Click To Enlarge

Here is an excellent, and early example from Gibson's "Heritage-80" series. This model was introduced in 1980 as the flagship of the "Tim Shaw era". It was the first step in resurecting the late 1950's-early 60's glory after the experimental (puff-puff) 1970's "Norlin" era. Widely considered to be the very first 1959 Reissue, the Heritage-80 Standard re-introduced such desired vintage features as mahogany neck, one-piece body, smaller heastock w/ vintage angle, fat rounded neck profile, narrow binding in cutaway, PAF style pickups. Perhaps most notable is the return of the highly figured maple top; Very few flame-tops were produced between 1961-1979, and they were often awkwark 3-piece tops.  This beauty has the type of top that, over 30 years later, remains the benchmark for Les Paul collectors. This is a very low serial number in the Heritage Series, placing it among the first of it's kind!!
 

* This guitar is in excellent condition, with only very minor playwear & a few small marks.
No major dings, dents, scratches, or buckle rash. 

* Authentic vintage look, feel and tone.. upgraded Sprague 50's-style tone-caps. Original orange-drop caps are included!

* There have been no structural modifications, damage or repairs 

* The tailpiece appears to be newer, and the truss-rod cover is a blank 59-style cover. Later models had a "Heritage" truss-rod cover, so this is also possibly replaced.
