2008 Gibson Custom Shop R0 1960 Reissue Limited Run Les Paul-Dark Burst.

This guitar was a Guitar Center exclusive, part of a limited run of guitars based off a Les Paul on page 130 of “Beauty of the Burst”.

9.3 lbs

This Les Paul is the best ‘deal’ in the shop. If you are looking for a Custom Shop Lp at a great price, this is the one!

It has had a fresh crown and level, so the frets are perfect and the neck is awesome. It plays superbly.

The pickups have been changed to Gibson Slash Signature models, which if you ask me is an improvement:)

There was what looked to be a chemical reaction, probably from a guitar stand, on the back of the neck near the body. It has been repaired by a pro luthier and while you can see it in the pics, all it is, is a discoloration. Nothing you can feel with your fingers. The neck is silky to touch.

There are some marks here and there on the guitar. Check out the pics, you can see them, but there are no major issues. Along with the crown and level, it has been gone through and professionally set up  by the same luthier who did the frets and its in tip top playing condition.

Comes as pictured with Gibson Custom Shop case.


Again. This guitar is a steal. If you are looking for a great Custom Shop Les Paul to PLAY rather than to sit and look at, this one smokes.
