2013 Gibson Lucy Aged Model!

Beautiful LOW-NUMBER Gibson Custom Shop Lucy Aged Les Paul Signature Model! Only 100 made and is one of the most desirable signature models ever made. This one is very clean and was collector-owned. The guitar plays well and sounds like a classic Les Paul! This is not your ordinary Les Paul. It has some unusual specs versus regular Les Paul's including the Cherry Red finish, far off-center seam, small frets like on original 57's, Grover tuners etc... The COA is missing. They are large and don't fit in the cases so are easily misplaced. The guitar is in excellent condition. Comes with original hardshell case.

This Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul represents a musical history encompassing some of the most notable songs, recordings, and players of the 1960s and 70s. The original guitar which this model tributes started life as a 1957 Goldtop Les Paul, owned famously by John Sebastian, then Rick Derringer - who refinished the guitar from its factory gold to cherry red. The guitar was then found in the hands of Eric Clapton, then George Harrison. Both Clapton and Harrison would go on to use this guitar on some of their most renown works of their early careers.

In 2013, the Gibson Custom Shop faithfully and painstakingly reproduced this guitar in 100 available pieces, with allowance through the estate of George Harrison.

This guitar, dubbed by Harrison as "Lucy" features a one piece lightweight mahogany body with a plain-maple top with off-center seam (a feature of many '50s Goldtops). Lucy's mahogany neck - set with hot-hide glue , which Gibson Custom measured from the original '57 Les Paul. Electronically, this guitar is equipped with Gibson Alnico III Custom Buckers with Bumblebee capacitors, for period correct tone and accuracy to the original PAF pickups in Harrison's guitar. Other features include a nylon nut, ABR bridge, and Grover 12:1 "Kidney Bean" tuners.
