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 2013 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 a good solid weight of 8.95lbs and provides the perfect platform for the classic sustain and punch you would expect from a Les Paul
The flame top is nice and tasteful with a subtle figure, not to over the top but enough to keep it interesting. The iced tea burst is a lovely colour, mimicking the subtle discolouration of old burst finishes over the decades .
An all round brilliant example of an R8 and it comes with all it's documents and original brown hard case.
All our guitars are meticulously fret dressed, set up and restrung to give you a guitar that feels and plays perfectly while maximising it's full tonal potential.
Customisation is a service we will happily provide for little to no extra cost. If you wish to have a specific set of pickups or parts fitted, we will happily oblige. Please don't hesitate to ask!
