2001 Gibson Custom Shop Silverburst Les Paul Custom
Originally delivered by Gibson to Justin Hawkins of the Darkness
Occasionally the guys at the Gibson Custom Shop design & release special guitars in extremely limited numbers either as NAMM show exhibits or just very limited production runs, this is one such guitar, it has never been retailed or played, it was purchased new as a custom order & promptly placed into storage in a smoke free climate controlled environment, it was tuned & checked before being stored.
The finish is a metallic version of the much loved Silverburst finish, the guitar features all of the usual refinements of a Gibson Les Paul Custom however, the finish certainly required the metal parts to be chrome plated rather than the standard Gold color found on a Custom!
Stunning Custom with very detailed Abalone fingerboard inlays, not a shy guitar!
