I'm on the fence about this one. It's the Les Paul Custom appointments on an Explorer, which seems pretty cool! Can't seem to find much by way of reviews or experiences with this one. Pricey and unique looking. What do you guys think?

To me, it's like putting a porcupine in a tuxedo.

A No-vote, for me



EDIT: don't get me wrong, I love a good explorer or Reverse Firebird,
but I appreciate them in all their showy-wood-grain'd-ness.

I like it a lot, you would not have to twist my arm to play it lol

However my favorite is still a simple natural finished Korina (or mahogany) with a white pickguard and covered pick ups

The only Gibson electric I would hate to see get the custom treatment is the Firebird. It just wouldn’t fit.

I think it looks kind of cool Custom-ized. As Explorers go, that is one of the better looking configs.

That said, if I got a Gibson Custom Explorer, I would prefer a straight '58. Not one of those sad "Clapton Cut" Explorers. :barf

Looks great that way, but I too would prefer nickle hardware.

I don't like pointy guitars including explorers. But even for me that look awesome.

Beautiful, I've always dug them.
The black SG custom, and the vintage white Firebird customs look killer too.
