Gibson this morning released full specs on its latest Limited Edition Guitar Of The Week instrument, and while I’m not generally a big fan of gold hardware I’d have to say that the Les Paul Classic Custom with dual P-90s is one of the finer looking guitars to come out of this whole series.
Apparently built around Gibson’s vintage-style Les Paul Classic Antique line, this latest LP was very obviously inspired by the ever-popular (and now exceedingly hard to get your hands on,) classic Black Beauty.
Stand-out features are to include a pair of P-90 pickups, gold binding across the board (body, neck and headstock,) gold hardware, what appears to be a gold MOP holly headstock inlay, gold Gibson logo inlay, and an antique ebony finish.
Other specs include a mahogany body with maple top, mahogany 1960’s slim-taper neck (24 3/4“ scale length,) ebony fretboard with 22 frets, trapezoid inlays, dual volume & tone controls, gold Grover keystone tuners, black speed knobs, and a gold stopbar tailpiece and tune-o-matic bridge.
The Les Paul Classic Custom with Dual P-90s will be available in a limited run of 400 units.
