If you like highly figured maple tops this Les Paul Custom delivers, and if you like blue so much the better. The finish on the mahogany body and neck, by the way, is very dark blue, not black (although in normal indoor lighting it's hard to tell). There's only the slightest signs of playing wear and zero tarnish or discoloration to the gold plating. One nice touch is the highly figured mother-of-pearl inlays on the neck, and when combined with the heavily quilted maple top the result is an eye-catching Les Paul for sure. Typical 1960 neck profile.
