Another new limited edition release from Gibson and it is a beauty, though a bit pricy at $6,000. Details at Gibson….
“Classic Les Paul lines are upgraded with a sharp Florentine cutaway that mirrors the legendary Gibson archtops, while the weight-relieved mahogany body wears luscious highly figured maple on its top and back. Pear split-block inlays, gold hardware throughout, gold Speed Knobs and a bound headstock with abalone Supreme inlay and gold truss-rod cover complete the look. But this Supreme is more than just a trophy piece: two alnico humbucking pickups—a 490 in the neck position and hotter 498 in the bridge—give you all the tones that made the original Les Paul Standard famous, while a genuine Bigsby™ vibrato enhances the atmosphere. The Limited Run Les Paul Supreme Florentine comes protected in a Vintage Brown Gibson hardshell case.
