Of course there are some reproductions of the celebrated Les Paul Custom model. Thanks to Luc from Canada, here's a few info:
- solid mahogany body and neck
- solid maple carved top
- set neck
- rosewood fingerboard
- aprox. 9 lbs
- "a product of NB" on the trussrod cover
- no serial number (as in all Stagg models)
This model is highly praised by the owner for its great sustain; he also changed the (good) original pickups for a set of Gibson 500T and 496R that used to be in an 90s Explorer.
The volume and tone knobs are quite certainly the original ones: quite oddly, that seems to be the first (accurate) Custom copy I see with "Bell" instead of "Speed" knobs.
Other Les Paul Custom - using quality woods and the usual mother-of-pearl Stagg inlay on the headstock - are these two examples which come from Ebay auctions (unfortunately I didn't win them!)
The second model in Natural mounts a (non-original) active and spilttable bridge pickup.
One more example of a cross between LP Custom and Standard style (Black but not precisely "Black Beauty", note the knobs and the headstock with decal logo).
