Gibson Les Paul Custom
I had always wanted to own a Gibson Les Paul Custom, and I was looking for an inexpensive one with some special features at Digimart in my spare time. I found a cheap Gibson Les Paul Custom with a lot of parts replaced, and since I had to go nearby, I had a chance to try it on my way home. I was KO'd when I played one chord.
The sales clerk at the store where I bought this Les Paul Custom said that three other people came to play it just today, but they said it was too heavy for them. The low midrange and highs are well balanced, and the body and neck have a great sound. I replaced the PU with an EMG60/81, which has a tighter low end and is more responsive than the EMG. The low end is tighter and the response is slower, but it has a dense and tight sound.

The store had replaced it with a new one, apparently because it was falling apart.
