Les Paul Custom Axcess Floyd
High Craft, Made to Play
$5,299
The Les Paul Custom Axcess Floyd from Gibson Custom combines the modern playability, light weight and tone of Gibson’s popular Axcess range, dressed up in style inspired by the Les Paul Custom of “fretless wonder” lineage. Drenched in modernized playability and tone features, the Les Paul Axcess Custom lives to serve those who value comfort, speed, and a slightly more aggressive version of Gibson’s signature humbucker tone.

Players from Alex Lifeson of Rush, to Tommy Shaw of Styx, to Dave Amato of REO Speedwagon rely on the Axcess as an everyday player capable of delivering on their audiences’ high expectations of tone, while providing a lightweight, contoured-for-comfort and stage-ready guitar that stands up to the rigors of the road.
