There’s no more fitting way to celebrate the pantheon of rock and roll than with a custom rendition of a truly classic Les Paul. Gibson Custom and the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, team up once again to follow up 2013’s sold out edition and bring you the 2014 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Les Paul Custom, produced in a limited run of 15 guitars.
This striking tribute to rock and roll takes the hallowed form of the timeless ’50s Custom Les Paul, with acrylic block inlays in an ebony fingerboard selected from an ever-dwindling supply, multi-ply body binding, and headstock with multi-ply binding. What’s more, the presentation is made all the more “custom” for this celebration edition thanks to several exclusive features: an aged Antique Pelham Blue finish (which accurately mirrors the vintage lacquer’s “greening” after exposure to light over several decades), the Hall’s pyramid logo inlaid on the headstock, “The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame” etched in the 12th-fret inlay, and a commemorative engraved silver badge in place of the switch cover on the back (a spare plastic switch cover is included in the case).
From its carved hard-maple top and select one-piece mahogany back, to its quarter-sawn mahogany neck with comfortable ’50s profile, to the PAF-certified tone delivered by its Custombucker pickups, the 2014 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Les Paul Custom is a tour de force of hand craftsmanship that makes it as desirable a showpiece for the player as it is for the collector. Reserve yours now exclusively through the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. With only 15 being made this year, they’re guaranteed to go fast.
A one-piece mahogany body with carved maple top guarantee time-tested Les Paul tone.
Custombuckers are made in the image of the revered PAF, with Alnico III magnets and mismatched coils for tonal complexity.
Antique Pelham Blue finish is aged to a luscious green, representing authentic yellowing of vintage lacquer.
Aged ’50s style multi-ply body binding accompanies a commemorative 12th fret inlay engraving and silver switch-cover badge.
Traditional Custom headstock carries R&RHoF “pyramid” logo and commemorative truss-rod cover.
Limited run of 15 guitars, each including tri-fold Certificate of Authenticity and R&RHoF logo dust cover.
