This is the statement Gibson used on release of this absolute dream of a guitar. The pinnacle of the range the Gibson Les Paul Custom is at its most desirable and collectible in the form of the 'Black Beauty'.  And what a Beauty this is..

True Historic is the segment of guitars that Gibson produced for 2 short years only and was their finest attempt ever at faithfully recreating the exact specs, tone, finish and feel of the original collectors grade models. Using only the highest quality materials literally no stone was left unturned for the Gibson Custom Shop craftsmen led by Tom Murphy and his team. From the use of aged specialist plastics, painstakingly adapted and modified to reflect the exact look and feel of a guitar transported from 1957, the highest grade tone woods possible (although hugely resonant and powerful this guitar feels 'light' compared to some of the lesser Custom Shop reissues - do not confuse this with a lack of power or punch however; on the contrary the attack and sustain of the guitar is streets ahead of any of the Gibson Custom Shop Customs we've had the pleasure of having at our store.

Gibson quoted again:
' Here we have The most desirable Les Paul Custom ever captured with unprecedented accuracy for the 2016 True Historic Series, with wet-sanded nitro finish, double-carved and hand-sanded top and neck, rolled binding and more.
