Vintage Guitar - March 2018 - open - 65
2013 Gibson Les Paul Custom
White, very clean condition, good weight,
especially for the oft-heavy Les Paul Custom
model, high quality, near mint, set up
well, plays great and white as the freshlydriven snow. Comes with its certificate of
authenticity and original hard case. Hard to
think of anybody notable who played a white
Custom, other than Steve Jones, Lindsey
Buckingham, and Randy Rhoads. $3,250
2012 Gibson Custom Zakk Wylde
Les Paul Custom Vertigo
Vertigo Bullseye on maple top, this one
is pretty much mint condition,
mahogany body, maple neck and bound maple
fingerboard with pearl block inlays, black back
and sides, Grover tuners, chrome hardware,
active EMG pickups, #092 of 300 made.
Plays great and looks amazing, definitely a
guitar that makes a statement. Comes with
its original hard case and papers. $3,750
1976 Gibson Les Paul Custom
Natural finish, gold hardware including metal
keystone tuners and diamond strap buttons.
The factory gold-polepiece T-Top pickups (all
three of 'em) are missing covers but each offer
great clear tone. The switching? Let's see.
Treble position=bridge/middle pickups, middle
position=all pickups and rhythm position=neck/
middle. Comes with later Protector case. $3,750
1980 Gibson Les Paul Standard
Tobacco Sunburst, a rather rare option. We
love this era for the places the factory took the
time to burst the back, back of the headstock,
sides and sides of headstock and even top of
headstock, a great indicator of painstaking
hand work. This one is clean and pretty light. An
almost 40 year-old Les Paul in a cool color not
often seen. Comes in later hard case. $3,200
1954 Gibson Les Paul Conversion
Sunburst, two piece flame maple top added
int eh 70's plus two original PAF pickups.
No other vintage par ts just old wood.
No fake anything here just forty years
of gut busting rock and roll and sweat
that metamorphose this into something
special. Picture this in and out of bars night
after night after night. Got the picture?
Brown case. $27,500 to fool anybody.
2005 Gibson Historic '58 Les Paul
Faded Cherry Sunburst, nice big
baseball bat neck profile, nice weight
at a shade under 9 pounds, very
cool earlier big neck '58 Historic,
comes with the original COA in the
custom shop black hard case. $3250
