1973 GibsonLes Paul Custom – Sparkling Burgundy

We love the look of this gorgeous 1973 Gibson Les Paul Custom in its original Sparkling Burgundy finish! This particular guitar was made after this color was available for order. It seems someone custom ordered this guitar in this special, technically discontinued finish! This gold hardware has held up tremendously well, and the paint itself has beautifully faded to reveal the gold base color in some areas; particularly at the back of the three-piece neck. The front of the guitar appears more copper or bronzed. These original low frets are in great shape, and the neck is compact and easy to hold for both medium and large handed players.
