By 2018 Gibson had pulled out all the stops in getting the details right on their Historic Reissues from the primer period in electric guitar history. From the thickness of the veneer on the headstock to the nickel-plated strap button, this is a Les Paul nit-pickers dream. It has been played some, as witnessed by the little "Gibson Custom" sticker on the pickguard, but that's about the only sign of use. The case is equally clean and includes the COA and all the papers Gibson included when it was new.
