RARE! Les Paul Collectors Choice No. 34.
Extremely limited run. Custom Shop USA 'BLACKBURST'.
This is Number 5 of a Pilot Run! Only 45 were made for North America and a total of 100 worldwide!
Released in 2015. (Lenny Kravitz owns a prototype).
The story goes: In 1960, at the request of its original owner, Gibson did what would be unthinkable today; they painted an Ebony finish over a beautiful Sunburst Les Paul. At the time however, the motivation for this odd special order was simple, as the player placing it couldn’t afford the higher cost of a Les Paul Custom but had fallen in love with the shiny Black nitrocellulose finish. Over time, evidence of what lies beneath the factory applied Ebony finish began to present itself and a very sought after 1960 Les Paul was in the making. Today, a guitar known as “Blackburst” resides in private collection.
This is the ultimate collector's guitar! Try to find another one!!
