Gibson Custom Shop is the pinnacle of craftsmanship, quality, and sound

excellence. Each instrument celebrates Gibson's legacy through accuracy,

authenticity and attention to detail.

With its elegant lines and ebony/pearl/gold aesthetic, the 1957 Les Paul™ Custom is

easily one of the most iconic and beautiful guitars ever made. It features a body

carved out of a single large piece of solid mahogany, unique among Les Paul

models. The resulting dark mid-range tone from the body pairs perfectly with its

bright-sounding solid ebony ngerboard. Altogether, it's the pinnacle of guitar

craftsmanship, design, and tone. Gibson Custom Shop is proud to revive every last

detail of the original "Black Beauty" for this '57 Les Paul Custom Reissue, from the

dimensions and contours to the precise inlay patterns, to the entire ownership

experience. It features Ultra Light Aging by the skilled artisans of the Murphy Lab.

The Murphy Lab Ultra Light Aged nish treatment, paired with lightly aged hardware,

simulates decades of light play wear, giving it the unique character, vibe, and feel of

an original example from the Gibson Golden Era.
