A Stunning Re-Creation of a Hugely Popular Les Paul Custom
The choice of world-beating rock stars like Lindsey Buckingham and Randy Rhoads, the evolution of the Les Paul Custom that arrived in 1974 is an all-time classic. The 1974 Les Paul Custom Reissue brings it back in intricate detail, including the period-correct three-piece maple top and solid mahogany back with ½-inch slotted weight relief, period-correct plastics and hardware, and two Alnico Super 74 humbucking pickups. Block markers, ebony fingerboard, split-diamond inlay on a multi-ply bound headstock–it's all there, in your choice of Classic Vintage White, Ebony, or Wine Red VOS finish.
