Click To Enlarge

 

Here is a real sweet sounding and playing Les Paul with a meaty neck and killer tone. It has a beautiful tobacco burst finish and a nice plain top with plenty of character,it's perfectly balanced and light weight at just 8 lbs 7 oz'sbut most importantly it has a confirmed factory original monster Brazilian Rosewood Fretboard. While the look of it  is amazing, one thing that pops out is the superb tone and sustain. The performance of this guitar is everything  you'd expect from the Gibson Custom Shop, with top-shelf craftsmanship & real PAF tone.  It is very rare as it's just 1 of 5 58' Les Puls with a tobacco finish made for Music Machine with a stinger headstock & Brazilian rosewood fingerboard. Make this rare beauty yours and add some investment grade beauty to your collection. This guitar is super clean or near mint condition, the Brazilian Rosewood alone makes this guitar a rare & excellent find, add to that the fact that it has the original case, candy, papers/tags, & COA and you have a true collectors delight.


Stinger Series Gibson Historic Reissue Les Paul guitars


 

Simply put, The Stinger series are built for tone. The brainchild of Dave Carpenter and overlooked by Edwin Wilson, these guitars all had handpicked woods and were built with the upmost care. They were looking to make something special and they most certainly did. All of the Stinger Series Gibson Les Paul Standard (1954, 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, & 1960) Historic Reissues have Brazilian Rosewood fingerboards. The Brazilian Rosewood being used at this time is some of the most visually stunning wood I have ever seen.
