The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌ SOLD ❌ Les Paul Standard Double Cutaway Limited ‘Ocean Water’ Blue, 2016


Instrument Categories: , , ,

The modern Gibson Les Paul Double Cut is based on a model introduced in late 1958 as the budget-priced, slab body Les Paul Special, but adds a carved top with AAA flamed maple. It’s a distinctive design that allows full fingerboard access.

This example was built at the Gibson Nashville plant in 2016 as a Limited Edition model run. For this run, 100 guitars were built in each of three colours – Cherry Sunburst, Wine Red and Ocean Water.

The nicely flamed top of the Les Paul Standard Double Cut uses a translucent, ‘Ocean Water’ blue finish that’s almost turquoise. The rest of the body and neck are a dark, midnight blue that’s nearly opaque. Hardware is chrome, including Grover locking tuners that make restringing a breeze, tune-o-matic bridge and stop tailpiece. The pickups are open-coil zebra humbuckers with a simplified wiring scheme – pickup selector, master volume and master tone. Schaller Strap-Locks are installed.

We don’t see a lot of Les Paul Standard Double Cuts but they are one of my favourites. The lines work well aesthetically, and the cutaways are completely practical in increasing access and reducing weight. This guitar is in overall very good condition, with slight wear and a couple of small marks on the back.

The original Gibson hard shell case is included.
