Hey guys, since my last login some time ago, I picked up a 2012 Gibson Les Paul Classic Custom. Figured I'd share it with you guys, and see who else has one of these? In 2012 the USA factory, rather than the Custom Shop, released some Classic Customs. The main difference between these and the Customs is a rosewood fretboard and there isn't any binding on the back of the body. They also came with chrome hardware. All else appearance wise is like a Custom. Binding on neck, binding with purfling on headstock, block inlays, split diamond on the headstock, and binding/purfling on front of body. These are great guitars, and play just like any Custom I've played. They sold for $3,000 new, which is a great deal for a Les Paul Custom in my opinion. Here are some pics I took of mine for my instagram. Even took it to Randy Rhoads' grave site.
