I'm addicted to my LP Custom and I just can never get tired of it. This model is a 2011 I believe. It's been my number one since I got it 3 years ago. Just an awesome guitar all around. Neck is perfect. Action isn't too low or too high. Pick-ups are high output and have a nice warm feeling. I want another Custom at some point. I wish they still made the Custom Lite.

Been playing it for a good 2 hours a day since the pandemic. Working from home gives me extra time for toys! :]

Well the guitar that got me into loving all things guitar looks a lot like yours... Mick Ronson’s stripped ‘68. Ok, no flame ( on the original, ...this is a CS edition)
But wow , did a natural LPC make an impression in 1972 to a 14yr old !!

Not sure on the weight, but I think it's pretty light for a Custom. I feel they're typically thought of as being on the heavier side. Maybe because of the double binding? My old R8 felt much heavier.

And yeah I made a subtle rant post about the Custom Lites and the current market for them. I bought a 2013 model in excellent condition 4 years ago for $1600 - $1700 something. I see them on Reverb now for around $2000 - $2500. Might as well just get another Custom. The Custom is CS made and comes with an ebony board. You can get a real nice used one for around $2700, maybe lower. You could also get a vintage one for around that price.
I own a Custom Lite. Mine was used - paid $850- and it was pristine. They are ‘low end’ for production Gibson. Those reverb prices are speculation. At the end of their run, guitar shops were blowing them out.

OP. Looks beautiful and you seem to be the perfect judge for it!
All the others are gorgeous, too.
The custom is the only one with that headstock inlay?

Love it! Just bought my first Les Paul, 2005 standard faded. Want a 68 custom reissue in tri burst, but didn't have enough scratch.

Those were some really good years for insane tops. This is my 2012 Traditional.
