With modern specs on an old school canvas, these HP models from Gibson harness the best of vintage modern design. It's light burst finish looks almost like something from a historic model, however more current hardware makes it play and feel a little newer.

Weighing 8.39 lbs, it's modern weight relieved body is a great to play in a standing position. Asymmetrical taper neck provides a very relaxing feel and the compound radius is a welcome change. 

The pickups have been changed (we don't have the originals) for a Seymour Duncan slash set, which in out opinion work impeccably with this particular guitar. The tuners have also been changed to Grover Locking tuners for extra stability and easy restringing. 

This guitar is in totally mint condition with no signs of age or playwear. It comes with it's original Gibson hard case.
