When only one variant of the L-6S existed, it was simply called the L-6S. However, this model became the L-6S Custom as other models were added to the line in the mid 1970s
Gibson regularly produced lists of constituent components for each of their guitars; this first list (left) was produced in the 1977 Gibson replacement parts catalogue, at a time that the 'Custom' was used in other Gibson literature (the January 1977 price list for example) - although note that it is not used here. The Deluxe is not listed in entirety in this catalogue, although it's pickup is.
The second list reproduced here (below) was included in the 1981 Gibson part list, towards the very end of the instruments production period. It lists all components, with associated part codes for a 1980 Gibson L-6S Custom guitar. Note some minor changes in part numbers, from the 1977 list above: specifically control assembly components, but the two lists are generally similar.
