    Is that a Brazillian? I might have missed something.

    I think it's Richlite. They regularly use it on their modern Custom-style guitars. You could spec ebony though.

    That’s the best looking Les Paul I’ve seen in a long time. It’s the kind of guitar that becomes legendary. Post more pics so I can just stare at it.

    Wait, I didn't think Gibson had put out any good guitars since Norlin...

    Beautiful guitars.

    No, it's just from the Custom Shop twitter account that somebody linked to. I had no idea they were finally making guitars to order. Now, to rob a bank... - I mean, dive into honest work like a good citizen!

    Interesting. I was mainly referring to the Made 2 Measure program, which has been around for a few years at least. Their Facebook picture feed is full of one-off custom-made models going back to 2014. I would assume they always did some one-offs for artists anyway, maybe also for customers? Interesting question..

    Man, 2014 is already four years ago, huh? It's my understanding that customers could not order one-offs before this program. IDK if artists even could, without being asked to make a signature model.
