GIBSON USA Custom Shop 58' R8 Les Paul Standard *Hand Picked Top "Iced Tea Burst

£4,699.99Price

These beauties are built with the same precision as Historic Reissues, but with some awesome upgrades. Featuring a lightly figured top, wraparound tailpiece, and short neck tenon, these guitars are a sight to behold. With only one pickup and half the control knobs, you'll get to see more of that stunning maple top. Plus, without the neck pickup, you'll have plenty of strumming space and a unique, open sound. But don't be fooled – this guitar isn't just about looks. With the tone and volume knobs, you have total control over your sound. From blistering distortion to a raw, gritty rhythm, the single pickup Les Paul is a versatile powerhouse. Get ready for a whole new world of sonic possibilities!

Condition Report: The Custom Shop turns out some incredible guitars and this R8 is no exception. The 1958 profile neck is nice and full and the jumbo frets make bending a breeze. 8.8 lbs according to my scale. The tone is superlative as well. The Burstbucker 2 pickups are still well loved by many tone savvy players. Condition wise, this is a solid Les Paul . Close scrutiny will reveal no marks or dings whatsoever - Extremely Clean!. Original Hardcase, paperwork. Set-up with a fresh set of 10's and ready to go!
