1998 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul ’58 Historic (SOLD)

What we have here is a 1998 Gibson Les Paul 58 Historic with a very rare Sweet Cherry finish, on a nice flame top! This is a very rare model and it’s the same model and colour as the guitar on page 160 of Gibson’s collector’s book, “Beauty of the Burst”. This has an amazing translucent finish, which let’s the nice maple flamed grain show through. It looks a bit like Lucy (the famous George Harrison – Eric Clapton Les Paul)

This was one of a limited run that Gibson did in 1998 as result of the Beauty of the Burst book being published.

A rare and collectible guitar, but the most important thingy is the TONE! What a tone that this guitar has! It’s 19 years old, a well-played, well-used guitar. It’s been loved and played without a shadow of a doubt. The action is killer, the sound is killer as you can expect from a Custom Shop Les Paul.

It’s ALL ORIGINAL (no mods or changes) and it is in well-played, used condition. This is not a closet queen and it has the dings to prove it was loved and played. Well, I tell you what I’d rather buy a Les Paul that is played in by a guitarist than paying horrendous money for a relic’ed Collector’s Choice model which is ding’ed and scratched much more than this by a luthier at the Gibson Factory… this baby has a perfectly honest play wear (hence the price).
The frets are still in great shape (check my picture, they’ve got 10+ years back) and in fact this guitar is set up and ready to play!

It comes with a Gator hard case (in used condition, it does the job, hence the price)

It’s a heck of a nice Custom Shop made very rare 58 Les Paul for £1500 I’d ask about £1000 more if it had the original Custom Shop case and if it was in mint condition!!! SOLD

Guys, please pop in, test it, compare it with my others, you are more than welcome! I prefer buying/selling via personal visits so you can try them live. Also you’ve got the benefit of having a nice, 100% Arabica, freshly ground coffee with me!
