⚌Reduced‼Gibson Les Paul Standard Cherryburst, 1998

Here we’re looking at a Gibson Les Paul Standard Cherryburst dating to December 16th 1998 and built at the Gibson Nashville plant. It is in overall good original condition with some light wear on the back in the form of light scratches, and a number of small dents and dings around the body particularly where the player’s arm rests on the lower bass bout. It has little other wear, including negligible fret wear, and plays well. The pickups used on this Gibson Les Paul Standard are the original 498R and 490T set with chrome plated covers, and the original pickguard is still in place.

The Rickenbacker 1997SPC reproduces the three-pickup 1997 model built 1964 to 1967 for export to the United Kingdom, largely sold by Rose Morris and featuring a ‘traditional’ F hole rather than the Rickenbacker slash.
Based on the model 330 designed by expatriate German luthier Roger Rossmeisl and introduced in 1958 and similar to the 340, the original 1997 differed largely in having the narrow violin type F shaped soundhole and a third pickup.
