Instrument Categories: , , ,

The spectacular Gibson Les Paul Custom 25 Limited Edition was built during 2007 and into 2008 for a run of 100 guitars – featuring highest grade flamed Maple top, colour matched Maple pickguard and trim rings, and gold plating!

The Les Paul Custom 25 starts from the classic Les Paul Custom – a Mahogany slab body with a carved, highly figured Flame Maple cap, paired with a five-piece neck – three layers of Flame Maple separated by a thin Walnut layer. The bound fingerboard is Ebony, with a custom Mother of Pearl inlay set. The head plate is also flame Maple, finished in Sunburst, with a Mother of Pearl logo and a brass truss rod cover engraved with ‘Les Paul “25”‘.

The finish is a traditional Gibson Cherry Sunburst, which extends to the head plate.

A Brass nut is installed, and the frets are medium jumbo. Hardware is gold plated, starting with Grover Roto-Matics. A tune-o-matic bridge and TP-6 Fine Tuning Tailpiece are at the body, and pickups are Gibson ’57 Classic humbuckers. Wiring is almost standard Gibson except that a coil tap switch is located on the top by the neck volume control.

This guitar has been played but is in very good, clean condition. There is a bit of finish oxidization on the back where it would have rested against the player. Otherwise, rret and finish wear are negligible.

The original Gibson hard shell case is included.

From Gibson on the limited edition Les Paul Custom 25:

“The Limited Edition Custom Les Paul 25 from the Gibson Custom Shop has a combination of features you won’t find in any standard issue electric guitar. Hand-picked flame maple forms the top. The ebony fretboard has a custom split block inlay–each block alternates between double and single split lines. Somehow, it makes this guitar look fast! Look closely and you’ll discover another rarity: the pickups have real wooden mounting rings and the 25 guitar also sports a wooden pickguard. Combined with the Gibson Custom Shop’s peerless craftsmanship, this is an Les Paul Guitar that qualifies as a museum piece in the luthier’s hall of fame.

You’ll find everything you love about the Les Paul in this electric guitar: the resonant, mahogany body and set, C-shaped mahogany neck, killer ’57 Classic humbucker pickups at both the bridge and neck and the sweet, glowing lacquer finish and gold hardware. What you won’t find is very many of these. This Custom 25 is being limited to a run of just 100 guitars!”
