For your consideration, Garrett Park Guitars presents this 1998 Gibson '58 Reissue Les Paul Butterscotch.

This guitar is a fantastic player with a lovely realistic Eastern Maple top finish in butterscotch. The 1990's were the Good Wood period of the Gibson Custom Shop and this one is a prime example. It presents a very realistic look just like a real faded 1959 Burst. The top has an aged look to it but the real secret is the tone and playability of this guitar!

This is no closet queen and it has the dings to prove it was loved and played. Back has some slight belt wear too. THe original Custom Art & Historic case is a little pinged too, but it works great and will protect the guitar just like a mint one would. The frets are in great shape and in fact this guitar is set up and ready to play! 57 Classic pickups and original electronics!

Gibson hand tags (no certificate in 1998). Nice chunky but not too chunky neck!
