❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Classic Vintage Sunburst, 2008


Instrument Categories: , , ,

The Gibson Les Paul Classic Vintage Sunburst 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.

This Gibson Les Paul Classic Vintage Sunburst guitar is in mostly original condition, with a Lollar pickup in the bridge position; the original pickup is in the case and a custom multilayer BWBWB pickguard has been added. The control knobs have been replaced with amber knurled models. It plays well, and the weight relief really makes a difference to wearability.

The original hardshell case is included.
