A Rare Purple Sparkle Les Paul Standard with Nickel Hardware and Factory Grover Tuners. In darker light the Sparkle finish is subtle but get it under the lights and it Sparkles like a fine diamond. The pickups have been upgraded to Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates. An excellent condition guitar with some minor play wear and one chip out of the neck tone knob skirt. The bridge is the correct type but looks like it might be newer. In 2000 Gibson came out with a run of Sparkle finishes. However this is the first Purple Sparkle Finish we have encountered and was possibly a test run or one off guitar. Included is the original hardshell case.
