Jacques A., 09.10.2016
It was a long time ago that I was looking at the Gibson Les Paul Custom and I took the plunge with this Cobra Burst which looks like the Black Beauty but whose maple table shows the veins of the wood.
Once received the impression did not decline. The finish is superb. The nitrocellulose varnish and the golden fittings highlight the instrument without being too obvious. The guitar has arrived well set, and directly playable with the original codes (10-46) by taking it out of its box. The wood a little moved a day or two, but nothing abnormal. After a week the guitar was stabilized.
Side sound, it is a Les Paul, no doubt about it. The sound is "thick" but does not lack clarity in the treble when the micro bridge is switched on. Given the output level of the microphones, the settings are easy to get and the overdrive on a Fender Tweed Deluxe comes very quickly. No gadget superfluous, but an effective instrument. No problem of keeping in agreement, the nut is well worked. The frets are wide and very low allowing a very low action and speed of play, perhaps a little to the detriment of expression for those who like high frets. The key is in richlite (so synthetic) because apparently the ebony is no longer used even on the high end. But in reality, given the surface of the nacre (1/4 of the surface of the handle), the hardness of the richlite is perhaps more homogeneous than constantly passing from mother-of-pearl to ebony according to the notes.
I expected a guitar rather heavy, but at 3.9 Kg in fact it is hardly more than my strats that revolve around 3.7 Kg.
Detail a little disappointing: I took a look at the electronics and I was nevertheless surprised by the rather coarse side of the wiring. If the potentiometers (with the engraved cover Gibson) are of good size, the capacitors on the other hand are small ceramic models cheap (I expected at least to "orange drop"). We do not expect this on an instrument of this price and labeled "custom shop". But everyone does not necessarily want to look inside and his side there is nothing to reproach the instrument.
When you buy an instrument like this one always buys a little dream. I do not regret my choice.
