Gibson Les Paul Standard Left Handed Black, 1986

Gibson Les Paul Standard Left Handed Black, 1986

Here we have a Gibson Les Paul Standard Left Handed model, in gloss black! Dating to 1986, this example is in overall good condition with a few bumps. Production of left handed Gibson Les Paul models has never been extensive, but does date back to the late 1950’s. There are at least three known, surviving left handed Les Paul Standards built between 1958 and 1960, which indicates how few were really made.

The Gibson Les Paul Standard as a distinct model appeared in 1958, based on the 1957 Les Paul Gold Top that carried the new Humbucking pickups but with a sunburst finish and a figured top. However, the Les Paul was declining in popularity, and the model was completely redesigned as what we now know as the SG, for 1961. The traditional single-cutaway Les Paul was out of production until 1968.

Gibson Flying V Black, 1993

The Gibson Flying V was introduced in 1958 as part of an effort by Ted McCarty to modernize Gibson’s reputation with futuristic designs, along with the Explorer and the only-prototyped Moderne. While a few prominent players immediately picked up the Flying V, it was not popular and production ceased by 1959. During 1963, a few were built from leftover parts, but the two initial 1958 production batches totaled around 80 instruments.
