Standard Les Pauls throughout the history have been known as heavy axes and a portion of potential players have been turned off by it`s weight. Fat and solid mahogany bodies can really burden the shoulders. But, in exchange for that extra weight, players received a huge tone, unparalleled by any other guitar in the world. Over the course of time, Gibson found the way to ease this burden a bit without compromising the tone. Recent development and improvements have brought the weight relief bodies to the scene, but with Les Paul Custom Lite comes the revolution. It features the modern-contoured LP body with weight relief and considerably thinner mahogany back. Top wood cover is made of traditional plain maple. Glossy Ebony paint is matched with white binding and elegant gold-plated hardware. Neck is made of mahogany and it features the vintage '50s rounded contour in the back. On it`s top, Gibson installs a 22-fret fingerboard made of rosewood. Fingerboard is bound in white and marked with acrylic block inlays. 498T bridge humbucker is paired with 490R in the neck. They have separate volume knobs and joint tone knob. Instead of the second tone knob, Gibson installs a mini-switch. It is a two-position switch which splits the humbuckers into single-coil pickups.
