Additional Information: Circa 2010, this customised and meticuluosly detailed and adapted replica of a 1968 Les Paul Custom, shines to the letter what the fine builders at Gibson's Custom Shop really can do. With details of the era including large round profile, yet incredibly comfortable neck with Ebony fingerboard, long tenon giving much more neck to body contact, single piece Mahogany back, Burstbucker pickup, historic gold plated Aluminium ABR-1 and stoptail - but that is where it all ends. This instrument is chambered, opening up it's tonal voicing bringing this beauty in at a forgiving 7.7lbs, but the real show stopper here is the absolutely jaw dropping, 5A quilted maple top complimented in Emerald Green with a natural back. We have never seen a top on a Gibson guitar like this, and may never again. Not only does this instrument sing, it is just drop dead gorgeous - a momentary chance to catch a real collectors and players piece a like.
This guitar has been restrung with D'Addario strings.
