About This Listing

Pictures don't do the guitar Justice at all, it is an absolute gem of a guitar. It is a 1998 Gibson R8 '58 Les Paul Reissue in Cherry Sunburst. This guitar sounds, looks and plays fantastic. It is light weight 8 lbs., 9 oz. The guitar was from the “good wood” era. Some of the best wood Gibson used for these guitars was in 1998. The guitar reflects it too. It is very resonant and it sustains for days. There are several resonant points that you can feel the notes ring through out the whole guitar.

The pickups, capacitors, nut and strap buttons have been replaced. It has Seymour Duncan custom shop "A" humbucker set wound by MJ (7.7k neck 8.3k bridge), 715p 600v 0.022uf orange drop caps, (original pickups in the case)

The guitar does not come with a COA, in 1998 Gibson didn't issue them.

The guitar has minimal checking and a few tiny marks, dents, the guitar was played and is over 20 years old. The frets have wear but there is still lots of life in them, 85% or so.

This guitar has it all, tone, low action, gorgeous flame top and it is light weight
