• Here is a very rare and collectible 2003 Gibson Custom Shop Historic 56 Les Paul reissue, with a Brazilian rosewood fretboard. In 2003 Gibson built a number of Historics with Brazilian fretboards ... it goes without saying that very few of these were built lefthanded. I have only seen a handful of lefty Historics out there, this is the only lefty R6 that I have come across. This one-owner guitar was bought new from the (former and greatly missed) Music Machine in Washington state, known for speccing and picking the very best Historics. The guitar is in terrific condition, except for some light buckle rash on the back (nothing through the finish). Top looks brand new, the guitar plays beautifully. With original case and all the extra case candy these guitars came with back in 2003, but the COA is missing. I did, however, verify the serial number with Gibson. Great change to own a very rare Les Paul at not much more than a new R6 runs these days. Condition: Excellent; Body: Mahogany, carved maple top; Color: Gold top; Pickups: P90; Scale: 24.75

  • Here’s a Gibson Custom Shop R8 1958 Les Paul plain top finished in a washed cherry VOS. The guitar has Custom Bucker Alnico III unpotted pickups, fat 58 C neck carve, hide glue fit top and fingerboard, CTS 500K audio taper potentiometers, paper-in-oil capacitors and historic Lifton style case with all case candy, certificate of authenticity booklet. Great guitar. Just under 8 3/4 pounds of Historic tone. Gibson sez: “The 1958 Les Paul Standard Reissue features all the painstaking historic construction methods of the famous '59 Reissues with a few historically-accurate spec differences that allow it to stand on its own. Like the 1958 originals, it has narrow frets which help more of the fingerboard wood to be heard in the tone profile. It also has a round, chunky neck profile for a full feel and maximum bending leverage. And finally it has a beautiful plain maple top; each is unique and full of character.” Condition: VOS; Body: Mahogany; Color: Washed cherry VOS; Pickups: Custom Buckers; Scale: 24.75
