Description

We are pleased to offer the Limited Edition Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Figured Top. Featuring a one-piece non-weight-relieved solid mahogany back, one-piece hide-glue fitted mahogany neck with a long tenon, hide glue fitted top and fingerboard, aniline dyed back and sides, historically accurate Deluxe Kluson tuners, True Historic Spec spec parts, including all plastics and pickup covers, with a pair of now legendary Custombucker pickups, which provide the classic Les Paul tone. The serial numbers are period correct too - just like if you'd picked one up in a store in the fifties. This guitar features the Gibson VOS nitrocellulose finish in Iced Tea which has a real vintage look, a late 50's neck profile and carries its own unique serial number on the back of the headstock starting with the number '9'. Complete with a Gibson Custom Shop Certificate of Authenticity and brown & pink hard-shell case, this guitar is sure to appeal to both players and collectors alike.

The Les Paul Standard guitar has become synonymous not only with tone and playability, but beauty. The figured maple tops have certainly helped it attain that status, and these limited edition Les Paul Standard Figured Top guitars take the idea to the next level with eye-popping, bold colors -- pulling out every detail of depth and curl of the highly figured maple tops. At its core, it is still the iconic Les Paul Standard you expect, replete with the finest and most accurate vintage replica parts and historic all-hide-glue construction.
