1982 Gibson 30th Anniversary Les Paul Standard Reissue Goldtop
Click To Enlarge

Here is a PERFECTLY perserved 31 year old gem of a vintage guitar!! It's an all original time capsule clean and very sweet 30th Anniversary Les Paul Goldtop; a true "vintage vintage-reissue". It is mind-blowing to think that more time has actually passed from 1982-2013 than from 1952-1982!! It has now been 61 years since Les Paul first introduced the solid-body guitar that would shape music & popular culture as we know it. By the late 70's, the "Norlin-era" Les Pauls had strayed considerably from Paul's original vison, sparking a demand for "vintage-correct" 50's reissues. The "Heritage-80 Series" was so successful in 1980-81, that several Limited Edition reissues were produced between 1982-1983. As things go in cycles: Here we are another 30+ years later, and the market for 50's Les Paul reissues is as strong as it has ever been!! 

 

There were only a few of these produced at all and this one with a "C ####" serial, is #28. In addition to having a very low serial number, this has to be the cleanest example in circulation (and really as near-mint as any 31 year old guitar you'll see!!) Aside from the aesthetics, the best feature in my opinion about this guitar is the original Tim Shaw  137 & 138 PAF's that sound absolutely awesome and the very very sought after. Although 1982 commemorates the 30th Anniversary of the 1952 Goldtop, this guitar's features are much closer to the more popular & valued 1957 model. With the introduction of Tune-o-Matic/Stopbar combo & Humbucking pickups (1957 was the first year PAF HB's were produced) this guitar set the blue-print that remains unchanged to this day.. The Fretboard also has a beautiful and appearance and feel. It looks like nice reddish East indian Rosewood and It looks similar to the original 50's Les Pauls. Some people believe that Brazilian rosewood was used on several early 80's reissues... And many have been marketed this way. It is possible and either way the rosewood used on this baby is just excellent and truly a pleasure to play.

 

Here is your chance to own a Collector-Grade guitar that pays tribute to Gibson's finest hour, and carries some legtimate historical weight of it's own...
