For your consideration, Garrett Park Guitars presents this 1981 Les Paul Artist.

We're not betting folks here at Garrett Park Guitars, but if we were, we'd bet you haven't seen a Les Paul like this before. Equipped with Moog electronics, this model was short-lived, only appearing in two Gibson price lists from 1979 to 1982 when the run came to an end.

This one plays and feels like a Les Paul but it goes far beyond any other Les Paul when it comes to sound. The three switches at the bottom control compression, expansion, and lead/rhythm equalization. The two control knobs have a notch in the middle and cause the pickups to become more anemic when turned counterclockwise, and more full/punchy when turned clockwise to the point of overdrive.
