1982 Kalamazoo-Era Standard '82
This is an opportunity to own a piece of History. I have not seen too many of these over the years, whereas the Heritage 80 and 82's are relatively common. For those of you who don't know, Gibson was going through a period of great strife with decliningsales andprofit margins causing Gibson to pit the Nashville factory against the Kalamazoo factory-ultimately leading to the 1984 closure of the Kalamazoo plant-and the consequential forming of the Heritage guitar company.
This guitar was built, as described below to show the Nashville folks how to build a real '59! Among its features include the legendary Tim Shaw PAF pickupss-which many people believe are the finest and most accurate recreation ofan authenticPAF.
Here is an excerpt from the LesPaul Forum
Standard 82 Les Paul
The Les Paul Standard 82 was made in Kalamazoo. The folklore for this guitar is that the luthiers in Kalamazoo wanted to show the luthiers in Nashville how to make a "real" limited edition LP reissue that was of high quality and closer to vintage specs. This guitar has the thin binding in the cutaway, ABR-1 bridge, narrow headstock, brown backplates for the control cavity and switch, large tortoiseshell side dot markers, “Made in USA” stamp on the back of the headstock, and tulip style Grovers. The example in this article weighs 10 lbs. The Standard 82s have a truss rod cover that says "Standard 82" on them, breathtaking quilted tops, in natural or honeyburst.
