A unique piece from the Gibson Custom shop with some tricks up its sleeve....
Another stunning guitar from the Gibson Custom shop, the 2016 Gibson Les Paul Custom 70’s Limited Run will certainly turn heads.
Produced by the custom shop specifically for Sweetwater in the US, this guitar features hand picked flamed maple top and mahogany body, standard Les Paul fair, but married to a 5 piece maple and walnut neck with the custom headstock adornment and binding it makes quite a package. The tobacco burst really accentuated the subtle flame of the top and the pinstripe binding combined with gold hardware is a classy touch. The L5 style neck is a unique feature and suits the upmarket feel of the instrument. The guitar is in mint condition and has been well looked after.
The guitar comes with it own hardshell case
Tonally we get a nice variety of sounds from the guitar. The humbuckers are strident and very much what you’d expect, all the bite and smooth timbre. In addition we get a phase switch engaged via a push-pull on the tone knob which gives the option for some Peter Green-esque excursions. A second push-pull gives us a coil-split on both pickups, lowering the output and giving us a more gentle choice of sound.
This guitar is a unique piece and definitely looks the part. If you’re on the look out for something different but familiar then look no further.
