Limited edition Gibson Custom Shop G0/R0 Les Paul commissioned by Guitar Center in 2008. "Darkburst" plaintop finish based on an original 1960 Les Paul featured in the Beauty of the Burst book.
It been upgraded with a metal jack plate, 50's wiring schema with paper in oil capacitors, and Brandonwound JP#1 pickup set. The original Burstbucker pickup set is included along with the original pots and bumblebee caps.
All hang tags/case candy is present along with the COA and OHSC. Weight is 8lbs 13oz.
No significant imperfections to note, but I wouldn't grade it as mint. A few pick marks and tiny nicks. I think a few minutes on a professional buffing machine would get it to 9.5/10. For a 15 year old instrument, it's in excellent shape.
Low action set up for .10 - .46 strings. It plays just like you'd think a custom shop guitar should. Gorgeous rosewood fingerboard, frets are almost like new. In my opinion one of the prettiest LP finishes out there. Selling to fund another project, but not desperate. $3800 cash firm, not interested in trades. Thanks for looking, email with any questions.
