07 Custom neck material

Recommended Posts

I've got a 07 natural topped Les Paul Custom that I bought new. Withall the richlite fretboard talk on the various forums I am just wondering, am I safe? Mine sure looks like ebony. When did they start this?

Well there is nothing wrong with Richlite - so you don't have to worry about being "safe". But I am pretty sure they didn't start using Richlite until just a few years ago when the feds broke in and confiscated Gibson's Ebony. (2012 or 2013? I don't recall exactly).

 

A 2007 should be Ebony.

Thanks so much for the replies! For awhile on various forums, I've seen lots of talk (pro & con) and I never saw when they started and to me 2007 seems recent so I thought I'd ask here, where I always get straight answers. I need to go to a local Gibson dealer and try a richlite equipted Custom. Who knows, I might like it! Thanks Y'all!
