SOLD - Gibson Les Paul Custom Shop Historic Reissue LPR8S R8, 2016
Here's a fine example of recent Gibson Custom Shop greatness.
The guitar is all original, sporting a Sunrise Tea Burst finish and a tasteful flame top.
Hand-sprayed Nitro lacquer finish, hide glue neck construction, Vintage Style-No Tubing truss rod, long tenon neck joint and, Custom Bucker pickups, CTS pots and a lightweight aluminum stopbar are all standard features on 2016 R8s.
