GIBSON USA Les Paul Custom 25/50 Anniversary "Wine Red + Ebony" (1979)

GIBSON USA Les Paul Custom 25/50 Anniversary "Wine Red + Ebony" (1979)


This stunning guitar in red wine! The Les Paul 25/50 was available in tobacco sunburst, natural, wine red, and black. Based on the resale market, it seems that tobacco sunburst was the most popular, followed by natural. Wine red and black are super rare finds! The 25/50 model was created to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Les Paul model and the 50th anniversary of Les Paul's career in the music business. "The '25/50' model, also known as 'The Most Les,' truly stands out in the Les Paul family for a number of special features. From the intricate pearl and abalone headstock inlay to the unique silver and gold hardware combinations, this guitar is a work of art. The abalone side dot marker inlays, stunning flamed maple top, and five-piece flamed maple neck all add to its distinctive look. Not to mention the rare split block parallelogram inlays and the gold truss rod cover inscribed with 'Les Paul Anniversary.' With added touches like a brass nut and a coil tap mini-switch, this model is a true gem in the Les Paul lineup."
