GIBSON USA Custom Shop Elegant Les Paul *Limited Edition #1/ 400 "Cherry Red +Eb

GIBSON USA Custom Shop Elegant Les Paul *Limited Edition #1/ 400 "Cherry Red +Eb

This is a Custom Shop guitar that didn’t have a very long production run. Introduced in 1997 and was apparently the first of Gibson’s chambered LP’s. Beautiful abalone fret inlays, in fact some of the nicest i have seen. The Elegant are said to be a guitar which offered the very best materials which Gibson had to offer at the time. Some Earlier versions even had quilted mahogany backs. Something which is seldom seen unless you buy a PRS Private stock. I really cant rate these guitars enough. If your looking for a solid investment and a beautiful guitar to hang so all can see.. You cant beat a Gibson Les Paul elegant. Please also note that this is a limited Run of 400. Further details will be added once i receive more information from Gibson.

Condition Report:  A beautiful Gibson here in this gorgeous cherry red quilted finish. The frets look unused and the neck is straight. In addition, the odd very minor impression and small patch of buckle rash to the rear.  Very Minor Clear-coat and pick surface swirling to the rear and front lower body and some Gold Hardware Fade.  Usual to find on a gold-plated Gibson of this age but it really is in amazing condition, no nasty dings or nocks and works beautifully. Set up professionally with 10's with official hard case. The Elegant series didn't come with a COA - for those of you who are wondering, however a Gibson leaflet with the serial number would have been issued but unfortunately this has been misplaced. There is however a CD from the original sale which includes some photos.
