Here’s an interesting Lester. Built in the Custom Shop, this is a Les Paul Standard F. I’ve only seen a few other examples but never one quite like this one. I suspect it was an export model or even a custom order. It’s sort of a blend between a modern Les Paul Standard and the Custom Shop Class 5. The specs are top notch. The chambered body is mahogany with a carved flame maple top. The mahogany neck features a bound rosewood fingerboard with pearloid trapezoid inlays. Burstbucker 2 and 3 humbuckers dish out killer tone. Factory Sperzel locking tuners, Stopbar tailpiece and Tuneomatic bridge round out the hardware. The finish is a classy transparent red set off by gold hardware. A very luxurious Lester.

This is a great Les Paul. This example plays great with nice action and feel. It feels like a60s nec. The pickups deliver big sound and a variety of tones. Everything works as it should. This is a nice Les Paul in EX- condition. It shows light pick and clearcoat scratches as well as some light indents and dings. There’s some fading on the gold hardware.  Still a nice looking example. Comes in original case with cert.

The Gibson Custom Shop turns out some great guitars. Here’s a Les Paul with a bit more modern look and feel. Fairly uncommon, you’ll be the only one on your block to own one quite like this.
