Gibson Les Paul Artisan Guitar, 1977

Gibson Les Paul Artisan Guitar, 1977

The Gibson Les Paul Artisan was built during the middle of the 1967-1986 Norlin period. The body uses the Les Paul Custom theme of bound, carved three-piece maple cap, on a bound mahogany back, but also uses a three-piece maple neck (five if you count the ‘wings’ for the headstock width). The ebony fingerboard and headplate are both bound, and as mentioned both the headstock and fingerboard feature a hearts-and-flowers mother of pearl inlay and script logo set that clearly draw from classic Gibson banjos. The Artisan is one of the very few Gibson guitar models to use this type of inlay pattern.
