I got a pretty nice deal on this Les Paul Custom. I think i finally found a les paul that suits me. The previous owned swapped out all the gold hardware for silver including a mirror pick guard for the john sykes effect. The hardware is actually much shinier in person! The weight is balanced, not too heavy not too light. The neck shape is similar to my prs wide thin although not quite as wide. I love it!

Why hello, fellow Les Paul Custom brother! You have a good eye, sir. It is indeed a 91' Les Paul custom 57' BB reissue. The body is all mahogany, and possibly non weight relieved. The pickups are the original 57 classics that came stock with the guitar. Smooth output with "haunting mids" yes yes.

Is there a secret initiative on the board to create massive amounts of LP Custom envy?

The short answer is yes. I think Thom, tex, and i should all create a LP custom compilation video.

I'd love to have an LP custom. I haven't found the one that is perfect for me yet that would justify the price tag. This looks the business tho!!

Hopefully one day I'll find a great one for a deal.

The Les Paul custom club does not discriminate based on brand. There is no bigotry here. Welcome to the brotherhood.
