    From what I was told, and having not read the other responses...

    My 2015 True Historic '57, is referred to as the "Black Beauty," in literature I've seen from Gibson.

    And yeah... why is this in the Historic section? Shouldn't we get to enjoy in the main forum?

    Well, I guess that would depend on what you consider "the main forum" to actually be! :420: There are some who feel that the only REAL Les Pauls are the vintage/historic ones! :p

    Just My $.02 & Likely Due For A Discount!

    I started the thread in the main Gibson forum, but mods moved to this section. No idea why. Hope to not disturb the Historic guys....;) :)

    Hard to beat a Black Custom in my estimation.

    Now please pick it up off the ground.

    Don’t worry. Some people picked up on the sarcasm.

    Those do not look like Fretless Wonder frets, at least as far as the crowning is concerned. They look truly excellent to me -- better than the FWs, in fact -- because they have the width but also what looks to be a sufficiently rounded profile so as to be both fast and clean. If it plays as well as it looks like it will... stand back! That is a really complete, perfect design -- what a combination of materials, design, and execution. There's plenty I dislike about Gibson, but when they get it together, they can do great things. For a ton of money, but great things nonetheless.

    Your pickup height can change the tone character in those ways too, so any variables could be related to height and pole piece height.

    No no, they are setup the same, but I've found the motive of the difference; it's both caps and pots.

    I recently adjusted my rhythm Pup pole pieces and height and was pleasantly surprised by its versatility of sound.

    Sorry, can't post pictures, keep getting error code after uploading finished "security error occurred".
