How is it LP customs sound way beefier, tighter and just better than stds etc? is it just better quality mahogany and maple woods?!?

Ebony fingerboards, no maple top on the older ones, different pickups.

i dont see how ebony fingerboards enhance the sound, they resonate much less than rosewood.

Whenever I clean my guitars, my family wonders why it smells so good; I say that I exude a fresh citrus scent from hidden orifices.

You get a much 'tighter' sound with ebony.


You asked why the Custom was beefier and tighter sounding.
