thats cause people are looking at the price, not the guitar. the custom is definatly the better guitar if money isnt an issue. much higher quality than the standard. dam i wish i had that kind of money

get the custom, the customs have much better quality control, and are gennerally nicer.

'60 LP Standard

All Gibsons minus some of the Fadeds and the Studios have excellent quality control.

The Custom 1960 is just a reissue, nothing fancy. Just a Standard Les Paul in 1960. But the 59' LP, now that's a little more important. That's arguably the best year for a Les Paul.
I woke up this morning and I got myself a beer. The future's uncertain and the end is always near.

The standard will be a fine guitar for the price, but if you want a little better quality control and some fancier cosmetics, go for a Les Paul Custom.

Give 10 UGers a rope and ask them to pull. 4 will push, 1 will ask for buttsecks, 2 will tell you get an Ibanez and the last 3 will start complaining about Line6 Spiders.

The LP Supreme was a total disappointment when I tried one. A big waste of
money. With LPs, a standard is probably best bet.

also good luck changing pups there arent any control cavity covers on teh rear for the switch or pots, youd need long skinny fingers to go thru the input jack to solder the wires. They covered the back of the guitar with a matching flame maple rear cap without cutouts after the electronics were installed one would assume.

yes the custom is better. its made by hand but gibsons luthers, not by machine like the standard. much better quality.

nah im kidding, im just not a fan of ceramic pickups, im aware that they're good for metal, but remember some of us here like a more classic sound. thats where alnico pickups come into play.

Okay thanks everyone. I think i'll be going with the standard. Mainly because a standard costs 3,000 dollars over here, while the custom shop would cost me 7.000 dollars. I just can't imagine that the quality gap is big enough to warrant the price

if you have that much money, you should contact the Gibson custom shop and tell them to make one for your own specifications
