Yah, like pierce said, Special, overall lower quality (woods, electronics, etc.), Standard is, well, standard, and the custom just has some higher quality characteristics (AA maple, etc.) plus you get some different design elements (binding on headstock, etc.).

Check out the specs on Gibson's website, they're what helped me, you can even see how similar Epi Les Paul's are to Gibson's Les Paul.

Customs and standards are much the same although customs look better
