From Gibson:

From hand-selecting the wood to final approval of each guitar, Lee Roy Parnell is part of the process in creating each Gibson Custom Lee Roy Parnell Signature '57 Les Paul Goldtop. Many of Lee Roy's personal tweaks to his instrument have been incorporated in this signature model. An extended cutaway gives you better access to the upper frets of the guitar. This cutaway doesn't look any different from the front, but at the back an extra 7-degree back-angled contour has been added for extended access your entire fretboard. The new Big Block cavity leaves more wood in the pickup cavities giving you enhanced resonance and tone.

Gibson Custom paid just as much attention to the Gibson Custom Lee Roy Parnell Les Paul's electronics as they did to its aesthetics. Beginning with vintage CTS potentiometers and NOS capacitors, every part of its internal signal path is designed to give you absolutely dead-on vintage Les Paul tone. Of course, it's next to impossible to find genuine '50s PAFs (even for Gibson). Instead, the Lee Roy Parnell Les Paul sports a pair of Ron Ellis custom-wound humbuckers with PAF attitude and a little extra punch. You just won't find another Les Paul that comes as close to the look, sound, and feel of the Gibson Custom Lee Roy Parnell Signature '57 Les Paul!
