Rare limited run 1993 Gibson Les Paul Standard with a Candy Apple Red top and gold hardware. According to Gibson, this model was an upgraded Standard for 1993 with the cool finish, gold hardware, and – rare for the Standard model – an Ebony fretboard! Included is the original deluxe Gibson brown hardshell case with interior “blanket”.
Features of this model include the single cutaway Mahogany body with a bound carved Maple top, cream color binding on the top and fretboard, what appears to be a one piece Mahogany neck with some figuring in the grain, smooth Ebony fretboard with trapezoid inlays, gold hardware, Gibson Deluxe tuners with vintage-style “green” keystone buttons, gold “speed” knobs, Tune-o-matic bridge, and stopbar tailpiece. The “Standard” electronics consist of two covered humbucker pickups(the pickups listed for the 1993 Standard were the 490 R Rhythm-Neck and 498 T -Treble-Bridge) with volume & tone controls for each and a 3-way pickup selector switch. According to Gibson they did not start “styling and documenting” their necks until early 2002 – but in my opinion this one would be closer to the 59 Rounded profile.
This instrument is in very good condition with some very minor surface scratches and a few indents on the top that you see when you turn it in the light – the color is still vibrant. The back has some belt buckle rash mostly in the clear finish. Considering it’s 16 years old the gold hardware has relatively light wear/tarnish and there’s only minor fretwear – No cracks, breaks, or issues, and fully original! It plays exceptionally well with nice low action, looks cool, and sounds great. Check the opening no reserve bid or hit the Buy It Now to avoid getting picked off and we’ll include an extra set of Ernie Ball Slinky strings, a string winder, and some Fender picks ! Thanks for looking and good luck!
