Used Gibson USA Custom Shop One-Off Formula Les Paul Electric Guitar w/OHSC


$ 2,699.95 

Welcome. You are looking at a great piece.
This is the Gibson Custom Shop Formula Les Paul Electric Guitar.
24.75" scale length. 1.69" nut width. 8 lbs 8 oz.
In 2001 Gibson offered a 'Consumer Club', where, for a subscription fee, you could have Gibson build you a custom instrument.
This is a one off Les Paul- built to customer spec.
We ran the serial through Gibson and this guitar checks out.
The heart of this beauty is pure Les Paul- mahogany body, carved maple top, and set mahogany neck.
The mahogany/maple body brings that sweet low end and midrange cut, while the mid weight also provides some great natural resonance.
The set mahogany neck brings in great tone transfer and a bit of additional warmth.
Dual Burstbucker open coil pickups take the natural tone up a notch.
The bridge position is a BB #3, the stickers came off the neck position but believed to be a #2.
These pickups are very well matched- the bridge measures 8.11k and the neck is 7.80k.
The bridge position has great lows and 3 dimensional mids- perfect for that classic Gibson crunch.
The neck position has those incredible syrupy sustained notes- the quintessential Gibson neck tone.
The one piece mahogany neck here has a fantastic feel- .82" deep at the 1st fret to .95" at the 12th fret with an oval C profile.
The look here is gorgeous- Blue finish w/ Racing Stripes, single ply cream bound body, raised Gibson logo on body, crown inlays, and black hardware.
This Gibson Formula Les Paul is in very good overall condition- typical marks from normal use as well as neck/fingerboard lacquer stresses from the board and neck expanding and contracting at different rates.
Nothing that affects the performance whatsoever.
The frets here are clean- set up with action of 3/32" at the 12th fret low E.
This auction includes the Custom Historic hardshell case in pics.
This is your chance to get your hands on a great one-off Gibson Custom Shop example for the price you want.
We were an authorized Gibson dealer for well over a decade.
Buy with confidence.
