About This Listing

1979 Gibson Les Paul Standard in Cherry Sunburst finish!

Beautiful 3-D Flame!!! 

Original owner since new!!

40 years old. Made in the original Gibson plant in Kalamazoo, MI

Very desirable, SUPER RARE guitar with a HIGHLY FIGURED Book-Matched Flame Maple Top! THE FIRST BOOKMATCHED HERITAGE CHERRY FLAME TOP SINCE PRODUCTION CEASED IN 1960. Crazy!!

There seem to be two other guitars out there that pre-date this Standard but both are Vintage/Tobacco Sunburst and NOT the extremely desirable Cherry Sunburst Finish!

Made just 20 years after the original 1959 Les Paul Standard IN THE SAME KALAMAZOO FACTORY BY SOME OF THE SAME PEOPLE!!

You will NEVER see another because they only made a few!.....and this just may be the first Heritage Cherry Sunburst Boolmatched Flame Maple Top Les Paul since 1960!

This was the era when Gibson was trying to find itself again. Before the Heritage 80 models. Before the age of the Custom Art & Historics. Before Strings N Things started ordering some "59 Spec" Gibsons from the factory. Jimmy Wallace was convincing the factory to re-issue a "true" '59 Les Paul Standard and special ordering two-piece flame-tops. They got this top right and it's beautiful!!

Very Good + condition with only a slight bit of buckle rash and some slight playwear throughout.

Other than that, this guitar is Excellent condition! Finish is very glossy. Fingerboard is nice. Frets have some life left.

Only 9 lbs 8 oz.

One owner. Purchased Brand New in 1979 from Rody's Music in Savannah, GA.

ALL ORIGINAL WITH ORIGINAL HARD SHELL CASE.

No breaks, repairs or re-sprays.
