Here we have a gorgeous 1973 Gibson Les Paul Custom in original Sparkling Burgundy! This color was introduced by Gibson in 1965 as a response to the massively popular Candy Apple Red from Fender, but wasn’t offered from Gibson for long! This particular guitar was made after the color was phased out, meaning someone custom ordered this guitar right from Gibson! The gold hardware has held up tremendously well, and the paint itself has beautifully faded to reveal the gold base color in some areas; particularly the back of the three-piece neck. The low frets are in great shape, and the neck carve is compact and easy to hold for both medium and large handed players. The pickups are nicely paired with 7.65K in the bridge, and 7.16K in the neck, for a warm counterbalanced tone.
It weighs in at 10 lbs and 6 oz and comes with original Gibson Case.
