I just scored a killer Lester. She’s a 2007 Les Paul Custom Classic Silverburst. She was one of the GOTW series, number 16. I’m loving this guitar! One of the most resonant guitars I’ve had the pleasure of playing.
Anyone else have any experience with a Custom Classic? I’m really stoked on the Custom/Standard hybrid. Ialso love the 57 Classic pups. I find them to be thick and articulate.

I used to have a 2007 black/gold Classic Custom. Very cool guitar (wish I hadn’t traded it away). Congrats & HNGD!

Thanx! I bought this on a whim. I was looking through eBay, and saw this up for auction, with no reserve. There wasn’t much action on it. About 5 seconds before auction was over I put in a bid, and now she’s mine.
I don’t plan on selling her, but if I ever do... I got her for a steal, and should be able to make a couple bucks. Win, win.

DIBS! And congrats! These showed up on my radar after a recent episode of Troglys

Beauty! Enjoy it!
What’s the neck profile on these?
60’s slim taper. A lot of guys don’t like these, but they’re my preference! Fingerboard is ebony and she has a Nashville bridge. I wish it was an ABR-1, that’s what’s in my ‘96 Classic, but no biggie.

The original 2007 Custom Classics are fantastic guitars. Yours is a beauty. There are three in the series: Antique Ebony (most common--in both P-90 and humbucker versions with exposed coils), Silverburst (rarer), and Antique White (very rare). These are real gems--play the hell out of it!
