GIBSON USA Les Paul Custom Classic Les Paul "Wine Red + Rosewood" (2013)

The Les Paul Classic Custom is a take on the original Les Paul Custom designed. Like the "Tuxedo" Les Paul Custom of the '50s, the Classic Custom features multi-layer binding, block inlays, and the Les Paul Custom headstock logo. However thats not what makes these special - whilst this features a rosewood fretboard most of these came with Baked Maple. Gibson was raided by government officers in 2011 because they had been purchasing tropical tone wood on the black market from unofficial individuals in ramshackle third world nations with diceypolitical situations. Tree poachers, if you will. So the wood was not "legal" to own or use as a product, or to sell according to International law, and according to USA laws. After the contraband wood (or so-called contraband) wood was seized Gibson then used baked maple as a substitute for rosewood and ebony. Those come from Madagascar and some East Indian nations. The Baked Maple is a U.S. domestic product. Also known as "Torrified Maple." That being said, these have generated alot of demand and interest over the last couple of years with me buying them more then what i sold them for 5 years ago.
