Some guitars might need a long introduction, with a build up that can place them on a pedestal of excellence – Yet a Gibson Les Paul Custom needs no introduction – You almost know that it does what it says on the tin – So whilst we know the make and model, plus effectively how it will play and perform, I need to update you with specific information regarding this 1976 model with a wine red finish – So in no particular order, then here goes :-

I’ve played this LP Custom through my usual demo amp and tried it through a clean amp setting, subtle gain and  hi-gain amp settings – Which ever option you choose, this Custom is at home – Not surprising it works well on a clean amp setting, as it is almost as though it was originally designed to work in a nice combo, with you wearing a tux, in a dance band – No shortage of character for chilled out jazz/blues styles, with plenty of clarity for funky rhythm chops, if and when required – Maybe somewhat of a good accident when a Les Paul Custom first met the over drive channel on an amp – From bone crunching riffs, to scorching hot lead breaks, from the BB King side of blues to shred metal and an LP Custom is happy doing its fair share of work – Granted many speed players, who love an LP Custom, have changed pick-ups to something hotter, including EMG’s, but that will always be a matter of need and taste – From Bowie to the Manics, from Fleetwood Mac with Mr Buckingham to Zakk Wylde, from Mick Jones to Randy Rhodes and there is no shortage of famous players who’ve chosen an LP Custom to handle the lions share of work – All are rock or pop based players, yet they are all different and utilise the same guitar for a different tonal character, so buy and explore the wonders of a nice LP Custom that has plenty of character

Every guitar in stock at Guitars4You has been personally selected, inspected and approved by me, with particular attention paid to the set-up and playing performance – Every sale, phone call, mail order transaction or e-mail is handled my me – Mark Hopkin, the owner, Managing Director, cleaner and coffee maker (Jo, my wife helps with the coffee) – A journey, now in excess of 40 years, has fuelled my knowledge, experience, love, devotion and passion for exceptionally fine guitars – This reflects in every aspect of our business.

I have no desire to run an Amazon style 'click to buy' guitar shop, that lacks any soul or passion, or indeed to fill a showroom with a selection of dirty, shop soiled or dusty guitars that are in need of a set-up.
