Gibson Custom Shop 2014 specs Class 5 Les Paul  CSLPSTDLMBNH 

The Class 5 Les Paul bridges the gap between the historic and the modern masterpiece. Looking at its beautiful historically carved figured maple top amd classic Les Paul styling, its hard not to get drawn in by its looks, however an instrument is designed to be played, and the Class 5 doesn’t dissapoint.

Loaded with Custom Buckers tuned to the best sound relative to their position, they compliment the thick and weighty mahogany body for a rich and full sound. To ensure you dont collapse at the end of a long gig, the mahogany body has been weight relieved with a special process that doesn’t affect the rich tone you expect from a dense tonewood. The Class 5 also feels great to play, featuring a 60’s profile neck with pearl inlaid rosewood fingerboard.
