Gibson Custom Shop “CME Spec” 1957 Les Paul Standard Reissue w/ Carmelita Neck 2024 – Gold Top VOS

$ 4500.00

This is a 2024 special run for Chicago Music Exchange. A ’57 Reissue with a ’59 Carmelita neck (a perfect combination!). It is in excellent condition. I purchased it from CME as “New/Demo” and it came to me with a ding in the headstock (shown) and two virtually un-noticeable divots, one next to each pickup (these are shown, but could only be picked up in certain light). I intended to keep this guitar forever, but I stumbled onto a vintage piece that I’m trying to purchase. Therefore, I already have to let this beauty go.

Weight: 9 lbs 1 oz.

I have replaced the strap buttons with Mojo Axe buttons as they have a more solid screw and provide better security. The original buttons are included.

I have replaced the pickups with Suhr SSV (neck) and SSH (bridge) and split the coils with a push/pull volume pot on the bridge volume. The original “CME Spec” pickups and the original 500k pot are all included.

Case candy is included as shown.

I will ship, fully insured, only to the lower 48 United States.
