This new limited run of Gibson Neon Modern Les Paul Axcess Customs are all full of ’80s cool and have dive bombing Floyd Rose bridges as standard.

Neon Modern Les Paul Axcess Custom

The Gibson Custom Shop has just announced these new limited run of neon coloured shred machines that are all based on the Les Paul Axcess Custom model, with thinner bodies, Floyd Rose trem systems and better upper fret access than a regular traditional ’50s style Les Paul.

I bet traditionalists will hate these brightly coloured hot-rodded new Les Pauls, but I kind of think that is cool. The solid mahogany bodies are finished in neon ’80s-tastic colours and have two-piece maple tops. The guitars are weight-relieved and have a comfort-carve belly on the rear.

With slim C-Shape neck profiles with Richlite fingerboards and the aforementioned contoured Axcess heel join, these shred machines are made for rock.

They are loaded with a 498T and a 496R four conductor uncovered humbucking pickups wired for coil splitting via the push-pull pots on the Tone controls. So you can get some handy single coil tones as well as the raucous rock humbucking ones.

Handy if your car breaks down on the way home from a gig, just stick it out on the side of the road to warn oncoming traffic [thumbup]
we had longer ways to go, but no matter, the road is life.

ok, but Ive had it with buying Floyd Rose equiped guitars and hard-tailing them. Its a waste of £200 straight away.

Can't understand why they're $500 million in the hole with products like those.

Hey Gibson, the 80's called and they wanted those guitars in 1986. Is neon a thing again? Was it ever a thing? Those definitely aren't my cup of tea but bless their hearts for trying.
