Pre-Owned 1997 Gibson Les Paul 1958 Flame Top Reissue in Butterscotch finish with an exceptional figured maple top. Includes Gibson hard shell case.

A stunning 1958 Reissue from Gibson’s renowned and increasingly collectible ‘Goodwood’ period. Finished in Butterscotch, this rare Custom Shop example features a sublime Flame Top; certainly the best we’ve seen on this model. 

Gibson’s 1997 production predominantly allocated highly flamed maple to their R9 production. As a consequence few R8’s were produced as beautiful as this example. Subsequently this superb example benefits from Gibson’s legendary 58’ neck profile with the all beauty of a highly figured '59 Reissue.

Les Paul Reissues from this period are now accredited as being some of Gibson’s most desirable and coveted guitars. The combination of incredible looks, playability, and sound, justify why they’ve become the focus of so many Les Paul players and collectors. 

Condition: Very Good. Pickups have been upgraded to PG Bare Knuckles and a pot changed. It shows some light scratches on the back and a couple shallow superficial indentations but overall very clean with only light signs of use.
