for a guitar, th... [read more on Audiofanzine]Everlone rated this unit on 2011-06-22.
If you're searching for a Les Paul Custom, be sure to try a bunch out in your local music store. The quality control on Gibson guitars can be really iffy. The biggest things to look for would be tuning stability and fretwork. Pay particular attention to fretwork as that's what can really make or break a guitar. If you're looking for a metal ...

This is a fine instrumnent for anyone. I was going through guitar after guitar until I came across this one. It is still my primary electric instrument, & I got the thing for a song! However, due to its price in today's market, this is not a guitar for just anyone, serious musicians only. [read more on Audiofanzine]MSC rated this unit on 2003-05-04.
