Hey guys,

I have a quick question pertaining to the gibson customs. I was wondering if there was any inspiration or meaning behind the split diamond logo displayed on the headstock of the all the gibson customs. Its a timeless and eye-catching design and was wondering how it came about.

I think there were Les Paul editions without the split diamond, but with the crown used at the SG or at the ES guitars.

Am I wrong??

You are not. People remember a LP Custom is a model that is made it the custom shop and is the next step up from a Standard. Its not the kind of custom (like the made to measure program) that lets you ordered one from Gibson through a dealer with specs you wanted and now it a one off Custom LP.

Before there was a Custom Shop, I always thought of a "Custom" as being only a model, a model that was above a "Standard" and which included (at a minimum) gold hardware, 3-ply binding  including the headstock, and the split diamond.

Binding on the back too.
