The Gibson custom shop go to incredible lengths to ensure that the guitar you buy is as close to an original 1958 Les Paul as it can be. Traditional methods like hand scraped binding, hot hide glue neck joints and period correct dyes are used to give you something as close to a real vintage Les Paul as possible without having to be a millionaire.
This 2017 version is a case queen. It's been really well looked after and has barely been played. There are no chips or dings at all! It's 9.09lbs which is a good solid weight for a Les Paul and plays and provides the perfect platform for classic Les Paul sustain and punch.
The flame maple top is striking but not over the top. Just enough flair to look authentic. It's finished in 'Iced Tea' which emulates the fading of an analine died Les Paul over time perfectly. The neck is chunky, round and perfect for blues bends or Bonamassa style runs. The rosewood board is nice and dark with a varied and interesting grain. This is a phenomenal example of an R8. It comes withall the appropriate documentation and the pink lined Lifton Hardcase.
