Gibson is the king of the guitar world, so to speak, having produced many famous instruments.

This model is a reproduction of the Les Paul Custom made in 1968, which was reproduced in the style of the original Les Paul after the model change to the SG in 1961.
It is a gem made by Custom Shop, the highest grade of Gibson.

Usually, Les Paul Custom is painted in a fill color, but this one has a beautiful flame maple body top.

The body top is made of beautiful flame maple and painted in see-through natural color, which gives the guitar an exquisite look that varies depending on the angle you look at it from.

The body back and neck are made of mahogany, and the fingerboard is made of ebony, which is now a rare material.

The front pickup is a Gibson 57 Classic, which reproduces the Les Paul sound of '57.
The front pickup is a Gibson 57 Classic, a replica of the humbucking pickup developed by Seth Lover, known as the PAF, which has been a longtime seller of Gibson's. The rear pickup is a Gibson Dirty Dirty pickup, a replica of the PAF.

The rear pickups have been replaced with Gibson Dirty Fingers.
It uses ceramic magnets and is characterized by long sustain and good distortion ride.
This model is very powerful with high output among Gibson's pickups.

The front position has a vintage-like sweet and fat sound, while the rear position has a hard rock sound.

This is one of Gibson's finest handmade guitars, made with the finest woods of the Custom Shop class, and you can feel the soul of the craftsmen who made it.
