Gibson Custom Historic 1957 Les Paul Product Overview by GAK

As stunning now as it was in 1957! After a couple of years as a Goldtop the groundbreaking Les Paul guitar got the 'Tuxedo' treatment! Aside from the multiple bindings and general upscale aesthetic there were some structural changes that gave the new 'Custom' its own unique voice. Firstly the body lost its Maple cap, the new Custom had a body carved entirely from a single piece of solid Mahogany giving a warmth and midrange unlike any other. And the Mahogany neck had a new fingerboard, this time a single piece of black Ebony giving a clarity and sustain that complements the choice of body perfectly. No coincidence of course, Ted McCarty and his tried and tested many wood combinations.

So the 2018 spec Historic '57 'Black Beauty' Les Paul Custom benefits from the ongoing refinement at the Nashville Custom Shop. For instance the adhesives used on the 2018 Historic guitars are back to the old Hot Hide glues, despite it being smelly and much more difficult to work with! And on the other end of the spectrum detailed modern chemical analysis of the plastics used in the original instruments has led to the development of new, far more authentic, reissue parts.

So the Gibson Custom 2018 spec Historic '57 Les Paul Custom is a truly remarkable guitar! Available with either a choice of nitrocellulose lacquer finishes- either a shiny gloss or a vintage patina VOS and a choice between two or three pickup versions.
