Gibson 's Black Beauty

In 1952, when Lester Polsfuss alias Les Paul was awarded the most successful Gibson Signature Instrument electric guitar in the history of electric guitar in the 1950s, he wanted a "Tuxedo Guitar " that combined the simple black elegance of a suit with optical finesse. Soon after, the mahogany top Les Paul Custom and Super 400 Archtop model Split Diamond inlay in the headstock veneer became one of the most popular instruments of the then still very young rock scene. As part of the True Historic series, he Gibson Nashville Custom Shop follows in the footsteps of the history of the creation of Black Beauty and recreates the classic as authentically as never before.
