Less than a month has passed since Gibson gave the Les Paul a bold makeover with the Custom Color series, and now the good people of the paint room are at it again, refreshing the storied single-cut electric guitar in a very attractive Dark Purple finish.

These, however, are from Gibson’s limited edition Exclusives Collection, so you better get them while the going is good. Either way, the Gibson Les Paul Standard certainly suits purple, with these exclusives being offered in ‘50s or ‘60s models.
