2019 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul R0 '60 Reissue Wildwood Spec Ice Tea Sunburst w/ ohsc
Summary: (From Wildwoodguitars.com)- “Gibson's original "Burst" Les Pauls are perhaps the most sought-after, legendary vintage guitars of all time. They are renowned for their beauty and snowflake-like uniqueness. After all, each one had a different level of flame in the maple top, and each finish received a different amount of UV light, which drastically changes the finish. So, no two are alike, and that's the beauty of the burst.”
This Les Paul is particularly resonant and looks absolutely stunning on the wall at our shop. The pickups have a nice sparkling quality and punch while retaining a nice vintage ambiance. This LP is in wonderful shape and comes with the original hard-shell case and COA.
Body: The lightweight solid one piece mahogany body is topped with a beautiful flamed maple top with a light ice tea burst finish and cream binding.
Neck: It has a glorious feeling, slim taper 1960’s profile mahogany neck with a bound dark Indian rosewood fretboard, 22 frets, 12” radius, aged cellulose nitrate trapezoid inlays, 1 11/16” nut width, 24 ¾” scale length, Kluson Deluxe tuning machine with Emerald Keystone buttons, long neck tenon- held together with hot hide glue as per the originals.
Pickups/Hardware: (From Wildwoodguitars.com) - “We also requested that Gibson use Wildwood Spec pickups in these beasts, and we couldn't be happier with the results. They have such incredible vintage vibe that you'd think you took a time machine back to London circa 1966 when you plug one in. They have all of the qualities we covet in old-school PAFs: warm, clear low-end, upper-midrange snarl, low-mid growl, and sweet, singing highs. The bridge pickup is as punchy, muscular, and articulate as an undefeated prizefighter with a master's degree in communication. Flipping over to the neck pickup makes you feel like you dove into a vat of melted artisan milk chocolate. It's warm, inviting, vocal, creamy, and righteously smooth.” The hardware also has a nice vintage patina to it that really captures the vibe of a 60s Les Paul.
Cosmetics: This guitar has been kept in fantastic shape but does shows just a few signs of playwear. The frets are in great shape with no gouges or wear to mention. There are a few very small dents in the finish on the back of the guitar, some small dings around the treble pickup volume knob, a dent on the side by the output jack, two small dents on the back edges of the headstock, a few light scratches by the toggle switch and some small scuffs here and there if you really look for them.
Playability: Our in house luthier is a Les Paul aficionado and takes great pride in the set ups and maintenance of them in our shop. It plays wonderfully with nice low action and has been strung up with a new set of 10s. It is an incredibly resonant guitar and sounds very sweet and lively both acoustic or through the amp.
Weight: 8 lbs, 9 oz.
Case: This guitar comes in the very nice original Gibson Les Paul case with COA and we will ship it fully packed, padded and insured!
