GIBSON USA Les Paul Custom Shop M2M R7 "Aged" 1957 "Candy Blue + Rosewood" 2019

An incredible tribute to the instrument that many consider to be the pinnacle of guitar craftsmanship and tone! Not many examples built during this era, the 57 Les Paul has taken on a legendary reputation. This sports an aged  finish and all the right specs. The non weight relieved body is mahogany with a carved maple top. The mahogany neck features a bound rosewood fingerboard with accurate pearloid trapezoid inlays and a correct 50s style neck shape. Custombuckers and bumblebee caps for authentic PAF tone. Kluson style tuners, lightweight Stopbar tailpiece and ABR Tuneomatic bridge round out the hardware. Nickel plated hardware for vintage looks. All the features of the originals! This is a M2M (Made to measure) Guitar. Essentially, custom-made in Gibson's M2M program, small series or individual pieces are also manufactured according to customer specifications. From what i am told this is a custom order. The finish has been aged and shows checking, dents, dings and wear just like you would expect from a 50 year old original. Incredible looks!

The neck shape is nice and full and the fretboard is a joy to play on. The pickups sound excellent with tons of tones and sustain. This one has quintessential Les Paul tone. This one was owned by a collector as a result, it has seen very little playtime. The frets show little sign of use and the guitar is as nice as many you would find new in stores. The aged finish looks awesome and has great vibe. Comes in original hardshell case with a pile of case candy.

This is easily one of the most gorgeous Les Pauls I've seen in recent months. Real vintage vibe and tone.
