This pre-owned 1998 Gibson Les Paul Custom in Wine Red is a rock machine that oozes class and tone. The classic combination of a Maple top and a Mahogany body and neck is pairing that is almost as old as Rock ’n Roll itself. The 490R neck pickup is thick but articulate, while the 498T bridge pickup is a bit hotter, perfect for blues and classic rock leads. The C neck, Ebony fretboard, 12” radius, and 1 11/16” nut width making this Gibson Les Paul comfortable and fast to play. It’s not light, but its weight is reflected in its bold, thick tone and sustain. The combination of its Wine Red finish and gold hardware give this Gibson Les Paul Custom a sophisticated aesthetic compliment to its classic tone.
