The True Historic Series from Gibson Custom feature replica-level detail, from plastics, recreated based on lab analysis of original 50's parts, to double-carved top and neck profiles and thin, hand-sanded finishes, they are the most complete, accurate, and refined recreations of the guitars that form the mid-century legend of Gibson's solid body range. While Gibson's other solid body guitars enjoyed various levels of success, the infamous "Tuxedo" look of the Les Paul Custom has enjoyed a long reign as the epitome of high-style, tone, and playability. Today's True Historic 1957 Les Paul Custom is a detailed recreation, true to every aspect of the original's stylish looks, legendary tone, and distinct "fretless wonder" playability.
