The Les Paul Custom made its debut in 1954 after the initial success of the Les Paul Goldtop. Les Paul thought his namesake guitar needed a new look and suggested a classy ebony finish would go well with a tuxedo on stage. But Les also knew that the “Les Paul” guitar had to keep up with the competition, so his "Les Paul" also got an additional pickup, making the Les Paul 'Black Beauty one of the most striking guitars of its time. Les thought so too and frequently performed with his Black Beauty on the Les Paul and Mary Ford weekly television show.

The Black Beauty has a classic Les Paul body made from mahogany finished, of course, in a classic ebony finish. The neck is also made from durable mahogany with a slim taper "D" shaped profile, 24.75" scale length, and a 12" radius fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets punctuated with pearloid block inlays. The Black Beauty is equipped with three Alnico Classic™ humbuckers with a three-way toggle switch. The guitar also features Grover tuners, gold hardware, and Locktone™ Tune-o-matic/Stopbar bridge.
