1978 GibsonLes Paul Custom – Cherry Sunburst

If you have ever wanted to get your Ace Frehley on, this beautiful 1978 Gibson Les Paul Custom in Cherry Sunburst is for you! This model features a bright burst pattern everywhere except the front of the headstock and fretboard, making this guitar stand out. The front of the body showcases a beautiful flamed centerpiece, while the back of the body rivals this with a swirly grain pattern and a finish that is a little bit more subdued in color. The look of this guitar is all about contrast, with the black appointments leaping off this vibrant finish. The guitar has a bold tone regarding its sound, even unplugged. Amped up, the two well-balanced humbuckers bring it to another level!
