Me want, with black binding that makes the guitar better. Not to mention ebony!

The seller said that Gibson told him they were intended for the Canadian market originally. The black binding is pretty cool on these! Gibson should do more like this. The only other one I've seen is a video of one on youtube where the guy is unpacking it and it has clearcoat overspray on the first fret right on the fretboard. The video is less than 30 seconds long:

I'd love to get one built like it, but instead of white, it'd be finished in bright green.

I personally LOVE white Les Pauls. Mick Jones of the Clash, Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols, Randy Rhoads of...well everyone knows him!

Here is a video of a BEAUTIFUL 3 pickup white Les Paul Custom:

Nice try, dude - but in case you weren't referring to that Marshall stack: on this planet we call this kind of white "yellow" (or in this case rather: "Lung Cancer White")... ;)

I didn't realize that it was the Rhoads signature! Lucky! I want a Slash Signature Custom, ala She Builds Quick Machines and Estranged, pretty sure it won't happen. But of course we are talking Gibson, who loves to make money off of their Golden Boys, alive or passed.

This is the most gorgeous color I've ever seen on an LP. I am a sucker for a surf green Tele and this is even cooler. You really should sell it to me...

I like the white one, but I still prefer my kerry green R7 more... :)

I do like a White with gold HW over balck myself. Just looks really classy. When I bought my Custom they had a white and a cherryburst...I went with the burst.

You probably aren't into Manic Street Preachers but James from the band uses the white one and I love the band and the man

Same here!

All about him and Steve Jones for me, those guys are why I like White Les Pauls.

Funnily enough James' main 70's Les Paul he likes to use live these days is signed on the back by Steve Jones:

Here it is in action:

Probably my favourite version of that song ever.

This is the only green LPC that's ever really grabbed my attention:

(Of course, I voted for black.)

I'm aware but in Les Paul land people try everything they can to age their white Les Paul Customs to cream or yellow. The LPC and the Marshall stack in the pic are both the Randy Rhoads tribute models :) if you want a pic of the white stack with a truly white Les Paul, I'll snap a pic later of my alpine white LPC with it :)

Since I'm a member of the "black" party I'd actually prefer a pic of a black LPC (nickel hardware please, '68RI or something like that^^) with a '65 Fender Twin Blackface... :cool:

The Steve Jones sig is aged to yellowy too. I think Gibson should just have a yellowy custom color for the regular custom shop models. They would probably sell alot of them.

Get one of each. Or go natural.

Billy Duffy seems to be able to rock the White LPC.

I love white customs, just hate when they age to yellow, that is why i have a black custom, but would much rather have white if it stayed white.
