Electric Guitar

In addition to the Les Paul Standard, the Custom is the most famous Gibson from the Les Paul series. The early Customs had a mahogany body but with no maple top, but the latest version is equipped with the now typical for the Standard maple top, which has a crisper (also more modern) sound as a result. This is best transferred via the pickup selection (on the neck of the relatively clean 490), to the the powerful 498.

Nothing has changed on the classic black outfit of the Custom, with all the familiar gold and elaborate bindings.

Amazing sound and playability, but disappointing finish.

The finishing job on this guitar is far from satisfactory. There are issues with it all over the place. Just to name a few: on the neck binding, all around where neck meets body, and black is missing altogether where the neck pickup and fretboard meet (which up close is quite ugly). At this price level, I would expect much better from Gibson. I used to own a 2001 Les Paul Studio which had no such issues at all, so for a Custom to have them caught me completely by surprise.

Having said all that, I simply couldn't bring myself to return it. The setup was damn perfect straight out of the case, and the guitar feels silky smooth and gorgeous to play. And the more I play it, the more the sound and sustain on this thing just blow my mind. In short, too good to return, and I didn't care to risk sacrificing the amazing sound and playability for a nicer finish. After all, you're supposed to play the thing, not look at it.

As always, customer support at Thomann was excellent, as was the pricing in comparison to other stores.

This has to be the final piece of a small collection that ticks all the boxes. Stunning finish, having reset the action from the factory set up I now have a slick fast action, plugged into a Marshall jvm and pow! This black beauty sings its heart out.the sustain and tone is as good as they come. As a blues rock player, the different levels of attack is really good, rolling back the volume for a sweet laid back whisper then winding back up for for that lovely cry, it's damn good. Thomann are still the best selling price around. If you are serious about les Paul you have to have one of these, wait another week or month and spend your money on a great investment, you won't be disappointed. Too many fakes around for secondhand purchase so beware! Even the documents are fake and just because it's old doesn't always mean it's good.
Trust your ears, if plays good and sounds good then it is good, exactly what I have found with this purchase.
Rock on guys!
Thank Thomason for a great delivery and service
