Gibson USA announce new Les Paul CM Black – a follow-on from last years CM (Carved Mahogany) model except this one has even more attitude – pure metal attitude. Features the newest Floyd Rose innovation – the FRX is a flawless surface-mounting retro-fit requiring no routing — a direct swap for the Tune-O-Matic and stopbar type bridge system…

The body is made from solid Mahogany with a satin ebony finish – there’s no weight-relief – cut with a light carve with a slimmer profile than a normal Les Paul and weighs in at 4 lbs (1.8 kg). Comes loaded with a pair of Dirty Fingers+ pickups.

Pure Metal from the headstock to the straplock. The Les Paul CM Black will handle the heaviest, most aggressive styles and look amazing doing it.
