Welcome, you are looking at a great piece.
This is the 2003 First Year Gibson USA Les Paul Supreme Trans Amber Electric Guitar.
24.75" scale. 1 11/16" nut width. 9 lbs 1 oz.
.83"-1.03" 1st to 12th fret neck depth.
In 2003 Gibson designed a fantastic guitar where the back was carved to match the front.
The finest materials were obtained and earmarked for this project.
The idea was to make 2,003 of these beauties for the year 2003- production fell far short of the target as carving the backs required more work than they had anticipated.
Each one of the original run is a real work of art- a lot of work and love went into these beauties.
This Supreme features a chambered mahogany body with AAAA carved maple top & back.
The combination of chambered mahogany and maple makes for a extremely loud guitar unplugged and we all know that if it's loud unplugged- it's a MONSTER plugged in.
The 498T bridge pickup enables huge chunk and awesome leads. The 490R neck pickup gives you warm cleans and thick sustaining leads.
The mahogany neck here has a comfortable chunky C profile and the ebony board with split block inlays and gold fretwire is breath-taking.
This is an extremely classy guitar with a tone that will change the way you view your other guitars forever.
Good overall condition as you can see in pics- there is the typical clearcoat lifting on the headstock face as well as light plating oxidation and normal light play wear.
Nothing that affects the performance whatsoever.
The frets are clean- set up with action of 3/32" at the 12th fret low E.
Includes the original hardshell case and case cards.
This is your chance to get your hands on a gorgeous first year issue Supreme.
We were an authorized Gibson dealer for well over a decade and were the original seller of this guitar.
Buy with confidence.
