Comments:

First introduced into the Gibson line-up in 1952 with the endorsement of the most popular guitarist of the day, the LesPaul has been played and recorded probably as much as any guitar out there, save the Fender Strat and Tele maybe? This is a truly beautiful guitar from the Gibson Custom, Artistic & Historic Division. This guitar exhibits the pride, and meticulous craftsmanship that truly fine luthiers such as these posess.The gold hardware on this model coupled with the flame maple top and the cranberry color, create a very striking appearance which just compliments the classic LesPaul sound. This is an immaculate instrument that would be a tremendous addition to any players collection.

This instrument is documented in the BunnyBass Musical Instrument Archive.
