1998 Gibson 1958 Les Paul Flame Top!
VINTAGE-LOOKING TOP! These are more rare than what you see today from Gibson Custom Shop because these were made in much fewer numbers and collectors tend to hold onto them. Early figured R8 available through Yamano, the Japanese distributor for Gibson guitars back at this time. Yamano were very particular and only accepted the best Gibson had to offer. Back when Gibson made these in very limited numbers. Known as the Good-Wood Era and this particular one shows why people call them that! Killer tops, great finish, and more time spent making these guitars. This particular model has a stunning vintage-looking top finished in a Butterscotch/Lemon Burst finish. A not-overly-beefy '58 profile neck combined with a pair of Gibson PAF reissue humbuckers makes this gorgeous Les Paul an awesome sounding guitar & a must have for any serious player or collector!
This R8 is 25+ years old but looks pretty good! There are however scratches and light dings as shown. The guitar comes with the original hardshell case, original Yamano paperwork, and hang tags as shown. The pickups are Gibson '57 Classics. The guitar has a beautiful top and really great color. These rarely come up for sale and is a great opportunity for those looking for the "Good-Wood" Era of the 1990's!
