1978 Gibson Les Paul Standard$5,995.00
Very scarce factory natural finish – none listed in the famous Gibson shipping totals book, but they made a few, presumably as special orders – 3-piece maple top with some random figure, non-sandwich Honduran mahogany body, 3-piece maple neck with volute and “Made in USA” stamp, bound Indian rosewood fingerboard with crown inlays, 1 & 21/32″ nut width, “Standard” truss rod cover, cream guard, a pair of “patent stamp” humbuckers dated to 1978, 1978 pots, neck pickup cavity had ink “natural” stamp, gold reflector knobs, Nashville bridge and stoptail. Not light at 10 pounds, but tons of sustain. So, a very unusual (and attractive) finish for a peak Norlin Les Paul Standard, plays and sounds great and you’ll probably be the only person on your block with one quite like it. Comes in its original hard case, made in Nashville, Tennessee, USA.
