‼Reduced‼  Gibson ES-Les Paul Alex Lifeson Signature Artist Proof #2 White, 2017

he Gibson ES-Les Paul Alex Lifeson Artist Proof #2 is the second of three production proof models built, before the design went to the regular line. All three of these guitars were personally approved by Alex Lifeson.  Alex Lifeson is one of the most recognised rock guitarists, having spent his career with his band Rush. I am reminded of my high school days, seeing Rush perform in the school cafeteria on a stage made of folded tables; this was a long time ago and shows how dedicated Rush has been to working hard.

Gibson Les Paul Studio Gloss Vintage Burst, 2013

Gibson Les Paul Studio Gloss Vintage Burst, 2013

This Gibson Les Paul Studio is in great, original condition, with very little wear. It has all the elements of a Les Paul – the maple capped mahogany body (with weight relief) and mahogany neck. The unbound fingerboards are now Granadillo, in response to restrictions on Indian Rosewood; Granadillo is a South American Rosewood that is very commonly used for instruments on the southern continent. The Gibson Les Paul Studio is one of the better deals in quality electric guitars. Built on the same plan and same machines as other Les Paul Models, the Studio lacks binding and often has less elaborate, and less expensive, finishes. This one, dating to August 15 2013 at Nashville, sports a gloss vintage sunburst.

SOLD!!! Gibson Les Paul Classic Vintage Sunburst, 2008

SOLD!!! Gibson Les Paul Classic Vintage Sunburst, 2008

The Gibson Les Paul Classic Vintage has been produced over several periods – from 1990 to 1998, then from 2000 to 2008, and currently since 2014. For this example, the model features a weight-relieved or partially chambered body, nicely figured top and a bound headstock. This example dates to a fairly warm Thursday, September 4th, 2008 and was built at the Gibson plant in Nashville, Tennessee. It features a nicely flamed maple top with a dark vintage sunburst finish in gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, and the standard Les Paul construction of mahogany body and neck with bound rosewood fingerboard. The head is also bound, a feature otherwise generally found only on the Les Paul Custom. Specific to this model, there are custom routes placed strategically in the body to reduce weight and provide resonance.

SOLD!!! Gibson Les Paul Studio Arctic White, 2013

SOLD!!! Gibson Les Paul Studio Arctic White, 2013

This new, older stock 2013 model Gibson Les Paul Studio in Arctic White. This is a remarkable instrument, using the classic Les Paul design but stripped down in terms of decoration. It is very resonant with lots of sustain, but is light and well balanced. And, because it’s a Studio model, it’s considerably less expensive than a Les Paul Standard, Classic, Traditional or Custom, though it is made in the USA, in the same Gibson Nashville, Tennessee facility.
For added tonal versatility, the two volume control pots are push-pull models, wired to activate a tap on the Gibson USA Modern Classic pickups – a 490R in the neck position and a 498T at the bridge.
