Gibson Les Paul Standard Pelham Blue, 2016

Gibson Les Paul Standard Pelham Blue, 2016

Here’s an unusual find – a very good condition Gibson Les Paul Standard in Pelham Blue, built as a 2016 model and dating to the last day of 2015.  The Gibson Les Paul Standard appeared as a 1958 model and introduced Gibson’s new humbucking pickups. Prior to this, the Les Paul had been available in several forms – the Les Paul, Les Paul Custom, Les Paul Special and Les Paul Junior. All of those used P90 pickups except the Custom, which carried an AlNiCo ‘Staple Top’ pickup in the neck position.

PRS Standard Solidbody Tobacco Sunburst, 1987

PRS Standard Solidbody Tobacco Sunburst, 1987

The PRS Standard appeared in 1987 as an evolutionary step and as a model rename from the 1985 PRS model, with carved top, all Mahogany construction except for the 1o inch radius, 25 inch scale Rosewood fingerboard. Until 1991, Brazilian Rosewood was used for fingerboards on this model. Here we’re looking at a PRS Standard, built during 1987 in Stevensville, Maryland and sporting a dark tobacco sunburst model, which transitions to a darker red on the back and neck.

❌SOLD❌  Gibson 1958 Les Paul Standard Reissue, Bourbon Burst 2020

The Gibson 1958 Les Paul Standard introduced not only a new version of the Les Paul design, but was also the first of the ‘Burst’ models. Here we have a lovely, brand new Gibson 1958 Les Paul VOS NH Reissue in Bourbon Burst. This beautiful instrument strives to be an accurate reproduction of an aged – new old stock and Vintage Original Specification – with oxidized nitrocellulose lacquer finish and nickel hardware. It is not a ‘Relic’ model and has none of the simulated wear or chipping resulting from those processes.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson Gary Moore Les Paul Standard Honeyburst, 2000

❌SOLD❌  Gibson Gary Moore Les Paul Standard Honeyburst, 2000

The Gibson Gary Moore Les Paul was built from 2000 to 2002 at Nashville, Tennessee and reflects but doesn’t copy Moore’s 1959 Burst originally used by Peter Green in Fleetwood Mac. Taking a regular Les Paul body and neck, the Gibson Gary Moore model does away with body and neck binding, and has a wiring or magnetic configuration that mimics the ‘out of phase’ tone on Peter Green’s Burst. Green felt that the pickup had been physically reversed, but in reality one of the pickup magnets may have been reversed as a manufacturing error.

❌SOLD❌   Gibson Slash Signature Rosso Corsa, 2013

Released in a limited run of 1200 instruments during 2013, the Gibson Slash Signature Les Paul sports an AAA-grade flame maple top and a new ‘Rosso Corso’ or Racing Red finish, and of course with the distinctive Slash graphic on the head. Well known for his work with bands like Guns ‘N Roses, Velvet Revolver and many side projects, it’s natural that there would be a Gibson Slash Signature Les Paul.
