Les Paul Ultima
There is elegance, and there is class. Then there is the Les Paul Ultima from Gibson Custom – an instrument finished in such magnificence and splendor as to rightly celebrate the absolute finest lineage of solid body electric guitars in the world. If it’s superior craftsmanship and incomparable tone you seek, look no further. The Les Paul Ultima offers  the best of both. In many ways, it is the “ultimate” Les Paul, representing Gibson Custom’s finest example of the union of design style and heritage. From its stunning high-grade quilt or flame Maple top to its Ebony fingerboard with choice of elegantly inlaid designs – Harp, Flame, or The Tree of Life inlay – to its carefully inlaid special Ultima headstock insignia, the workmanship and quality of the Les Paul Ultima will astound you.
