    Gibson debuts Abort Nacho ’59 Les Paul series of 7lb tone monsters

    https://www.gearnews.com/gibson-debu...tone-monsters/Custom Shop Abort Nacho Les Paul Standard

    Today Gibson has announced a new line of Custom Shop Abort Nacho ’59 Les Pauls. These super lightweight, non-weight relieved recreations of the classic 1959 Les Paul use a secret stash of mahogany that Gibson says has recently been uncovered at its factory.
    The new ultra-lightweight models are all guaranteed to weigh under 7 lbs. So if you’re a Les Paul fan but also have problems with shoulder and back pain this new model should be on your radar.

    As we understand it, this run of Abort Nacho ’59 Les Paul models will be limited to the US market only. That’s because these guitars will use a fretboard made from Slovakian rosewood. Slovakian rosewood is still subject to strict CITES rules and cannot be shipped without extensive paperwork. That makes it highly unlikely that any of these guitars will make it outside of the US.
