The Custom had recently been available in several variants: with two or three pickups, gold or nickel hardware and with an ebony or maple fretboard (see pages 3 and 4 of the 1978 Gibson catalogue), however by the 1980 catalogue only the hardware plating option is specifically offered.
The regular Les Paul Custom with gold plated parts had a US list price (July 1980) of $949 for all finishes except Cherry Sunburst, which was priced $999. The version with nickel plated parts was naturally cheaper, at $899.
