57 Les Paul Custom
Elegance and Excellence Embodied

The ’57 “Black Beauty” Les Paul Custom is perhaps the most beautiful guitar ever made, revered both for its undeniable upscale aesthetic and its versatile sound. The dark, dense Ebony fingerboard produces clarity and sustain while the single-piece solid Mahogany body adds a warmth and mid-range unlike any other Les Paul. 2018 marks the first time the Historic ’57 Les Paul Custom model includes all “True Historic” plastics and parts, chemically and structurally re-engineered from vintage examples. Available with two or three pickup configurations in Gloss or VOS (vintage patina, shown) finishes. Left-handed models available as well.
