1998 Gibson Les Paul R7 Black Beauty

Garrett Park Guitars

This guitar is in our Hall of Fame Collection and is no longer available for purchase.

For your consideration, Garrett Park Guitars presents this 1998 Gibson Les Paul R7 Black Beauty

The lines of this guitar are classic. The Gibson 57 Custom Les Paul Black Beauty features an aged ebony finish with double vintage cream binding, 3 Custom Bucker pickups, a one-piece ebony fingerboard, and a quarter-sawn mahogany neck. The headstock is adorned with a mother-of-pearl inlay of the Custom Split Diamond design, and the guitar is equipped with gold hardware. The three-way selector knob is true to three humbucker Les Pauls: Rhythm is just neck pickup, middle is the middle pickup and the bridge together, and lead is full-on bridge, for that classic Les Paul sound.

This guitar is a faithful reproduction of the original Black Beauty's, both in sound and appearance. Comes with OHSC and original case candy.
