1998 Gibson Les Paul Custom Shop R8 1958 reissue MINT COLLECTORS PIECE VERY RARE
NOTE: This is an absolute TIME CAPSULE/Collector listing that, as you may know never comes up for sale, let alone in this condition and with this KILLER TOP. Before I get in to the description of the guitar, I would like to mention that this R8 from this year is VERY RARE, is in mint condition and sounds and plays better than any R9 1959 reissue Ive ever had the pleasure of playing. It shows no wear at almost 25 years old, but please refer to the pictures and my track record. It is 100% original and not modified in any way whatsoever! I certainly havent come across a 90s R8 like this before. If you are looking at this post, you already know what it is. It is the lighter weight weight (about 8.3lbs), non chambered, VERY RARE and most highly regarded 1998 Gibson Les Paul R8 1958 reissue in the most beautiful and sought after amber/tiger burst. What you dont know is that this guitar is in mint condition and it shows basically no wear for a guitar that is going on 25 years old.
Furthermore, it has aged beyond beautifully and it looks and sounds more like the real deal than a reissue. The original frets have 100% life left.
The original hard shell case with dark red interior is included of course and is fully functional. Honestly, it is almost impossible coming across a Gibson Les Paul from this year in this amazing of condition. It has what I call a 59 slim neck that is still a bit thinner than a neck typically found on R9s and it plays incredibly. The tone and sustain is simply ridiculous as its a 90s non chambered model, but Ill let you be the judge.Unplugged, the strings ring out loudly and endlessly and is well above average and this is the way I determine the quality of my Gibsons. If it sound good unplugged, its a keeper, and this one goes beyond that. Plugged in to my Marshall SL5 it is a match made in heaven and being a non chambered model, the tone and sustain is second to none. It has been set up, the frets are amazing and it is ready to rock. The top is absolutely amazing.
Dont let this one slip away as I know it will not last and I speak from experience. Furthermore, I reserve the right to end this sale at any time should my guitar sell locally or on other websites listed. Ive described this guitar to the best of my ability.
