Les Paul Custom I

Ok, here we go with guitar number one, my first Les Paul Custom. I always wanted to have this guitar, I always loved the way it looks and sounded, so in 1997 I finally decided to get one myself, and this started my addiction to Les Pauls right away. Even though this guitar was "just" a regular model straight out of the shop without any custom modifications for me, it immediately became my favourite and main guitar, it was (and still is) just the perfect guitar in my opinion. The only detail that I changed was replacing the original pickups with two EMG 81 pickups, besides this it is exactly as I bought it back then, all the details can be seen on the Gibson homepage.
