  1. I have decided to get a custom built late this year or beginning of next year. I have contacted Gibson Custom shop and then a dealer which is Guitar Center because they are the only dealer around and they are almost 2 hours away. I spoke with the guy at the store and he said there are a ton of options for the one I want but didn't say anymore. So my question is to anyone that has ordered before is, are there any kind of ordering options/lists Gibson provides like colors, finishes, neck types, binding, and so one that they provide? This is my first custom build and is new to me. Thanks everyone.

  3. When I was little I remember my mom listening to and watching Elvis movies over and over after he passed. I remember even now watching him play that big Gibson Super 400 CES on the 68 Comeback Special. That sound stayed with me for life. To me, Gibson was an American icon and still is. When I was in the navy a friend of mine taught me a little guitar, nothing special but he can play anything and I always enjoyed watching him play. When I got out I got a cheap guitar, just to see if I would like playing. You know, that first cheap guitar. I then worked in the coal mines for several years and played off and on and never stuck with it like I wanted too. I decided to go back to school and had more time to play and I knew I had to get another guitar. A real quality guitar that could help me learn and make me want to [play more, I knew it had to be a Gibson Les Paul. No one around where I live sells Gibsons so I took the chance with Guitar Center and got my first Les Paul. I've loved it ever since. Gibson is still an icon of America. Through every genre Gibson has been there. I hope Gibson will continue to be there as I get older. I know there is a lot going on with Gibson Guitars right now and I hope things get better. I hope to add many more to my collection and visit Gibson soon.
