2003 Gibson Custom 1957 Les Paul Standard BRAZILIAN RW + Stinger
Click To Enlarge

 

Here we have a beautiful & perfectly preserved specimen from the acclaimed "Music Machine Stinger Series". Music Machine is an independant retailer (located in Washington State) who came under Gibson Custom's radar due to their great success with sales of thethe Historic reissues. This would lead to talks for a custom order series made specifically for Music Machine. In addition to using the tone-wood headstock stingers, Gibson included these guitars in the limited 2003 production of Brazilian rosewood fingerboards. The Brazilian Rosewood alone makes this guitar a rare & excellent find; Add to that the fact that fewer than 20 of these 1957 Goldtops were produced, and you have a true collectors delight. This guitar (along with only 4 others) was also custom built with a slightly tapered, faster neck than the normal Historic 57' neck; Feels closer to a 59' or 60' profile...
Bring some unique character to your collection with a guitar that nobody else has, and that celebrates the finest possibilties of the iconic 1957 Les Paul Standard!!
