2008 Gibson LPR8


Summary: This is a 2008 Gibson Custom Shop 1958 Les Paul reissue with a plain top and a beautiful tobacco sunburst finish.

Body: Mahogany top with a fully bound plain maple cap.

Neck: Fully bound mahogany neck with a solid indian rosewood fretboard and block inlays. The nut width is 1 11/16”. The frets look great with no divits and lots of life left!

Pickups/Hardware: Two burst bucker pickups, 2 volume knobs, 2 tone knobs and a 3-way switch. Nickel hardware with Gibson Deluxe tuning keys.

Cosmetics: This instrument looks awesome from across the room but it does have some cosmetic wear once you are holding it in your hands. There is a chip in the finish near the top strap button. There are several small dings on the top and one larger ding near the bottom tone knob. The headstock has a visible ding below the high E string tuning key. The back of the instrument has a few nicks and some wear around the edges but there isn’t very much (if any) buckle rash!

Playability: This guitar plays wonderfully – the action is low and the instrument plays without any dead spots or buzz. This instrument has been professionally set up with 10’s by our in-house guitar technician.

Mods/Repairs: none

Weight:    9 lbs,      7 oz.

Case: Original hard shell case with COA
