GIBSON USA Les Paul Custom Shop 1957 10th Anniversary "Gold Flake + Ebony" (2003)

Sorry, this listing has ended.


This guitar was made by the Gibson Custom Shop to celebrate the tenth anniversary of their establishment in 1993 as a separate division within Gibson and their move to their own facility separate on Massman Drive in Nashville, two doors down from the Gibson USA plant. Gibson also produced a similar model for the year in Alpine White and gold engravaings with 50 Being Produced. These have been seen to sell for over £7000+.

The specs are dead on.A Reissue of the 1957 les paul Custom.The non weight relieved body is mahogany with a carved maple top. The one piece mahogany neck features a bound Ebony fingerboard with accurate pearloid trapezoid inlays. Dual Humbucking Pick-ups dish out killer tone. Grover tuners and tailpiece round out the hardware. Cool and authentic Diamond Sparkle lacquer is just sublime. A really cool addition to your collection!

This is a great playing and sounding Les Paul. The action is low, the frets are Full and the neck is straight. The Pick-ups sound awesome with warm, vintage tone. Everything works as it should. It appears to have seen little use and is collector owned. It comes in its original brown Lifton case with signed cert, case candy.

Gibson’s Les Paul custom reissues are incredible guitars. The 10th Anniversary is one of the hardest to find. Only made for a year in very small quantities. This Custom is about as close to unobtanium as you're going to get. This is a surefire collectible that would make a cool addition to your Les Paul arsenal.
