Gibson Historic Les Paul Standard, double cutaway

Price: AUD $4,775.00

Listen to this guitar

One of the coolest looking Les Pauls we’ve ever had through! From the initial 1998/99 production run by Gibson Historic, these limited edition double-cut Standards came in an assortment of exotically named colors, including Red Hot Tamale, Black Pepper, and this absolutely stunning Green Jalapeno.



Completed in late February of 1999, the guitar is still in MINT- condition, its original owner declaring, "It was too pretty to play.” It’s literally been in its case, unplayed, for 23 years – it still has the original Gibson strings from when it left the factory! (We will put a couple of sets in the case for you)


Topflight Gibson appointments

From tip to toe, it’s topflight Gibson appointments all the way:-


Mahogany back
AAA flame Maple top
Translucent nitro lacquer
Mahogany neck
Bound Rosewood fingerboard
Trapezoid inlays
490R and 498T pickups
Tune-o-matic bridge


Very subtle

When we got this in, we thought the back of the guitar was black, but once we were able to see it in good light, we realised it’s actually a very dark green, in keeping with the Jalapeno. A very subtle, very cool look.


Neck carve

One other very cool feature is the neck carve. This is one of the nicest Gibson necks we’ve ever encountered. It’s thin, very much like a Rickenbacker neck, making for lightning fast, extra comfy playing. We don’t know if all the Double-Cut Standards had the same neck, but this one is amazing.



And those 490-series pickups! All the grunt, all the bottom end, all the tight high end snap and snarl you could ever wish for in a Les Paul. Check out our soundfile.


Free courier delivery

As noted at the top, the guitar is virtually BRAND NEW, and, complete with its original Gibson Historic hard shell case, (see pic # 7), FREE COURIER DELIVERY is included to any address in Australia. ($100 airfreight to New Zealand, $175 to the US, Canada, UK and mainstream European countries. International freight added at checkout)
