Here is a great 2007 Gibson Custom Shop '57 Les Paul Custom VOS reissue in ebony. This reissue replicates the 1957 Les Paul in exacting detail with the stoptail and 2 pickups. Features include gold hardware, mahogany top, mahogany body, mahogany neck, ebony board, block inlays, and large '57 neck profile. Tonally this guitar has a brighter top end and attack from the ebony board, but with the mahogany top, it is rounded out with a mellower and creamier mid-range honk. This instrument was played and enjoyed, there is minor wear throughout; some buckle rash on the back and some light marks on the front. They are all surface scratches, nothing goes down to the wood. Included with the instrument is the original hardshell case, certificate of authenticity, hang tag, care kit, and paperwork.
