2016 Gibson Les Paul Custom Shop R8 Q-58 Reissue Quilt Top Guitar.
This is one of the coolest Custom Shop Les Pauls that we have ever seen.
It is a 2016 R8 Q, which stands for quilt top. And what a quilt top it is…..
If you can find a better one, but it immediately because this is quite simply one of the most beautiful les pauls I have ever seen. You just don’t find R8’s with this type of top. Ever.
Absolute mint condition. It was collector owned and has very little (if any) playing time on it.
It is not only stunning to behold, it plays great as well.
The finish is amazing and a color that you will find about as often as you find a quilt top like this. It looks like some type of bourbon burst but with more red hues to the burst than you would typically find.
The fretboard is amazing, a 1-piece Indian rosewood gem.
Truly a one-off guitar, this thing would be a center piece in any Gibson collection.
Comes as pictured with COA and all case candy.
