Presenting a rare gem from 1997, the Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Custom Florentine in mesmerizing Trans Black Flame Top. This exquisite guitar showcases a stunning trans black flame top, complemented by original zebra bobbin Burstbucker pickups. What sets this model apart are its striking F holes, not commonly found on Les Paul Customs, which not only enhance its visual allure but also contribute to its remarkably lightweight build. Accompanied by its original hard-shell case, please note that due to its production year predating Gibson's certificate issuance, it does not include a certificate of authenticity.

While this guitar exhibits signs of play, it remains in excellent condition and performs flawlessly. Expect minor scratches, dings, and some wear on the back, consistent with its age and history. Overall, I would confidently rate its condition a solid 8.5 out of 10. Rest assured, all components are original, with no cracks, repairs, or operational issues. The neck is straight, and the original frets exhibit minimal wear, ensuring a comfortable playing experience free from buzzing or dead spots. Recently set up for optimal performance, this guitar is ready to enchant its next owner. Detailed photos capturing its wear offer transparency and assurance that the guitar you see is the one you'll receive. Thank you for considering this extraordinary instrument.
