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 58-60 Les Paul 'burst has taken on a legendary reputation. These instruments sport a distressed 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. Burstbucker 1 and 2 humbuckers are hooked to CTS pots for authentic PAF tone. Kluson style tuners, lightweight Stopbar tailpiece and ABR Tuneomatic bridge round out the hardware. Nickel plated hardware for vintage looks. Bumble Bee caps, long neck tenon, etc. All the features of the originals! The finish is Gibson's classic washed cherry sunburst lacquer. 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! An amazing guitar that looks just like an original Burst!

What a great guitar! The neck shape is nice and full and the fretboard is a joy to play on. A really great guitar. 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.
