This beauty will give you years of playing enjoyment. The flame maple on this guitar is absolutely incredible with a very high gloss which makes this beauty really shine. The guitar is just sensational in each and every way. Custom binding all around is just the start of the Gibson Les Paul Supreme Electric Guitar's distinctive looks. Feast your eyes on the deluxe pearl-on-ebony fingerboard inlays; gold frets; and an abalone, pearl, and brass globe inlaid on the Gibson Les Paul headstock.
A chambered Les Paul Guitar body takes a load off your shoulder and enhances resonance to aid the 490R and 498T alnico humbuckers in generating miles of smooth sustain. The Les Paul Supreme Electric Guitar includes a Gibson hardshell case. Mahogany neck with ebony fretboard.
Custom binding on top, back, fretboard, and headstock. Abalone, pearl, and brass globe headstock inlay. Tune-o-matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece.
It's a 2012 and absolutely no flaws or issues... I dig the look of it from the headstock logo to the brass hardware to the striped mother-of-pearl inlays. Plus, the AAAA figured maple top and back are simply gorgeous to me. I'm normally attracted to plain top bursts, but that purple figured top and back just ooze tons of mojo to me.I love the thick binding all around. This is a beautiful, artistic guitar. Yeah, I know, I've heard the complaints about the Supreme not having control access panels on the back. I suppose that's a big inconvenience for tweakers who'll want to swap out the stock pickups. Personally though, I have no problem with the 490R and 498T pickups.
They're ballsy and expressive. Plus, the AAA flame back is killer too!
One thing that's important to me with a Les Paul is that it has a 50's-style neck; to be more precise, a'58 or'59 neck, and the Supreme has that style of neck - not the'57's baseball bat neck. The Supreme has all the looks of a classic Les Paul model, but has some features you will never find on an any other Les Paul, that's why it's probably called the Les Paul Supreme.This special guitar is built by Gibson in, of course, Nashville USA. And what a magnificent work they did! The guitar was showed for the first time at the NAMM in 2003, a major show where music manifacturers present their latest products, in Anaheim, California USA, and the instrument was an instant success. The production was originally set on a maximum of 2003 guitars.
The initial limitation of Supreme's produced will be the reason that they are hard to find. The looks and feel of the Gibson Les Paul Supreme. I have always been a huge fan of the flamed maple tops but the this one goes beyond the Standards.Not only the top is carved maple grade AAAA figured, but also the back of the Gibson Supreme, without cavity covers, matches the top. The body is hollowed and there are no disturbing holes in the back. This also gives the advantage of a slightly lighter Les Paul than the massive ones.
The hardware on the Les Paul Supreme gives you gold. From the humbuckers, Gibson's 490 R and 498 T, to the golden tuners and even the unsuspected golden frets. The Les Paul Supreme is spoiled!Gibson didn't even hesitate to add 7 ply bindings on the top, 5 ply bindings on the headstock and 3 ply bindings on the back to give it a superior finish. Even if you don't play guitar, you want this one hanging on your wall. Gibson USA Les Paul Supreme Since the arrival of a sunburst finish on its carved maple top in 1958, the Gibson Les Paul Standard has been considered the most elegant solidbody electric guitar on the planet. Occasional examples of these rare guitars from 1958-60 showed off gorgeously figured wood beneath their translucent'burst finishes, setting a standard for the marriage of art and luthiery. Taking this look to its extreme, the Gibson USA Les Paul Supreme marries a carved Grade-AAAA figured top and back to the classic Les Paul design, for a guitar of unprecedented beauty. This model bears all the hallmarks of an ornate custom-made instrument, with seven-ply top binding, three-ply back binding, a bound fingerboard with mother-of-pearl (MoP) split-block inlays, a showpiece headstock trimmed in five-ply binding with deluxe MoP globe inlay and "Supreme" banner, MoP Gibson logo, an engraved brass truss-rod cover, gold hardware, and even gold-tinted frets. With gorgeous flamed maple on both sides of a chambered mahogany body core, the Les Paul Supreme is nothing short of stunning.
More than just an incredible looker, however, the Les Paul Supreme is also a powerful tone machine. A pair of Gibson's most popular humbucking pickups with genuine Alnico magnets yield a wide array of voices, from sultry to scorching, while traditional Gibson constructional details such as a 17-degree back-angled headstock, a PLEK-cut Corian nut, and rock-solid Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece pairing team up to provide unparalleled sustain and resonance.
