Please go to my website to view many additional pictures of this rare guitar. This is a very unique guitar that was Custom Ordered from Gibson. The body is a semi-hollow body with a carved out mahogany body with a center block running from the neck/body joint to the stop tailpiece, two piece maple top, 57 Classic Pickups, Gold Hardware, Grover Tuners, Tobacco Sunburst Finish with Dark Walnut Back and Sides, and Gibson Custom Shop Logo on the back of the headstock with inked on serial number. Being a semi hollow body the guitar has impressive acoustic volume along with added sustain and resonance while not just being a ball of uncontrollable feedback when amplified due to the lack of F-holes. The guitar is in excellent plus condition displaying very little playwear with some hardware oxidation and a few fine finish checking lines on the top. This is in a time when Gibson was starting to experiment with semi-hollow Les Pauls that would include the Les Paul Florentine model. This is a very rare Custom Ordered one off guitar as confirmed by Gibson, that if commissioned today I can only cringe at what Gibson would now charge to make a comparative guitar. Guitar comes with its original brown pink lined hardshell case.
