VINTAGE FLAMED, FLAMED, FLAMED 2001 GIBSON LES PAUL R8 STANDARD HISTORIC W/OHSC 1958 58 CUSTOM SHOP REISSUE, SERIAL #8113XX. Treat yourself to this particular 2001 Gibson Les Paul R8 Custom Shop 1958 Reissue, and you’ll enjoy an extra perk right up front. Most ’58s and ’58 Reissues aren’t known for flamed-maple tops–those honors usually go to ’59s–yet this one is about as flamed as they come!  Beautiful Faded Cherry nitrocellulose thin lacquer finish that often reminds me of Lemon burst under certain lights. This Gibson Les Paul R8 guitar is a tone monster. It is Solid, unchambered nor has it been weight-relieved mahogany body and mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard. She weighs in at 8 lbs 12 oz on my USPS scale. ’58-spec features throughout, including meaty 50’s rounded neck profile, Tune-O-Matic bridge, tailpiece, tuners, and electronics.  Gorgeous shape. No finish checking. Top nearly immaculate–a couple of tiny pits only seen at the right angle that seem to be part of the original finish and don’t seem to be actual damage. Back has a few minor superficial scuffs that are too slight to photograph. Also, on the back there are some indentations as shown in the photo circled in white. Case is in great shape with only a couple of outer-edge scuffs. Includes hard shell case, with all the case candy, hang tags, Certificate of Authenticity, and case keys, etc.  Complete Package with Gibson Hard Shell Case, and lots of Case Candy Included! The Custom Shop turns out some incredible guitars and this 2001 R8 is no exception. The 1958 profile neck is nice and beefy, and the frets make bending a breeze. The tone is superlative as well. It really has that classic sound. No other guitar has this tone and feel. An incredible instrument that many folks dream of owning their entire lifetime. Stop dreaming! A new one will cost you big bucks. In fact, the price probably just went up while you were reading this. This one has big time vibe and is dripping with “Mojo” and is ready to rock.  Only selling because I’m past my “collector” phase and now need to thin the number of guitars and cases my understanding bride is willing to trip over. :-). This is your chance for an incredible deal! This Gibson Les Paul R8 looks to be in excellent to mint condition (see photos).
