The Gibson Custom 1957 Les Paul, Silver Mist Poly is a reissue of the 1957 model Les Paul, made with incredible accuracy.
With many reissues of Les Paul models from various decades, completely accurate recreations of the 1950s models were difficult to achieve as the original specifications had been lost. Having now located enough examples to accurately recreate the 1957 model, Gibson Custom have made this beautiful 1957 Les Paul to the Vintage Original Specification.
The Gibson Custom 1957 Les Paul has an all solid mahogany body with a stunning maple top. When it comes to eras of Les Paul guitars, one of the most defining features is the neck. The Custom 1957 Les Paul has a mahogany neck in an early 1950s profile, and, just like the original '57 model, is topped by a rosewood fingerboard.
The Custom 1957 Les Paul is equipped with a pair of BurstBucker pickups, which are the closest representation of Gibson's original Patent-Applied-For pickups, while also providing the improved frequency response found in modern humbuckers. The Custom '57 LP has the classic Les Paul controls, with each pickup having dedicated volume and tone controls, as well as a 3-way pickup selector switch.
The representation of this guitar is accurate right down to its hardware. An authentic ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge is paired with a traditional Gibson stopbar tailpiece, while there are also original design CTS pots and Bumblebee capacitors.
The Gibson Custom 1957 Les Paul is finished in a Silver Mist Poly and comes with a Gibson Custom hardcase and a certificate of authenticity.
