GIBSON USA Les Paul Studio Gem LTD "Amethyst + Rosewood" (1996)

£1,299.99Price

An awesome Les Paul in a great color with killer pickups! A rare finish, these Les Pauls Gems were only made for a few years. All of the Les Paul features are here. Mahogany body with a maple top for big tone. One piece mahogany neck with a trapezoid inlayed rosewood fingerboard. Dual P-90 pickups for awesome vintage tone. A Stopbar tailpiece, Tuneomatic bridge, and Kluson style tuners team up for rock solid performance. The Amethyst Purple finish is set off by gold hardware and looks awesome. An incredible stage guitar!

This is a good sounding and playing Les Paul. The action is good and the neck is straight. Fairly beefy feeling neck for a Studio of this era. The pickups sound good. A very awesome guitar. This is a fairly clean example with just a hint of play-wear in the form of polish/surface/pick swirls - whatever you want to call it, i would consider it very minor. The gold hardware is still intact which is somewhat of a rarity these days. Would suit a keen collector given the included paperwork and reciept of purchase. Comes in Gibson hardshell case.
