From the personal collection of Les Paul…..
His very 2004 HD.6X-Pro Digital Guitar
This is another rare opportunity to own a Les Paul Les Paul.
In June 2012, Julien’s Auctions conducted a high profile event for “Property from the Estate of Les Paul”. This particular guitar is of that provenance, with full documentation.
The HD.6X-Pro Digital Guitar:
The HD.6X Pro Digital Les Paul is the most advanced guitar-based digital controller ever produced. In addition to its two traditional magnetic humbucking pickups, the HD.6X Pro Digital Les Paul carries a unique new Hex pickup, mounted between the traditional “lead” position humbucking pickup and the bridge, which is made up of six individual humbucking-type pickups (one for each string), and forms the link between analog and digital in the system. Each of these six pickups in the Hex sends a signal from its individual string to the guitar’s onboard, studio-grade preamps and converters, where it is converted from analog to digital and sent down a standard Ethernet cable to a proprietary Break out Box (BoB for short, included). From here, the player can route the output to be processed externally in mono, stereo (splitting the three lower and three upper strings), or as six individual signals—one to each of six amps, one to each of six channels on a mixing desk, or wherever your imagination takes you. The HD.6X Pro Digital Les Paul’s onboard preamp system also includes a headphone output for in-ear monitoring, and a facility to return a monitor feed from an external mixer via the BoB and Ethernet cable, so you can play along to other sources.
Launched in 2006, this particular guitar is a preproduction run model dating two years earlier to 2004.
Condition wise, the guitar has been played lightly, with fingerprints and clouding on the hardware. Otherwise, mint. It is exactly the way that Mr. Paul had left it.
The guitar has not been played or even plugged in since purchase in order to preserve the “originality” and to avoid cross contamination with any of Mr. Paul’s DNA that may still reside on it.
Mr. Paul stored the guitar in the original padded rectangular denim case, which is affixed with his inventory label. Affixed to the handle is a note indicating that it was gifted to Mr. Paul.
Includes all hardware including the breakout box and cables.
