About This Listing

Want to add a very special one-off prototype to your Gibson collection? Want a featherlight les paul standard that screams?

This is a used 2001 Gibson Les Paul with a Beautiful Amber Flame Top in Excellent Condition. It is marked with "Proto" short for Prototype on back of the head stock. The body is made of real hard but featherlight Pauwlonia wood. It mimics the weight of the 1959 Honduras mahogany used back in the day. And it RINGS, has sustain for ages.

100% all original as it left the factory!

Mahogany 60's style neck
Dark rosewood fingerboard
Tusq XL bone nut
Medium frets, minimal wear. 
Vintage style Gibson Deluxe tuners
No pickguard was ever installed so no screw holes!

It weighs in at 6 lbs. 15 oz. on a digital scale. great weight if you play long gigs.

A few really small dents on the back, see pics, some light pick marks, no dings or buckle rash! Excellent condition for collector or player!
Includes Gibson Custom Shop case.

Apparently this was a special order for a Gibson Executive named Fred Greene who
worked for Gibson from 2001 and his name is written in the neck pickup cavity. A copy of the original receipt is included as provenance.
