• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

FS: 1997 Gibson R8 (non-historic) one-off order Quilt Top in Lemonburst

Hi friends, selling this excellent guitar. A '97 Custom Shop R8 that is not stamped as a historic reissue because it was a one-off order from a guitar shop in TX most likely due to the quilt top. It follows R8 historic specs with long neck tenon, one-piece lightweight mahogany back, ABR, 57 classics, etc. So although it's not stamped as a historic, it follows all the specs.

No cracks or breaks. Nut replaced with bone. Tone pots replaced with CTS 500k audio taper with Emerson bumblebee PIOs. Big big neck. Please read the Reverb listing below for more details. Contact me with any questions. Currently asking $4000.00. Depending on how you'd want to buy, I'd be willing to move on price quite a bit.
