1960 GibsonLes Paul Tenor – Cherry

Here’s an oddball for your consideration; an employee made 1960 Gibson Les Paul Tenor in its original Cherry finish! No one can be certain if this was a custom order, or just an employee one off, but one thing is for sure, this one is rare and cool!! Tenor guitars were popular throughout the 20th century as a way for banjo players to play along with 6 string guitar players without having to learn a new instrument, tuning or style. This particular tenor has fared very well over the years, and it certainly would be a stand out in any collection!
